And yeah, he might get a little bored in this offense. Then again they say he's a good perimeter blocker, and that would be a nice plus for us.
Abbrederis seems to me more in the mold of Jacoby Jones if you ask me -- 6'2" and elusive. He's quick at identifying seams on returns before or as they develop (like JJ), and appears to just get vacuumed right through them - almost no delay between seeing the hole and zooming through it. Abbrederis - I have read - "does not have a super 40 time" and "lacks elite speed" but yet .... its funny how every time I see him play he's blowing the top off somebody's Parade All American secondary or taking a punt to the house.
To me he looks like a legit burner on the outside. Maybe the second 20 yards is blazing but the first 20 aren't, or something and thats' why his 40 is where it is. It'll be interesting to watch him run at the Combine for sure and see why his 40 time is reported to be slower than what he looks like at game speed. Because he sure looks fast as all get out once he hits full stride. I can't remember anyone catching him in the open field.
I like him, and if JJ walks, to me he'd be as good a choice as a replacement as any. Especially if he falls into the third round where I think he'd be a great value.
