I can't believe a 5'8" WR is going to be our go to guy. Can't we find a better group of WR's?.....
not everything, but at some point, it would be nice to have a 6'3"+ guy with great hands and speed, even if we have to trade up in the draft to get him.
Didnt have to trade up buddy, could have had Jefferies or Randle, both 6'2 + with great hands and speed....
2 other 2nd year WR's we passed on because we're so much smarter than everyone else......
"Second-year wide receiver Rueben Randle has posterized nearly the entire Giants starting secondary over the past two days. He's not just making a statement early in training camp, he's screaming from the mountaintop."
Second-year wide receiver Alshon Jeffery continued his strong start to camp by catching a pair of long touchdown passes from quarterback Jay Cutler to the delight of the estimated crowd of 9,000 fans. Jeffery's first touchdown reception came during a one-on-one drill when the former second-round pick managed to beat Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Tillman. The second deep completion came in 11-on-11 when Jeffery burned a couple defenders to haul in the pass in the back corner of the end zone. "Alshon has showed the ability to run all the different routes we have given him," Bears head coach Marc Trestman said. "He's a very quiet person. He's a very smart young man with a high football intelligence. He's a guy that learns very quickly. It's been three very good days for him and we just hope he'll continue to progress and stay consistent in his effort and his productivity each day in practice."
