    Plus, Jayson wasn't a very good receiver. Jerick is probably better at that than Jayson was.
    Only thing that kept Foster out of the NFL was his hands.

    Like I said, Jerick has better skills as a receiver than Jayson had.

    Size and hands were a lethal combo. If Foster had Wes Welker hands, he would have been . . . well, a more explosive Wes Welker.

    If he'd had Jerick McKinnon's size, he would've been LaDanian Tomlinson.

    Was a pretty sweet play too. These are the constraint plays we've been missing.

    Base on? I seem to remember McKinnon displaying some stone hands in his career. I believe Jaybo would have had 2 completions against Bama if not for a McKinnon drop. But just like Foster I don't blame him. Tough to be good at something you don't practice.

    The biggest thing with McKinnon is how quickly he can learn. Let's be honest, outside of putting on muscle, nothing he has done in the past 4 years has made him NFL ready. He's going to be forced to learn to do a lot of things in a couple months that the players he will be competing against for a roster spot have been doing for years.

    I base this on McKinnon being the primary target in two-minute drill situations as a sophomore. I don't think they'd have looked his way first otherwise, not with Bryant, Wilcox, Showers, Williford, Barker, Sumner, and Walker on the roster.

    I do remember the drops, but I also remember the great catch against UTC (with a broken hand, no less) on which he landed flat on his back.

    But you're right; he had some key drops, too. I'm not making the claim based on anything that Jerick's done as much as on what I saw out of Foster playing the better part of two seasons as a WR. Jayson wasn't strong enough to get physical with defenders, he had fairly bad hands, and his route running was questionable. I would assume that Jerick is better in all three respects. But you know what they say about assumptions.

    Honestly, I'm really surprised Jerick didn't go to a CUSA school to play slot receiver in a pass-heavy offense. Until he got so big, I thought that was his natural position (considering his athletic tools).

    I just don't see it. Florida is better than any team we've played this year by far. We've won 1 game on the road this year, and have got beaten by two scores in every other road game. I can see the first half being close, but Florida should take this one by a few scores

    That's true, and that's why he'll need to run a fast 40 (which I'm not sure he'll do). That said, he has done his share of blocking, route running, etc. He's been exposed to--if not mastered--a lot of techniques that he wouldn't have worked on if he'd played nothing but QB. He won't be starting from scratch.

    That's why I'm hopeful that he can run well at pro day and camp, catch on, and focus on one thing . . . maybe becoming a third-down back? Although I would think pass protection would be his biggest challenge and most unfamiliar skill.

    I'm in, what the hell. We got to play the game, we might as well win it.
