I like this signing too, I think Moncrief could be a good piece with the offense. Better QB should help him out as well. He's got decent size and speed.

Interesting fit. Big guy, a little redundant with JuJu. We’ve got two solid slot WRs with Rogers and Switzer. JuJu is the main guy now. Washington and a draft pick could round things out. I like the signing for depth purposes, but there is such a huge drop off from AB to any of these other guys as a starter.

Man, you both just beat me!

It's a start. Good depth; catching the football when he's targeted has been the issue with him. Lt's see the $$$ and terms and we'll know how they see it.

that right there especially...gonna get a way more catchable ball from Ben rather than Bortles, and Ben can wait for you to get open like nobody else when need be

He couldn't catch it from Luck or Brissett, either.

I’ll be damned. I actually like what I saw from Moncrief. Big dude and can catch. Can also go the distance. Played in every game last season and averaged 14 yards per last season with Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler throwing him footballs.

I like it!

For those who aren’t familiar with Moncrief:
He ran a 4.4-second 40 yard dash at 6′ 2″ 221 pounds with a 39.5-inch vertical and a 132-inch broad jump coming out of Ole Miss in 2014. Big guy, very athletic.

Has primarily been a #3 receiving option in his career, lining up on the outside running a lot of possession receiver routes. Digs, curls, etc.

He’s only going to be 26 this year and has essentially had 3 years of his career wasted. One with injury, one with Luck being hurt, and one with Bortles. Still he put up very solid 3rd option stats.

Totally Perch. I think his upside is as good as Tate or Funchess but will have come to us far cheaper.

Watch his highlight film on YouTube if y’all want a look. Some big plays against the Steelers in the bumble bee uniforms.

Also, he was catching the fade right from Luck pretty damn well. 21 career touchdowns as Perch said as primarily a 3rd target. Oh, and did I mention Bortles and Kessler were throwing him passes last season?

This signing seems really good to me. Add a young speedster by the end of R2, grab a young TE to groom and focus the rest on defense.

1.20's going to be a WR, isn't it?

Man, they interviewed all the first round WRs at the combine. I think it’s a deep WR draft so maybe 2 is the WR and 1 is Devin Bush to get under your skin.

He's not a Steeler until he drops a ball and KC dubs him "Donte Monqueef"

Moncrief"s biggest issue: he catches almost everything with his body, and frequently in his breadbasket, a la Mike Wallace. Your not going to see him win as many 50/50 balls as he should because he waits for the ball to come down to him most of the time.

we drafted our most recent #1 all-pro WR in round 6.

it's very hard to judge college kids and whether they will ever become "bona fide #1 WRs" --

moreover, do you really need one to win the super bowl?

Edelman
Jeffrey

last 2 #1 wr's who won super bowl

I like him more than B2B does. He’s got good instincts and covers a ton of ground. Could stand to improve in man coverage but he’s good dropping in zone. Lacks some size and will get caught up in the wash. To me he’s like all the rest of these new wave hybrid LBs, Shazier included. You sacrifice some size and physicality for a guy who can play sideline to sideline and cover a ton of ground. He’s one of those, for better or worse.

yes agreed, just saying nobody jumps opff the page as a stud you take high up in the draft...AB in the 6th rnd is very rare..hopefully we re not waiting around that long to find the next stud
