  • Why 6'1"+ is plenty tall enough for Crabtree.

    Something I have observed, freaky arm length.

    Kaepernick is this years pat white. Thin, gimmick offense and doesn't possess an nfl arm. The ncaa constantly regurgitates clones of past players and amazingly enough, tricks some people into thinking they're better than their cloned half. Kaepernick was a complete waste of a senior bowl qb spot. A better qb will come from the east/west shrine or whatever they're calling it now...count on it

      If you let certain people here tell the story, there is absolutely no explanation for his great production. It's not just the system. There have been tons of WRs in quirky systems that did not put up the surreal TD total he did, so he has to possess some incredible qualities, and arm length is one of them. His ability to read defenses, his ability to cut full speed and get to the open area, his ability to run with the ball and his heart are a few others (I know, I know, he doesn't run a fast 40 ). The record for TDs in a college career is 60- Crab would have broken that in three years.

        Defiantly a major asset for him. He plays a lot bigger than 6'1 for sure.

          He has a pretty decent vertical jump too....not that he'll get to prove that before the draft though.

            Having long arms doesn't do much when you're slow as molasses.











            Just messin. That's actually pretty interesting because before reading that I never noticed anything being particularly special about Crabtree, physically speaking. His height, speed, bulk, etc are all fine, but not special. Having arms that long seems like a major advantage.

            BTW, the fact that Calvin Johnson is both 6'5 AND has arms longer than everyone on that list but Crabtree is ridiculous. So not only does he tower over DB's, but he also has real long arms to increase his advantage. Lord help the NFL when he is in his prime.

                I noticed it the first time I saw him on TV.

                he was running a route and swinging his meathooks like a windmill, which formed a natural "forcefield" keeping the DB at length. He's one of those guys who when they are covered, they really aren't covered.
