Height: 6-3. Weight: 225. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.57. 
Projected Round (2019): 2-3. 

“ Arcega-Whiteside is a big receiver who has speed issues, but he also has mismatch size and is very adept at winning 50-50 passes. The senior totaled 63 catches for 1,059 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2018. As a junior, he recorded 48 receptions for 781 yards and nine touchdowns. One team source said they felt that Arcega-Whiteside was a poor-man's Mike Evans.”

If J.J. is still available in the 3rd round I would consider him depending upon who, or what the 49ers have already picked up prior to the time. He is pretty effective in the red zone and uses his size well against defenders. Watching J.J. you get the feeling that he is only a slight level above average and NFL defense would make him invisible. He is however that type of player that is fundamentally sound, minus any wow factor that could end up being a shocking success in the NFL.
