This way, you could have a WR with high SPC that can make all kinds of crazy circus catches, but can't pull them in due to a low CTH rating (like TO), or you could have the opposite, a WR that can't make many catches outside of his torso area or arm's length (low SPC) but he can bring in anything that hits his hands (high CTH).
Basically, the SPC rating could help distinguish hands-catchers from body-catchers. Hands-catchers (high SPC) can make more leaning/one-handed/almost-out-of-reach grabs, while body-catchers (low SPC) can only make catches that hit them in the chest or are really easy.
