Best hands ever at wide reciever for Clemson?


Posted: Apr 11, 2013 5:37 PM
 

Who had the best hands over the course of their career, Jerry Butler, Perry Tuttle, Nuk, Sammy?

Who would you say had the best hands at wide receiver for Clemson?

IMO Butler- no glove era

Nuk- glove era

"Hands" down...Dwayne Allen***

Dwayne had the "clutchest" hands I've ever seen at Clemson

Seems like every time we needed a crucial catch at a crucial moment in the game he'd come up huge.

I'd say the same for Tyler Grisham...very clutch catcher...***

You can't mention clutch without Jaron "Third Down" Brown in my opinion. In the last two seasons he had dozens of big catches on 3 and 7 or longer. He won't ever be considered one of Clemson's best but he was sure handed, for sure.

Sammy hands down. When he is on its a wrap. The acceleration of Ford the hands of Perry and the "get away from cops speed" of Spiller.


Nuk

Better hands than Sammy and I really don't think it's close. Sammy has very good hands, Nuk's are about as good as it gets.

The year before last, the only ball Sammy dropped all year was in the uSC game

Oh so that's why they call him "Sammy Dropkins?" That makes sense, because Alshon Jeffrey and Sidney Rice didn't drop a single pass in their 4 years at USC....

2019 student level member

Agreed. Sammy may break records, but he has yet to show

he has better hands than Nuk. Nuk leads all-time IMO, with Dwayne Allen close behind.

What would they do with Patrick Sap throwing 300 mph darts at em in Ken Hatfield's hambone offense?

Been watchin Clemson fb 40 yrs no question it is NUKE***

I've been watching longer than that, and I agree.


Posted: Apr 11, 2013 6:55 PM
 

Sammy is really close. Jerry Butler is right there as well. Hard to judge guys from years ago who played without gloves though.

The percent drops of "catchable balls" would be a fair measure...

This goes back. But before the great 49ers catch against Cowboys, Dwight Clark caught some nice ones.

one's favorite reciever


Tyler Gresham

I remember him dropping one ball in his time at Clemson, and it was bc he was left out to dry against VTech and was helped off the field


If he'd had a QB to throw to him like Sammy&Nuk,


Posted: Apr 11, 2013 6:41 PM
 

I think Derrick Hamilton would've proven himself to be a better receiver than he showed, and he was danged impressive at times.

One of the truest things Tommy Bowden ever said was that #23 needed another year of seasoning before going pro.....but then, I wasn't privy to Derrick's family's financial situation either.

I remember Youngblood catching everything close to him

Butler and Tuttle were a little before my time, but from what I've seen, Nuk and Kevin Youngblood caught everything in their vicinity. I would trust throwing a newborn child to them from 30 yards.

bouncing it off his should before he could turn. Of course, Simmons had to
show off his are when an easy pass would have gone for a completion.

Dwight Clark.

Dwight Clark


His nickname with the Redskins was 50/50, droped the ones

The Noodle could get open and out run folks and he had some big games, but he had head scratcher drops (seemed like at least 1 a game).


Rarely caught it with his hands. Used his body***

Aaron Kelly caught alot of balls with no breakaway speed

This guy agrees ...

are right this year, but Nuk outdid him by a big margin last year! Go Tigers - would like to see Sammy beat Nuk's records from last year, then you could make your statement!

Dwight Clark


I really liked chansi stuckey


Posted: Apr 11, 2013 10:02 PM
 

No he wasnt as good as some of the players you mentioned but he was always a player we could rely on when we needed plays the most. He wasnt the fastest runners but definitly one of the most shifty runners with incredible balance. Funny thing is he actually was recruited as a QB and if im not mistaken he played a couple of series at QB against usuc during the 63-17 blowout


If you're including TE's, then it's...

Michael Palmer. He caught everything he got a finger on, including one where he was knocked unconscious by a helmet-to-helmet hit.

I would have to say Nuk but Jerry Butler was superb to back in the day. Considering the different style of play we have now it's hard to compare the guys from yesteryear to today. Kelly was solid also but that dropped ball against BC for the ACC Atlantic crown hurt even though it shouldn't. I think Sammy could have hands like Nuk but we will see this year. I sure hope he does.


I second the Rod Gardner mentions.***
