Here are some basics from the NFL.com profile of Enunwa:

STRENGTHS Looks the part with terrific size, long arms and an NFL musculature. Can elevate and snatch throws above his head. Strong after the catch. Sheer size and brawn to block out corners outside. Has hustle traits. Knows where the sticks are and is very football smart. Excellent intangibles — team captain with a professional approach and leadership traits. Was a 21-year-old senior.
WEAKNESSES Lacks elite top-end speed to separate vertically. Shows some hip tightness. Is not fluid or sudden out of breaks (wastes steps). Not a natural catcher — lets throws into his body, double catches some and drops catchable throws.
BOTTOM LINE Big, tough, athletic, West Coast receiver who broke out as a senior. Has a mixture of “Z” and “X” traits and could even be viewed as a developmental H-back prospect.

With the improved play, Quincy Enunwa certainly earned roster consideration, and will definitely get some during training camp.
