Thing about that Adams drop was that it bounced off the top of his hands. Adams is not a tall guy and we all know Cam misses high sometimes so that could be a concern. He connects to Smitty no problem though, so I'm sure he can build the same type of repore with Adams.

Also, man was it nice to see the O-Line all together. Gross, Silatolu, Kalil, Hangartner are going to be a wall.

Huge Razorback fan here, watched every game. He did have trouble catching the medium-deep passes that had more zip on the ball. Most of his big plays were short passes and then just let him do his thing and take it to the house. That being said, I highly doubt he's sees the field much this year as a receiver. He will give an immediate boost to our punt return, and maybe even some reverses/screen passes. He's only gonna get better, but I think that's really all that we should expect from him in his first year.

Not sure I concur with the drops happens stuff. You play like you practice. If Joe wants to see the field as something more than a STer, he has to do a better job of catching the ball. Rivera is not going to trust him if he does not clean this up.

I think pride should play a part in this. It should be a matter of pride that the ball does not hit the ground when it comes your way. I do not think it should be that much to ask for a professional football player to actually be able to catch a football.

Just my thoughts. And GOOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone who read his draft profile or saw him in person knows he has an issue with dropping passes. But when he does catch them, he can be electric. For me as long as he doesn't drop punts, he is going to be a huge asset.

Fun Fact-of-the-Day...

All receivers drop passes.

I thought I read that Cam throws undroppable passes . . .

I see Kalil keeping the rookie in check.

I hope you don't think I'm bitching about it. I merely stated that to be a bit sarcastic. I know they drop passes. Heck smith dropped a lot of passes. It happens. As long as he's ready to go by week 1, that's all that matters. And really his main focus will be ST. If he drops punts consistently then I'd worry like hell about it.

nah, i smelled your sarcasm over here.

not sure others did or they just embodied an attitude and mindset neither of us are crazy about.
