Has electric quickness and agility and is able to get away from defenders.
Strong and dedicated, when the Cards ask their star wideout to block, he delivers.
Rarely does the ball hit the ground when thrown Fitzgerald's way.
He has the strength to get great push off the line of scrimmage and is tough to get re-routed.
Excels no matter the route. Fitzgerald has a long stride but can break down and sink his hips to get in and out of route stems.
Catch in Traffic
Has the strength to overpower most cornerbacks when challenged.
It's unlikely he would impress in a 40-yard dash, but Fitzgerald has the speed where he can stretch deep zones.
Yards After Catch
He has good run skills after the catch and can turn a short catch into a long touchdown with just a single missed tackle.
Does a great job adjusting to find the ball, showing good vision and anticipation to make acrobatic catches.
Didn't miss any games in 2011.
Fitzgerald doesn't rank as the No. 1 receiver (he's close), but if you talk about the best all-around wide receiver in football, it is hard to find an argument against Larry Fitzgerald as the top player. He may not be as electric or highlight-worthy as others, but he's a quiet technician who simply dominates on the field for the mediocre Cardinals.
