If used correctly, like he was used in Weis' system, he isn't a slot receiver as much as he is a hybrid. He provides better value than a pure slot receiver because he has ability to motion in as a ball carrier, and more value than a 2nd back because he has ability to motion into the slot. He has to improve as a slot receiver to do that. But there is absolutely a place for him if he does.
You're making this too complicated.
It doesn't matter if you think he's fast or quick or good at handjobs or flipping burgers or whatever.
The simple fact: he doesn't make plays. He doesn't contribute to winning football.
When he gets the ball, 9 times outta 10...no one gives a shit.
