Cedric I don't mind depending on how the board falls, but I would rather get an impact player on Defense over him at 25. Funchess sucks....he's not even as good as Kelvin Benjamin, and still has the same type of issues running routes, stretching the field, lack of lateral movement skills and his hands aren't nearly reliable enough. If we didn't already have Kelvin, sure. But we need a quality route runner with sure hands, who can stretch the field and get YAC. Funchess isn't any of those things. I would much rather move up in the second to get Devin Smith than have Funchess anywhere near this team.
OBJ isn't really a good comparison IMO. Not as sudden or quick as Beck. OBJ created separation fairly naturally in the way he got in and out of breaks. There was no rounding off anything. He puts his foot in the ground and goes. Whether on a deep post, comeback, or an in. Beckham also has a set of ridiculous hands on him. He's just an athletic freak.
Not saying anything negative about Agholor, but OBJ is special.
He's a hybrid of Reggie Wayne and Jeremy Maclin, and that's a perfect compliment to KB.
Completely understandable. I've seen almost every snap Strong has played, and he's just not a difference maker to me. I think Agholor can be if utilized correctly, and no....that's not a "USC" thing. That's a "taking his skill set and looking how it fits" thing.
Okay, so basically he's a terrible blocker who you're making excuses for. Got it.
Sure, if that's what you took out it....cool.
How about this: Fundamentally, he's a sound blocker. He just doesn't finish them consistently because with his current strength level it creates challenges. There's no reason you couldn't assume that he'll become more consistent as he adds muscle in an NFL strength and conditioning program. Clear enough? Not an excuse, analysis. One that most profiles seem to mention as well.
I was pretty underwhelmed when I watched him. Took horrid angles in run support and chasing down players after the catch. Wasn't overly interested in sticking his nose in when coming into the box. Obviously has potentially crazy range, and flashed some decent ball skills.
