They say he plays bigger than he is.....if that's the case, I'm sure 5'10 1/2 will work out just fine. Great hands and runs great routes, sounds good to me.

Santonio Holmes ..... What a gigantic pick.... he was by far the best overall WR in the draft.... PERIOD.


A skilled gamebreaker, who could help the special teams if needed... and most of all a WINNER who understands what it takes to be a champion.

I am so pumped about this pick

If the guy is as fast as they say he is, then I don't believe his height will hinder him one bit. There's no substitute for speed.

If he's fast and can jump like a jack rabbit I doubt he'll have too much trouble. Watch for this guy to do big things.

I bet he'll catch more deep balls that require jumping over a DB than Plexiglass will.
