Bold Prediction Roberts and Swope fight for the 3rd reciever spot

Andre Roberts

Height: 5'11"

WT: 195lbs

Arm Length: 31 1/2"

Hand size: 9 1/2"

40yd-dash: 4.46 sec

Vertical Leap: 36"

Drafted: 2010 3rd Rnd, 88th overall

Summary: Andre Roberts has the all the tools necessary despite his size to to be successful for years to come. He has given us a good show here in Arizona and would not mind seeing him add to the big numbers he put up for us last year coming out of the slot ( 64 receptions, 759 yards and 5TD's), the only problem is is this enough to keep him around? I say yes. Roberts is very elusive as soon as he gets the ball into his hands and has a nice burst off the line once the ball is snapped. One would have to Ponder what his career might look like under the regime and especially with Palmer under center.

Ryan Swope

Height: 6' 0"

WT: 205 lbs

Arm Length: 31 3/8"

Hand Size: 8 1/2"

40yd-dash: 4.34 sec.

Vertical Leap: 37"

Drafted: 2013 6th Rnd, 174th overall

Summary: Swope is probably a head banger for most going why, did Arizona draft him when, their is enough talent at the reliever position. Ryan Swope was one of the most reliable slot receivers in college football, that is why. He needs to play at the speed he is capable of, I think the training staff along with John Lott will whip him into shape and take care of that problem. Critics cry injury prone, name a game he has missed due to injury. The concussions were nothing serious and were very minor from what I can dig up. The reason he got them is probably form his style of Play he is a big slot receiver that can play very Boldinesq for Arizona which has been missed and not afraid to jump up and get the ball. They take about QB's making all the throws well this is a receiver that can make all the catches and is not afraid to stretch his body out their to come up with the ball.

Over All:

This is gonna be the duel in the desert Roberts with all the experience, and Swope wanting to prove himself. I look forward to watching the magic on the field this year. This will be a hard fought battle, but thinking scheme and the new head coach Bruce Arians, I give the edge to Ryan Swope he will be the starting slot receiver and Roberts the 4th receiver on the roster if we don't sign Josh Cribbs, otherwise Roberts I fear will be trade bait next season. Who knows lets wait and see what happens one thing for sure is that this will be epic to watch. These players are evenly matched some what with few exceptions and that is what keeps it interesting. What are your thoughts?
