No, your comps were running backs in college, and you were comparing them to Gibson, a WR. You need to fix your process. You manipulated facts to fit your narrative. Gibson doesn't compare to those players. I could cherry pick an arbitrary set of requirements to make Gibson look just as bad as that "comp" you made, that neglected the actual position of the players when they played in college. Giving those receptions to Gibson is a comical attempt to lump him into a group of players he has no business being in, because he wasn't a RB. That's why he had 33 carries. Why don't you mention the carries/yards and TD's those other RB's had in the year they had at least 25 receptions?Krypto_King wrote: ↑Fri Sep 04, 2020 12:32 amclyde edwards-hilllllarious broJigga94 wrote: ↑Tue Sep 01, 2020 5:32 amI'm not a Gibson believer. I see a trend with a lot of these boom/bust guys, that the doubters will list legitimate, well thought out posts about the concerns around him... The 30 some college carries and playing against little competition. I faded Henderson for the same reason. Him running over lower level competition wasn't impressive to me. I mean Gibsons size speed at Memphis is going to look much different in the NFL... While the believers have blinders on and will try and find anything to hype him up.
Maybe I'm just having a hard time buying the hype. I'd have AT LEAST 8 WR and 7 RB and Burrow in front of him so mid to late 2nd is fine to me, but I feel like he's going sooner than that everywhere now. Such little experience and being drafted to Washington is basically a death sentence to a career in itself for me so I guess I'll miss out on the next... CPatt.
literally. literally. the only knock is, "well I haven't seen him do it 200 times in a row." That's a horrible knock. SIZE. ATHLETICISM. DRAFT CAPITAL. OPPORTUNITY. USAGE. PRODUCTION.
I provided a list of ACTUAL comps (instead of the dozens of WRs listed) and you guys pointed out the others were 1st round picks as some sort of insult? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. Keep betting on those 24 year old WRs with 1 year of production and championing them as guaranteed year 1 producer locks. The arguments against are a complete joke. Please fix your process people
One of these things is not like the other....
Ronnie Brown 153/913/8
Antonio Gibson 33/363/4
I'll allow people to research the conferences and level of competition these guys played, too. A little homework...
Stop the nonsensical comparisons of a player who didn't play the position for any relevant amount of time to those who did, and produced at that position. Sticking him in the backfield for a few plays here and there doesn't make him an RB, that's why he wasn't listed at that position in college, so comparing him to those other players on a statistical threshold of receptions, when he was actually a receiver, not a running back, and trying to hold that as some sort of merit, is an inaccurate reach. It's a cherry picked statistical threshold to fit him in with a completely higher caliber of prospect.
