None of that matters if you can't catch the ball, but he can.
Good hands, tenacious, I like that.
Not afraid to catch in zone traffic with players converging.
I'd like to see some other guys step it up so that most get single coverage.
Brees will light teams up in those situations.
It's sounding like he's not the only one of these with us this year. We've got a line of these receivers ready to step it up.

other than that the rest was so so and nothing spectacular. So he was a tape and private workout player.

BUT he has lived up to his draft billing

Strengths
Controlled mover with nice balance. Gets in and out of breaks cleanly. Runs crisp routes -- shows some savvy and subtle physicality to work himself open. Tracks and adjusts very well. Has soft, sure hands and catches naturally. Good concentration to make contested catches. Confident and competitive. Excellent two-year production.

Desire is hard to measure
He wasn't drafted, how can he live up to his draft billing? I'm not being a smart ass, just wondering what you mean by that.
