Thoughts on that kid from Ellon? Supposedly the Ravens are very interested.
Drafting Mellette means that we will have yet another receiver on the roster that will routinely struggle to gain separation.
Overall, for WRs, If I/you 1) believe that WR is a need, and 2) believe the industry line that in this draft there are 4-5 top dogs following by a large mass of equal-talented prospects then I/you should also believe that there's a great chance that we are going to draft a WR somewhere from #32 on down to #70-78 (i.e., the middle of the 3rd round), b/c there's equal value. Neither Harper nor Mellette are close to being top 78 players.
Note: I would say that this same "belief" should apply to ILB, which is much more of a need than WR.
Eh...I'm too hard on Harper :hammer:
He could be a nice possession guy, but he won't get away from the taller DBs out there.
His 2012 season tape definitely shows more of a 4.5 than a 4.7.Quote:
Tony Wiltshire @TonyWiltshire 7m
Keenan Allen's Junior Day in 2012 - 4.53 40 (1.57, 2.55), 4.28 Short Shuttle, 7.12 3-Cone, 9'7" BJ, 35" Vertical, 17 Bench Reps
4.7? wow. maybe we can trade down, get a LB/S/DT, then trade up into the middle of the second. anf still get Allen.
This gave me a chuckle b/c it was just what I was talking about with some cats at lunch.
Kiper projects Da'Rick Rogers to go early on day three. Has him as a 4th rounder right now.
@ECStoner would die RT @MatthewFairburn: Kiper projects Da'Rick Rogers to go early on day three. Has him as a 4th rounder right now.
@OS_Counterman @MatthewFairburn He'd be a disgusting steal there.
@ECStoner @OS_Counterman @MatthewFairburn Ravens.
@ap575 @ecstoner @matthewfairburn Love him on the other side of Smith.
@ap575 @ecstoner @os_counterman @matthewfairburn yeah Ozzie probably hoping Patterson & Allen fall.
What about King from UGA? Don't hear his name very often.
There is talk of Cordarrelle Patterson sliding down draft boards.
If he is there at 32...can you pass him up?
