Golden Tate sees a great deal of potential in fellow Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay.

Golladay reeled in just 28 receptions for 477 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games during his rookie season in 2017.

Tate, however, believes that’s just the tip of the iceberg for the 6-foot-4, 218-pound Golladay.

“I saw freakish catches, man,” Tate said, via MLive.com. “Some real freakin’ freakish catches. Kenny’s still a young guy trying to figure it out, but he’s moving at a great pace. If he can just keep the mentality he has coming in, he studies, and just tries to get better every day, I’m telling you, this guy can be dominant. He’s a WR1 kind of guy.”

Golladay made quite a splash in his NFL debut last season. He caught two touchdown passes, including the go-ahead score with 9:27 remaining, in the Lions’ 35-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 10 at Ford Field.

The 24-year-old Golladay resides behind Tate and Marvin Jones on the Lions’ wide receiver depth chart.
