This is one smooth and fluid prospect. Rhodes may have more natural gracefulness as an athlete than just about anyone in this class. He has a wiry, lean frame and he is stronger than you might think. He possesses fluidity, speed, sudden quickness off the line and the ability to stretch the field. He gets over the top of defenders in a hurry. He shows excellent surge off the line of scrimmage and is a quality route runner. Reaches top gear rapidly. He has a good feel for attacking coverage, is very quick in and out of his cuts and shows he can get separation. Stems and weaves DBs to gain leverage. Shows outstanding burst in all his change-of-direction skills. He simply knows how to get open. Has a very nice feel for finding soft spots in zone coverage and settling. Seems to have a good sense of his surroundings. His hands are excellent. Is very natural as a pass catcher.
