In response to rkarp's comment:
I really cant tell. I think so far it has been a pitch and catch. Few more days until they get serious. The young guys are very athletic, that is obvious. Remains to be seen how they look in "real practice"....last year that is when it was obvious Ocho was out of place.
Taking a real early shot, yhe guy that LOOKS the worst imo is Jenkins. Hawkins to me looks very good.
Thanks for the first hand account I enjoy reading it. As I read it and digest it, I find it funny that within hours of you posting this, Hawkins was cut!
Shows you what I know! But really, this is what I was trying to say. What has been out on the field so far has been a pitch and catch, and the athletic guys are looking good. Very good. WOW good. This includes Dobson and Boyce. Jumping, diving catches, great head fakes, etc. But I am just a guy standing there sometimes, who is impressed by the athleticism. The coaches will know if the WR is in the right spot, ran the right route, is picking up the play book. So while Hawkins looks great, he most likely was struggling with the mental part. Hawkins is very fast, very shifty. He will get picked up in a simpler offense (Jets?) .
My comments regarding Jenkins were that he does not look good compared to the other WR. He does not make athletic plays. He is not fast, he is almost plodding. Put on 15 more pounds and he looks like a TE. But maybe he is always in the right spot, and always reads the defense exactly the same as the QB? Maybe he is a great blocker for a WR? I simply don't know.
