Brice Butler start had allot of good and little bad
Brice Butler played in the first preseason game and he had down moments, then he had some very positive moments.
Butler had only 41 catches for a total of 554 yards and 3 TD’s while he was at USC, and at San Diego State he had 24 catches for a total of 347 yards and 4 TD’s.
Brice Butler didn’t put up huge numbers in college so that is why he dropped down to the 7th round in the NFL draft allot like teammate Rod Streater.
However, size is about the only thing these two guys have in common both being 6’3″ tall.
Unlike Rod Streater, Butler has homerun capabilities, and according to San Diego State he ran a 4.36 40 time even though he was listed as running 4.5 40 time.
He caught a forty yard crossing route pass from Matt McGloin, and finished that drive with a spectacular touchdown catch in last Friday’s game vs Dallas that was also the only TD for the Oakland Raiders that game.
Also he had a block that helped spring Terrelle Pryor on a 17 yard run.
Really the only bad plays he had was couple drops, and he ran a bad route which McGloin was clearly telling him the play was a back shoulder throw.
Brice Butler will only be getting better in route running as the preseason and season goes on, plus he worked a little with all three QB’s so no matter who’s starting he’ll kind of know there tendencies.
The Raiders do not have a clear cut number WR, so Butler has room to climb up the depth chart in Oakland.
Brice has a huge shot of being a sleeper pick in this past NFL draft.
With still three preseason games to go Brice Butler can show to Raiders coaches he should be getting playing time this season.
