It just goes to show you that being a good receiver isn't so much about speed as it is about technique.
The thing about him is he isn't that fast but he is sneaky. He finds holes other guys just don't see.
He also catches with his hands. I was yelling at the TV when Kyle Williams had his man beat. Kap threw it short but that's a catch if KW catches it with his hands rather than trying to basket catch it. Boldin simply rips it away from defenders.
