    Not the athlete josh Gordon is.

    I don’t think Keyshawn played the ball in the air that well.

    I think Brandon Marshall had better feet and maybe a little more fluid for separation.

    Not sure what the comp is here. I guess Keyshawn with more ability to go get it in the air and use his body to his advantage makes sense. Athlete seems similar

    All I know is I’m playing off on p Williams as mucb as tbe sticks allow me to. I’m not doing him any favors and getting in his hip so he can use that body on me at the catch point vertically.

    Play off force him to show he can win in and out of cuts and rally to tackle. Don’t miss tackles

    I consider Keyshawn to be one of those guys that was a better collegiate player than pro.

    Athlete at the pro level limited him imo

    At least not a guy who lived up to his draft slot

    I hope they take him.But I never trust a player with domestic violence in their past.

    I actually thought the toe drag was the most jaw-dropping catch from Preston. The other 3 were not too far behind. That was a performance I would have still been impressed with if it was Jerry Rice who made those catches.

    How often does an undrafted WR get 4 catches worthy of being on a career highlight reel in their first half of action in their first preseason game?

    He reminded me of Victor Cruz, in his first preseason game. The catches he made had nothing to due with who was guarding him. He attacks the ball, very hopeful for this kid.

    Yea both Brandon and Josh got more twitch to their game but Preston's body control and timing looks good even if it was against backup players, Williams looks sub 4.6.

    No, he doesn't have a huge catch radius, but neither does Larry Fitzgerald, neither did Jerry Rice. It's overrated.

    Preston has relatively short arms for a guy his size at 33 inches and small hands at 9 1/8.

    Boy did he. I expected big things from him in the game to start with, but still he impressed me.

    He looked like a man among boys...It looked almost unfair.

    Minkah got smoked by the athlete in josh Gordon when they matched up. I’d like to see how he’d fare across from Preston Williams.

    I didn't follow the offseason/preseason as closely back then so I dunno - did he have some monstrous PS games?
