Just saying Hernandez was 1 of the most unique NFL players to play the game in regards to how they used him and how good he was at each role.


I get what you're saying, but AH was a 5* in HS and is one of the biggest freak athletes in the league.

He needs to be a TE. He won't create separation from elite DBs at that weight imo

re: Tony Upchurch is a frickin stud


I compare Anthony Jennings QB style to Brees and get destroyed by people on here thinking that I mean he's as good as Brees.

They have similar size and skillsets. Great pocket presence, athletic, can run but choose to pass, good arm strength but nothing spectacular, very accurate, and intelligent.


So I feel you haha

I think he can play both. Small DB's couldn't cover him in the air on jump balls. Spread him out wide in the red zone and give him fades to the corner.

Upchurch is gonna be Dwayne Bowe, but without the two seasons of dropsies (until he got his vision corrected).

Looking forward to hearing how he looks at the upcoming camp, A lot of good things standout in his film. I predict he will be responsible for a ton of first down cheers by the LSU band in the future.

re: Tony Upchurch is a frickin stud


Hate to be cliche but I think u see upchurch get moved all over the formation similar to Aaron Hernandez. He will need to add weight but u could see him as FB blocking or running or catching. Flexing out as a WR or TE whatever u want to call him. I'm hearing cam likes to use his TE and RB in the passing game so having a player like upchurch as a FB option would be special.

The only problem is learning the playbook for so many different positions.

I don't want to make my final picks until the end of the class, but I agree with you on the offensive side of the ball. On defense, it has to be Battle...how in the world can a guy have an offer list that Battle has (Arkansas, Florida State, South Carolina, Ohio State, Wisconsin, USC, LSU, etc, etc, etc) and be rated a 3*. That's rich!
