    Givins maybe. Similar size, similar quickness, both good route runners. I think Givins might have been a little stronger and could maybe take a hit a little better, but I guess we’ll see. I love Tank, but have my doubts that he’s going to make it 10 seasons like Givins did. That was a miracle.

    Clicked on the tweet, all the comments are about how this guy just says “every rookie is a steal and amazing” so I went back and looked and sure enough, he’s praising everyone. Even has a Stroud post about him impressing everyone. Has one for a bunch of other rookies including Bryce young, Zay flowers, Quentin Johnston, Anthony Richardson… etc.

    Then you get to his post about Levis and it’s “had a rough day, showing bad footwork and inaccuracies” lol it’s literally his only negative post. Amongst a million positive ones…

    Texans analyst John Harris is like this too. Every training camp, he praises the rookies. Every rookie is a draft day steal or a hidden gem and the team is full of future pro bowlers.

    Brock Osweiler is the only player he wasn’t positive about lol.

    I like Stoerner on 610. Has always been pretty critical of guys.

    He was very high on Tank Dell and CJ Stroud.

    I'll never forget the hit Givins took from Mike Singletary in Chicago. I never seen anyone get laid out on the field. He caught the TD but he was knocked out!

    Dude was a straight BALLER

    Thought homie was like 11 years old when I saw him interview an Astro last month, he shows up with a beard in this one.
    What I like about the interview is how considerate Dell is and gives full answers.

    I believe he has muscular dystrophy and that he’s around 20. Dude always come prepared with great questions and that lead to insightful answers. Respect

    I thought he was in the Bryce Young camp. Wasn’t necessarily high on Stroud. Critical of him I would say if I remember correctly

    He was early on in the draft and changed tune to both guys after watching more tape.
    Then after seeing him in person he liked what he saw more so.

    I don't know if I heard him correctly at the end, but what my ears heard him say was "That's cheesecake!" and now I'm in love with the idea of using cheesecake as a praise term for a good football player.

    So if that's not what he said I don't want to know about it.

    I could be wrong as well but I heard “that’s teach tape” as in what the camera just captured should be shown to WRs to show how to do it. But I also have no idea what he did that was so awesome.. I’m pretty uneducated in that regard haha. I like cheesecake too tho!

    That was a miracle. Givens took a licking and kept on ticking year after year. The fab 4 were my all-time favorite group of Houston wide receivers.
