He doesn't get close to playing at his timed speed and he seems to struggle with his focus a lot. I was not impressed by him when I watched a bt of Miami recently. This guy will get severely overdrafted!
Playing speed is also based on your grasp of the system you are playing. If you know the routes well, you do not to think about play you can just run it.
Tommy Streeter ran fast, but he apparently looks slower on the field. He has basically only played for two years. The U changed their offense this season--so each year he was learning a different system.
Michael Irving brought this up. Irving felt that once Streeter was familiar with an offensive system and his role in that system, his playing speed would reflect his physical capacity.
His intangibles are high. He works hard and wants to learn. He is still a young kid. He has the work ethic required to learn the game.
If the object is to draft for next year, Streeter might not be
the best pick.
But if the object is to draft for the next four to six years, Streeter might just be right guy to draft.
Most receivers take time to develop. Free agency might be the best way to find a WR for next year.
