Would be a nice add. Kid has soft hands. I remember watching some of his games leading up to the Cuse/WVU bowl game. Still don't understand why Grier sat out. Did he think he was a 1st round lock or something? He possibly could have played himself into rounds 1 or 2 with a nice performance. I just remember thinking that was an odd decision. 

I think Grier didn’t want to get hurt.  But he was never going to be a top pick so I hope he didn’t think that.

You really are comfortable with our receiving core because I’m not?  We have a very low end 2 (Brown) and a bunch of 3 & 4s.  I mean you could hope Foster or Jones step up but that’s pretty risky thinking. We need a real number 1 type or at least one with size.  

 

perhaps, however all these line investments should be expect to result in a better running game and some extra time on drop backs. 

 

Both should help the WRs look better than they have.

USC signed a 13 year old?

 

Read the story.  Kiffin recruited him and he verbally committed to USC at like 13 and it was big news.

When you read that story, it just screams a McDermott process guy. Amazing. Hope he does well wherever he ends up.

I don't really get it at 13 what did they like how he played QB against other 13 year olds and then look at his dad and go yeah he'll be tall enough.

He was playing against kids much older than him and was dominating.  Still, do agree it’s a little weird to recruit so early, but that’s why it was so big because it never happened before.

would like him or Butler.  Need a taller WR.  The guy is a worker also, and has a decently high ceiling.

Yeah that's pretty much what I gathered, but I thought that was a thing for mainly high 1st round guys. I just looked it up and it's becoming  a way more common thing to do. Day 2 and 3 guys doing it now. I get it. But I think unless your a lock to go top 15, I think it'd be smarter to play. I think a nice game can help your stock than a bad game can hurt it. But if you're a fringe round 1/2 guy, it will most likely drop your stock some.  I know most of the guys are playing for that second contract, but the pay scale for 1st round picks and 3rd round picks is still millions of dollars. Thoughts?

2 things happened...Kiffin was fired before he was old enough to play there and he got hurt and lost his accuracy from it.

Just on measurables, he would be a project that would finish out what we need in a receiver corps. 

 

Brown and Foster are nice Deep ball burners, and Beasley is one of the best posession receivers in the game right now IMHO but we still dont have that lockdown #1.

 

It would be a project, but I would be worth a sixth or even better a 7th.

I am in disbelief that he has lasted to this point. Measurables, intangibles and production. What am I missing?

Except all the “real” talent evaluators had him projected to be drafted too...so there’s that.

You mean prognosticators. The real talent evaluators are currently employed by NFL teams...except for Mayock. That guy drafts like he is still on NFLN and can surprise people with his picks with no ramifications..
