    You could see it at the combine when he ran the gauntlet, such soft but strong hands.

    Re: Any of these prospects worth grabbing??

    I'll just give you one bit of advice. When you research these players for your write up, keep in mind that Ozzie only takes players in the first round that he personally has a first round grade on. He never takes a player in the first round that he didn't have a first round grade on. I can't remember what the Grade was on Kyle Boller, but that might have been the only one I can think of and Ozzie has regretted that ever since.

    Now, also keep in mind that some guys Ozzie has taken in the second round, have been given a first round grade as well. Torrey Smith is a player who, by John Harbaugh's admission, had a first round grade. They were stunned that he was still there in the second round.

    Sure. Make it so

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Yes, please do so. I think WR is a very underrated need for us heading into the draft. Now that Joe is locked up, he needs some consistent playmakers on the outside. Q can't play forever and Torrey can't do it all by himself. Now, I do hope we can restructure Jacoby so that he's here for a few more years, but we still need some young wideouts to develop.

    Kevin Minter and Tavon Austin are the two picks I'd love to have to chose between when pick 32 comes up.

    Sad part is...I want both

    If it is between those two...Austin all the way.

    Your Jenkins writeup could've been used nearly word-for-word for Cody 2 years ago. That's what's scary. Guys that big don't need technique to dominate in college, but once they get to the NFL it's critical. Unless Jenkins is already fundamentally sound--& if he has stamina problems I have to wonder; sounds as if he's just done it with brute force--Oz won't go anywhere near him in any round.

    I have to admit, it would be cool to see two local guys burning CBs down the field while catching bombs from the Super Bowl XLVII MVP

    I'm admittedly biased, but I'd be surprised if Nuk Hopkins isn't the best WR to come out of this class. He screamed 'NFL receiver' the last two seasons the same way that Dwayne Allen screamed 'NFL tight end' his last two. Some guys just have it.

    The game against LSU reflects really well on him. As stout a defense as you'll find in college football, and Sammy Watkins was knocked out in the first offensive series. So Hopkins was the guy for LSU to key on, and everyone knew it. Even with an uncharacteristic drop or two, he torched that secondary to the tune of 13 catches for 191 yards and 2 TDs.

    DeAndre Hopkins is vastly underrated.

    Yeah, I'm writing as we speak about Hopkins. I think the guy is ready. If he falls and Minter, Austin, or other top 2 propects on Ozzie's board aren't there, I think Hopkins is the guy.
    Don't sleep on Robert Woods either. I'll insert him in my article as well. Tremendous year at USC and had a FANTASTIC Combine outing.

    Yeah, I've felt that Minter is the best ILB in this draft, but Tavon Austin is a prospect on another level. If he were even three inches taller, he might be considered the best prospect in this draft.

    Agreed. Hopkins dominated that game. What I really liked about it was how clutch he was when his team needed it. Absolutely put the team on his back.
