You know the big splash -- look they've made a pretty significant movement trading up but -- have a whole lot of sizzle to a but they drafted players. That fit and so often teams reach and draft players based off closes them but maybe if it isn't right. It doesn't fit into their scheme. You could see. Where they image shopping talk about it all time they have a vision for particular player how they see him fitting into their system and you could see it. With the selection that they clearly have a vision. There for all these players. As a good question from James in the world Owens will put them on right now you're on W that will James.

Three years from now I'll be shocked if he's not the special teams captain those things aside totally Thomas More Stan. Oh. Yeah I mean it's -- got out like that selects a lot.

You know to be I'm excited about it -- I am glad they don't speak. Brandon one of the things. That a -- you coach Mike Rollins this already said Mike you gotta watch this guy he's gonna pull this season and you shoot you had a great season. But you know 40% -- your catches last year one comeback routes. And wonder pink -- coach told me was headed. One thing good -- does very well is his work with the quarterback it always try to work back. -- try to get his quarterback out of trouble house on the rest with that. Part of your game you got great speed -- -- let us these mid tour Callaway type layup with better ability to work with your quarterback is a real student of the game. Yeah I mean that that's that's unlike him from a football America you know without a complete in bad throws that all of a repeat -- hear people say you know at quarterback all of a reality is most of our market in the wrong -- Now rather look at it I think with his press that can't you be reliable can't answer the bell. Every now and what I've noticed in to me. Is that it -- that's unbelievable. And everyone I've talked to buck up there. You never miss the game at any level and it that you look at that that you reliability we just talk about that. Are going to be able to play week in and week out. -- attributed -- you know hard part is staying out seemed a little things right they'll be able to play week in and get out and I had a pair hooked the mentality. -- elect them bring you -- -- that this is getting -- -- made -- -- you need -- Now Brad -- what is that like all of sudden. We look at right place right time. He dealt to play even a hall of being quarterback like Drew Brees and the reality to develop your skills. And that bottom line is if you got single garbage and you get over you know -- get the ball. You get back here is great you don't play like that that's part law he's becoming a better route jumpy period fact has seen extreme ability. Go to be Oakland quarterback right now I'm just giving the -- not a bread and put in the right place reflects well. Now I'll credit what about being -- three receiver. And now maybe what you asked to do club and that's the cars run block him. And as far as you know we do look good at that particular run they could be 78 yards and -- string of loose. Because your -- maybe it's a 3040 yard gain. Just talk about at the next level be effectively receiver. Do you acknowledge that also loved that being a road block all of the big part of being that. You know top receiver to be able to do that. I mean from my. Lost but I'm leaving the united. And that's -- I want I my my game then it is the run blocking to get better at that -- to work with that. Not that I could set up the past and I know Yamaguchi -- in the past here. Read your father we thank you -- a time what what would you say is your best streak coming to the NFL and in May -- one thing you -- do you feel like people have to work on -- cooperatively.

It. -- -- -- -- Are. Or they're just. Watched them late. And you shoot it well. Gotta put himself in a position he's gonna put yourself in the position to. Have to make the play at eight now. Other people have more athletic suspecting given their but his his intelligence where it's gonna put them in the right spot. Got up and watch Al. -- impact plays well. And culture and who shall. This. -- on the ball -- Them. Last year. And an. Police had some you're right Scott and he's had some. Nagging injuries really over his career here in the world isn't. He's been dust up as they get any of -- who plays through a lot of a lot of those injuries and has never used them as a an excuse in terms of a drop off and not drop off the -- but I thought he came on strong towards the end of the season last year. You know certainly at the worry about. You know age. At some point it's gonna become a factor but. I still think he's got things left -- them. And you know he'll be productive this year I don't know the terms of the exact injury status on him at that I was you stand right here. On in day you know before we get the training camp on May eleventh here I don't know the exact injury status on Marques Colston but you know I think it's something that. They'll pay attention to you know come Montero would be surprised if just -- time -- time he it's a couple of days of rest during training camp you know are -- at least that the rats are our cut down for him. You don't need to put him through. Training camp like you would maybe a rookie that -- -- that needs every rep and Marcus -- that as a and established veterans though the record the ref might be cut down just kind of elements of that where it there on Marcus Colston. If that helps answer your question. We -- vote or merit there's a -- -- still not only injury. You go out. Are still backing. Gordon trying to air or. I'm eager to be out of the players are pretty tight lipped on and so the team on. On injuries in terms of you know -- -- like talk about -- Because -- wouldn't want my opponents that though.
