Strengths: butler has an atypical body type with arm, leg, and torso length that gives him a decisive advantage on jump balls. strong handed and dominant at the catch point. will be a challenge to stop at the high point. routinely makes outside his frame catches and shows the body control and ball skills to make in-air adjustments on the ball. he has ball isolation skills in the endzone to properly box out defenders. uses his length to leverage open passing windows. has solid off the line burst with good release work at the los and a good amount of jab steps and eye deception mixed in. he i s aware of how to separate even with his speed deficiencies. reads hip directions well, snaps off routes hard, and angles his breaks to exploit open hipped cbs and blind spots. uncovers with sudden lateral cuts and direct steps. he flashes route adjustment capabilities based off zone spacing and different coverage identifications. can have subtle setups in his routes and disguises lateral cuts with a quiet upper body. adjusts route depth based off indicators such as how far the cb is in bail/pedal and will plant and open rapidly towards the qb. can alter his speed to stop/slow down cb’s feet to open up clean breaks. uses an arm-over move to clear his frame and allow him to get some acceleration and stack/separate vertically. has consistent yac ability that comes from his agility and contact balance. gets his hands dirty as a blocker on the perimeter and in space.
weaknesses: butler does not possess high level separation speed to challenge man coverage vertically. he lacks the thickness in his frame to be physical with cb’s when uncovering. shows minimal sink ability into his breaks which slows down his cod speed and fluidness. has issues controlling overhead passes and pulling them back quickly to forbid a drop. points show up on tape where he doesn't step up and combat an undercutting defender.
