    He looks a little big for the slot i think we line up. Marshall, Gaffney, Royal to start he season but dont be shocked if Mckinnley or Swift becomes the number 2 as a good do it all WR. let Marshall do the big plays. Let Royal work the slot and if you double cover Marshall or Royal then Swift and Mckinnley will kill defenses.:go:

    Maybe youth will prevail

    McD is a type who likes to develop his own team. Maybe youth will be a key to keeping raw talent verses so-so aged talent?

    I think he's got a good chance at making the practice squad...but it's a big uphill battle to make the 53 man..the numbers just are not in his favor.


    1. Brandon Marshall
    2. Eddie Royal
    3. Brandon Stokely
    4. Jabar Gaffney
    5. Brandon Lloyd
    6. Kenny McKinley
    7. Chad Jackson
    8. ???


    He's gonna be to get to #6 to make the roster...


    On a side note...did you know that even though this will be his 4th NFL season, Chad Jackson is only 5 months older than Swift?

    While I agree with many of you that he seems to have good hands and that he is very good at tucking the ball away, there was one major negative thing that really stuck out to me in the video: his route running. While most of the clips focused on the QB for most of the play, and as such didn't show him running his route, the times when you can see him running his routes they aren't very crisp. He really rounds out his turns, which means that he won't get separation in the NFL. I think he could be a practice squad candidate, but I don't see him making the 53 man roster unless his route running drastically improves or we end up trading Marshall (and even then I'm still not sure he can beat out either CJ Jones or Brandon Lloyd).

    I think with some time on the practice squad learning to run crisp routes he can develop into an above average receiver in the league.

    There's been a couple threads about him so he's not being overlooked on the boards at least, and the coaches are of course giving him a good looking over. That 53 man roster will seem pretty small before long though, I just don't know if there's room for him or not.

    I've watched him play, and I've noticed he catches the ball with his body. Which is typical for a slot guy. But not for a #1 or 2.

    marshall has this annoying way of sometimes one handing the ball and being careless which has resulted in his fair share of fumbles
    The highlights looked good to me. I saw quite a number of good catches with his hands, but he does tuck the ball away quickly. That might be mistaken for a body catch.

    He's got good size, and looks like he'd definitely be a decent possession or slot guy. I hope he at least finds his way onto the practice squad.

    That is exactly what I was gonna say, he does remind one of Eddie Mac, he is tough. And he can return PUNTS too! I say he makes the team as a backup, and Special teamer.

    He has good size at 6'2 200lbs and seems to be a hard worker. Also has the ability to help in the return game which increases his value. I think he'll push for a roster spot, but will at least make the practice squad.

    The reason I say WE as fans are overlooking him is beacuase I have not heard much about him. We are over loaded at WR. However, I am so sick of Brandon Marshall being onthis team and inthe locker room spreading his ignorant rhetoric and being a bad influence is something that makes me sick.

    What makes me more sick is this <word we cannot say> is collecting a check and playing with everyone. He has court date coming up for his 4th arrest and 13th incident with cops in 3 different cities with two different women. Hey....can we call a spade a spade? No? He already told cops on bust in 07 that he hates the Fing city.

    Then when it is time for him to play for his contract and really mind his Ps and Qs he pulls this...I am not being treated fairly BS.

    At this point I will take a 4th round pick in 2017 for him. Get him outta here.

    I would take Nate Swift over that guy......any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Answered my own question

    QB was Joe Ganz. He signed with the Redskins.

    The Husker QB?

    The QB in the video impressed me, looked like he had great pocket presence. His arm wasn't to shabby either? Who was that? Was that his senior year?

    I liked Nate Swift's highlights and stats, I don't think we are overlooking him. He lasted until training camp, he will get a shot. But we are overloaded at WR, especially if Marshall stays around.

    Marshall, Royal, Stokley, Gaffney, Lloyd and Jackson are the veterans on the team that I can call off the top of my head. Kenny is going to make the team as a rookie, and I'm almost certain one of those players above -- moreso the latter of the list will be the ones losing their spot as a consequence. I don't know if Nate comes in right away and gets a legitimate roster spot; but I think he can find a home on the practice squad.

    If something happens with Marshall, it'd certainly help him -- or the "surprise" cut of Stokley (as some have professed to believe by camps end) -- it'd make more room for him too. With that stated, he'll have a hard time making it with who we have now, IMHO.
