Bio from draftace.com
Strengths: Tremendous all around athlete. Good field vision; finds the soft spot in zone coverage. Can make things happen after the catch. Good speed.
Weaknesses: Undersized. Doesn't always run crisp routes. Hasn't faced top competition.
Comments: Stanley was a very productive receiver at his level of competition. He is a quick, shifty receiver with some upside as slot receiver at the next level. He projects as a late round selection.
