Quote from: the paw on January 22, 2022, 03:53:25 PMThe CFL just doesn't use tight ends as an integral part of the offence in the same way as the NFL. Kalic's blocking skills have more value in the run heavy style of game, and TEs with the combination of size and speed get more targets than they do up here on the wider field. Back in the 1970s, Kalinic might have been a 1000 yard receiver in the CFL.
Quote from: Blue In BC on January 22, 2022, 04:34:10 PMI understand but by any definition he's still a raw player and the NFL has players coming out of college every season to look at in their draft.
Quote from: the paw on January 22, 2022, 05:24:15 PMWell, he's less raw than all those new college recruits, he's had 2 years to learn how to be a pro and play against men. At the same time, he's still young enough and has great measureables, so they can expect him to continue to develop. While it seems incongruous on the surface, this signing is just another illustration that certain types of players are a better fit for one league than they other. Auclair is another example of a Canadian TE who has more value down there than he does here. A lack of CFL stats isn't the final determinant for a players prospects in the NFL.
