Dynasty Rookie Draft Profile: Nathaniel Dell

Nathaniel Dell Dynasty Rookie Draft Outlook

Rail-thin speedster (165 lbs). Utilized in the slot, in motion, and in bunch formations a lot at Houston to give him free releases at the line. He’s best suited for slot usage in the NFL. Immediately his speed jumps off the page. Quick feet help him beat many nickels off the line. He drops from fourth to second gear easily on curls and comebacks. An early and late separator. He is a precise route runner who is lightning-quick in and out of his breaks. While he can be pushed off his route if corners can get their hands on him, Dell also flashes the ability to separate from the outside with speed releases. His ability to stretch the field is a nice wrinkle. He ranked 11th in passer rating when targeted 20-plus yards down the field in 2022 (minimum 20 deep targets).

Player Comp: Travis Benjamin

Nathaniel Dell 2023 NFL Draft Outlook

A highly productive college receiver with an impressive combination of speed and flexibility to put stress on opposing secondaries from the slot, and who can be dangerous after the catch because of his elusiveness, but who is also smaller than your typical pro receiver and may find it difficult to release at the line against more physical pro defensive backs. Could conceivably put himself in the second-day conversation with a strong pre-draft process, but as of now, looks more like an early third-day option.

Projection: Round 4
