It's not just his speed and vision. It's his stride.
I was comparing him to Tavon Austin and Archers' strides are ridiculous.
He burns people with his speed. But players think they have an angle on him and 2 strides later, that angle is gone.
He is gonna be extremely difficult for defenses to account for. This is gonna help our other playmakers on the field, like Bell and Blount. Like Brown, Moore, Wheaton and Bryant. Like Miller.
And the kickers and punters are in trouble 'cause you are gonna be kicking to Brown, Blount or this guy.
Eager to see what affect his mere presence has on opposing defenses and special teams.

The NFL isn't exactly track & field. A long strider that is very short like Archer is not necessarily a good thing. He would expect guys like CJ to have a longer stride simply because it mirrors their body size...so I wouldn't consider those big guys long striders for that reason.
I mean, why use three strides when you can use two. Less energy expended. You can always drop your stride, to throw players off, and-BAM- your stretch it back out and you are by them and they can't do a damn thing about it.
He is very deceiving.
