I would not say last year with Collin Johnson being physical or getting jump balls was a problem.  I would say he needs to improve his speed, YAC ability and conditioning along with route running.  He can go get jump balls and make impressive acrobatic catches I feel already.   

I don’t think Collin Johnson is slow. He’s got vertical wheels but isn’t quick. But he can run past DBs running vertically just fine IMO. I really like him.

I'm going to pay close attention to Collin this year. All I want to see him do is get more physical with DBs. He positions his body well in Jump ball situations. 

I get this. At his size, he plays a little soft. If he learns to consistently bully guys his stock will soar. 

He reminds me right now of a skinny Devin Funchess. Okay speed with a solid get off. Decent foot quickness for a long limbed guy. Can make acrobat catches.

But his physicality doesn't match his physical make up.

Why?  I feel Kendal Briles is very similar offense to Holgorsen.  Both air rad type offenses with zone read action, Kendal learned from his dad Art who ran a similar system to Dana Holgorsen.  Art Briles was the RB coach at Texas Tech under Mike Leach and Dana Holgorsen was the WR coach at Texas Tech at that same time and both have similar offenses to Mike Leach when they become head coaches.  Heck Dana Holgorsen was the Houston OC/QB coach after Art Briles left and went to Baylor to be the head coach.    So to say Marquez Stevenson is legit when he plays in a similar offense not sure that is the case.

 

In terms of Marquez Stevenson the kid has great quicks, great change of direction and big time burst for a WR.  Is small but in the slot that is not a big deal, is great after the catch and knows how to run with the football and make defenders miss.  If he has another season like he did last year could easily come out early as a RS JR WR and be a mid round pick or higher if he runs well.  Would be nice to see him do some more in the return game that would make him even more valuable as a prospect.
