I would list catching tools in this order:

1. Receiving

2. Blocking

3. Throwing accuracy

4. Hitting

5. Arm strength

6. Athleticism

7. Catcher IQ

Pop-time doesn't matter if you have the tools listed above. Pop-time is directly related to all above except hitting! Certainly arm strength and athleticism affect everything else.

Most college pitchers will be able to tell you who the best catcher on the team is--and it has absolutely nothing to do with pop-time.
