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.

umm first... the worst part of michael crabtree's game is his route running...its not bad at all, which speaks volumes for the other aspects of his talents, but it is still going to need some NFL work..

and you are comparing him to torry holts route running, one of the best route runners in football, still.....if you watch crabtree and holt, their game is nothing alike..

as a total package of talents, crabtree's closest comparison is to boldin, except he is faster..if crabtree can work on his route running, his GAME(getting the ball in open space and making people miss) i honestly will be very reminiscent of john taylor...a bigger john taylor..

basically imagine an anquan boldin, john taylor mixture, and that is how crabtree's college game looks like it will shape up to at the NFL level..

?

I think people see crabs as much faster then he really is.

I would say chris carter or wayne crebet.

he does not have the stride of carter but he has shown catch in traffic ability.



in his highlight reel he is getting ran down from behind in the open field by half the TCU and RICE defenses....

Can we stop with the Steve Smith talk?

post broke leg JT? He does look a little like an older JT after he broke his leg the first time....


pre-broke leg JT was one of the Faster men in the NFL ,and the Fastest man on the 49ers....

Crabtree is not nearly on par with Taylors ability to walk away and make separation at the NFL level let alone at the College Level were Taylor was a One cut and walk away player.

Not to sound like a jerk or anything but since he hasnt even taken a preseason snap in his life How can one compair him to a TO or a S Smith? Who have played and are perrenial All Pros...Let the guy play before he gets compaired to anyone. I know its a dif position but I remember a QB named R Leaf was supposed to be this Great QB What did he do in the NFL though...

Crabtree never played vs TCU, and he did just fine vs Rice, the only plays he's ever been caught from behind are screens, or after he breaks a tackle.

You seem to exaggerate his speed, except downward. Much of that video is him playing on a bum leg.

He held out until October to get #7 pick money for being the #10 pick. That's unprecidented in modern times. He missed 8 out of 8 preseason games. Who needs preseason or practice? Not DIVA's. He pouts when Alex is in and doesn't even try hard. He "plays when he wants to play." You can tell when he tries hard and when he just tips the ball into the air for interceptions. He gives up on lots of routes. Like Moss.

He's nothing like Moss. You're just being you and trying to embellish the truth about everything to get a rise out of people so you can in here all day. How you have the energy and desire to argue about everything you do in NT all day, every day, is beyond me. Seems like somebody that thinks they're as smart as you think you are would find something better to do with their time.
Idc if he turn out like Moss, Moss is a beast Im tired of p***y nice guys WRs
