OVERVIEW

One of my favorite sleepers, Tillman is the perfect round 3 option as a Corey Davis replacement. His 2021 film as a big bodied possession target is extremely impressive. If he didn't get hurt this year, he'd be locked into round two.

SUMMARY

A well built wide out with long arms, big hands and hang time leaping ability. Tillman was superb in 2021, catching 64 passes for over 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns. He hauled in a whopping 13 of his 18 contested catch opportunities (per PFF).

If that wasn’t enough, he posted lines of 7 receptions for 152 yards and a touchdown against Alabama and 10 catches for 200 yards and a touchdown against Georgia that season.

Unfortunately he didn’t match that production in 2022 due to an ankle injury. Although he had to miss the Senior Bowl, he did get healthy for the combine with solid testing marks at his size of a 37” vertical, 128” broad (86th percentile) and 1.53 ten yard split (68th percentile). He has a relative athletic score of 9.22 out of 10.


Tillman has excellent hands and a frame that can shield defenders to win in the short and intermediate areas. He plays almost entirely on the outside, a rarity in this class. Defensive backs had a tough time tackling him one on one in the open field due to his strength.

Overall, if he can regain 2021 form he has the talent and mentality to be a long time starter. He’s a top five wide receiver in this class.
