He's a deep threat only... but Shanny usually does a great job of making those type of guys contribute (see Eddie Royal & Armstrong as rookies). This guy could be better than those guys due to his size and leaping ability.
I agree, doesn't have near the speed of Armstrong but not many do. He is pretty shifty and can shake tackles after the catch. He has good body control and footwork with keeping his feet in bounds. I think his best attribute is just going up and getting the ball and he's very good in the redzone. Him and Dwayne Harris who the cowboys drafted last year made an awesome duo at ECU.

Nah, Danny Coale. Makes me actually heartbroken for someone like that to go to our arch rivals.

He signed with Carolina and is a WR.

Just saw Danny Coale went to the Cowboys. That's very disappointing.

Re: UDFA Thread

It's one of those weird things that actually bothered me to the core. Like I see his dad almost every day driving into work. His brother is a pretty cool dude and his family overall is very humble about him yet I'm going to root for him to be totally terrible for the Cowboys.



I'm a baaaaaad person.

He was still 1st Team All-Big Ten in 2011.

Seems like a pretty good road grater who has terrible knees...
Yes, stock up on those midwestern road graders.

Re: UDFA Thread

Ogelsby does not sound like a ZBS fit at all; seems it's not all Shanahan making the calls. :FIREdevil

He must have run into some Eagle fans while looking for real estate , and thought to himself ( I have to get the HELL out of here ) .

I thought he'd signed w/ Philly, so did he ask to be released? Did they cut him? More info

He must have decided that wearing that ghastly green was not worth the extra 25 cents the Eagles were offering.

Re: UDFA Thread

Lewis is a weird fit for a Shanahan offense: limited agility, goes down after the catch, can't block even the most stationary target, but he's a legit priority NFL UDFA with a receiving future in the league. He's great at playing on the football. And calling him a possession target sells his vertical ability short: he can break a cushion and run deeper intermediate 9 routes.

I don't think he'll make the crowded field at receiver here and he's probably more likely to sign elsewhere on cut day than to come back to our practice squad, but he's a good pickup. He'll likely gain a Marko Mitchell kind of buzz with catches in training camp.

No I think they got some additional players and to make room let him go. Not at all uncommon at this time of year for UDFAs to move quickly from team to team.
