He made Eric Reid look silly back in their 2012 game. Just a question: Is there a reason this guy IS NOT worthy of a late 1st round pick?
- 6'2", 220
- 4.40 forty (tied for 3rd best among WRs)
- 11' broad jump (tied for best among all WRs)
- 39.5 vertical (tied for 3rd best among all WRs)
Career number comparison to Odell Beckham:
Beckham: 40 games, 143 catches, 2340 yards, 16.4 YPC, 12 TD catches (4 before this season)
Moncrief: 38 games, 156 catches, 2371 yards, 15.2 YPC, 20 TDs (14 before this season)
Yes, Beckham can play special teams and does a ton of great things with the ball in his hands, but at the end of the day Moncrief is a bigger, faster player and was even more productive in college (particularly early on). So it's less of a comparison and more for making the case that (IMO) Moncrief deserves to be in that conversation.
Putting it another way: If Baalke thought AJJ deserved to be drafted in the late first, he sure as EFF has to see Moncrief being worthy of it too. By comparison, Moncrief makes AJ Jenkins look like...well, AJ Jenkins (I couldn't think of a worse WR).
