Elijah Caldwell's hands and balance are two areas of his game jumping off the screen. He catches the ball in traffic, highlighted by one-handed catches, fights off defenders, comes down with the ball, breaks tackles and turns up field, making him a threat in all three levels in the passing game. He's a viable option in the redzone with his ability to attack the ball in the air, shielding off the defender and high points the ball. 

Last season, Caldwell hauled in 77 receptions, for 1,247 and 15 touchdowns.
