    I think Press Pass looks pretty good this year.Its a basic look but sometimes basic is better than overdoing it. Its always nice to have Andrew Luck exclusively in this product before the Licensing ones come out.As for my top Prospect im going to have to say Quinton Coples.Ive watched him the past 4 years and he is just such a big dude thats hard to block with one person.Most I know will say RGIII as he is a great player but other than the 2 obvious ones in Luck and RGIII, I really like Coples!Next great UNC defensive end!

    I love the look of the cards. the price seems to be decent for what you get. The parallels seem to be spread at a good ratio. I would love a box of these:) My top prospect pic is Robert Griffin III. I think he will go far as a QB in this league.

    I love this 2012 Press Pass football! I think it is going to be better than last year’s, and I can’t wait to open a few packs! My top prospect, would have to be either Robert Griffin III, or Justin Blackmon, because of how they can change the game, at any given point, and how dynamic they can be on offense.

    I think that Press Pass looks like a good product this year. It has some nice looking cards and some nice players in it. I have to say that Quinton Coples is the best other than Andrew Luck.

    Love the new press pass! My favorite prospect in this product would have to be RG3! I know, pretty predictable, but how can you go wrong with RG3! Thanks, you guys are great!

    2012 Press Pass is going to be hot right out of the gate since they will be the only ones with Andrew Luck autos for about a month. The cards have a nice clean design and I like that it is not cluttered with multiple inserts with the same players over and over again. My top prospect is Justin Blackmon. He’s going to be a beast in the NFL.

  7. Posted March 15, 2012 at 7:01 pm | Permalink

    These look nice! I like the horizontal photos on them. I think it will make the autos better by the players being able to stretch their signature out if the need too.
    As a NASCAR fan also Im a big fan of Press Pass overall. I love how their costumer service department is quick and always willing to help unlike some of the “bigger” companies.
    A lot of collectors shy away because they are a “low end” product but I feel they should be at the top… No waiting 8 months on redemption’s or waiting forever to get a question answered.
    As far as the top prospect, I believe it is Justin Blackmon. This kid is a beast and will help ANY team he goes to which will probably be the Rams. And if so this kid is gonna make Bradford look like the star he was meant to be…

    Looks like a very good set. I like the overall look of the cards despite not having the team liscense. As far as my top prospect, other than Luck and RGIII, would have to be either Lindley or Ronnie Harmon. These are to great players that do not get the press that some of the other players do. They may not go in the 1st round but they will be very solid for years to come.

    I think Press Pass looks really good this year, much better looking cards than last year’s, plus they are the only pre-draft company with Luck which puts them on a platform above Leaf as well as SAGE. I think the prospect to look out for this year is Russell Wilson. As a prospect, he is most likely a long-term guy that could pay big dividends to a team down the line. He’s the second fastest QB on the board and he has much better accuracy than RGIII or even Tannehill or Osweiler. Probably won’t go until the the 4th round (at the earliest) because of his size, but whatever team gets him is going to get him as a steal. He reminds me of a smaller version of Aaron Rodgers, really smart guy with amazing athletic ability that is a proven leader and winner.

    2012 Press Pass looks sick, the base cards are great looking. The pics in my opinion look better with no logos at this stage in their career because they don’t have and NFL team yet and they no longer attend their collage. My Top prospects are RGIII and Michael Floyd from Notre Dame who i have followed for a few years now. Thank you for reading this and keep posting the great videos.

    Press pass 2012 football this year i think is alot more organized than last year, which i like because it is easier to tell what card is special… with press pass last year having a ton of different cards… also i think some of the shots are better than last year! overall i think its a step up from last year. My top prospect would have to be RGIII! Robert Griffin III is probably going to go second in the draft, and if so, he will have to revive the redskins, and if he does, i think he will be a very good player, so that is who I choose for the 2012 prospect

    I really love the design of Press Pass Football 2012 this year! Its usually the first product with the chance to pull autos from the new rookie class every year and with this year stunning rookie class, press pass should be a hit with collectors. My favorite prospect is with out a doubt RG3. Andrew Luck is a great QB but i believe that RG3 will have a bigger impact on his team this season. The dude has a great arm, he’s smart and he’s very mobile. Thanks Beckett for the box break and keep up the great work guys!

    I have been buying Press Pass Football since 1997 when I first bought a die-cut promo card of Warrick Dunn. I look forward every year to this product, and this year is no different. I am a HUGE Football Draft Pick fan, and thoroughly enjoy this product and look forward to it every year. It really sucks that Press Pass no longer has the Collegiate License. It just does not look the same, obviously, without them. None the less, this is still a product I will buy every year as long as they continue to make these cards. This year’s cards look better to me because the design is not as busy as it was last year, when there was writing all over the place. This year’s cards look clearer and cleaner overall. As far as who I feel will be a major impact, Hobby-wise, it will be RG3. With him moving to play in the Nation’s Capital, the spotlight will be on him all season long, and with the addition of Pierre Garcon, RG3 will probably be more sought after than even Andrew Luck come next year. Too bad my Browns couldn’t land him, but I am also looking forward to collecting my fair share of Trent Richardson and Justin Blackmon as well. Hope one of them wind up with my Brownies!

    I like the set overall, i like how you get the complete set in a box and i like the refractors. I also think that Michael Flyod from Notre Dame will make a big splash because of his size and speed. and his ability to go up and get the ball and what he can do with it after he catches it. I would love to have a box to add to my collection!

    I’m an avid Press Pass collector. Love the smaller checklists, makes it easier to put together a set. Autograph sets are easy and not too expensive to build either. As for my top prospect, I would say Trent Richardson, tough to tackle and never fumbles, solid back for any team.

  18. Dave Wicker
    Posted March 15, 2012 at 9:10 pm | Permalink

    2012 Press Pass looks great; as stated in the video, it is not an overdone airbrush job that makes the card look cartoonish. The lineup of autographs is outstanding, with several prospects and hometown heroes to collect. From the variety of the autographs that were pulled you saw a mix of several conferences, positions, and a few that are projected first round picks. Overall the product looks solid if you want on card signatures, a nice selection of players, and more bang for your buck than many products offer. Now, if I was choosing a prospect other than Andrew Luck that I was expecting a lot out of, it is Dontari Poe from The University of Memphis. I know a lot of people won’t go with a defensive player, but I saw this kid play high school and college football and he is going to be a dominant interior lineman that could see a lot of work his first season.

    The product is very solid especially with the 6 auto per box and especially with the best players auto as an exclusive you just can’t go wrong with this years press pass. The prospect that I’m keeping my eye on is RG3, especially now that we can be certain he’s either going 1st or 2nd in the draft.

  20. Anthony
    Posted March 15, 2012 at 9:44 pm | Permalink

    Solid product. Nice and simple look – not overdone and over-thought. Cannot go wrong with hard signed autographs too. I’d have to say that RG3 is the best prospect. Good luck to the Redskins.

    The press pass for 2012 is looking surprisingly sharp! They’ve done a great job considering they are unlicensed. Also, changing up the bronze being more exclusive than the gold is new and makes the 2012 set unique. I am looking forward to the general release of these, great start to the season. My #1 prospect is Dontari Poe! Anyone who is 350+ lbs and can run a 4.8 sec 40 yard dash is a monster. His explosiveness reminds me of Jason Pierre-Paul in some ways. Salute to the team that picks him up!

    I like the sideways design of the card with the profile oic fits on the card nice and cleanly also a great view of the players expression on their face looks great and you can’t even notice the airbrush I think it will be a fun set to collect as well as the gold parallel set. My top prospect is Robert Griffin III I think he will go to the redskins who just got Pierre garçon who will be a great addition to the receiving core and a main target for griffin also griffin will be a great running quarterback almost like a combination of Tim Tebow and Michael Vick

  23. John Grosdidier

    I like press pass for the most part. The thing I don’t like about is the confusing autograph pricing. When I buy a product I like for the autographs to be in obvious tiers, this product seems to be a little confusing about what is worth what. I love the reflectors though that is a great part of press pass. My favorite prospect has to be Justin Blackmon, his skill set is crazy and has the potential to be the next Randy Moss. Overall I think this product is awesome like usual

    Posted March 15, 2012 at 11:47 pm | Permalink

    I really like the design of this years base cards. Plain and Simple not over done like in years past. I actually would prefer the autograph cards to be on the base card design instead of the one that the autograph comes on. Overall this product looks more appealing than in years past. The prospect that I am most looking forward to collecting is Ryan Tannehill. With everyone so caught up in Andrew Luck and RG3 I think some people are going to sleep on him.

    Press Pass is usually my favorite product to buy every year, because it introduces you to all the new rookies the are going to be NFL stars. I love buying Press Pass football every year, because it gives you more bang for your buck than any other product. I think the design on these cards look amazing and clean. I certainly look forward to 2012 Press Pass Fanfare Football as well. I am looking forward to collect Lamar Miller. I love to collect and watch fast running backs like Chris Johnson, so Lamar Miller will be my rookie to collect.

    Press pass looks great. They give a nice number of Autos plus the fact the hold the rights to Luck is going to mean big numbers for them this year. The price you talk about at 100 per is very fair for six rookie autographs and two base sets. The reflactor cards looked sweet. Not over done but enough to grab someones attention. The guy I have as my number one is Cordy Glenn, G/OT, Georgia. He is a beast at his position. The reason I’m watching him is because I’m a Chiefs fan and they need just a little more help on that line to protect the QB.

  27. Posted March 16, 2012 at 2:48 am | Permalink

    I like that Pres Pass decided to go with a close-up image of the players, it keeps the card clean and it makes the set look complete/organized. A small checklist works well, this way they can use players that are sure to be drafted and are well known instead of loading up on players who may be on the bubble or questionable.

    My prospect is Nick Foles, I have been a lifelong University of Arizona fan and I love seeing Wildcat players making it in the NFL. I hope to see him drafted by my Seahawks, what could be better? I was happy to see Andrew pull a Foles card from his packs.

    I really like the landscape format of the 2012 release and the fact that the cards are very colorful and sharp. Ilike the Idea of a smaller base set and fewer subsets. As for my best prospect is Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Michael Floyd. He is a BEAST!

    I like the look of Press Pass this year, nothing spectacular, but overall solid product. My favorite prospect, not named Andrew Luck, would have to be Trent Richardson. I think he has a very bright NFL future ahead of him.

  31. Robert Sellers
    Posted March 16, 2012 at 7:39 am | Permalink

    Really like the way press pass did the cards. Using only bust shots of the players gave the cards a nice clean look. Love the short checklist, and also the tougher parrells too. As for my top prospect, it would have to be trent richardson. The NFL has plenty of good quarterbacks but not many quality running backs. Too many teams are getting away from the running game these days. If you can run the ball you can win games. Thanks

  32. Tyler Lambert
    Posted March 16, 2012 at 8:49 am | Permalink

    I really like the look of these cards. They seem very sleek without going overboard. The use of solely busts makes the cards focus on the player. If I had to pick a can’t miss prospect it would be Trent Richardson. The guy has all of the skills to be elite and has the work ethic that you want in a feature running back.

    Press Pass was always one of my favorites so seeing the design I think they will score high marks with collectors. Love the horizontal look and from the video they appear to be glossy as well. The player selection is not too out there so you only get the true prospects. I think RG3 will be a force to reckon with early in the year.

    Press Pass looks very nice this year. Clean design. Nothing too flashy, but it doesn’t need to be. It offers a pre-draft look at the rookies we all will be talking about come next season. A 50 card base set is also a good thing as it gives a better shot at pulling the players that will have an impact next season. Also, 100 dollar price point with on card autos is always a plus. I belive RG3s work ethic along with his obvious talents will make him an immediately success in the NFL.

    (***FROM MOD – WINNER!***) Yes! Press Pass is finally here! What I LOVE about this product is that it delivers beautiful hard signed autographs of all of the top prospects going into the draft. What I also love about this product is that it will deliver Andrew Lucks first autographs, I mean do not get me wrong I am not on the Luck fan bandwagon, but who does not want to pull his on-card autograph? I also am very ipressed with the base and insert designs this year, the cards arent to flashy but also look very neat and catch your eye. This product is always my favorite non NFL liscensed product, definitely not Sage Hit. The prospect that I have been keeping my eye on for the last few monthes is Quinton Coples from the University of North Carolina Tar Heels. Coples is just a monster he stands 6 foot 6 and weighs in at 285 pounds, he is also fast for a man his size running a staggering 4.78 second 40 yard dash. This is my input on 2012 Press Pass football, good luck to all with this contest and thanks Beckett! (***FROM MOD – WINNER!***)

    Sweet looking product, like the landscaped orientation, simple yet effective design with no logos, featuring the player predominently.

    Prospect wise Keenum doesnt get enough love in my opinion , Floyd from ND could be a top flight WR and whomever the Colts draft is in for ONE LONG SEASON!

    2012 Press Pass as always Andrew Press Pass has on-card auto’s no stickers thats waht is best even the big guys can’t always get that right. I appreciate that little detail. Although I like the Power Pick auto’s and Class of so I’ll miss that. Goood to see a lilttle change in the Teir on the auto’s. When you get similar produsts ie PPSE PP LEGENDS all the parallels waters down the prodcut and it’s hard to tell what is reall harder to hit overall. I’m a big Va Tech fan so of course David Wilson Jrod Hosley also being a Redskin fan RG3. Thanks guys I could use a little LUCK so I’ll be waitng for the email

    I think 2012 Press Pass Football looks like a really nice product and I might have to try it. The autos looked very clean in your box break video and are probably the best for football so far this year. Even though hes not ranked as others I think Stephon Gilmore could be a great player at the next level. He is decent size, pretty fast, and has great athletic skills. He plays CB/PR/KR. He is predicted to go in the late first to early second round picks.

    I’m not a fan of the base card design.Yeah,it’s different.However,I think it looks better than last year.I do like the design of the autographs,though.Much better than Sage Hit.

    My prospect to watch may be somewhat of a reach.For the round he’s projected,he could be a pretty good sleeper.Isaiah Pead from Cincinnati.Good speed,quick,very deceptive,and not afraid to run into the defense.Given the right team,he could put up Ray Rice type numbers in my opinion.

    I think Press Pass is doing a great job with their hands being tied on the licensing issue. Their cards are always quite aesthetic and I love having them in my collection.

    The prospect I’m looking to collect the most is Kellen Moore from Boise State as I admire him as a student and an athlete and hope he has a respectable shot with a pro team. I do plan to collect him this year regardless of who he signs with.

  47. Posted March 17, 2012 at 9:52 am | Permalink

    With the league being so pass happy. Justin Blackmon from OSU may be a sleeper. The best WR in the draft.

    2012 Press Pass looks to be a pretty good product this year. The pictures are sharp and the air brushing is done well enough to not distract from the cards. I also like that there aren’t 800 different inserts, variations of inserts, etc. in the set.

    As far as an impact player in the 2012 draft class, I think that Whitney Mercilus out of Illinois has all the tools to turn into a Jason Pierre-Paul starter kit.

    I like how Pree Pass has a smaller base set with no inserts. As a set builder, Press Pass in the past could be tough with short -prints and too many inserts. Also, not too bad of a SRP. As for prospects, I’d go with RG3. Not only can he throw and run, but he is one of the most humble prospects to come out in years.

    I have always enjoyed Press Pass! I wish they would release some midyear or end of the year products. This year’s set is nothing short of amazing. There are a few players that are expected to do well, but a lot of “sleepers” as well. The player, other than Luck, who will do well is RG3. He will play with a “chip on his shoulder.” He won the Heisman – not Luck. He also will have less pressure, possibly going to Washington, who has not had success with a starting QB in a while. Luck will do well, but he is replacing a legend in Peyton Manning. The expectations on him are probably too high. RG3 (Robert Griffin III) can just play freely and “let it ride” and that is when he is at his best.

    I love the very sharp extremely clean autographs. Press Pass does a good job every year. My prospect is Trent Richardson. He’s a beast with just raw talent with the never give up attitude.

    Posted March 18, 2012 at 8:34 am | Permalink

    As a NASCAR guy, I like Press Pass, they might not have the pomp and circumstance as other NFL cards, but a very solid product overall. I believe this shows by the fact they do not bloat the product with a ton of inserts. It is also pretty nice to get a complete set without having to buy 2+ boxes, and ending up with a ton of duplicate cards you do not need. Add these factors + NO REDEMPTIONS or STICKERS (that I have seen anyway) + the early release date = One happy customer here.
    As far as my pick for top prospect, I am going with Alshon Jeffery. As an SEC guy (WAR EAGLE!!!!!!) I have watched most of his games. With everyone’s eyes on Luck, Griffin, Richardson, James and other “big-name” players, I feel Jeffery will go a little lower in the draft, but has the skills to make an immediate difference to ANY team. Think Torrey Smith.

    I am not usually a fan of the press pass design. This years’ design appears far better, and with fewer inserts, not to mention being the only non licensed product to feature Andrew Luck’s auto, I think 2012 press pass will be a hit. I look forward to getting my first box, which is something i have never looked forward to before.
    Though i think Robert Griffin lll and even Andrew Luck will eventually be solid nfl quartebacks, they are both going into bad situations, especially Luck. I think trent richardson will have a great chance to do very well wherever he ends up. He has the power to break tackles and enough moves to make some people miss. He also had some good games against some great collage defenses. He also improved on his blocking and patience in the backfield which would lead me to believe that he will be the best prospect in this draft, and one of the better running backs to come out of collage for a few years.

    I love press pass!!! they have always been on of my favorite brands because they hand out so many autos!!! this year the cards look so much cleaner, crisper, and cooler. they have great players and im glad that they shortened their number of cards, as now it is easier to collect the base set.
    And i think that maybe a great prospect for the draft who is a little underated would be receiver out of Oklahoma Ryan Broyles. He broke so many records while their including the ncaa record for most catches in a career and he would of done more had it not been for a terrible ACL Tear against Texas A&M. But i think his injury will heal and he will have a fantastic NFL career.

    I think that Press Pass is a nice product for the beginning of the year. You can’t beat 6 autographs for around $100. This year is one of the better designs I’ve seen out of this product in a long time. I’ll end up getting a few of these boxes this year because of the draft this year being loaded with a lot of talent. With that being said I do believe my breakout prospect is Michael Floyd the WR out of Notre Dame. I think if he can get it together off the field then he can be a great NFL Wideout for years to come. He’s 6-3 224 and ran a 4.4 unofficial 40 yard dash. To me that’s impressive and that’s why he’ll have a standout year wherever he gets picked as long as he leaves the off field baggage behind.

    Love the fact of the on card autos in Press Pass. Sharp looking cards and a great way to kick-off the 2012 campaign. Appreciate the chance of hitting a short print auto and the neat marketing of making bronze an even more difficult pull. Think the player having the most impact in the long run will be Robert Griffin III. Great job Press Pass!

    I think it’s a very clean look, but for me simple is more. I can’t wait to get my hands on Michael Floyd of Notre Dame autos.

    I like the Press Pass this year. I like the clean look. I opened up 10 packs of the Sage Hit and I gotta say the press pass looks alot better. The prospect im looking forward to this year other than Luck is a tie between Alshon Jeffrey and RGIII

    Great looking product, nice clean looking cards, also like how they don’t have any stickers, all on card autos.

    My top prospect outside of Luck, and the obvious choices, is Juron Criner out of Arizona. He’s not going to be on the top of any teams WR prospects, probably in the 7-15 range, but he’s going to make an impact from day 1, the guy just knows how to go get the ball and come up with the big play.

    A team like Denver now with Manning would do great to grab him in the 3-5 round area.

    I think press pass is totally worth the money considering the prospects coming out in one box. That including Justin Blackman and Poe. I would have to say my favorite pick has to be dontari Poe because of his athleticism and the fact that teams are going to have fun putting him at a position because he can play anything!!!!

    I like the smiple clean look of this year’s press pass. First box that I bought I got a sweet T. Richardson auto it is 5 out of 25 power pick. One of the nicest cards i’ve Ever pulled. Don’t sleep on T. Richardson if he gets playing time he’ll be a star in no time this year.

    (***FROM MOD – WINNER!***) I like the look of this years product. The base design is an improvement over last year’s since it is very clean and basic. I thought last years stadium lights and scoreboard design was kind of cheesy so I’m very glad they stayed away from that. I also enjoy the fact that this year the photos feature the players in helmets instead of a generic head shot. That being said, I’m not sure why they airbrush the helmet stripping completely out of the photos. Leaf seems to get away with just airbrushing the logos off the helmets and the cards seem to have a much more “official” feel to it even though its not officially licensed either. My favorite NFL prospect is Russell Wilson because of the value he will provide the team that drafts him. He has amazing passing accuracy, great speed and more importantly for success in the NFL, he is intelligent and has proved that he is capable of learning a system and mastering it. Plus he’s very grounded as person and will prepare in a professional manner. Even if he starts off as a backup, which he probably will given his height, I would not be surprised to see him start in a couple of years. (***FROM MOD – WINNER!***)

    I think the 2012 is much improved over last year’s look (that I did not collect). I hate that after 2010 they didn’t get an NCAA license because I actually like collecting the rookies in their college uniforms/logos. I like that the autos are on card and clean. I think Trent Richardson will do well in the NFL.

    I think this years Press Pass football looks very clean and neat. There are not many inserts and the only inserts there are are only autographed. I Picked up a few packs at my local LCS and got all of the top prospects projected in the first round of the draft (Griffin lll, Luck, Blackmon, etc.). They are all head shots so I’m guessing they don’t have a NFL license. I also like the fact the auros are all on-card. I think Ryan Tannehill is underrated because of the great quarterbacks this year, so he is my pick for the best prospect in the draft and in the NFL. I really hope I win!!! :)

    I pulled a RG3 autograph Ruby Red, blue print signature 19/25 from a box… Any idea of what it’s worth?

    The 2012 Press Pass Football has a nice clean, minimalistic look which lends itself very well to signature cards, which is what this set is really all about. The airbrushing as well as the lack of college logo really not noticeable due to the well placed images and text. The new “gridiron” silhouette is a nice looking addition to the bronze cards. I do, however, prefer the bronze cards as the unnumbered version as in previous years. However, this is simply personal taste as I have never been a fan of the silver version. Additionally, I like the horizontal card format which offers ample space for the nickname inscriptions (i.e. Paul “the Interceptor” Krause and Antonio “Buttons” Freeman from the 2011 Legends set). This makes for a much more aesthetically pleasing signature card.

    With regards to the 2nd best prospect in this year’s draft; I would really like to pick someone other than the obvious choice such as a Michael Floyd, Donta Hightower, Trent Richardson, Stephen Hill, etc. HOWEVER, it is very hard to pass on the obvious choice of RGIII. Although Griffin is known for his serious athletic ability, he possesses other less talked about attributes which leave very little lacking from his game. Obviously, he is an incredible athlete and his combine numbers reiterated this. Although some has pointed out that Luck’s 40-time was not far from Griffin’s, Luck could only dream of having the foot-quickness of Griffin. Moreover, Griffin, in my opinion throws the deep ball BETTER than Andrew Luck. He has that ability to seemingly flick his wrist and throw deep balls much like Michael Vick is able to do. Griffin also had a completion percentage of over 70% in his final college season as well as improving this percentage each of his four seasons at Baylor. Finally, not much is said about Griffin’s intelligence. However, Griffin completed his B.A. at Baylor with a 3.76 GPA in 2010 and began his Master’s degree in 2011. He also possesses the leadership qualities and work ethic that will translate well into an NFL locker room.
    In contrast, Michael Floyd was suspended from the Fighting Irish for a DUI as well as missing some time due to injuries. Stephen Hill is an all or nothing prospect who doesn’t run routes well and had numerous dropped passes at Georgia Tech. By many accounts Hightower may not even be the best prospect on his own team! Courtney Upshaw has been viewed as a Lamarr Woodley type player that could fit nicely in Dick LeBeau’s system. Considering the NFL has become a passing first league, quarterbacks and wide receivers seem to be the obvious position choices in finding the best prospects. Thus, it becomes difficult to choose a guy like Trent Richardson even though he appears to be a solid running back. Cornerbacks are another interesting choice, however, the number one prospect, Morris Claiborne is only 5’ 11” and 177 lbs. Two other top corner prospects have drug issues; Dre Kirkpatrick has one possession of marijuana arrest and Janoris Jenkins has two possession of marijuana arrests and was dismissed from Florida, playing his final season at North Alabama.

    Hi guys, I left a comment about a week ago and was wondering when you would announce the winners to the contest. I’m really anxious to know, probably because I’m only 10 years old as a HUGE card collector! Thank you and I hope you can respond!!!

    I think this year’s product is very well put together, they are well worth the money. The autographs are very nice as well and from all of the boxes I’ve seen it appears that you have a good chance at getting autos from quality players.

    This year’s draft class has the potential to be a great one. There were a few guys who blew me away with their combine/ pro day workouts. I really want to see what Stephen Hill can do when the ball is thrown his way more often. He has the potential to be an Andre Johnson/ Megatron type receiver with his combination of size, speed, and catching ability.

    Congrats Debbie! I received my box in the mail today and am resisting the strong urge to open it. I’ll probably wait to open it until the draft next Thursday night. With 30 packs, I’ll go slow and open a pack after every draft pick.
