good stuff there goatcheese, would like to see them myself. only thing I can remember is that Connecticut uses different packages sometimes soft zone other times man to man. Against Rutgers they used primarily zone & Britt (who you see I have as 1st rd. talent) lit them up for 107 yards I believe yet did not score a TD. North Carolina with Hakeem Nicks they used Butler in man to man Nicks had like one catch for 8 yards. As you noticed there was a run on WR @ the end of the 1st rd. I see them all pretty fluid & could move from team to team depending on individual workouts etc... the one thing these match-ups tell me is Butlers playing speed is around 4.5 that covers most NFL WR's but has to work with his back peddle & technique against the faster ones like a Britt otherwise the cushion is too deep. from watching these players thats my gut feeling anyway. bottom line the talent is there, is developing to the fullest potential the challenge.
