I like this kid. Check out some highlights below. I hate to say it, but he is very reminiscent of Mike Wallace from Pitt. And dare I say, faster. He is lanky and tall and has a good catching mechanic--very much a hands catcher. I'm sure this pick had something to do with our UMiami pillars; they will bring out the best in this kid.

Best of all, is his U-given nickname: "Touchdown Tommy."

If he can get on quick--heck, if he can just suffice to run a bunch of 9 routes--he will give our offense the spark to go next level. Remember the passing conundrum that San Diego presented? That'll be US. Two killer wideouts that WILL burn you deep, an all-pro vet at slot, and some very dependable TEs (especially Pitta). Not to mention Rice out of the backfield. And, oh yeah, there's the running game that is really our heartbeat.

I like, I like. Get TD Tommy in here and may he never stop running those flys after the first one in rookie camp.

PURPLE JUICE ALERT: GIDDY FAN BIASED STATEMENT TO FOLLOW: With that last catch in the Ball So Hard video, I'm thinking he would have caught the one vs. the Patriots and we would have gone on to beat the Giants in the Super. He fought for it down to the ground, Evans.

LOL...you forgot to post the entire post:

"Streeter needs to develop the technical parts of his game to be able to demand consistent playing time on the outside. He false steps often at the snap and has a below-average burst off the line, and although he uses his length well to avoid press, could have issues once teams start to get in his face at the line of scrimmage. Runs sloppy routes and isn't definitive in his movements."

This is why he lasted untill the 6th round Cletus.

Too many fans forget that the purpose of the later rounds (and the reason why there are players still available to be drafted): kids with potential but need work and kids who probably will never make the squad, but the team needs bodies for camp.

Clarence moore went to a small school and wasn't rated highly in the draft. Streeter went to the U and was rated as high as late second rd talent by some evaluators. Other then the height, there is no comparison at all.

He was rated as highly as late second round talent. You forgot to mention that, Cletus.

There are a number of reason why the NFL (Not First League) teams pass on players...

1. Combine performance or non-performance
2. Vital Statistics (Size, Strength, Speed, etc.) when the guys are wearing undies.
3. School reputation
4. Game film (or lack thereof)
5. Herd mentality
6. Team needs

NFL is a copycat league: almost any fad gets copied. (Case in point, the Wildcat). There are lots of reasons why someone drops in the draft....they just don't share them with us!

Even if the ONLY thing he does is run down field - opposite Torrey Smith - he makes the Ravens a better passing team. He opens up the field for everybody (particularly in the midde) for Rice and the TEs and Boldin in 3 WR sets. And he open up the outside for Torrey Smith - they can't double both Streeter and Smith.

P.S. from the video I saw it would appear that he can also catch the ball.
