Kadarius Calloway is one of the most intriguing prospects in the nation. I am not a fan of giving players listed as athletes high rankings. Normally if a player doesn’t have a defined position before they arrive on campus, they’re unlikely to live up to the hype. They will spend much of their college career trying to find where they fit in best. Just because a player is good at several things in high school, does not mean he will be great at one thing in college.
Calloway is different because he could develop to an All-SEC player at two positions.
As a receiver, he is a natural, confident pass catcher with quick, strong hands. He demonstrates very good body control with the ability to adjust to throws outside of frame and can track the ball well over his shoulder. He led his high school in receiving yards (770) while averaging over 25 yards a catch.
As a Safety, he could utilize his excellent range and wingspan to make plays in pass coverage. He consistently gets a good break on the ball and is quick to get in position to undercut. He gets over routes as well with ease and has excellent high-point and ball skills.
Calloway Wins most 50/50 balls and provides great matchups on taller receivers in the red-zone. He has experience in man and understands the concepts of press coverage and gaining leverage with his long arms.
For NFL potential, he might best fit at safety. However, I believe he would be most effective at the collegiate level as a wide receiver in Mike Leach’s system.
