I wonder what went wrong with him at App? I don't know but we are seeing the potential there. He entered his senior year as a possible late round pick and ended up being skipped over by all the major all-star games and then being snubbed on draft day. He is now showing he should have been a lethal weapon for us.

Hmmm, we had 3 WRs that were great college players in their own right. Congrats to Virgil.

It is a perfect example of wasted talent by our staff. I know we had some good receivers, but his ability was underutilized by us. Much like we have done with Cam this year.

Did he block as expected while at App? When we had our run game clicking wasn't blocking by receivers a huge expectation? Seems like that was mentioned on many occasions over the last few years. When we were winning consistently nobody said a word about him not getting more chances- only now that he made a pro team.

Virg never seemed fully healthy, his hips are stiff and his ball skills weren't up there with Sutt/Henni/Malik. His down hill speed made up for a lot of things and he was a great teammate by all accounts. NFL will maximize on your best asset, and Virgs can't be taught- raw speed.

Other than CB7, what QB have we had while Virgil was here had the ability to throw deep consistently?

Cam has been injury prone it seems. Hard to depend on a player who constantly fights injuries.

Same reason Stroman isn’t our #1 perhaps?

Virg should be inline to start this weekend, no?
Two #1 WR out and another #2 as questionable.

There are some poor takes here. Virgil was the tallest and fastest, but as far as route runners Sutton and Henne were better and Malik played a different WR position.

The real “issue” was the WR room was STACKED.
