    Yeah, but there’s some strange expectations for a kid that’s never played a snap. If he doesn’t immediately meet those expectations, by week 3 people are going to be screaming bust!

    If Tolbert has careers like any of above mentioned our draft is a home run

    Not even close. You might want to read some scouting reports to avoid terrible comparisons such as this one.

    Twill was a body catcher. Tolbert has a wide catch radius w/ very strong hands to "win above the rim". TWill had none of these traits.

    Tolbert is most likely more of a high quality #2 type. Which is absolutely outstanding for a 3rd round pick.

    Tolbert's style of play kind of makes him a plug and play guy. He wasn't the tallest, or fastest, or quickest..

    It's the things he knew at his level of play that looked like they would translate well to the NFL, it was sort of those things, that make him draftable.

    WR guys don't seem to need to develop quite as much as other positions, it seems like. But I do get your point here. The expectations for him are really high.

    We'll see how it goes. If he doesn't produce, I'm sure it won't take much time to sit him down in place of someone else. I think most of the reason people think he'll play well for us is because he really was being talked about as a 2nd round pick. Not just by the Cowboys, but by others as well. Yet, he fell all the way to the 3rd.

    Cowboys lucking in to falling players has been a trend the last few years. Last year was FatBoss so lucking out kinda diminishes their picks. There is also a patience experience IMO

    I believe Tolbert has a very high floor. It's highly unlikely that he won't turn out to be one of our 3 best WR's. This kid is simply a football player.

    Hopefully he's his own player, why does he have to be like another one?

    He'll do what he can do with his physical talents and what coaching and competition he gets....

    And, BTW, Tolbert and Lamb are similar players.

    Pro coaches and scouts compare prospects to current and former players all the time. Parcells once said “if he doesn’t remind you of someone you used to coach you’re probably drafting the wrong guy.” McCarthy said after taking Waletzko that he reminded him of a tackle he used to have in KC.

    Tolbert's game also reminds me a bit of Courtland Sutton.

    Don't see the fun in it.

    And I didn't say it bothered me, I just asked a question and stated my opinion.

    Per usual.

    It's to the point of getting boring.
