[quote]He can't shoot the ball worth a lick. Athletic guys in the league are a dime a dozen. And he's not a low post player. I hope I'm wrong but I just don't see it.

re: Mike Mayock's Prospect Ratings 4.0 - higgsBoson on 4/21/16 at 7:46 am
I don't want Treadwell or any offensive player besides maybe an OG if he's BPA. WRs rarely contribute early, and we just spent a ton of money on a receiving TE. And I especially don't want Treadwell. The number of people going cold on him so fast is pretty alarming. The defense and interior offensiv...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote] What part exactly do you disagree with?[/quote] That Robinson will necessarily be a better pass rusher. I'm not confident that Robinson's game is going to translate in any way to the league.

[quote]I'm going by what I've watched personally and read. Reed is stout in the run game and hardly ever gets moved. I think he's definitely better than Robinson in that regard. And I never said Robinson's upside was better than most, just that a lot consider his upside to be a little higher tha...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
