Scout Eval: Neal is a freakish athlete who will get touches all over the field and always puts up sick numbers statistically. He has great speed and can hit top speed instantly. he has great hips and change of direction which allows him to run past or around defenders. He has the size and speed to be a split end, slot receiver or flanker on the next level.
