    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.

    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.

    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.
