    Todd Blythe

    Anyone know where Todd Blythe is today? I still can't believe that he didn't have a long career in the NFL. He was so big and fast, and had amazing hands.

    Have you been drinking? Just check twitter, it shouldn't be too hard to get his current whereabouts.

    Wow. Hadn't actually occurred to me to look him up. He's a wide receivers coach and UNI, so I guess we'll see him next week.

    Good college receiver, but I don't think he was that fast, and I don't think he ran the best routes.

    He had a great vertical, hands, and size. I'm a little surprised he never caught on.

    didn't like blocking, didn't like going across the middle. but man could he run a fade to the corner of the endzone!

    Re: Todd Blythe

    From Todd Blythe: Combine Stats at NFL.com:

    Positives: Uses his height to make the downfield play, showing the knack to adjust and grab the jump ball. Should be a fine red-zone target in that respect. ... Willing blocker who can handle his corner in the open field for a short time to spring a back for the long one. ... Uses the double move, will head fake his corner to open up the post route. ... Unlikely to drop a ball that comes into his area. ... Showed great toughness coming back from a torn ACL in only five months before the 2005 season.

    Negatives: Very lanky and could struggle to handle press coverage against pro cornerbacks. ... Body catches too often. ... Does not scare opponents with his downfield speed or quickness. ... Not sudden in or out of his breaks, which will give NFL corners a chance to jump his routes. ... Doesn't sustain blocks because of a lack of flexibility and functional strength.

    Re: Todd Blythe

    I always assumed his 2 years with the barnstormers would help with his across-the-middleitis but the 6 or so games I attended and saw him play he rarely took hits.

    I read an article where a Saints coach said that Blythe had a horrible attitude. Wonder if that is why he couldn't even cut it in the CFL


    This is Ophion speaking.

    The toughest I ever saw him play was against Iowa in 2005. That's not a good thing vs. a season that should have had much better results. (Sorry to anyone who still LOVES that game).

    He was tall, not that fast, and, as previous posts have suggested, used his body more than his hands. Had some nice plays for ISU in the time he played. If all goes well, next season ISU will have at least 3 receivers that are more NFL-savvy than someone like Blythe.

    Austin Flynn's skill set was better suited for something like the NFL, and his skill set wasn't suited for the NFL.

    Re: Todd Blythe

    I always thought he had speed, height, and hands. Great catching passes in the vertical game. Then he wrecked his knee and the speed never came back. He couldn't be a possession receiver. My admittedly amateur opinion.

    Re: Todd Blythe

    What people forget are that many of his "greatest" catches were the result of his great ability to shove off to create space.
