Senior highlights

Evaluation notes

Lamb is a versatile receiver prospect with the speed to take the top off defenses. Possesses sudden athleticism that allows quickness off the snap, separation from DB's, and good top-end speed downfield. Home run threat over the top and as a run-after-catch playmaker. Quick feet that allow for sudden cutbacks as a receiver and return man.

Lacks ideal bulk but possesses frame to add significant weight. That would also help with improving strength. Flashes outstanding body control and high-point ability in jump-ball/red-zone scenarios. Willing blocker who looks for big hit on crackback opportunities.

Assembled an historic senior season in 2016 with 2,000-plus receiving yards, one of only four such single-season performances in TXHSFB history. Talented receiver prospect who projects to high-major level. - Gabe Brooks
