facts ... we get upset that he didn't play more for us, but the talent is obvious ... he has all the traits of a top TE ... its all about situation, as it is in most cases ...I'm higher on Jordan than any of our TEs since Jimmy Graham. The injuries are the obvious concern, but his game translates.
The key to playing TE in the NFL is short-area quicks. You need to uncover fast and navigate traffic. Jordan ran a verified 4.21 shuttle in high school at 250 pounds. That's freakish. He grew up playing RB and kept that quickness, balance and instincts. He led all TEs in YAC for a reason.
He's tough, competitive, shows flashes as blocker (thick lower-body, good flexibility) and is a hands catcher. A good team will be able to use him all over the field.
what te is out there moss'in guys besides graham (in his heyday) and maybe waller ... brevin fits the type and as most say it comes down to speedHe’s good, but not great at the TE position. Contested catches he grades poorly, blocking is average, height is below norm, speed I’m not sure. Brevin does seem to run good routes. He is a hell of a competitor on the field though. And that does matter a lot. The injury thing is very concerning. 3 years in a row he failed to stay healthy through a season.
Again if Brevin runs sub 4.75....My man is gone by round 3 the latest. Will interview well, Miami te pedigree, YAC ability, likely special teams ability, willing blocker with s&c growth.
Jonnu Smith/Irv Smith comps for me.
It ain’t about the program anymore. We have cultural problems.He has been a good Cane but we will never be close to back with this stuff happening. I'll say it a million times all the schools that have success have kids that dont leave early. Its a bad move for the kid and its worse for the program.
And please stop with the they get money to stay line, either shine the light on it or start paying yourself. Sorry I rather get the death penalty trying to knock off Bama than continue to hear stupid ESPN commentators "Is the U back? or some sh1t like that. Tired of the U invented swag talk, hell Im tired of telling FSU and UF fan "Oh yea well we have 5" but we havent gotten sh1t in 20 years. Its time to play the game or snitch, I say we play the game and w.e. comes our way comes our way.
Yeah I don’t get the post you quoted. Two guys left early this year. One is going to be a first rounder and the other should be day two and has had injury issues so he needed to get paid.It’s his decision to make. Relax
Wouldn't say he's much better.LOL. Shane Hallam (whoever that is) is smoking crack. Pitts is much better than Jordan. Dude is a freak
It's a tough comparison because Brevin played more inline TE than Pitts did in his career. I see Pitts more like Larry Fitzgerald who occasionally got in a 3 point stance.Wouldn't say he's much better.
Pitts shined by being the number one option on a pass heavy team. He's obviously not athletic and has better receiving skills. He'll go high, deservedly so, because of his production, size, his athleticism.
I think Jordan is better after the catch, has better hands, and is better blocker.
Jordan will carve out a nice career because of his versatility at the position. Pitts will need to produce as a receiver to have longevity.
