Rashod Bateman at 23?


Recommended Posts

I’m seeing him getting mocked to us at 23 a lot.  Some scouts are comparing him to Michael Thomas, I think that’s a little generous I see him as a better, faster Quincy Enunwa.

He doesn’t play fast. That I’m sure of. To each their own tho, he has his fans. I wouldn’t look his way until R3 at the earliest.

That is really surprising. I’d thought he was really slow when I watched him before. On second glance maybe I was watching bad highlights. I dunno. Curious to see how the other times look.

At that speed, I'm back on the Bateman train.  He has some issues to clean up for sure, but I'm a sucker for receivers that have good route stems.  I would love to hear his 3 cone time as well.

If Terrace Marshall Jr. is there at 23 I think I'm taking him over Bateman. 

Terrace Marshall >> Rashod Bateman for a laundry list of reasons

Do you trust that the numbers are from a training facility that he pays to train at? I'm skeptical if the team scouts aren't the ones doing the times.

No worthy Wrs at 23 if you ask me.  The guys I really like will be gone.  The value at 23 will be at CB, Oline maybe even linebacker or pass rusher.

 

I'm staking Paradis's reputation on this.

I'd like to see the others put up some numbers too because it's all going to be inflated this year.  But if he has even say 4.45 speed, I'm onboard, but that's because I think some of his issues can be fixed.  He has a false step at the snap, which limits his ability to get clean releases.  I think that's why he looks slow on tape at times because he doesn't explode out of his stance.  I thought Jefferson had a mini version of this problem at LSU, where at times he'd have a false step before moving off the line, but he didn't do it like every play with Bateman,  If that can be coached out, I think he could be a really good guy.

This is going to be the biggest problem this year in trying to get accurate metrics.  There is a reason guys typically run faster at pro days than the combine.   At least the combine provides electronic timed drills and they are all on the same surface.   
 

As far as Bateman goes, I’d be more surprised if he ran sub 4.4 than when Claypool put up his surprising times last year.

Interesting comparison - I know it’s not stylistic. I thought Claypool looked slow too. Obviously the time didn’t raise him too far, and clearly he looked quite good last year.

Maybe it's ND, but I swear I was surprised by St. Brown, Boykin, and Claypool on their 40 times.  It's actually part of the reason why I wasn't as high on Claypool last year, because they seem to have all these guys that can run track speed, but the offense is slow as hell.

Bateman 4.39 40

 

Not bad for a “slow” WR

with no combine I don't believe a thing any of these pro days come out with.  Speed, measurements, nothing.

Typical pro day 40:

Maybe the laser gun was biased

Or a 'tweaked hammy' always comes in handy.

Would prefer Terrace Marshall at #34 rather than #23, especially if there's an excellent OL or CB available at #23.

I would hit 4.4s this year. 

You know how so many times an announcer will say "this guy plays way faster than his Metrics?" This season it's gonna be just the opposite.😃
