Yeah, Pankratz was pretty light. 180 lbs... I weighed that when I was 16.

John Pankratz was listed at 6 ft. 0 and 190 lbs. on his 1984 Jogo trading card. I don't necessarily trust official heights and weights.

Yeah, but ... a lot of the all-time great receivers (CFL & NFL) have been guys in that range (under 6' or well under 200 pounds) - think of Cahoon or Terry Vaughn or Darren Flutie - quick, shifty guys; Uncle Milt & Geroy were hardly heavy-weights at receiver.

I started this thread after the success of Claypool as an NFL rookie and also thinking about 6-7 Rysen John in this past draft class - out of BC; and it got me to thinking of CFL history and other big BC pass catcher names came up ... Durant now, Paris Jackson, Danielsen, Christensen. Teyo Johnson too = just seems BC has produced a large number of these big lad receivers ?

No argument here. I really liked Pankratz but he certainly wasn't a "big" receiver .
