    Scouting Report

    Pack will be a wide receiver that will be physically ready to compete for early playing time in Tallahassee. He is around 190-pounds now, but he has the frame to add another 20-pounds or so while maintaining his quickness. He is more quick then fast, but he a receiver who can line up anywhere on the field and be a threat. He is a physical wideout who can catch the ball in traffic and he knows how to go up and get the ball too. He can work on his cuts in and out of his breaks while running routes as well as his speed down the field to separate more from top corners. Look for Pack to be a 210-215 pound receiver down the road who can make big plays or just help move the chains. Scout saw him in person last week and he will make a move up the rankings in the near future.
