Lightning fast and tough as nails. Incredible speed and burst in the open field. May very well break the 40-yard dash record. Raw as a receiver, but shows great breaking ability in and out of routes and solid hands. Absorbs the ball extremely naturally and is able to make difficult catches seem routine. Used effectively on short routes, such as bubble screens, slants, ins, etc. where he can get into a sliver of daylight and take one to the house with his speed. Struggles breaking out of routes back to the ball. Doesn't seemingly have the body control to stop his body on a dime and turn back towards the ball and still maintain separation. Could be used as a field stretcher, but Alabama's offense relied on him making plays after the catch. Decent deep ball tracking ability, but doesn't have a surplus of evidence on tape with the way he was used. Struggles at the LOS with his release. Good move to create separation, but then struggles to explode out of it before the defender flips his hips and matches up with him again. Raw as a receiver in these facets, but all the tools and traits are there to be taught and trained up. With effective coaching, he'll be able to put together some release packages and learn how to utilize his leverage and speed to his strengths. Will be a nightmare for slower, bigger corners in the NFL on go routes. Very little evidence of contested catch situations due to the way Alabama's offense was scripted to get the receivers to play in space. Solid hands though. Overall, an incredible athlete who shows the traits to be molded into a phenomenal receiver for the modern NFL. Combine ratings should be off the charts and he'll go high in the NFL Draft. Question remains on whether or not he'll be able to progress and develop on the traits to become a more well-rounded receiver.

Fantasy Impact

Ruggs didn't play in Week 15 but he'll return for Saturday's showdown with the Dolphins. It's a brutal matchup for a player who was already struggling to produce consistent fantasy results. Consider the rookie speedster a WR4 for the fantasy finals.
