[QUOTE=D Rock;551655]I hadn't seen anything posted yet (besides your mock which I see now)...had this already been discussed?
The dude had a terrible QB but adjusted really well to passes that weren't on target, and showed some great body control to make the tough catches. I think he's impressive as a WR, even ignoring his speed.
He's also 6' 1", not one of these 5'6" to 5'9" pure speed guys[/QUOTE]
[COLOR=#00ff00]6'1" ? 4.19 40? He's got long arms too. How would you overthrow him?[/COLOR]

he didn't, he underthrew him on all of them...even 25 yard throws
[QUOTE=D Rock;551643]did you watch the video? I'm more impressed by the skills this guy shows than the videos I saw of Wallace coming out of school...and I like Wallace.[/QUOTE]
Chill D, it's good. He looks like he's worth taking a flier on. But low competition has to be taken into account. Chadman just gets a chuckle out of the 'how easy it will be to replace Wallace' crew.

I don't think it will be easy to replace Wallace. But not as hard as Megatron, AJ Green, ETC. Wallace wanted to succeed. Wallace had a good mentor in Ward. But what did he do becides run fast his 1st season in the NFL? That can be replaced if the rookie can catch also. I like Wallace but would not over pay for a GOOD WR. If he gets hurt what will he be then? NO ONE KNOWS. We have replaced GOOD WR's before. And my #1 argument about Wallace. He could not step it up in the superbowl like Holmes did before him.
His other stats are maybe even more startling.
And D Rock says he can catch too. Wow!

dude ran a 4.19 40 today at the Minnesota pro day (he played at Northern Iowa).
He's got great speed and adjusts to the ball much better than Wallace does. He looks like a true receiver with speed, not just a really fast guy.
Read on ProFootballTalk that Minnesota Vikings say he really ran in the high 4.3s. Still, that is fast. But, it is no 4.19. Prodays are notorious for these sorts of stories.
Thanks for posting the video. He looks interesting.
Wallace won't be as hard to replace as fans want to believe.
Replace a 4000 career yard, 32 TD WR with a guy likely to go undrafted...
Al Davis still lives!!
If only it were that easy.[/QUOTE]
I agree with you, Chadman. For all of his flaws, Wallace produced some significant numbers, and they are going to be hard to replace.
64 catches, 864 yards and 8 TDs are not that hard to make up. Whether it is one or multiple players we can replace that contribution. The sky won't fall

I never said it would. But I think that many of the anti-Wallace crowd underestimate his production and his impact. And those are his numbers from a down year. Despite the down year, Wallace is still #4 among active WRs in YPC despite catching more balls than many guys on that list.
If Wallace is so easy to replace with just any fast guy, why aren't there track guys all over the league putting up the numbers he did over the last few years?
He's a flawed player, but not nearly as bad as his detractors make him out to be.
