DGB is not slow.
One thing that I always look for in a big guy is their ability to create separation.
Stephan Hill didn't have that, John Baldwin didn't have that, Tommy Streeter, and many other big WR all share this problem. Not to mention that the difference between your average college CB and average NFL CB is a huge difference, probably one of the biggest jumps per position which is why it makes scouting these WR so hard.
While I do think that DGB is on another playing field compared to these guys (athletically) I think he is going to struggle getting open. All of these 1 handed grabs I am seeing so far are great, but it seems like every time the ball is thrown his way he is still fighting somebody off. That may look good now, but its not going to work for him against a professional defense.
Who knows, I may be posting this a bit prematurely as I have only watched 4-5 games of his so far. (I'm on youtube/draft breakdown right now).
But for me I'm not going to say he is the next Calvin or AJ or Julio, those guys get open. I have yet to see that from DGB.
The only way he creates any separation so far that I have seen is with his straight line speed, not going to work in the NFL.
Last note, for how big he is, he shouldn't be this bad of a blocker. Wow that is going to need work
