Finally, I want to address the knock on him about his route running. “He’s raw.” “He runs only one route.” These comments really get to me. Let’s remind ourselves a bit by looking at some video again:
I look at the video, and I see many different routes being run. I see bubble screens, some comback routes, a backshoulder fade. Yes there are plenty of down the field throws, but there are other routes run as well.
And by the way, if he is “raw”, isn’t that what coach Lal is for? And anyway, who can deny 4.36 speed, and the hands that I just saw in that video. Am I wrong?
Last but not least, let’s say it’s all true, that he doesn’t run good routes. Isn’t there a guy that has made a borderline hall of fame career out of running one route? Let me think………………….
I’m just saying………..
There is no reason to knock this pick. The guy can play, and he is the best fit for the Jets at this time.
