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.
