Not sure where you get that from. He sounds exactly like most NFL athletes.

He will occasionally drop a ball, but its because he runs before catching and it certainly isn't a lot. I've watched every game this kid has played in, except for the pay-per-view body-bag games, and his hands remind me a lot of Marques Colston.

Drop and easy one then catch one 6 feet behind him or 4 feet over his head

He's gonna be a stud. Atlanta doesn't deserve this kid.

He does drop quite a few, but is certainly an exceptional player and will make our lives on defense even harder.

That being said, they gave up a ton for him and ignored some pretty glaring needs on defense. They got absolutely shredded by GB in the playoffs.

Comparing Atlanta's draft and ours, I'd say that we did the right thing and they did the wrong thing. But I guess time will tell on that.

Where are those folks now?

Kyle Turley? He's retired and thinks he's a musician now.

I don't know if he sounds like most. The guy sounds fairly dumb. Matter of fact he kinda sounds like someone stuck large amounts of cotton balls in each side of his mouth or like he had been to the dentist right before talking that day.
That said, he can play and he will help them, probably. I don't think he will have an immediate impact only because very few wideouts do. He could though
