An extra 4th and 6th.
They need to pick well.
Hope we get a coach and GM that pick football players and not great athletes with little football skills in the later rounds.
I'd rather hear that he runs a 4.75 but catches everything thrown his way, than he runs a 4.4 and all we need to do is teach him to catch the ball.
Neither are good approaches.
I'm looking, at WR, for undersized and fast guys. Guys who don't fit the "ideal" of WR when it comes to size.
Both these guys are about 5-10 and 180... I'm going FOIA release style... Neither taken in first two rounds...
(redacted) is an extremely productive receiver from a relatively smaller level football program that could use another year in college to continue to develop physically. He is undersized and will initially struggle with the physical aspects of the game at the next level. He generally has lined up out of the slot and would have trouble with his release against some of the physical cornerbacks at the next level if he lines up on the line of scrimmage. He is explosive off the line and will show a good burst out of his speed cuts but needs work on his hard cuts and underneath routes. He has decent hands but it looks like the ball gets big on him at times and he traps too many passes in his body.
STRENGTHS (redacted) has a really nice combination of quickness and speed. Has been extremely productive during his college career. Shows very impressive initial quickness when exploding off the line. Displays good agility as a route-runner and with the ball after the catch.
WEAKNESSES Lacks size. Not tall and does not possess enough bulk at this time. Needs to add strength to more effectively beat press coverage and battled for the ball in the air. Route running skills could use some refinement. Needs to become more consistent catching the ball in a crowd.
(redacted) was the star of an emerging Florida International program. He has had a ton of production there despite his size, and is an athletic mover who has the speed to take the top off a defense. He is good off the line and has fourth-round value as a receiver and return specialist.
STRENGTHS (redacted) is an explosive returner who uses good judgment when fielding the ball. As a receiver he is a deep threat who can create separation when running deep due to his superior long speed. He is a decent route runner who works well out of the slot.
WEAKNESSES (redacted) is undersized and it shows when he blocks in the run game. He has a tough time breaking down and getting hands on a defensive back and using strength to hold on thereafter. He is a deep threat and has production there but is not a reliable short-to-intermediate throwing option.
Okay, okay, okay.... I'll stop being a dick.
