    He just does not seem to be anything but another guy, nothing special. I think there are other people that could be kept in front of him. Any thoughts?

    For a 1st yr wide reciever, he's playing better then London, Armstrong and Camarillo....looks like a keeper to me.

    I have seen nothing from his play that would indicate that he is better than any of those aforementioned players. I do not agree.

    Hartline has good hands, has pretty good size, runs really quick routes for his height, and is 22.

    Not ordinary at all. Better than Patrick Turner IMO (and I like him too)

    He started this game. They say he's made more big plays than anyone else in camp. Give this kid a couple years and he really might be exactly what we wanted. A faster more talented version of Camarillo.

    And nothing to say he isn't, which makes them about the same...tie goes to the rookie. Bye Bye Brandon....Armstrong will be gone in the first cuts....if not Monday.

    SO after 2 games he is nothing? What about Ginn? Many say it takes a WR 3 years to develop. But 2 games is enough for Hartline?

    I agree Armstrong probably will not be with the team on Monday.

    Disagree, he made a very big and tough catch in the 1st half, shows very good hands and runs very good routes. He is big, can block, can play ST, and is very strong mentally. Like finsfan said, he has looked better then London, Armstrong and Camarillo.

    Hartline if he makes it wil be either 4th, 5th, or maybe if they keep 6, the 6th receiver, so he will not get many chances to catch a ball during the season, so he needs to prove that when he does get thrown to, he makes it count....which he has, and needs to show he is valuable in ST, which is also a big yes.

    Hartline has been as solid as any receiver besides maybe Bess. He is also a Sparano find.

    I don't think he is better the Patrick Turner, but he is looking like a keeper!

    I have a feeling he'll get more looks - and consequently catch more balls - this season than many think. He's very quick for a 6'2 WR, and his speed is good enough to make him a deep threat. Beyond that, he does the little things, and that will get him more playing time.

    I've gone through the rant about how he was underrated because of his QB situation in college enough on this site, but he has the size and speed to play outside and the quickness and toughness to play slot - rare combo. Went from liking the kid more than most to loving the kid.

    I like him. As mentioned earlier, he's like a bigger Camarillo. He can catch, runs good routes, is smart, and plays ST.

    He is Cam V2.0...

    Good hands & size with some speed. Who knows if he will pan out to be a solid #2 or #3 option. But right now we do not have a major need for him to be great. We just need him to focus and work hard.


    I hear that he was on meds with the Buckeyes, has anyone else heard that? Not that it makes him a bad person or anything like that! Just that if true, I could see him losing his cool a few times & getting a little yellow flag for 15 yards, the wrong way.

    Big target in the endzone, does not lose many of those close and dirty one-on-one battles. I dont like the Cam comparison, but he gets open(ish) and usually comes up with the ball. I like him, obviously 53-material.

    I like Hartline far more than I thought I would when we drafted him. He is smart, has good speed and has shown really good hands. At this point he has clearly outplayed Armstrong and has been better than London. I am not sure if I go with the Camarillo comparison, Camarillo is more shifty. At this point my 5 receivers are Ginn, Bess, Camarillo, Turner and Hartline. If I keep a 6th then it's London, but I think that is becoming less likely.

    I didn't like pick either but the kid has good size and seems to have some fight to him. If he starts the season opener with Ginn, that would be huge for him.

    :err:Are you being serious?? Thats like saying we would like the Pat White pick more if he was white. Why is this the case?? Thats like saying you would pass on a stud white runningback because he is not black. :crazy:

    I pretty much have to agree with this hands down.

    Except I think Hartline has a chance to catch a couple more balls than you're predicting. If I remember right, we were running a couple 4 or 5 WR formations with the first team last night, specifically in the red zone. And Pennington did target Hartline twice in a row on that one red zone series.

    One thing about both of our newly drafted receivers is with their size, the down field blocking potential for our running game. Perhaps if Hartline does not make the roster he goes on the practice squad and comes up when and if somebody gets hurt. Then again Sparano likes guys that play multiple roles and Hartline fits that role with his special teams prowess so that might be enough to make the roster out right. I see a problem at RB with Hilliard showing so well that we can't stash him on the PS, and Hartline not being highly thought of in the draft, the Trio might take a chance on trying to 'hide' Hartline there for a while.

    I think Hartline will turn out to be a clutch reciever. During a tight game playing against a good team, how many times do you need that one guy to make the crucial reception?
    Pennington likes him alot because he sees that fact. He catches everything thrown his way.What he lacks in top tier athletism he makes up for with intelligence and guts.The guy has alot of heart like Wes Welker. I like him alot and I think he will be the 2-3 reciever depending on the match ups. The coaches know what they are doing.

    People seem so eager to improve on Camarillo. Hartline looks good but Camarillo plays balls out. He plays with all kinds of heart and overachieves. He always finds a way to make something happen. And that sort of playmaking ability isn't easily quantified. Hartline might be bigger and faster but that doesn't make him better. Camarillo somehow finds a way to achieve. Don't rule him out.

    Still early, but it looks like Ginn, Bess, Rillo, Turner and Hartline to me.

    they isolated him in the broadcast on the Ronnie TD last night and pointed out that he made the block that sprung Brown. He picked off Ronnie's man but did it 'legally'... REAL heads up play... This kid is going to be good if he keeps doing the little things.

    i really like this kid. he made a good block early in the game and has shown he has good hands. he also has really good size and could turn into a good redzone target.
