Claypool. I think he was also called the steal of the draft.
Agree, lets see how things are after real combat in preseason games. No one is anything in my opinion until after it starts to count. Looks good but there are many factors, including durability, that comes into play before anointing anyone as anything at this point. We really need for him to continue to do what he's doing that is for sure.
They managed to win 9 games and make the playoffs, with that OL which was probably worse in 2021, Moore should be better in year two and Cole should be an upgrade over Green at center.
He did produce as a rookie, unfortunately he regressed in year two.
JuJu looking like mahomes new #1 in KC.
I think it was actually having a lot of choices. .they gave AB an early extension in 2012. Bad outcome at the end..but great deal at the time.
For what 8 yards per catch
Talk about a freaking catch radius, and I'm not just talking about that Video, but the collection of them so far.
James Washington, Limas Sweed….
I don’t know. Seems they miss just as much if not more than they hit?
height, speed, body control and concentration, (not to mention glue hands)
he's got the makings
Does not shock me personally. Tyreek Hill was essentially Andy Reid's version of DeSean Jackson but supercharged. Gave Andy a greater form of flexibility that he did not have. Marquez Valdes Scantling is supposed to recoup some of that deep speed but that is not the whole focal point of this new offense here.
If I had to take a guess, Andy is likely going back to a more traditional yet more robust form of the West Coast Offense. JuJu is a perfect fit for it for his style of play lines up well with it the same. What major tweaks the Chiefs have is going to be interesting for certain.
In addition, keep an eye out for Sky Moore as well. He should have gone in Round One. Kansas City got him as a steal in the second.
His college tape is really good. If you set aside height/weight measurements, he looks on film like a 1st round talent. I too would not be surprised if he becomes a big part of the offense.
I haven't seen him in person yet, but he reminds me of Emanuel Sanders, we could be so lucky!
His catch radius will help our underwhelming/inexperienced QBs.
I haven’t seen him in person either, but his tape says “DeSean Jackson” more than Sanders to me.
I hope to be down at training camp next week to see him in person. First time I saw Sanders at training camp I was concerned with his measurables
after I left I knew he was going to be productive member of Steelers. I am hoping this holds true for this young man.
Time will tell.
They find productive guys without using first round picks on them, even the national media gives them credit for finding good receivers.
I think that's part of the reason the Steelers weren't all that interested in bringing him back, the last two seasons JuJu averaged only about 8-9 yards per catch.
Ben could only throw that far
No they wanted him back on a multi-year team friendly deal. JuJu wanted either a bigger payday or a shorter incentive laden deal like he received with KC.
Reasonable after an injury year and wanting to push his value back up. It's all business in the end. I think the WR coach caused those guys to regress last year. Too many of them couldn't move positions for some reason. That's why they had Cody White out there taking so many snaps. No way he's better than sliding Claypool or Washington over to fill in for JuJu. (Physically) Something happened to the development.
My point is if they really wanted to sign him, they would've gotten a deal done, I agree the WR coach didn't do a good job last season.
