Table inside Article
The speedster of the draft class, Worthy’s deep speed and explosive movement skills had teams reeling in the secondary. Plays with fluidity and flare at the same time. He’ll weave through the middle of the field without problem and take the top off as well Not the most instinctual receiver in the class. Will spend time stuck in coverage rather than anticipate the openings. Has a small tendency to waste steps as a route runner. Luckily for him, he can make that time up with his speed. Just something to clean up.

OVERVIEW: Worthy was always in the day one or day two conversations, but it wasn't with the same level of interest before breaking the 40-yard dash record at the NFL Scouting Combine. His blazing fast 4.21 official time passed John Ross' initial mark of 4.22 set back in 2017. But that wasn't the only mark that Worthy left in Indianapolis. He really prompted conversations with elite numbers in the broad (131 inches) and vertical (41 inches) jumps. All of the athleticism comes paired with his excellent production over the last two seasons in Austin.

COMPARISON: Jordan Addison
