Originally posted by IdahoNiner:Just admit you know nothing about him other than his size. Its ok i wont hold it against you. I have followed him his entire career. He has less drops than anyone on the team, has a higher YAC than anyone on the team, and has QB's no where near Carr's level throwing him the football. Maybe his numbers are suffering because he is being used in the slot in the short passing game more than he should have been? Look what happened against Texas Tech when Oklahoma decided to use him out wide more. 6 receptions, 153 yards, 2 TD's and a 25.5 average. Oklahoma has had a less than stable offense this season. Last season in 8 games played (ineligible early due to transfer) he had 62 receptions for 829 yards with Landry Jones throwing him the ball. He has also never missed a game due to injury.
In fact, look what this article states about him.
Also here is an article about Oklahoma's struggles on offense this season.
This guy doesnt look slow to me.
And what do you know? Look what happens when they use him as a deep threat on the edge....
The comparisons to KW are seriously laughable. I can understand the size criticisms, i really can, but other than that, any knocks i hear on him have no basis in reality.
Know nothing about him? I live in TX and am forced to see nothing but Big 12 games. I've seen enough of Saunders to know I'd pass on him. Big 12 defenses are a joke, and WAC defenses are even worse (and I'm saying WAC because Fresno was still in the WAC during Saunders years). Let's look at what he's done verse non-cupcake D's. ND-7 for 46 at 6.6, Texas aka DBU 3 for 18 at 6, TCUs always solid Defense 5 for 30 for 6. It's laughable when you say they finally used him correctly on the outside when there's no way he's playing there in the pros. And comparing him to Kyle Williams is incorrect, my apologies, cause Williams has way more speed than Saunders. I like you Idaho, but you seem to get overly offended when people don't agree with your assessment of players you like. You were the same guy who said Elvis Akpla would be the steal of the draft and be the next Victor Cruz. I understand rooting for someone, but getting offensive because someone doesn't like the same prospect you do is pointless. We are entitled to our own opinions, and just cause we don't like kid doesn't mean "we've never seen him play". Just means we don't like what we saw.
