From Chris Price on WEEI.com:
The thing about JE that strikes me (besides the quickness) is his strength with the ball. The guy is hard to bring down.
Box O Rocks :snob::snob::snob: had this guy nailed down in our draft forum.
... no problem Box ... bask in the glory.
He not only works hard for the extra yards, but he protects the ball well too.
He's a SMART player who understands his role and works to get the best result for each play. He seems to have an intuitive understanding of where the sticks are, and what the best result for each play should be.
He has GREAT potential, and will fit in well with both the team, and the system.
I'm looking for some kind of option play where the ex QB gets to throw it 40 yards downfield to a streaking Moss. I predict we won't see it this week, but in San Diego.
Maybe also a little Wildcat thrown in.
And Connor Barwin got Brady all riled up.
So where in the scouting process were they able to see that the kid works his @$$ off?
One word: JACKPOT!
Anyone see Tim Tebow as a wide receiver?
Recent college quarterbacks who were able to convert to wide receiver in the NFL.

I'm not sure that I can see wideout. But like some others on this board have mentioned in other threads, maybe more of an H back/TE? He's got a lot of the strength for that position without necessarily having the quickness for WR. Maybe a Tebow H-back motion for a direct snap type of look?
He actually looks quicker and faster than Welker.
That Elderman has not been used in any special play/s this whole season, shows you how unimaginative this Offensive coaching staff is.
A 7th round rookie looking to make a position change... not necessarily the best idea to have him focusing on anything but learning to play WR, especially since he lost time with a broken arm.
That's because he is quicker and faster. The only reason he hasn't outperformed Welker is the tiny difference of a decade or so of experience for Welker at WR/RB.
40-yard dash: WW 4.65, JE 4.52
Short shuttle: WW 4.01, JE 3.91
[As was mentioned on this board before, this was so fast that the scouts didn't believe it. He ran it even faster the second time.]
3-cone: WW 7.09, JE 6.62
Vertical jump: WW 30", JE 36.5"
[Disturbingly, Edelman's vertical is 1" less than Mt. Vollmer's. ]
Broad jump: WW 9'5", JE 10'3"
I just measured my best broad jump....
In reading the statistics you listed, it's just amazing what professional athletes are capable of!
Vollmer has a vertical leap of 37"? You gotta be sheeting me!
Maybe top end speed. No one is quicker then welker.
Vollmer could probably just reach up for a grab at the height most slot guy's vertical leap, haha.
Seriously though... Vollmer for TE?
Yep, kudos to BOR. There are a few others in there who are well worth reading and listening to, sadly they simply get drowned out by the complete morons that inhabit this place nowadays.
I believe the internet has survived solely because of a surplus in the world of complete morons. Just consider some of these guys to be the gems among the UFA's of life.
Perhaps it's me, but my brain translated that entire answer to:
He reminded us of Welker, but he was playing the wrong position.
where did you get that information from?
