    It’s too early to say I told you so, but I said a number of times he has a bad physique (saddle bags). I would wager he’s going to struggle keeping off weight throughout his career. That’s not to say he can’t/won’t dedicate himself to being better conditioned but it was a red flag to me.

    I said multiple times he’s built like Roy Williams (SS) of WR’s. Not a compliment.

    This reminds me of last preseason when Ja'Marr Chase was dropping balls in camp. People were raising red flags about "he's out of shape after a year off", but 6 months later, he was smoking Jalen Ramsey in the Super Bowl.

    It's true that Burks couldn't carry Chase's pads as a prospect, but offseason camps are a small sample size to look at.

    Nobody blamed Chase’s drops during preseason on his conditioning; this is apples-to-oranges.

    They should have been concerned when they drafted him

    So he’s out of shape and can’t run routes?

    Glad we dodged that bullet.

    His 4.4 forty and absolutely gigantic catch radius says he'll be a good player. Also an excellent ball tracker.

    What's the lool for?

    Don't know where they got it from, but he was listed as a 4.44 guy precombine. Plus, his long speed is excellent. Might want to rethink your "lool". Seems pretty silly.

    I’ve rethought my “lol.”

    Now I’m luuuulzing because you’re doubling down on a precombine time.

    He ran an official 4.55 at the Combine.

    I ran a 3.89 precombine.
