Default Jump Ball threat

Most of our WR's are under 6ft, are we lacking a jump ball threat in the red zone?

What are the benefits of having a bunch of small receivers opposed to a guy like Alshon?

In the redzone, we can do those rollouts that we did with Sanders so often last year. Those work extremely well with smaller, quicker WR's. We also have 3 tight ends who are all 6'5' or 6'6'.

Yeah, our TEs were banged up to start the season...we need those guys to get healthy and return, and then we'll have plenty of tall options for jump balls. Also saw K.J. Brent get a reception versus UNC: hopefully he's ready to become a more regular participator...

6'8? Is this guy a walk-on? Is he good enough to see the field?

Walk on from Rock Hill, if I'm not mistaken. Pretty sure he's the guy I remember catching a lot of passes when Rock Hill played Greer a couple years ago. I thought he was good, but I'm no expert on evaluating talent.

Who needs jump ball when Whitehurst and Byrd can out run them?

Tall receivers - you can get the ball up and let him go get it. Small fast receivers are very quick too and get some separation not only in open field but in a shortened field like the red zone. A quick move can get the small receiver a few feet of separation in a hurry.

Just my 2 cents

He's a couple inches shorter.

The Busta and Jerrell will provide this element once they're at 100%, and KJ Brent could contribute as well.

Once Shaq find his comfort zone, he'll be the one.
Alshon was great, but he can't jump as High As Shaq.

But Alshon's 3 inches taller. (Not that Shaq can't serve that same role.)

He is a project (as of right now). If we see him in a game, the game's outcome is already decided. Great kid and a gentle giant.

Also remember that most Cornerbacks at the college level are not going to be over 6" or 6"1' so even if you have athletic receivers like we do that are around that height or an inch or two smaller, that receiver is going to have a chance to go up and get it.

Size has a lot to do with jump balls, but it also had a lot to do with using your body in the air, and a good vertical if you're not gifted in pure height. We've got some guys that need to learn how to use their bodies in the air - and once they do that, they could be great jump ball threats. Smith, Brent come to mind.
