That was the knock on him in the draft. That's why he lasted until the 5th round. It was also the reason that Hakeem Butler last until the 4th round.
This is who he is  
Ten Ton Hammer : 5/20/2019 8:33 pm : link
A college WR with the drops probably isn't going to learn to catch with pro coaching.
Man, Traina's account is thorough. She covers EVERYTHING.  
CT Charlie : 5/20/2019 10:00 pm : link
so I may not bother reading anyone else's stuff. One observation, though. She mentioned Jones's motion involving a bit of a windup or shoulder drop that took a split-second longer than necessary. As a result, she said, some of the passes were a tiny bit behind the receiver. I'm thinking it might not be the hitch but the pro speed of the receivers that's causing the slight delay.
Unbelievable what sells papers and clicks these days

Pat had a nice write-up.
What's new about this?

There have been complaints about newspaper headlines since Ralph Vacchiano was BBI Enemy #1 12 years ago.
Come on. What news do you expect?

Did you miss the part where Slayton was credited with two outstanding receptions before the tip drill INT?

To answer your question however, he WON'T stop throwing to Slayton because DS bobbles or drops a few...





If starting at Duke the past 3 years has taught him anything...

Honestly for me, any news that doesn't include "player Y carted off the field today with what is believed to be a season ending non contact [knee/chilles/back} injury" is just fine. Can't use "player X" anymore!!!

I love the reporting on the OTAs And I like interviews and some opinions on how the players are playing.
All of the op eds regarding the quarterback situation, In my view, Equate to needless drama.

There's not necessarily tension there. He may have felt Jones would be a perfect fit at 17 or later, but a reach at 6.

No. I did read, however, that Slayton caught one really nice pass from Jones...so he's got that going for him.

Exactly my thoughts. It's times like these when I hate the NY Media and their habit of creating controversy to sell clicks
