look what this idiot says about Sammy.....


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 2:45 PM
 

was just reading some draft reviews on cbssports.com. Their reveiws are done by NFLDraftScout.com. Anyway , looked at Sammy's and it's pretty good until I got to the part about his 'WEAKNESSES'....


WEAKNESSES: Only average height with a leaner than ideal build, lacking elite muscle definition or strength. Lacks elite speed and more of a glider. Not overly physical and won't break many tackles.


Hands are steady, but he'll have his share of focus drops, especially when he hears footsteps - a few botched returns on his resume. Room to improve his reliability on 50/50 passes. Minor durability concerns. Character needs investigated - arrested in May 2012 on drug-related charges.


what a MORON.....

Then we can expect no dropoff in the polls over losing him?

It almost feels like half of what you hear from draft analysts is BS. Sammy not fast and physical, that is laughable. Ask Ryan Shazier if Sammy is physical. He drove him like five yards backwards for a first down in the Orange Bowl.

Sammy's height is really his only legitimate knock...

The other stuff is purely just for the sake of coming up with weaknesses.

Ask Steve Smith if Sammy's height will effect how dominate he can be.


Basically Sammy could be better if he was 6'5", 235, 4.2/40


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 3:55 PM
 

could jump like a deer and had laser beam ball tracking. These idiots from CBS need to get a life, Sammy's worst day still puts him in the first round of the draft.


Ask the UGA if Sammy is physical.


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 3:00 PM
 

I don't remember who it was, but Sammy lowered his shoulder and trucked his butt on a long td catch and run.


That was UGA's best CB actually


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 3:12 PM
 

You know the one that all the dawg fans came on here barking about being able to shut down Sammy? Yeah how'd that work out for them. I remember that guy even jawing at Sammy at the end of one play were Sammy made a great catch on him. Sammy turned and probabaly said something along the lines of: "You do know that was a first down catch just now right? Keep up son"

I think Sammy will have one of the fastest get up and go's in the NFL. I think his 40 will be real good in the combine, although not 4.2x good. I do think Sammy's top end speed isn't the top 10 in the nfl tho.

For his speed, he doesn't have the moves most at his speed do, but his hands will be one of the best in the nfl. I'm betting 99% of all evaluaters would disagree with this dude severely.

Re: Also, remember what he did in the Orange Bowl.

To Ryan Shazier, All BIG and tOSUs leading tackler. Sammy didn't just run away from the Buckeyes, he ran over them, too. To say that Sammy is not physical is a ridiculously dumb statement...

Good, hope he falls all the way to 16 so the Ravens

I agree that Watkins lacks height & size. (at the moment)

However, speed & physicality shouldn't be an issue IMO.


Yes, I think the leader YAC guy in the country


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 3:07 PM
 

lacks elite speed...

2019 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

And doesn't break tackles I guess. How stupid can you be?


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 3:14 PM
 

It's pretty much impossible to be the nation's leader in YAC if you get taken down easily by arm tackles.


Rick Sanford write the review ??

Lol, he must have missed Sammy's first TD of the year when he ran over the Georgia DB and headed to the endzone, his YAC's are phenomenal!!!!

I'm gonna try and give him the benefit of the doubt here

We all love Sammy, and he's gonna do great at the next level. I also think these sort of player reviews done by folks who watch film often have to have a list of negatives where the author picks a few things and plays them up

Only average height with a leaner than ideal build, lacking elite muscle definition or strength.

Sammy is a great WR, but this is probably the truest of the criticisms. He's very very good, but he isn't as tall as the NFL "prototypical" WR numbers that scouts often (shortsightedly) look at. Some guys play bigger and stronger than their size. He's one of em

Lacks elite speed and more of a glider.

In terms of top speed, Sammy isn't the absolute fastest, but what he misses is that Sammy may have the fastest "0 to 60" acceleration I've seen in quite a while. I think that stat is missing from the discussion

Not overly physical and won't break many tackles.

He's wrong, but I'm guessing he's wrong primarily because he's watching the smart Sammy who often didn't take needless hits.

Hands are steady, but he'll have his share of focus drops, especially when he hears footsteps

Every WR at the next level has those. Heck, Nuk who had the best hands I've seen at Clemson had em in the NFL.

a few botched returns on his resume.

This is true, as I don't think he is going to be the go to returner at the next level. I don't think that's his top skill, and nor should he be judged as if it is

Room to improve his reliability on 50/50 passes.

Wrong. He out-jumps and out-fights most anybody for the ball

Minor durability concerns.

Very minor. Had an injury during one stretch of his career here, and still had very solid numbers that season.

Character needs investigated - arrested in May 2012 on drug-related charges.

We love Sammy and have seen that the incident did not define his character but was rather an aberration. It'll get investigated and promptly ignored.

I guess it's not the end of the work for Sammy to be average


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 4:36 PM
 

in something finally- Height and Weight.


Before we tar and feather the guy


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 4:01 PM
 

Lets also note he has him going fifth in the draft.

You had me until "lacks elite speed"


Posted: Jan 27, 2014 4:29 PM
 

Sammy, if nothing else, offers two things:

Hands- he just rips the ball out of the air. This has been well-documented.

Speed - the guy just has another gear or two. Ask OSU or many other teams he burned.

Wow.

Right? Like the one about the surfer who bit the great white shark to death. Huge chunk bit right off the fin, while onlookers along the shore heard him yelling think to the shark like "come at me brah!!"


I think he has the wrong Sammy***
