Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room takes another look at Liberty wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden and shows two examples of this NFL Draft prospect being a hoss in the open field.
Antonio Gandy-Golden plays to every inch of his (approximate) 6’4″, 220-pound dimensions—and then some. We won’t see it on full display in Mobile, Alabama for the Senior Bowl, but Gandy-Golden is a hoss.
He’ll overpower weaker corners off the lin, box-out lesser coverage players at the catch point, and woe be onto you if you’re not prepared to bring technique, body, and soul into tackling this receiver. In a rich draft class of receivers, Gandy-Golden deserves more admiration.
If Gandy-Golden were in the class that sported the big receivers who earned a lot of pub but few earned the draft-day love (Allen Lazard, Courtland Sutton, and Equanimeous St. Brown to name a few), Gandy Golden would have easily been my favorite.
As long as he displays the skill to learn offenses and translate the classroom to the playing field, I have no doubt that he’ll not only physically match his competition, but he’ll often pose a weekly mismatch advantage.
