This guy actually strikes me as the perfect replacement for MM.
Colston plays now primarily out of the slot, he still lines up out wide, but in NO, Payton has him play the slot wr a lot.
he's got big play potential, is a probowl talent, but could be had for fairly cheap.
He also played college ball at Hoffstra, so he has ties to NY.
He has great body control, and is amazing at the seam routes and post routes. he also can take a 5 yd out route the distance. He gives us the size that Reese and Eli love, but also the speed and big play ability that MM displayed.
Plus, he is a humble, quiet guy who puts in the work. If he grasps our system, he could be a 100 reception a year guy, i honestly believe that.
Watching him abuse slot cb's and lb's is beautiful. the way brees would throw that jump ball when the defender had his back to brees and the ball and colston would go up and catch it right before the ball hit the defenders back was beautiful. colston can go up and catch the ball at its highest point.
he has produced since entering the league. over 6000 yards in 6 years, amazing body control, great size and speed combination, can line up out wide or in the slot, gives our wr corp more dynamics...he just strikes me as a potential perfect fit and big time playmaker for us, especially in the redzone.
