Twitter is a compendium of information for almost any topic and the sports world is one of those areas that significantly feels its reach.

Obviously, with such a heavy amount of material and a wild variety of contributing minds, there is the digestible and the outrageous.

This allows Twitter to be an interesting resource on a topic of interest, and today that inquiry comes in the form of Parris Campbell.

What are people on Twitter saying about the newly minted Indianapolis Colts wide receiver?

Let’s take a look:


First let’s see what everybody’s favorite website has to say about the pick

Fantasy nerds (an endearing term in my eyes) should take notice

The numbers back up the run-after-catch ability Campbell shows on film

Campbell will, presumably, be allowed to showcase his deep talents much more in a Colts jersey

It’s not all good news, as this may be an area to monitor, though it’s coming from one individual in this case

How about we see some of that speed in action? By the way, make sure you check out Zach Hicks’ film breakdown on Campbell, if you haven’t already

So, he can run past 5 yards!?

Campbell isn’t just fast, but fits the scheme in Indianapolis as well

It’s not just the numbers and tape that back-up the speed claim that Campbell has, but the off-field workouts as well? Wow.

Percy Harvin comparisons aren’t too shabby

It’ll be difficult for defenses to figure out how to best cover him

Campbell is already saying, and doing, all the right things and allowing himself to learn from the successful receiver that’s been there for years

How’s Campbell doing with his first few practices in the blue and white? Seems like he’s off on the right foot

And from the man himself


Conclusion

I understand that this seems like an optimistic overview of a prospect chosen in the 2nd round, and of course there is risk involved with any player coming into the pros.

However, Campbell showcases a lot of usable abilities at the next level, and he’s already started off his professional life on a strong note.

He is also in a situation where he will be allowed to succeed, as he’s joining a potent offense that desperately needs his baseline talents as a run after the catch connoisseur.

What will he actually become? We’ll just have to wait and see, until then, please light up the comments sections with your gripes and groans, and maybe the occasional complimentary thought, if there’s time for that sort of nonsense.
