Simi Fehoko 2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Name: Simi Fehoko
Weight: 222 lbs
Overall Rank: 104
Position Rank: WR18
Strengths: Possessing ideal height and weight, Fehoko also made some noise by running a 4.44 40-yard dash at Stanford’s Pro Day. The combination of genetics alone make him draftable. Fehoko plays receiver with some recklessness, but it allows him to make plays outside his frame that he doesn’t have any business making. He fights for possessions and plays physical at the catchpoint on 50-50 balls. Stanford was comfortable moving him throughout the formation and essentially slid him in as their “big play” receiver after JJ Arcega-Whiteside was drafted. Fehoko will be a special teams contributor immediately and offers homerun potential with speed and power as a boundary receiver.
Weaknesses: Fehoko relies too much on raw athleticism to win and needs to develop some nuance to his game. He struggles versus press coverage at the line of scrimmage, but also is easily distracted in his route stem by corners that don’t back down from the physical challenge. Fehoko doesn’t have much college experience or production and will be a bit of a project as he transitions to the NFL. He suffered a bit from focus drops and, although he generally has solid hands, can become too lackadaisical on the field from play-to-play.
What I Love: Fehoko has the ideal physical frame and tools, as well as competitive family lines that make him an intriguing developmental project. Worst-case scenario is a receiver that wins vertically from time to time and offers special teams value as the last receiver up on game day.
