How does Kenny Stills Catch Deep Balls so Effectively?


A couple of articles on him; sorry if the first one has been posted before... It's a couple weeks old.

leads the NFL in yards per catch (22.6) among receivers with 10 or more receptions.


Even when contested or "covered" he seems to come up with the deep ball (see: NE Game this year). The one Brees threw in the NE game and the one against Dallas Sunday probably should have been picked off or at least deflected... How the hell is this dude coming up with these passes?! All for a 5th rd 144 ovrll pick.
I'm happy with his production thus far.

Unlike Toon, he wants to make Brees happy so he will continue to throw his way.

I really like Stills in college, he was typically their big play guy. I thought he would be pretty good in the NFL and man, is he stepping up. I mean this kid could really lock up the #2 WR spot possibly as soon as even next year.

He should have been called for OPI Sunday night.

That's what we need. A WR who can create his own sneaky Roddy White "separation."

No. I am not even suggesting that he is on that level. I just thought his "separation" was very White-like.

He's not saying Stills is as good as White.

He's saying that Stills is physical like White in that he creates separation by basically covertly committing OPI on occasion.

Hard to deny that but sooner than later may be his downfall if he doesn't get his act together. If you are targeted 1 or 2 tries and you are not making the most of those few throws, chances are very possible for release.

We're not gonna release a 4th round pick any time soon.

Maybe not, but don't tell that to 4th round picks Craver (02), Pittman (07), Holland (03), or Lyman (05) who were all released or traded early.

He didn't push off. The defender ran by him, he just put his hands on him to feel where he was. White will straight-up push someone. HUGE difference.

Stills is a much better WR than White, as his hands have proven to be MUCH better.

Hope so. White was really mediocre until a the second half of his career, imo.

He is freaking super reliable and adjust so well to the deep ball.

I just hope we can keep colston, moore and stills on the field togethter. The offense was clicking with everybody healthyISH (graham)

Agreed. When I saw we got him in the fifth I was like "WTF, are you serious?!?!"

I thought he'd be a player for us but I didn't think he make such an impact this quickly.

Toon has been underwhelming but I still have to believe he will be a solid wr

Vacarro
Jenkins
Stills

Three guys already making their mark in this team. That's a damn good draft IMO. If Armstead is lt of the future this may be the best I'm Payton's tenure considering there were what, 5 picks?

In 2WR sets, he and Colston were on the field more often than not.
