Strengths: Big frame with solid bulk and long arms ... Not a freak athlete, but he has adequate athleticism to be a playmaker ... Consistent production statistically ... Tough player who knows how to get off the line of scrimmage ... Runs sharp routes ... Rarely drops passes ... Excellent on the fade route in the red zone ... Can adjust to the ball in the air ... Times jumps well ... Catches the ball away from his body ... Good speed after the catch ... Gives effort as a blocker ... Beat double teams often in junior season ... Does not go down easily after first hit ... Versatile as a solid deep threat, but can also make plays on screens.
Weaknesses: Does not have a second gear to beat safeties deep ... Often shows great ability on route running, but does not give a great effort as much as you would want him to ... Timed speed will go under microscope.
Summary: Britt is the prototypical possession receiver for a West Coast offense, but it will remain to be seen if scouts think he can be a No. 1 receiver. I think his route running and hands will lead him to be a solid receiver in this league. Ultimately, I have a first-round grade on him because he is so well-rounded, but I am not sure if he will actually go in the first round.
Player Comparison: Dwayne Bowe. Britt is slightly less athletic than Bowe, but both boast skill sets with minimal weaknesses. Both are elite threats in the red zone with their size and ability.
Walter your inability to bet the Patriots all year with Brady on the team is inexplicable. Yes, since Brady came back from suspension, you bet the Patriots 0 times, even though they covered as decent and often huge favorites. Why? Why are you more afraid than Goodell is to show up at Foxborough to bet on a great team to beat inferior oponents by a large margin? You lost out on a lot of money. As for the Patriots defense who will be "overwhelmed" by Pittsburgh hahaha, the Patriots defense has stepped up when it needed to. Logan Ryan who is not even the best DB let alone CB on the team just had a dominant game covering one of the best wide receivers in the league. And you're going to say that Brady can't go stride for stride against Big Ben who, with his 0 TD performance last Sunday, once again proved that he has turned into an awful road playoff QB? You know what 0 TDs will win you in the AFC Championship game? I don't believe that betting on Pitt getting 6 points is a bad decision - seeing as I may do the same. But to predict the Patriots to straight up lose is laughable. The advantage they have on defense and coaching is pretty big and they may even be even offensively solely because Brady has been using Edelman more and more and Dion Lewis's return has shown to be very important.
