Strong tracks the ball particularly well in this example, getting his head turned around early and putting himself into position to make the play. Then he has to fight through some contact and shows off strong hands and excellent sideline awareness to complete the catch.
Jaelen struggles to sell his routes, particularly his double move. The cornerback doesn’t bite in this example, forcing Strong into a tough attempt at the catch. He fails to come up with this one.
This was one of my favorite plays. He locates the ball, goes up to get it and makes the catch while doing a 360 in the air.

Another example of Jaelen showing off his top-end speed. He gets into space and beats the corner, then blows by the safety.
