Default Jim Tressel on Santonio Holmes

http://www.ohio.com/mld/ohio/sports/14460201.htm

(Keep in mind, Tressel has Ted Ginn Jr. on his team)

Tressel thinks Holmes is better than most people think.
"I think Santonio is going to be very special,'' Tressel said this week.
"He's very physical, has worked hard to become a very good blocker. He really studies the game. He's got the quickest hands and feet of anybody I've ever coached. He's not 6-4 and 215, but he's got amazing explosion.''

Also of note:

-2 stopwatches had Holmes timed at 4.29 in the 40 at the combine (and he was sick with the flu)
-On his visits to NFL teams
"The main thing they want to know is how well can you read coverages, who's the key in blitz time, how to break off routes, how to be consistent and how to be on the same page with your quarterback,'' Holmes said.
"Since I started playing football (I prided myself) on how well I can learn coverages. I'm pretty sure a lot of people are impressed by it.''

Santonio was the player I wanted the most leading up the draft. Very happy the Steelers traded up to get this kid.

That's guy incredible. I love the speed factor he brings to the table. He also seems as though he can take a hit as well. Speed & toughness, he should fit in quite well.
