Anyway, my point is just that our FO values consistency obviously since Reese who had developmental upside, was too inconsistent to make the roster.
He weighed 160 pounds. Sooo that 3 cone time isn't impressive. Neither is a 4.45 40 at that weight. He had one impressive attribute and that was his vert.

Reese is not a freak athlete. That term gets used way too often. If Reese put up those combine numbers at 210, then I would consider him a freak athlete.

And their shortfalls are definitely not the same. Reese could run routes. Coates was only asked to run a third of the route tree.

Their only similarity is how often they were asked to run 9 routes, and their hands. It ends there.
Mods, time4aRing needs a little timeout.
