No thanks. In one of my rare draft prognostiction moments, I remember him being my pick for first round bust that year. Pretty close.
Just not a good fit for us. Can he block? I'm guessing no, and at his age he probably wouldn't be too interested in learning.
I'd rather take our chances with the young guys. If nothing else, they'll get experience.
Well, I would have rather had Galloway, who is fast and
can catch the ball. But I see this as a hedge: If Wallace isn't a starter right away, you get someone who's got his basic skill set to try out gameplans with
I think it's a long-ish shot he signs, and even longer he plays here more than a year.
In the draft, I had Mike Thomas of Arizona a bit ahead of Wallace. He had better receiving skills, looked plug-in ready at slot, excellent speed as well, but much, much smaller. Wallace may be somebody who can learn the slot, but he looks like a SE to me. Guess I was enamored of the Welker-type slot guy, but that ain't Wallace or Lelie.
Still, on a one-year bid, I'd consider rolling the dice for a field-stretching WR. Chances are if Wallace is at all competent Lelie doesn't make final cut anyway.
