“Strengths: Smooth athlete with natural body control and foot quickness to create some space and work the middle of the field. He shows off his toughness before and after the catch, highpointing and coming down with contested receptions and also fighting for every yard after the grab. He has soft hands and usually catches everything his way, staying focused from snap to whistle.
Weaknesses: Street lacks ideal top-end speed. . Street looks to finish, but his lack of breakaway speed shows as a ballcarrier, struggling to elude defenders or create after the catch. –Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
