The purpose of this series is to provide a set of positives and negatives for devy prospects. I also provide a suggestion of where I would take this player in a start-up devy only draft and potential fantasy impact. For the purpose of this evaluative player article, a combination of film and analytics were used to formulate my opinion.

Just looking at the basic wide receiver stats in the chart above, his average YPC is a robust 20.3 for his career thus far at FSU. I focused on Terry’s performance in the FSU vs. Clemson game in 2019 where he had 2 receptions for 83 yards and a TD. To preface my comments, Clemson dominated every facet of this game from the very first snap. They dominated to a final score of 45-14, and honestly, it felt worse. However, Terry had several moments and my notebook highlighted a specific play where he badly beat a Clemson corner, but a poorly thrown ball resulted in a PBU. Had more velocity been used the ball that led Terry, he would have broken off a 40+ yard TD. Terry had a few plays where he beat his assignment off the LOS but due to the atrocity at OL for FSU, Blackman and Hornibrook were unable to process through their progressions quick enough to find Terry. Overall, Terry was often the best athlete on the FSU offense and he repeatedly beat defenses with his athleticism. He is creative in the open field, especially for a young player, and put together some highlight reel footage. Terry has a good understanding of his size, and uses it advantageously to win 50/50 balls. He has better game speed than I expected.
I mentioned in the section above that Terry beat his assignment off the LOS in the Clemson game, but I felt frustrated watching other parts of that game and others to see that it was not consistently displayed. His footwork appears to need some work to allow more consistency in getting off the LOS cleanly, and that is something I think can be coached and developed. I would like to see Terry have more refinement in shorter routes and use some of that creativity he possesses in that part of the field. Lastly, more focus on plays where he is not targeted can only improve his draft stock.
Projected ADP (Devy Start-up): Right now, I have him at the end of round 1.
I think there is no reason to think that Terry could not develop into a future fantasy WR1 with refinement and technique added to his game. Right now, he excels in the deeper throws and has better long-speed compared to his short burst. I am excited, but for him to reach my lofty WR1 status, he needs to develop his routes.
