He's nothing like Wes Welker as Welker is gay and Crabtree is no homo.

CRIS CARTER with a little Andre Johnson and Larry Fitygerald sprinkled in

Good call. I have been comparing him to Cris Carter since March.

I know we have heard people say he is like a cross between T.O. and Steve Smith, but I see flashes of Wes Welker too! Maybe also Brandon Marshall... or Andre Johnson!


After watching this video, who Crabtree reminds me of...a little bigger receiver that can cut pretty fast like:

Michael Irvin, Plaxico Burress, Keyshawn Johnson, TO, Derrick Mason. Of all them guys, he reminds me most of Michael Irvin, but a bit more agile. He looks to have very good hands, and decent after the catch. We're going to be giving secondaries something to think about with Josh Morgan, Crabs, a new and improved Vernon and a running attack with less holes in the o-line.
Michael Irvin is a good call to. He is about the same height and size that Irvin was and both have long arms. His hand eye coordination and his knack for making the tough catch in traffic or on the sideline is the reason why I would compare him to Cris Carter.

Crabtree also reminds me of Brandon Marshall and Andre Johnson a bit as well. Hopefully he will be the next Michael Crabtree and top WRs coming into the league will be compared to him.
I'll get back to you on this. When I see him play in the NFL.
Roy Williams.
who said torry holt? and roy williams?!

i dont think many of you understand how strong the guy is, a brandon marshall or quicker anquan boldin makes the most sense...

He's closer to Boldin, Holt than to Marshall. He's Boldin's size (6'1'" 215 vs 6'0 217 boldin) but his skills, route running, hands are closer to Holts.
I'll tell you one thing. I watched two of those videos, and I don't think he caught ONE ball with his body. EVERY catch with his hands. AWESOME!!
Right now he's a bust!
