We have other needs, but I'd still love to see him here. As long as Herm is here, we won't be winning anything, so we might as well have a good show. I say bring on Crabtree and Bowe and Gonzo and Thiggy and the Spread. Blaze of Glory.

Michael Crabtree isn't Calvin Johnson he doesn't have the freak speed....so then you wonder if he's Larry Fitzgerald well if you compare them in college he's not close to Fitz either...

I think Crabtree is a bit of a risky pick because he has alot of issues that surround him.

Issues like, doesn't have elite timed speed, the offense he comes from.

He's a very productive college player but his projection to the NFL is a bit cloudy.

That's what they said about Boldin.

Anquan Boldin just had a horrible combine that's all....he produced at FSU in a system that was alot closer to pro than Tech and for the most part he had no QB's.

In 1 game he was playing QB.

Crabtree seems a bit overrated to me. I think teams will be disappointed with his production if they are expecting somebody to stretch the field. He's a possession receiver a the next level, maybe a dominant slot guy.

Mecca
12-07-2008, 06:12 PM

He will probably time somewhere in the area of 4.5, he's not going to go sub 4.4 by any means.

That's what I mean when I say well what is he, Fitzgerald didn't have elite time speed but he's so rare with everything else that was overlooked. Boldin was awful at the combine and went in the 2nd round and proved people wrong...

But for every 1 of those guys there's 10 Mike Williams and Dwayne Jarretts who couldn't separate at the next level because they lack elite speed.

Don't get me wrong, Crabtree is an EXCELLENT college WR. He reminds me of another WR that had amazing #'s who was a disappointment when he got to the NFL.

An above average WR who has single coverage about every single snap is going to be successful in college, especially when he has a decent QB throwing him the ball.

If you are wondering who I am comparing him to, I will repeat it for the 10th time: Rashaun Woods.

He's probably a 1st round pick....it's not exactly a thrilling WR year, all the other guys are little fast returner types..

But why would a Chiefs fan want to use their first pick on him? That doesn't make much sense to me, if he was Calvin Johnson or Andre Johnson as a prospect then I'd understand.

And, he was a 4th rounder. I never expected him to be a starter, I think he can be an excellent slot WR. If you watch football, you know it usually takes 3 years for WRs.
