Diamond in the Rough: Dillon Gresham 

Dillon Gresham is a 4⭐ Wide Receiver from San Jacinto (CA). Gresham stands at 6”1’ 165-Pounds and is an extremely fast and elusive prospect that can turn on the burners on deep balls or force defenders to miss tackles in the open field. His speed and ball-tracking skills make him a very viable option on the deep ball. You can also dump the ball to him in screens or check downs and let him go to work creating his own space and making defenders miss.
