"Yeah I didn't get targeted because the offense was focused on Harry to prop him up so that explains why I only had 33 catches as a JR".DJB wrote: ↑Fri Feb 07, 2020 9:54 amdjeternal2 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 06, 2020 7:07 am
Brandon Aiyuk? You mean the guy that put up a whopping 33 474 3 line in his JR year across from NKeal Harry who most everyone has been poopooing for the last year? He's a one year wonder. Have fun with that. I hope a lot of people buy into the tweet that scouts have him rated higher than Harry who he couldn't even come close to beating out. That said I do agree with Edwards and I think he dropped on a lot of draft boards because he went back for his senior year. I'm hoping he'll drop to the second round in rookie drafts.
Go listen to move the sticks podcast with DJ and Bucky where they interview Aiyuk.
Aiyuk explained that the scheme was so that most targets were funneled to Harry to prop him up as a draft prospect . Now the same could be said for Aiyuk this year but he's very tslented.
This is such a weird excuse for his lack of production before this year.
Much more likely that Arizona St. ran a very run heavy offense and they only had enough volume for one receiver to shine. Harry was just better than Aiyuk throughout their ASU careers, so he saw the lion's share of the targets.
