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.

LOL...don't you mean "instead." He is such a steal that 32 teams passed on him until the 6th round. He wasn't under the radar Cletus.

I too think Streeter was a steal! Can't wait to see Streeter on one side and Torrey Smith on the other - with Boldin and Pitta running crazy underneath - and Ray Rice standing around for the dump off just for the fun of it.

Isn't that the definition of a steal? Didn't Tom Brady get drafted in the 6th round also? Or was he not a steal because 32 other team's passed on him?:P

Great point. LOL

I'm looking forward to seeing Streeter in a 3 WR formation with Boldin in the slot. I think he could be a steal as well.

Yet, those attributes are worthless unless he has the most important one of all that cannot be taught and that is heart, or the ability to take a hit, something that Clarence Moore did not have.

Brady was passed on because of size and a bad pro day.

Funny isn't it that those are not the two most important things a receiver needs.

NCBird: EXCELLENT point. BRADY. 6th round. English major 'tru dat' thinks that he is worthless. Is that because he put 41 on the Steelers in their house recently? And previously beat them in their house in the AFC final?

By the way, Brady is 6-4, 225. He was passed up because of size?????? Did he grow 5 inches after his pro day??? BWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! MORON!!!!!

He didn't even have a pro day. He worked out at the combine. But being 20-5 as a starter at UMich and winning both of his bowl games must've spoken well for the guy.

Bottom line, everyone regrets passing him over.

Oh, and, why don't YOU go out and tell one of these 6th rounders that they're no good, "Tru"? Go challenge one of 'em. They're 6th round, right??? YOU CAN TAKE 'EM!!

some steelers fans even wanted him in particular http://forums.steele...ead.php?t=88856

Baltimore getting Streeter hurts. it would have been a great steal for the Steelers to get Streeter in the 7th to culminate a draft of steals for them.


I think this is the ONLY problem with this draft. With Baron Batch healthy now, I just don't see the need for another WR. Now that he has gone to Baltimore it may come back to bite us in the ***.

And even the Pats didn't know what they had in Brady until Drew Bledsoe went down with an injury. Who knows if Brady would have ever had a chance if Bledsoe never went down.

Back to the topic: IMO the 6th-round pick was an excellent choice.

Ah yes.....much like Clarence Moore was a 'steal' right? Much like Randy Hines? Erin Riley? Tandon Not-Moss? And so on so forth. :rolleyes::o

Thanks bro for clearing this up...Brady did not get overlooked in the draft because of a bad pro day or his size...he got overlooked for good reason..he simply wasnt that great of a college qb...however, he did no how to win....

LOL....and since he had all those great attributes and also went to a major college he was draft in the 6th round.:rolleyes: Now point to Brady again who didn't have size, speed, or great arm strength as an example.;)

Brady weighs 210 now. He didn't when he graduated college. He is listed at 224, but everyone is listed bigger on stat sheets. Who knock the Raven's out of the playoffs this year? Why didn't the Wizard of Oz draft him. It is like the Ravens were set a QB then. Brady, Colsten, Webster, Montana, and didn't fit the size, speed, and other tangibles for their position. According to all you twits this kid is big, fast, and has great hands. Clue, he was not under the radar. He has zero burst and has trouble getting off the line. He can't return punts or kick-offs. He is not a special teams player. What he is is a one trick pony Cletus.
