Hill could run away from DBs. There is 5 years of tape on Camp not running away from anybody
Hill was drafted off measurables. His tape showed inconsistent hands and route running but he was fast at the combine and had the right body type. Most are saying the same will happen for Camp. IDK

FWIW, I would have never drafted Hill. I probably would take Camp late as a ST player and good locker room type player.

Yea, raw athletic ability got Hill drafted. He blew by corners in college and jumped over a few. He also smoked the combine in the 40 and vert. Can’t teach that kind of ability which is why someone rolled the dice on him (despite dropsies and off field issues). Camp isn’t that type of athlete, he didn’t outrun defenders in college and his biggest asset is strength, which isn’t necessarily essential at WR. His profile might fit a TE but he’s definitely short/light for that spot.

We’ll find out here in a couple of months.

The big difference between Hill and Camp is Hill did it at the combine. Hill had tape that got him a spot at the combine. Camp does not.

Yep. And a big difference between electronically timed 4.36 at the combine and Kelly Quinlan fat fingering “sub 4.5” via his stop watch app

Not sure how this contradicts anything, since I believe everyone has said Camp is a physical freak.
Some said he should be a TE and a few implied he is a marginal WR by NFL standards. This data point is strong evidence against that. Time will tell.

I do not believe Camp is or should be tried at TE, but strength at his level is more important for TE than WR, and while 6-2 is below standard for TE it is acceptable. Ask Jonnu Smith if a 6-2 TE can get paid. Also, high RAS is not an indicator of WR skill sets. It is a measure of athleticism.

I'd be happier if the entire right side of the graphic was measured instead of estimated.

Maybe Jalen Camp has just had some terrible luck with the offense conversion, turnover/inexperience at the QB position, considerable offensive line issues, and his own personal injuries over the last three years. I’m rooting for him to have a great professional career. I just wish he could of had a great collegiate career, too.

Definitely rooting for him, too. None of his problems were of his creation. I think a team will get a hard working gem.

I absolutely believe those are all huge factors in his (relative) lack of production in college. There is no way that any of us know what he is capable of, but he apparently has some tools.
