he really hasn't displayed his YAC ability......maybe the speed in the NFL doesn't translate to his YAC success in college...
what do you guys think?
He is not in full football shape yet. He practice and worked out with a trainer and IMO it's affecting that part of his game. As the season goes on he will get stronger and stronger and I am sure the YAC will increase a lot specially if we run more spread offense.
He is just going to get better and better! It's just awsome to think about that.
That and it's the routes he's running too. They all have been comebacks, curls, etc. He's not really getting any passes thrown to him while he's in stride. I'm guessing the logic is we're waiting until he fully acclimates to the game, which I can understand.
Still, I'm amazed that he's able to produce like he is already. Remarkable for a rookie who's just starting to play.
