No. Just no.

His route running is below average. His explosion is below average. He's just a white college receiver who runs behind clear-out routes.

Reminds me more of Desean Jackson with a little less explosion but a little more physicality.

He runs a low 4.4 to high 4.3 consistently. I think he will have more of the deep routes this season with Givens leaving early. So time will tell. i'm sure as he matures so will his route running and explosiveness. We had coach Galloway at WV and he did wonders with our wr's, i expect he will help Campanaro with his development as well.

The next Wes Welker is named Julian Edelman.

Wait, I thought Edelman was a defensive back???

Short white WR = Wes Welker

Hell, for the media the short part isn't even necessary.

He is Italian.

Without checking the archives i want to say he stood out the week leading up to the US Army game a couple of years back. This may not be as far fetched as it would seem.

My point is that what makes Welker special is quite rare. He gets in and out of his breaks better than any other player in the NFL. It doesn't mean that other players aren't better, but I really doubt anyone will ever do what he does the way he does it.

The guy just reminds me of a faster Julian Edelman (which isn't a bad thing in the right offense).

I think he is taller than Welker. I also found this from the UA game. Should be interesting to see his #'s this year as the main target. A buddy of mine told me he will be working with Antonio Brown and Welker in the off season at bommarito's place.

bored of education 01-22-2012 12:42 PM

We all know that the next Wes Welker plays for the Rams and his name is Greg Salas.
