I remember over the spring the writers here and the coaches were really talking this kid up. Like he was the most impressive receiver at camp. He was apparently hauling anything in that came his way. I imagine most completely dismissed it like I did as we drooled at the high star receivers on the roster. I'd like to see this kid now. Is he hurt? Haven't seen anything on the walkon.
Don't know but I posted in another thread this morning that NO stone will go unturned now....Coach D' is pissed and it's time for the WR's.....hell ANY WR to step up and catch the ball. Everyone knows there were higher rated WR's than Blair White ....but Blair outworked them and MADE PLAYS........that's what it comes down to. Mumphrey and Fowler KNOW the routes and put themselves in perfect position to catch the ball: and too often simply don't. Lippett: I just don't see a Big Ten receiver at all......I thought he should have stayed at CB and won't back down from that now.
Burbridge and Kings are pups: they were LOST yesterday and almost got Bell hurt; that's a fact. Arnett: dropped one ball and didn't get back in the game. I swear to god, if we can trust Caper to block the blitz I'm starting to think that we might split Bell out wide: no shit. (no truth to the rumor the kid will be driving the team bus the rest of the year though)
We heard a lot about Barksdale and Troup as well. I wouldn't mind seeing some of those guys get a shot, if nothing else, to hopefully light a fire under someone's ass.
Trust Caper to block? I think he does a pretty great job in protection...
drop in the spring game, if I remember right.

Thank god for Dion Sims and Le'veon Bell. Just based on health, the OL is going to take most of the season to gel. A WR needs to step up, or Mannie needs to mold another TE out of thin air who's ready to play.
As far as the WRs, some need to work on catching the ball, some need to work on blocking, some need to work on both. Unfortunately for guys like Arnett, they may need to just put on weight to be better blockers.
If Jakubik (or anyone else) didn't have an opportunity to earn PT yet, they will now. Idk where Madaris and Kerrick are developmentally, but even they'll have a shot. I don't care who steps up, I just want someone to put it together and be a complete receiver.
Obvious racist post, but we do need possession receivers, regardless of their color. Guys who can catch first, possibly not great athletes, but they are actually good at catching the ball. We have too many guys with tons of athletic ability but no hands.
Is Fred Smith still on the roster? Might be time to give him a shot...
Minus well give him the boot, then.
