Consistent maybe, but not too dependable or reliable.
I meant his hands. Also if you've seen some Ole Miss games this season, you'd see that the QB play has been up and down, additionally early in the season teams were doubling Moncrief, as their other receivers have stepped up, Moncrief has seen single coverage more frequently and has put up some huge games lately.
His biggest weakness is his route running, he needs to be more precise, needs to develop more in that area but he's a big, 6'2"-6'3", 220lb receiver with speed to beat a defense vertically, I think there's a lot to like there.
"Ole Miss' Donte Moncrief has most of the attributes expected of an elite receiver, including a 6-foot-3, 226-pound frame, breakaway speed and a pair of hands that rarely lets him down when catching the football.About the only thing missing is the ego.
So when Moncrief's season started slowly, the soft-spoken junior didn't complain. He knew quarterback Bo Wallace would find him. "
