Good to see he'll get a chance with the Ravens.I think he has hit his ceiling.
Happy to be proven wrong, but he's not shown untapped potential. Solid player, but always a bit of a stretch to make it in the NFL, imo.
I don't know if I've ever heard Slade's 40 time. I suspect it's good/respectable. He is a good route runner and I'd say he has decent hands (he dropped a few, but every receiver does).
The thing with Slade is he never proved to be dangerous. After he caught the ball, no matter how good a route he ran, he struggled to make impact plays. It used to be called juke/jive, but whatever it is he's missing something. Again, his speed/quickness may be good but some people are just different in space (think "the Duece," Arenas, Waddle). I think that's what Slade is missing.
Having said that...I'll be rooting for him to make the roster!
