Well for one he's been in the league four years now, hardly call that a shiny different thing when Julio and AJ Green are in nearly every WR ranking you see in their 2nd years. If you don't think he's any good as a WR or player that's fine, but not sure if serious but you just end up sounding like a 14 year old angry Bears fan. But yea, instead let's completely ignore how good of a player he is and instead use extreme hyperbole even when it's used incorrectly.

I just look at that as a player style, but you can be an elite WR without living in the air. Calvin, Fitz, Julio, those guys use their height to their advantage, but there have always been elite WR's in the NFL without that trait. But at the same time, he's 5'11 with a 40 inch vertical. It's not like he can't get up there if he needs to.
