He doesn't look as fast as any of them. He's not beating anybody on his routes. & he's not breaking ankles or anything. So far, he looks like a WR2, an average one. Not Reggie Wayne to Marvin Harrison, not Torry Holt to Isaac Bruce., not Julio Jones to Roddy White.
Do you remember Demarius Thomas first year? 22 catches for 283 yards and 2 TDs. Second year? 32 catches, 551 yds, 4 TDs. Dez Bryant? 45 receptions, 561 yds, 6 TDs.
A rookie WR is not supposed to get open every time or outrun NFL competition. The question is: can he get the job done when the ball is passed to him.
Perhaps Nuk won`t be a WR that just outruns his competition - perhaps he will just be one with great route running and catching ability. And that`s ok - as a matter of fact that`s just what we need: a WR that can get us first downs when Andre is covered and that can catch the ball in the endzone. So far he is the best looking rookie WR!
