According to Jason Kirk of SBNation.com, Braxton Berrios doesn't have "much of a top gear." Unsurprisingly, Berrios only seems to remind him of other former Patriot slot receivers (Welker, Amendola), but not Troy Brown for some reason... https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2018/4/28/17297086/braxton-berrios-patriots-nfl-draft-2018 "Every time anyone watched a Miami Hurricanes game in the last year or two, they all made the same joke about WR Braxton Berrios: that guy looks like a New England Patriot. The Pats have trademarked a certain kind of wide receiver — small, shifty, slot-ty, good hands, good routes, and not much of a top gear, among other traits — and Berrios looked to many people like an obvious heir to the lineage. Somebody always reminds people of Wes Welker and Danny Amendola and so forth. It’s an annual thing. Last year, Ryan Switzer caught the tag. Berrios is more than just an archetype, of course: No player on Miami’s roster in 2017 was more integral to the program than wide receiver Braxton Berrios. Whether it was as a returner, wide receiver or team-elected captain, the Raleigh, North Carolina, native leaves it all on the field whenever he suits up. Since coming to Miami, the five-foot-nine receiver has heard the criticisms. He’s just a slot receiver, he’s destined to be a New England Patriot, he’s not fast enough. In his four years at Miami, Berrios illustrated that he is more than the sum of what he lacks. When Berrios ended his career at UM, he was named the Offensive Player of the Year, The Mariutto Family Scholar-Athlete Award and was a finalist for the Campbell Award which is given to an athlete who performs well academically, is involved in the community and has great on-field performance. A Finance and Entrepreneurship major with a 3.96 GPA, Berrios has excelled in every walk of life in regards to being a student athlete." "He is more than the sum of what he lacks." WTF? Berrios ran a 4.44 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and allegedly ran a 4.35 40 during the Miami pro-day... http://caneswatch.blog.palmbeachpos...8-nfl-auditions-feel-like-last-day-of-school/ But he's white, so he can't be considered "fast" under any circumstance. I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter how many white WR's lead their team to SB victory or have 1,000-yard seasons, they'll always be stigmatized and never get the respect they deserve. In last year's SB game, three (3) different white pass-catchers on the same team had over 100 receiving yards.
