Most of the knocks on this kid had nothing do with him but was mostly attibuted to the qb play. The word is Tommy Streeter lacked fluidness and comfort which was not altogether true. Much of Streeters percieved lack fluidness was do to the indecisiveness of Jacory Harris and Streeter simply not being sure of what was coming next.
THE REAL REASONS WHY STREETER IS A STEAL...
1. Look at the tapes..when have you ever seen a big guy like him get so wide open. Almost all of his catches are made in wide open space making it appear as if the coverages were blown. any real scout will tell you that if a wr is so wide open so consistantly its because he knows how to exploit the zone and attack it as well. Not only that, Streeter is so wide open on many of his deep catch's because he genuinely possess's the 4.4 speed he was clocked at during the combines. Because of his speed, He has a knack for sneaking away from zone coverages and slinking/slunking through them. Because of his size, he has a knack for burning man coverage while totally boxing out his man on inside slants while extending the reception range on the outs and fades.
2. At 6 foot 5 and 220 pounds with 4.4 speed...no opposing D can leave him in man coverage. Watch the tapes and see Streeter make great catch's in man coverage. True, he's no Andre Johnson but he can become a phenom with a good qb like Flacco who can at the least read a Defense. His big body will keep the db's behind him on short pass's in man and will stretch the zone on 3rd and long.
His lack of experience may explain why he went so late in the draft but his tapes, speed and ability to get so wide open do not lie on him. Street alone makes this years Ravens draft a B grade enstead of a C grade.
