Istg. I did the same thing. He seems like he understands the tree. And how to set up defenders. Take 100%I definitely let out an "oh shit" at the same time as the person on the video did on that 1st route....Sign this kid up right now and let Balis get his hands on him.
When I saw your post I was thinking, "I really liked him but that seems a bit too sour grapes" but I agree with the general sentiment that this kid looks really, really good. He looks like he has acceleration and a really good knowledge of running routes and using his body to sell the moves.I was wondering if I was just too drunk when I said I preferred him to Hanafin. So I rewatched the film.
And....nope. Stand by it 100%.
Lyons looks flat out like the better receiver. Hanafin is bigger bodied, but Lyons is faster and has that initial burst. Dude can stop and go extremely well and almost effortlessly. He's also got good size at 6'2 and looks to have long arms so he can go up and get those contested balls.
