I've accepted the fact that he won't contribute much this season. Very much on the Gabe Davis timeline. Gabe looked great in his rookie preseason too, but there is a ton to learn before McD and co. can count on you for significant snaps.

 

Davis put up almost 600 yards as a rookie and led the team in TD catches with 7.  Are you sure you aren't thinking of someone else?

No, you're right. I just mean Khalil Shakir was never going to come in and be the man, even though he looked great in preseason. It takes time to ramp up. His ascension, like Gabe's, should ve very gradual, if it happens. I wouldn't be surprised to see Shakir get more consistent playing time after mid-season.

Oh yeah, for sure...Shakir kinda has the best of both worlds tho...he gets to come along slowly on a team that is already stacked with talent and learn from Diggs, Davis, Crowder and McKenzie on how to be a pro and learn all of the nuances of playing WR in the NFL.

Ah, I see. Your earlier statement seemed bizarre, but with clarification makes perfect sense.

 

Very much agreed that he's likely to get much more time as the year moves around. I think after mid-season makes sense. That's the way it tends to go under McDermott for rookies, with occasional exceptions.
