Quite a diminutive WR but a deep threat in every sense of the word. Herron is a senior out of Wyoming who has been a big play wide receiver for them and is having his best season yet. He goes about 5'9" and 185, decently built for his height but he's never going to be a pure physical wide receiver, simply a guy who can go deep and stretch out a defense that has to allow for his considerable speed. As far as his speed goes, he's basically got track star speed and it shows out on the football field as he has made some HUGE plays for Wyoming throughout the years. He especially lit up Texas last season, had a massive game that caught nationwide attention.
He doesn't have outstanding lateral quickness, but pure speed that makes him a dangerous vertical threat, he can blow by pretty much anyone and win any foot race down the field. Beyond that he's got very good hands, catches with his hands, not his body, he needs to improve a lot as a route runner but in terms of a weapon to stretch a defense, he looks like a good one. Appears to be a mid 3rd rounder currently. He does tend to shy away from physical contact at times, but for what he does, being a true deep threat, he does very well and could be an instant contributor in the NFL.
