Very true, and football isn't as popular in Europe as well so the talent difference would be completely different. Our D1 soccer players would get killed in Europe, so I'd expect our football players to manhandle their football players. I'm sure the talent he went against in Europe was nothing compared to what he went against at his university.
Also, the comment about Ingram is a great one. I completely forgot about him, but don't recall him ever messing up a snap. He's been great at a position that nobody gets credit for. I'm actually surprised Vollmer gets so much love, because O-line is pretty similar in respect. It just goes to show how great he's really been.
Tate hasn't played long enough to really be able to tell. He was coming off and injury and then got hurt again. That's not the best time to truly judge a WR, so I have high hopes for him next season when he's healthy and knows tha playbook.
Edelman and Pryor have been great as well. Hopefully Edelman can put some more muscle on in the offseason so he doesn't get injured so much.
As someone mentioned before, it'll be very exciting watching these players and the many rookies we should have next year play together and grow. It's strange how quickly the team has changed players. Last draft, this draft, and the two drafts to come are going to be almost our entire team for a very long time. It'll be pretty fun watching them grow, as long as the next two are as successful as this one.
