Also feel like you would be a big Nate Tice

I like Nate Tice; he’s been a huge fan of Gannon, Rallis, and Drew Petzing since I started listening to the Athletic Football Podcast last year.

It’s been a major moderating force for me on this coaching staff.

EDIT: I also like Harmon and Reception Perception quite a bit. Would look deeper at subscribing if money weren’t a little tight ATM.

Yes, the slot receiver position is well known for it's extensive list of 6' 2"+ receivers
You're trying to define a slot receiver as a fixed position, when it's absolutely not. Anyone can line up in the slot...the article I posted earlier points that out...and all of the guys they mentioned are taller, with the exception of Tyreek Hill.

True. Slot receiver truly depends on the offense that you run. Each one treats the position very differently.

I'm not, anyone can line up in the slot, which is a loose term for not the most outside receiver on any side but...

There are players that play most of their careers in the slot. Christian Kirk is predominantly a slot guy. Curtis Samuel, Amon Ra St Brown etc and going back guys like Cole Beasley, Edelman, Randall Cobb, Doug Baldwin, Jarvis Landry etc etc

Sure there are exceptions but let's not pretend it's not the norm that gifted but shorter receivers who struggle on the outside get pushed into the slot. It's very much 80/20 split height wise.

I'm sorry, but this post gave me a big laugh. And I mean it. Who else but a Cardinals fan, can see a draftee make an interception, and then complain because he ran like a DB and not a RB. You can't make this stuff up. :)
Yeah, it's funny! Duh.

I dunno. This board spend all last offseason bemoaning the signing of Froholdt and he was very solid for us.

On the flip side there have been plenty of camp superstars that did nothing on game days. Kei'Trel Clarke was a guy that was highlighted in cap last year for example.
I was skeptical but the pulling offensive scheme fit him perfectly. Didn’t see that coming.
