Andrei Iosivas has been frequently compared to Christian Watson, but the one thing scouts held against Watson was his ball skills, a trait Iosivas has no trouble with. At Princeton, Iosivas had a small route tree in college which isn’t super uncommon, however, it makes his route running grade a little limited. Iosivas doesn’t just have great high-pointing ability on the ball, he has really good hands. He is very strong, and he uses his strength to fight through traffic in the air and get around bodies. He is not a good blocker by any means, but as a wide-out, I don’t think it is that big of a concern. His release package isn’t super complex but he is smooth off the line and he beats press coverage. However, these are only Ivy League presses, so he may take a little time to adjust. He has legit track speed and can burn just about anyone; his change of pace is really impressive. His run-after-catch ability is definitely aided by his speed but he absolutely can make people miss.
