Criner did little in the Senior Bowl 'til they put Foles in the game...the guy who impressed me more was Ariz St's Gerrell Robinson. While Criner looked like more of a possession receiver, Robinson showed big play abilities.
What game were you watching? Robinson caught 2 passes and Criner caught exactly half of his passes from Foles(including his TD). Criner showed the redzone presence that we need and the body control that can be the difference going up for jump balls in the end zone.
Criner's entire effort from practice week to the game itself put his stock squarely in round 2 conversation, maybe a slip into the 3rd if the board goes a certain way.
Robinson caught one pass on a busted play and was able to get open, the second pass was a short crossing route that was the result of good blocking as much as his own skill.
I honestly like Robinson more then Criner but I guess I'm taking issue with the idea that Criner didn't see show a lot of good film.
