re: After further evaluation of Arik Gilbert
I don’t know how you misevaluate Gilbert. Moves like a WR and then you look at his size and wonder how. He’s on a whole different plane of athlete.

Arik can play receiver, even at his size (and probably any other position he wants)


Arik has said he wants to be a WR.. I'd still rather him at the TE/WR flex role that is new because of all the great WR's we have and have coming in. Embarrassment of riches at the offensive skill positions. Just hope the guy getting them the ball is good to great.

The Tight Ends in our offense are essentially WR's (Stephen Sullivan) This is NOT a Blocking TE Offense, and if you are a TE that can play WR, that means the Linebacker has you IN MAN (too Slow) or if you are spread out, a SMALLER CB has you...

PICK YOUR POISON!!!!!

He's listed as 15 pounds heavier than Calvin Johnson.

That's almost unbelievable.

Well, like I mentioned, I really hadn't seen much video of him. I watched some highlights that were actually of his freshman season. The difference between his freshman season and his JR season is amazing. Just didn't look at enough video. I don't really like watching video of recruits until they commit to LSU. And I was very impressed with Kole Taylor. For his height that dude is quick and fast. After Gilbert committed I went and looked at his videos closer. And that's when I really took notice of his athletic ability.

re: After further evaluation of Arik Gilbert
I went to one of Gilbert’s games and came away really impressed with how he played when not getting the ball. Made some key blocks, including being lined up against Myles Murphy at times. He also ran hard on routes where you knew he was a decoy because the ball went to a receiver trailing 5-10 yards behind him.

He makes Kyle Pitts look really small by comparison though.

Pitts measured up at 6'5.5 235 in high school and they list him at 6'6, 239 now. Gilbert measures 6'5, 253 already.

No they were not. Both were used by the Saints in the same way. Shockley wasn't used a much because he was older when he got to the Saints, plus he had injury issues. Both were tall, lanky, athletic TE's. Just like Taylor. A younger version of Shockley looked a lot like Graham when he was with the Saints. Shock wasn't as athletic as Graham, but he and Graham are from that same mold of tall, lanky athletic TE's. Instead of the shorter, thick powerful TE's, like Gilbert. Gilbert is more in the mold of the traditional TE.

re: After further evaluation of Arik Gilbert
I went and watch him play last weekend. Saw 1 amazing catch. Several decent catches and runs. But also saw him fumble and cause an interception. Here are a couple of videos I took.

Missed Catch

Caused an inception

#58 (BJ Ojulari - DE) on Marietta High was killer. I have some video on him on defense too if anyone is interested.

How tall did you think Shockey was?

re: After further evaluation of Arik Gilbert
Chris, you were being negative. That end zone pass was a little high and behind him.

The interception was a bad pass too. Your video quality is good but your interpretations of them suck.

re: After further evaluation of Arik Gilbert
Dude, come on. The “missed catch” was high and behind him while he was wide open. The “caused” interception, while he at least had a very small chance at making a great catch, was also high. He’s 6’5. The fact that had to jump on both plays and still couldn’t get up to it means those balls were launched incredibly too high to be caught by anyone not 6’5 and, in both cases, not even by someone who is 6’5. Neither of those were his fault. QB should have hit him in the chest on both. You don’t need to make a WR jump on slant routes. But definitely bring that BJ video. Would love to see it.

re: After further evaluation of Arik Gilbert
Alright, let’s argue.

1. Shockley was a QB at UGA, his name was Shockey.

2. Graham lined up in the slot as a mismatch. Essentially a slower more physical WR and he couldn’t block a 3 year old from a candy bar

3. SHOCKEY as in Jeremy Shockey, was an in line TE with great hands. He was cut from the same mold as the Gonzales, Witten, Olsen’s of the world.

4. Shockey was 6’5 and more compact and Graham is 6’7 and they are the same exact weight.
