    Interesting comp. He reminds me a bit of Holmes, but without the attitude. Decent speed, but more fast that quick, with an ability to get himself open on intermediate routes.

    I was thinking that of that mid-90's group, I see more Andre Hastings in Manny Sanders than Ernie Mills.


    The Only Acceptable 2017 Draft Results For Some Steeler Fans:
    1.30 OLB T.J. Watt, Wisconsin
    2.62 CB Ahkello Witherspoon, Colorado
    3.94 CB Cameron Sutton, Tennessee
    3.105c CB Howard Wilson, Houston
    4.135 CB Damontae Kazee, San Diego State
    5.173 CB Brian Allen, Utah
    6.213 CB Marquez White, Florida State
    7.248 OLB Keion Adams, Western Michigan

    Yancey had a couple of 1300 yard receiving seasons as a Steeler...Sanders still doesn't have 1000 yards combined in all 3 NFL seasons...I'd hold off on that comparison at this point.

    I was thinking more style about being able to get open and get YAC.

    Okay...I was thinking Hastings, because he was a similar smooth athlete type and was effective on 3rd downs.

    Such a great post goes unnoticed. I agree I believe Gilreath to have the tools to be the real deal.
