Kubecka is a very exciting receiver to watch that is a mismatch nightmare for most. He is quick of the LOS, sh0ws quick feet, and can make the field turf fly up when he runs his routes. He has nasty cuts that can brake ankles, he’s a got soft hands and can block as well, a very vestal tile player that could even play tight end or outside receiver at the next level and dominate.
