Default Joey Galloway doesn't think Clemson has the best WRs in the nation

From ESPN College Football Live

"I would go to Alabama. When you talk about Jeudy, Ruggs, Waddle. That receiving core has the ability to score from anywhere on the field. They are explosive. Tua again, just like Trevor Lawrence, you have a quarterback that can sling it out there. You'll see Trevor Lawrence does it, Tua does it. At times the guy is not there, but they throw it up because they believe their receiver can go make a play for them. So when I look at receiving core and the guys I would want to throw to I don't like all of these 6-4 guys all of the time."

Typical talking head generalizations.

So the former WR who played at 5-11 195 and his primary assert was his speed is biased towards the Alabama crew? I’m shocked.

The crazy thing is Tee and Justyn are just as fast as those guys but operate at 6-4. Also, I bet most QB would tell you they prefer the tall guys especially when you get in the red zone.

It’s funny, I seem to recall Alabama having issues getting into the end zone once they got near the goal line last year in a certain game. I bet in an honest moment, Tua would admit to wishing he had a big physical receiver to throw a fade to.

He might say Alabama, but he mentions Trevor in his explanation and they so it seems he is not committed to his original answer.

He must have had a visit from ESPN's SEC police....

Bama vs Clemson WR corp is probably far too close to definitively call. I think Bama overall is better through their top 4, but their top 4 is basically all they have right now. I think Clemson goes deeper, especially when Rodgers is healthy.

Many have said that this could be Clemson's best group of WRs. Do they say that Bama's is their best group also?

Let me know when Jeudy, Ruggs, and Waddle are considered OPEN even when they’re covered. Sure, they have the speed to exploit weaker coverage, but the championship game showed us who the best group is if we’re talking about needing a guy to make a play.

Jeudy maybe the most talented but the depth Clemson has is not comparable. They have 5-6 guys that would start other places.

Joey Galloway just being who he is. He loves to take an opposing view so he can spend a bunch of airtime listening to himself argue with rest of the guys on camera. I think in the past he’s gotten some of the other ESPN commentators downright angry with him.

He doesn’t like the 6’4” receivers because he was a short fast receiver who detonated what was left of the Cowboys 1990s locker room with a rediculous deal and very much unbridled tongue!
