everyone out there does NOT look like an AA in shorts. watch Trey or Aknin try to catch a ball and you will laugh.
I am just commenting on what i have seen firsthand and from what i have seen from last years practices. Ervin and Manuel have looked better than he looked all of last year. nothing against the kid just saying that these kids are looking good. much better hands i might add. and Manuel is shifty as hell.
and yes pads do make a slight difference, maybe for QBs and WRs, but not that much for RBs. you people who think these workouts dont show much because the kids are only in shorts and a t are wrong. pads add a different dimension yes but they are not THAT huge as you are making them. trust me, i've played and know...
