I believe he had less than 20 receptions in his entire college career. Lets see what he does on the field first.

I heard he was only targeted 12 times last season but all 12 were completed receptions with 3 TD's :o

JPP: 6'5" 270 lbs, 81 inch wingspan, runs 4.67 30 1/2 inch vertical



LOL, I can see one of the reasons JR was reminded of JPP. He was also asked about his receiving ability and stated they were satisfied with what they saw.

Brady thought throwing past JPP was like throwing into a forest. Here comes another mighty Oak. [:P]

What did Mike Pope do to the Giants that they make him earn his pay check year after year after year? lol

I really hope this kid turns his measurables into production.

Lol, I would think that Pope is salivating at the opportunity to mold this kid into something special

This guy would not have been an UDFA. From what I understand there were a lot of team interested in him. I think JR snapped him up at the end of the fourth round, knowing he wasn't going to be there at the bottom of the sixth.

Mercury

Though I wasn't in the war room, I suspect it was their plan all along to take him at the bottom of the fourth. They wanted this guy, pure and simple. He fits their mold for TE, or perhaps breaks their mold wide open with huge athleticism.

There are a bunch of pro bowl caliber UDFA in the league. We currently have 1 on our team, and have had others in the past (O'Hara, Seubert, etc..) . Draft grades are not an exact science and are often overrated.

No there aren't a "bunch" of Pro Bowl calibre UFDAs.

I think there were 4 if that in this last Pro Bowl (one of them being a FB no less). That's out of 82 people. That's less than 5%. Not exactly a "bunch".

UFDAs can be great players in the NFL but the *likelihood* is they won't. People need to stop romanticizing some of our successes of the past as if those were the norm.

Everyone wants the kid to be a receiver, and he may well become one on Giants, but keep in mind that he apparently can block right now. That's what will get him on the field. When Boss had to come in after Shockey broke his leg, he was not a good blocker. Hard work and Pope made him into an OK blocker. If Robinson can block and learn the play book, just imagine what a 22 set up w/ him and Martellus would bring to the table? And if either or both can catch, that would be plain frightening for ANY D in the league!

Considering the number of UDFAs to those actually drafted that make active rosters, 5% is probably an over representation league wide. That would then qualify it as being a "bunch."

Not the end of the world if we bust on a late 4th round pick. The upside of most players picked there is an "average starter". The upside of this guy is Jimmy Graham.

15 made it in 2011 according to Elias Sports Bureau! Three had at least 1,000 receiving yards, four rushed for at least 600 yards, and three had at least eight sacks. I'd call that a "bunch"!

To name a few Wes Welker, Victor Cruz , Arian Foster, and James Harrison.

Not to mention Jeff Saturday and Jason Peters both 5 time pro bowlers.

Then you have impact players like Nate Washington, Fred Jackson, LeGarrette Blount and BenJarvus Green-Ellis; Chris Clemons and Cameron Wake. And as much as we hate him Tony Romo although he didn't make the pro bowl he's had a pretty good career so far.

Pro Bowl caliber doesn't necessarily mean they had to make the pro bowl since it's a glorified popularity contest!

As I stated before draft grades are not an exact science!

Still has to go out there and be a football player. Athlete's aren't always football players. However I do think this is a great pick for us, and after a season of more than likely getting more limited snaps behind Bennett and learning from coach Pope, he could certainly be a monster in his 2nd season.
