How hard is it to play a number of snaps well with typical TE assignments? I'm not being flippant. There's the QB is rolling out and needs you to be an open target play. Not that hard if you have strength, good hands, reasonably fast running routes. TE chips his man and rolls off and becomes part of the QBs progression. Right?
By the way, Emory Jones is extremely good at taking a snap and rolling out- effortless. TE finding space should be hard to defend. I don't know why TE has been the lost position of the past two regimes but I guess we expect that to change.
I don't disagree, if he gets in football shape I see him playing a good bit this year. Kids got a lot of talent.
As our WRs and route running sucked and passing plays were poorly designed, we had no separation on routes and were easy to defend. Look for better designed plays and routes to open field more, create confusion, and allow us to create mismatches and opportunities in space
A lot of people seem to be forgetting the jump-ball threat Krull brings with his great height. It isn't just a matter of being physical with him, it's being able to simply go up and out-stretch a defender for a catch. Can't count how many times I've seen teams with these huge TE's or WR's who've been able to bring down an important catch over the reach of a defender because their QB was just able to throw the ball up extra high knowing the receiver could go up and get it.
Savage will certainly help get him in shape.
yep. Dude's open even when he's covered.
Ever wonder why Savage has a 12 car garage but he only has 6 cars?
So, he's got a garage much like that of Professor X of X-Men fame, huh.
How many people are in his family? How many cars does each one need.
Now, admittedly, I heard about a huge house yesterday that is shared by 9 families, other than situations like that, I can't think of any reason to have a 12 car garage. I mean, think how many Bicycles you could fit in there. And you'd likely have room to build an Airplane and still fit in a few cars (a friend of mine is currently using his family room to hold airplane parts while his car sits outside as he builds in his garage.
Yes, but was Polite a threat to catch a pass.? This Krull has an insane vertical, height and wingspan that Polite does not have, so he is an ideal target for a jump ball if he has hands and has some ability to block in the red zone.
Emory Jones highlight video.
Emory is going to be a good one.
Fall practice only about 6 weeks away. ~shivers~
There's a video on Krull's twitter page of him doing a workout. He does the vertical jump test and his vertical would have put him among the best in the latest NBA combine. This dude is a freak! Seriously! His HS stats are extremely impressive as well. He had over 50 catches as a senior. I'm not sure what kind of offense he played in...or how big he was in HS, but could you imagine a HS safety trying to cover/tackle him? Hell, can you imagine a college 6'1 200lb safety trying to cover and tackle a 6'7 255lb TE? I hope we utilize him in this offense. I expect the offense will be very run oriented (this year at least), but we certainly have the weapons to have an explosive passing offense as well....if we can find a QB.
Dude sounds like a freak. I can't wait to see this kid play.
I actually believe this guy will have the biggest impact for our offense this year of all the recruits Mullen has picked up and possibly next year also. I am not saying he is an Hernandez but....... And Coach DM knows how to use his tight ends. Whether it's for blocking or getting them the ball for a big play. And I believe we have some other very good tight ends to compliment him.
Ingram before injury was great pass catching TE. Watch Chris Leak throwing to him in the National Championship game
