Mickey Plyler on Cain: "Sammy was bigger at this stage and probably caught the ball a little better but Cain is similar in that is a playmaker. Cain has a huge upside. He can make so many things happen with the ball in his hands. He is raw because he has mostly played quarterback but he really shows out when he does get a chance to play receiver in camps. This is what a five star looks like."

Reminds Plyler of: Sammy Watkins
