For years, I've been clamoring for a 2 receiver who, when covered, will use body control, shield, and go up and get the ball. Plaxico Burress is the easiest example of this, but Muhsin Muhammad, Larry Fitz (even though he's a 1), etc. fit the bill.
My question is, is that the way Julio plays? I didn't see a lot of him in college, and haven't been able to tell in preseason. I can tell that he has good speed and burst. I can tell that he can be very effective in YAC and on reverses. That's all pleasing. That also can be had with small, quick receivers.
So, my question is, can he be a great fade receiver? Can he be a guy who, when he's in single coverage, he's "open" because if you throw it to him, he'll adjust, high point and fight for the ball? If he is, I think he'll be a force, I just haven't seen it yet and wanted to ask those who've seen more of him. I know he's not going to have the reach of Plaxico, or the body control or hands of Fitz, but can he be that type? I know no one knows for sure, but you guys who saw him a ton in college likely know if he's that kind of guy or more a YAC guy.
Just curious. I hope the kid can use his size well...that would make him a matchup nightmare. We need him to be a jumpball winner.
