  1. Official 2020 WR Thread

    He looks small and frail on the field. I like my receivers to be 6'2" or taller. Also I like my receivers to make contested catches. Didn't see much of that with Jeudy. Given that you named Lamb and Ruggs as other receivers you liked, you must be more of a stats guy than an eye test guy. I personally don't put one ounce of value on college production. I only watch the games and look to see if players stands out. How a player stands out to me is by making plays that are not routine. Guys who make big time plays that showcase elite skill and athleticism. I haven't watched Bryan Edwards much but I have seen him enough to where he jumped off the screen to me when I saw him play. Same with Marquez Callaway. And obviously Tee Higgins. They just jump off the screen. I can't say that about the guys you named. They look to me like stat compilers rather than elite players.
  2. Official 2020 WR Thread

    I'll never understand why people fall for WRs that lack freakish attributes that high in the draft. Jerry Jeudy is very unremarkable physically. He just has great collegiate production going for him and that rarely correlates to NFL success. I wouldn't even rate him in my top 3 receivers for next year's draft. Here are my top WRs in the 2020 NFL Draft: 1. Tee Higgins (Clemson) - NFL comp: AJ Green 2. Marquez Callaway (Tennessee) - NFL comp: DeAndre Hopkins 3. Bryan Edwards (South Carolina) - NFL comp: Allen Robinson
  3. 2020 Prospects and beyond

    Amon-Ra St. Brown = Golden Tate Good NFL prospect but not that special.
  4. Totally disagree. He isn't athletic enough to play RB or WR in the NFL. And he's not as bad at QB as you claim. Sure he's no franchise QB. But I could see him being a solid backup with spot starting abilities as a NFL QB. His actually reminds me a bit of Tyrod Taylor.
  5. Injuries can happen to anyone. I wouldn't consider Jalen soft. But being such a big target at 6'5" 225 lbs he does take a lot of punishment. That's the main reason he switched positions. He was getting beat up too much being such a huge RB.
  6. I watched every snap of Hurd's career at Tennessee. An argument could be made that he was the best player on the 2015 Vols. And for the record that was a team filled with many future NFL players (including current NFL superstar Alvin Kamara). The Vols that year led every team they lost to in the 4th quarter including both Alabama and Oklahoma (two teams that made the college football playoff that year). They were the team that year that was talented enough to jump on everyone but would choke the game away late due to bad coaching. As a Vol fan I can tell you that Jalen Hurd was CLEARLY the best RB on the Vols roster that year. Alvin Kamara was a great RB as well no doubt. But Hurd was better. Alvin really took off as a player in 2016 while Hurd declined. That is the year people can make fun of Butch Jones for sticking with Hurd as the starter instead of Kamara. I bring all this up to tell you that Jalen Hurd has PHENOMENAL talent as a RB. I compared Kamara to Marshall Faulk before the 2017 draft and people laughed at me. The contention being how can I compare a guy who was a backup in college to one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. Two years in that comparison doesn't seem laughable. Now I'm not trying to pat myself on the back for the Alvin comp. I'm just trying to let yall know that when I say Hurd was a better RB than Kamara in 2015, I'm not doing so to disparage Alvin. I'm saying that to let yall know just how special of a talent Jalen Hurd is. I was very dissapointed in 2016 when he announced his decision to switch positions. I thought he had Pro Bowl talent at the RB position. He reminded me of Eddie George. Thus going into this year I had low expectations for Jalen as a WR. I thought he was gonna look out of place. Boy was I wrong. From his first game at Baylor I was ASTONISHED. He had totally changed his body. Became more lean and explosive. His movements seemed so natural. His route running was remarkably precise for a guy who just started playing wide receiver. His hands were surprisingly natural. He transformed himself from an Eddie George type running back into a natural wide receiver. Its a pretty amazing transformation. As a WR I would compare Hurd's game to Bills Hall of Famer Andre Reed. I'm not saying Hurd will be a Hall of Famer. I'm just saying that's who his game tape at WR reminds me of. Just as Alvin reminded me of Marshall Faulk. I expect Kyle to move Jalen all around. I think the biggest thing he will look to exploit is Jalen's ability to run after the catch. As a former RB, he's a load to bring down and he has elite open field running skills. Look for Kyle to work Jalen across the middle of the field on shallow crosses and slants so that he can run after the catch. Jalen Hurd is a special player. He will be as successful in the NFL as Alvin Kamara. I truly believe that.
  7. I got the 49ers going 10-6 next year. That may or may not be good enough to win the division. Either way they should make the playoffs.
  8. It happened two years ago for the Saints. Why not this year for yall?
  9. 49ers fans rejoice. You just drafted the Alvin Kamara of the 2019 draft class. Jalen Hurd is a stud. He will be a star player for yall. Maybe even Rookie of the Year this upcoming season. Like Alvin he has football speed. Don't let the slow 40 he ran while recovering from knee surgery fool you. Jalen is incredibly explosive and agile for a man his size.
  10. Best/Worst Drafts From Day 2

    San Francisco 49ers simply off the selection of Jalen Hurd. I believe he will be a star WR in the NFL. I also liked what the Philadelphia Eagles did. Miles Sanders is an instant impact player.
  11. 1. Saquon Barkley 2. Alvin Kamara
  12. 2011 Draft vs 2014 Draft

    2011 easily. Its probably the best draft since 1983. Definitely the best since 1996.
  13. Draft Comparisons

    CB Trayvon Mullen = CB Artie Burns LB/DE Brian Burns = LB/DE Barkevious Mingo RB Rodney Anderson = RB Arian Foster
  14. NFL DRAFT RUMOR THREAD

    This is my comp for him as well. Mini-Vick. I wouldn't be opposed to taking him #1 overall but I doubt he develops into a Super Bowl winning QB.
  15. Tevin Coleman vs LeVeon Bell

    I agree. I'm not keen on signing Bell either given his age and presumed salary. My take there was simply about who is the better player in a vacuum. For example if both players were the same price I'm taking Bell 10 times outta 10.
