Skill beyond his years

Post by SectionBAggie » September 1st, 2016, 10:21 pm

I didn't get to the first half (elderly mother issues) but saw the second. One of the significant plays in the half was LaJuan Hunt's TD. It was a nice run on his part but if you watch closely you see that one of the WRs made and held the block the put him in the end zone. That kind of blocking by a WR is significant in the success of running around the end. And the WR that made that block and held it a long time - true freshman Rayshad Lewis. Kid seems to be a well developed package.

Ya know, you'd think maybe he had some help from arguably the best football player of my generation..nah

Lewis is much better than Jojo as a freshman already. I think he's going to be a weapon this year. Plays with so much confidence.

Rayshad is going to make us all forget Jojo Natson this year and going forward

Interesting that they have the same number.

They are very different football players in my eyes. Rayshad is much more Stanley Morrison than Bruce Natson, IMO.

Oooo... good call. Rayshad is way more aggressive in traffic than Natson ever was, especially as a freshman. I wonder if his fearless nature will stick after he gets his bell rung a couple of times.

The first two plays from scrimmage had very similar WR downfield blocking.
Myers' keeper on 1st down, #17 had his DB locked up at the 20 (15 yards downfield) on the sideline and he didn't touch the play.
Mays TD also had #17 keeping the DB tied up until Mays was inside the 5, he was able to hit Mays but it was really only contact before Mays bounced off and scored.

I think the WR's did great downfield

That would be Van Lue no? I saw on multiple replays that the receivers were doing a great job blocking downfield. We didn't always see that last year.

After that score Bouknight pulled Rayshad aside and was in my opinion telling him your exact thoughts. You could tell the conversation was about the block he made.

Yep 17 is Zach Van Leeuwen, a very solid possession and blocking receiver just like Travis

I've said it before on this board. Blocking is the most underrated aspect of a WRs job and one of the most important but unheralded tasks in all of football.

I don't know if Hines Ward has the same career if it weren't for his blocking skills. I think largely because of it, he very well can be put into the hall in the next few years.
