Mickens lacks size for the outside receiver position, but he is ideal for the slot and return game. He has excellent field vision and good quickness. He has above average hands and knows how to find the open spots in a defensive zone. He has a good sense for setting up his blocks in the return game, and despite blazing top end speed, is still capable of making the big play. - Scott Kennedy, National Recruiting Analyst
