It’s rarely ever good when people synchronize an “OOOH” simultaneously at your expense. It’s a tough look to have a football ricochet off of your face at 20 mph when you’re looking to get paid to catch a football. It’s an even tougher look when your scouting report reads, “Struggles getting hands catch-ready when throws are on top of him” in the Weaknesses categories. I mean Lance Zierlein didn’t pull any punches on poor Mitch’s scouting report. Basically questioning the size of his manhood coming off the bat when he said has VERY small hands. Not just a couple of inches here or there. His hands look like Uncle Jack Kelly vs. the Lawyer in the Bird Law episode of Always Sunny. He’s uncoordinated, slug-footed, not strong enough, spotty hand placement, oversteps, and can’t bend properly for shit. Jesus Lance, Mitch has a family!
Also, this Wilcox kid is a sex pistol! The surfer hair like you’ve seen on a Tommy Bahama billboard. Strong jaw that would break Tyson Fury’s hand and a mug that shouldn’t be covered by a helmet. Gotta get those hands up Mitch. Rule #1: Protect the money maker at all costs!
USF TE Mitchell Wilcox admits his lack of targets and catches didn’t help his NFL draft status but he made the most of it. “A dip in production is never good for anyone.” #NFLCOMBINE. pic.twitter.com/9tHALCr1Ex
