How is Manningham in anyway similar Braylon Edwards? I guess they both play WR and went to Michigan, but thats about the only similarity. Edwards is 6'3" and 217 pounds, Manningham is barely 6'0" and is 178 pounds. Edwards is a big physical receiver with amazing hands, Manningham is a small receiver with questionable hands.
Braylon Edwards: 97 passes for 1,330 yards and 15 touchdowns
Mario Manningham: 72 passes for 1,174 yards and 12 touchdowns
Braylon Edwards: 252 catches for 3,541 yards and 39 touchdowns
Mario Manningham: 137 catches for 2,310 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Braylon Edwards was the third overall pick, and Manningham will probably go in the middle to late second round. I don't see any similarities other than they are both from Michigan, it doesn't make much sense to compare them, just like it doesn't make any sense to compare every receiver from Marshall to Randy Moss, and every receiver from Mississippi Valley State to Jerry Rice.
Manningham has hands and i dont care what people say about the drops.
To me, he reminds me of a small braylon.
Braylon also had speed.
So does manningham.
Braylon has good hands, and for the most part manningam has as well.
