2021 Spring Notes - Wide Receivers & Tight Ends


Recommended Posts

I'm drinking the Kool-Aid. I would like to see bets line up at tight end position just a package to throw the defense off and plus I think he has enough speed and athleticism to beat linebackers. 

 

Back when we had Wandale, I wanted Frost to run a package with four wide tight ends and then put wanDale on the line in the tight end position. So you have height and size difference on the outside and then a speed difference in the Middle with Robinson. I think it would be a big mismatch for the defense. Plus the quarterback could run with the tight ends blocking.

Sounds like Manning has been doing everything this off-season.  Definitely a good sign.   And Toure has looked the part ... at least as much as you can before any actual practices happen.

Thanks for posting that.  I had seen it earlier but hadn't gotten it here yet.   People can be tired of blaming Riley all they want.  The fact is the offensive guys he recruited have almost

Until Wanda is face to face and covered by a 6'6" 300lb DE on the LOS.

Vertical threats in the WR corps make the entire offense look better, including the o-line, RB's and QB.  It's a matter of creating more space vertically, which takes defenders further away from the LOS, and creates more space horizontally.

 

^ This! Get some legit deep threats at WR, and you fix about 3/4 of the problems with this offense, and 1/2 the problems with the team as a whole. Waaay too many people wanna blame Martinez (and Verduzco by extension), and don't really seem to grasp just how dogs#!t godawful a lot of the players surrounding him have been.

Other than from watching yesterday’s highlights, I haven’t seen or heard much about Demaryian Houston #10.  Dude’s got some sprinters legs.   
 

Also, Jablonski #47 out of Lincoln may prove to be a “steal “ for the class as I believe he’s a walk-on.  Apparently a HS QB who’s learning the WR position, but looks to have the physical tools.  

If we can stay healthy, this WR group could be our best in years.

Going to be nice to see teams having to keep a deep safety over our X receiver instead of completely ignoring Kade Warner and putting another guy in the box.
