    Yup, let's see what he brings this year. I like the WR group. Just add a true vertical threat and let them compete.

    Can Harris be the #2? that is my question....Miles can't seem to keep his hammies stretched out so if/when Austin goes down, can Harris carry the #2 load?

    Beasley is a good enough slot guy and has earned a look this year...I still can see Coale pushing him back and the competition might be a good thing...time will tell....

    ...I can also see Hanna getting more snaps when they send out two TE's in passing plays....he could essentially be a slot guy...

    Beasley will get some snaps as will Harris. My guess would be they can both run certain routes better than the other. But the proof is in the pudding. Whoever makes the most plays will begin to get the most snaps. Harris will go into camp as the 3 but he will have to earn it.

    There's always a player or two to surprise in camp at some position. Perhaps one is not yet on the team. It's too early to make any bets. I do suspect Beasley will make the team barring injury.

    There are people who want to use a 1st round pick on 5-8 174 Tavon Austin and yet Cole Beasley is too small? I would never want to gamble a high pick on a tiny guy but if you can get one as a udfa and they show they can play then play them.

    Yeah, I see your point. Austin ran a 4.3 40 at this years combine while Beasley ran a 4.5 at his pro day last year. Austin is fast and quick while Beasley is quick but not very fast. Austin is the obvious superior athlete.

    We already had the "real" Amendola and we didn't keep him and use him so what does that say?:D

    I don't see Harris as a slot guy. To me, he seems more of an outside deep threat. You can move Austin into the slot and play Harris outside, but I think Beasley is a squirmier little slot type.

    I love Harris. I am curious as to whether he can succeed on the outside at all.

    He is 5'10" 200 lbs but his arms are kinda short. I wonder how well he can beat the press.

    Harris is a slot guy.

    He did line up a lot on the outside this season and that helps his overall value top have versatilty. No doubt, they can play himon th eoutside when needed...some fohis better pays this year came when lined up out there. But his speed is average and he's not really a deep threat.

    I still say he reminds me of Hines Ward at times.

    I think Harris will get his shot this upcoming season. I'm hoing he'll be good enough to be able to fill in at the 2 in Dez or Austin go down for some games.

    I'm also curious to see if Danny Coale can show anything.

    He made catch after catch in team drills from Tony, Kyle and Stephen on 3rd down.

    Wes Welker an Danny Amendola both had 0 catches their first year in the NFL, so Beasley is ahead of the pace.

    It takes time for most wide receivers to adjust to the NFL. It took Welker and Amendola time and it will take Beasley time. Just saying they should use Beasley more doesn't mean Beasley is ready to be used more. Heck, the guy was ready to quit football before training camp last season. It is a wonder he even caught one pass last season.

    I'm not too worried about his little training camp breakdown. I don't expect 21 year olds to be fully developed mentally or physically.

    this. there was a family issue, IIRC. the coaches supported him, he came back and played his heart out, it's over.

    sheesh, you'd think he was showing up at the mall with his pants too low or something.

    can we worry about real problems for a change?

    Waliking out on the team is not as killing someone while driving drunk by any means..not remotely close.. But it is. HUGE. Yes, you move on but lets not trivialize how bad being a quitter is in team sports

    He didn't quit during a game or even during a practice. He left after practice and came back 2 days later and didn't miss a beat.
