Little different though b/c TEs (and RBs especially) tend to catch the ball closer to the line of scrimmage and naturally have higher YAC. Vernon catches a lot of his passes down field though, too.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
Running backs are always going to be king of YAC because of the screen passes.
It looks like WRs and TEs are actually pretty comparable, though. That's just based on statistics, I'm with you on the reasoning.
The thing that impressed me was the size of the gap between Vernon and everybody else. The second best is DeSean Jackson at 7.7... and that says something... Vernon had 8.2 YAC.
I might have to look at that stat a little closer. Very interesting....
OMFG! I just realized we'll be running the WCO next season.
True on Vernon too. With a stable QB position Vernon will be the guy everyone talks about.
Of course the video didn't include all of Crabs drops at the beginning of the year, but I think he's a nice piece to the puzzle also.
