Lance has a bit of Lelie and Watts in him. He is rail thin and really tall and has very good speed. He was pretty damn good for a true freshman, esp on deep balls. He's similar to Watts in the respect that he's a guy that has a natural feel for finding the windows in the zone and also because he does a good job of getting YAC with moves and stuff. He bulked up a little in the spring to handle the pounding more but as Bronco LB 52 says he suffered an injury, its a milder form of the Lis Franc that Ty Law has. It did not require surgery and Lance says he is running routes now and feeling good but isnt quite 100 percent yet. He feels good about returning for the start of the team's training camp however some insiders are a little less optimistic. We will see. It would be a big blow if he isnt in the lineup. But long term, i think Lance easily can be a first round draft pick in 2 years. Bulks up a little. Learns the nuances of the game better. More experience. He can be a very high pick indeed.
It would probably elevate Sinorice Moss (Santana's little brother) to the starting lineup who probably is not starting caliber but can be better used as a slot WR. He is similar to Roscoe Parrish but i dont think he is starting caliber. I always grimace a little when
I see Sinorice out there. Its no fault of his but Miami had 1 scholarship remaining back in the day. It was either going to go to Sinorice Moss or Ohio State's star wideout Santonio Holmes. Both of them were locks to accept the offer as Miami was Holmes no. 1 school as well. Unfortuneatly, we went with Sinorice. He is a decent WR, but obviously no Santonio Holmes who may very well be a first round draft pick this year and if he was a bit taller, prolly much more than that.
A guy with alot of potential who has never realized it that also could make some noise if Leggett cannot play is Akieem Jolla. He has all the talent in the world. Great speed, great size, great build, but his head just isnt on straight. What a monumental waste of talent. I hope he figures out his time is almost up and gets in gear.
