- Speed: Wheatley Jr. is very quick for a player with his build. That will help him with his route running and will give him another advantage during goal line situations.
- Good Size/Build: He is only a Junior in high school and he already is well over six-feet tall. Combine that with his weight, 235 pounds, he’ll adjust well to the run game and will be able to hold his own while still adding pounds of muscle on a college weight training program.
- Good Hands: Anytime a player has good hands, that helps your team. Wheatley Jr. has good hands and that is a great feature to have for a TE, obviously. Wheatley Jr. will be a good option for his quarterback on 3rd downs and will act as a nice security blanket if a play breaks down or if the QB needs to check down.
