So, I'm a self-confessed Sammie Stroughter fan. I promised myself after the Josh Freeman pick I despised that I would pick a selection that I liked and track his progress over the rookie season. The pick I made was Sammie Stroughter. Reasons and more past the jump.
In my short time playing football myself, I played almost exclusively at wide receiver. I've always thought like it since. I'm one of those snobs who says that wide receivers are always underrated in the draft, always underrated in the Heisman race, wide receivers aren't given enough exposure, etc. Thus, I've been tracking Sammie whenever and wherever I can. I must say, given some of his shadowy performances, he's been quite impressive. On the season, he has 16 catches for 214 yards. He has 6 kickoff returns, with a long of 97 yards (he scored on it). He has 3 punt returns for 29 yards. I'll be watching this rookie wideout from lowly Oregon State. What he could be is part of a Buccaneer return from the dead.
