Switzer is a dangerous WR in the open field.  He always makes the first defender miss.  He is also an electrifying return specialist.  He is more quick than fast.  He has terrific hands and runs crisp routes.  He has physical limitations, but should become a QB’s best friend at the next level due to his consistency.  He is one of the most underrated slot receivers in this draft.  Even though he will be drafted somewhere on Day 3, he should outplay his draft position.
