Default Who does Nuk remind you of?

Is Nuk one of a kind? His ball skills remind of Randy Moss or Lynn Swann, but without the same high end speed. Maybe, an AJ Green.

Thoughts?

I think you are looking at hair style. I see more Moss than Fitzgerald but to be honest Hopkins is just Hopkins.

I don't remember Lynn Swann being all that fast... He was just a leaper with great body control, so that's not a horrible comparison.

Quote:
It's not just the little-known players, either.

Lynn Swann and John Stallworth became Steelers because of the diligence of scouts to get decent 40 times in 1974. Neither was considered fast for a wide receiver, but today their 4.6 times might put them in the middle of the draft or maybe not at all.

Coach Chuck Noll liked everything about Swann except the 4.7 times.

"Coach Noll was right," said Art Rooney Jr., then the Steelers' player personnel director. "He said the guy can't run. He really liked him and he said, 'Get a good time.' "

So Rooney arranged to time Swann on the West Coast. Swann ran a 4.55. That was good enough for Noll.

Stallworth, too, did not run particularly fast when timed on the grass field at Alabama A&M. Scout Bill Nunn took his stopwatch and went back down to time him in a different spot.

"I took him to another field near the school," Nunn said. "I got him in 4.58, 4.6, 4.62."

Nunn convinced Noll that Stallworth would last until the fourth round because other scouts had times above 4.7 on him.

Nuk reminds me of Boldin. He just gets it done.

The Texans have never had the QB on the field, in a regular season game, that would make Swann a HoF'er. It takes large huevos to put the ball up in the places Bradshaw did, in the coverages he did.

With his body control and ability to high point the ball he reminds me of a less speedy A.J. Green. Not quite as physically imposing as Firzgerald but if goes up he is coming down with it.

Default Re: Who does Nuk remind you of?

I remember I was trying to decide between Cordarelle Patterson and DeAndre Hopkins as my 1st round mock draft picks. ICak and I got into it a little bit and he mentioned Reggie Wayne as a bit of a comparison to Hopkins, and that seems clearer than ever to me now having seen him play.

In reference to the OP, I'd say watching him play brings to mind Torry Holt, to be honest.

im implying the good chad johnson. i.e. when the chad was firing he was very hard to stop. physically they possess similar attributes and there ability to locate and get the ball anyway in their vicinity is very similar

Default Re: Who does Nuk remind you of?

I'd say the good Chad Johnson, Anquan Boldin, and Reggie Wayne comparisons are probably the best so far.

I can see why the OP brought up Moss' ball skills, especially since from what Hopkins showed last game, but personally Moss' still has the superior skills and thus not a fair comparison. And even though you didn't bring up Moss' other attributes, it's tough to compare the two without bringing up Moss' height and speed.

Actauly a lot of those throws were pretty safe as they were along the sideline and high, either swann was going to come down with it or no one was. Seeing the limted time that we've seen between Hopkins and Schaub so far it already looks like he has more trust in Hopkins to make those types of catches. The guy almost never threw the fade to Andre.
