Armanti doesn't have the Penningtonitis that Clausen does though. Kid has an arm.

lmao at people who compare "running shape" to "legs" and who cannot wrap their head around the drastic change of muscle memory and conditioning it would take for a QB to change to a WR all whilst moving up to the NFL. Even for a mobile QB this is a task.

we have some real dumb-asses here

Have we seen anything out of Armanti that would lead us to believe he is good...or even has potential...at the NFL level?

I think you wanna ask yourself that.

And since he has yet to be activated for an NFL game I am gonna guess the simple answer as "no"

Why do you ask?

the catch and run on 4th down in the last preaseason game for a first down.

displayed good hands as a reciever. at least fielded punts decently in the final preseason game. other than that no.

but has lafell shown anything either?

Was Edwards inactive because of the Sunday roster numbers game or was he inactive because Hurney said he "lost his legs?"

If it was because of numbers, okay. But if it was because he supposedly "lost his legs" why not simply use him as a situational WR, like a #3 or #4 because while he may not have the every-play, every-down legs under him, he still has the burst that made him a threat at QB and he's certainly showed the ability to catch a pass... at least during the pre-season.

I'd like to get excited about Edwards, but the glowing practice reviews will have to come from someone not named Darin for me to buy into it.

concurred. even being a fan of the guy, you can't get excited about somebody until theyve actually done something.

The dumb-assery started in April, when Hurney traded up to draft a QB and said "We envision him being a Punt Returner/Wide Receiver".

Maybe he will become a great PR/WR. Maybe he won't. Right now, based on reports from consistent writers, and what we saw in Pre-season, it's going to take a lot of work.

And it's a hell of a gamble to draft a player out of one position and expect him to start playing another. It crosses the line of stupid when you give away a pick in the next season's draft to do so, AND you were in pretty bad shape on Special Teams and needed another reliable WR going into the draft.

We passed on Jordan Shipley, for a Division 1-AA Qb, to play WR...

Oh i know the answer. He looks like a waste of a draft pick who will never go anywhere in the NFL. I hope he proves me wrong. And gets his "legs" or whatever the hell he is supposed to be doing
