33 tds in two years.   

 

I’m not sure I understand your point of view here.  

He’s more raw than Foster was last year, and Foster didn’t originally make the 53 in a weaker WR room. Sills is going to need time to develop, whether it’s 2 months or 2 years.... I just don’t see him making the roster yet. Trying to stash him on the PS will only give every other team in the league the opportunity to sign him.  I suppose he can make the team if Williams shows no changes in character off the field...

I watched the tape and the guy has no short range burst. Looks like he’s stuck in the mud when he tries to take off.

He can't get off of press coverage either. See the Senior Bowl practices. Yet, Damarkus Lodge was still out there. The one thing the NWO could do was get off of press.

Lodge had just as many question marks as Sills, without the production.    Production matters to some GMs and coaches more than potential...

How was it and how did it compare to other host cities? Looked like a massive party scene? 

It was a massive party. The fans were loving it.

 

Nashville did an impressive job with having that entire area blocked off from all traffic. Smart move by putting the NFL Experience inside Nissan Stadium and keeping it separate from the draft.

 

I was staying at a place right next to the stadium, so I didn't have to worry about driving. Which was good, because I heard that traffic was a pain. Couple that with the other weekend events going on at the same time.

 

I would say that of all the cities that had previously hosted, Nashville & Dallas did it the best. Having it all centralized whereas Chicago & Philadelphia were spread out all over the place.

 

Where Nashville failed, and this is mostly the NFL's fault, was the actual draft. They had this huge constructed amphitheater constructed, but only a handful of fans could sit in it.

 

It would be unfair to compare it to Dallas, because that was in the stadium, but the makeshift amphitheater in Philadelphia was way better than this.

 

They had bleachers outside with no covering, so I got rained on the whole first night. Also they had a live band playing in between picks and the music was so loud that you couldn't talk to anyone. I get what the NFL was trying to do, and they are not trying to appeal to the real draft fans like me.

 

On Day 3 and thanks to @Jamie Nails i was able to sit with the fans in the inner circle. Which was the best time I had.

 

Overall, great job by Nashville as a host city, poor job by the NFL for not having a bigger are for fans to sit and watch the draft.

 

See you in Las Vegas!

125 catches, 1966 yards, 33td in 2 years of college. They guy proved he could get open and was a threat at the college level. Arm chair film reviewers settle down with the bs.. lol That said, whether that translates to the pros we shall see. Hes still pretty new to the position. Some pro level coaching could help him take off, or the nfl game may prove to be too big for him. 🍿

Sills will be selling insurance by July.

 

No, he won't. You can't teach size and put that together with soft hands and good body control and teams will- at least - be willing to put him on the practice squad and let him learn the position for the next couple of years.

All he needs to be is a jump ball specialist in the red zone.

This is fine

 

Good for him there is actually 3 pass catching targets directly in front of him (not counting Zay)

 

Its a different situation this year.

I was watching West Virginia vs Texas Tech last night on ESPN U. One of the things that I was surprised at watching Sill exclusively is how he blocked down field. He was pesky and pissing defenders off. I didn't see him struggling to get off press. I thought his initial steps and movements were okay, but need refinement, but he's a fun guy to watch. He goes up to get the ball and contorts his body to make good catches. He didn't get the ball a ton in this game, so I did enjoy watching him do some dirty work. You can tell how much he loves the game and loves his teammates as he wasn't getting many touches but ran his routes hard and was constantly congratulating his teammates. He also seems like a bit of a trash talker like Josh Allen. He honestly reminded me of Robert Woods a bit with the way he plays. I don't know if he makes it, but I like his game. A lot of people see tall, skinny, former quarterback and assume the guy can't play. This guy can ball. He has a chance.

Except Lebron was actually generational at his position lol

 

i kid ... I think he is a old school football player who can make an impact ... round 4 I say yes

 

...so then when "Lebron" runs routes, do we say he's "traveling" and get hit with a 15 yarder?....just askin'.....

It’s funny , Lebron  wasn’t even a prodigy at 12-13... he came onto the stage big at the abcd camp going into his JR year where he knocked off #1 player Lenny Cooke who was thought of as “the next big thing”

He has good hands and size. He has some nifty footwork coming off the line. If he can develop some nasty with his hands like the best WR in football (DeAndre Hopkins) then he might really be something.

I mean maybe thats when SI and other national publications came onto James, but his high school prep team had to play home games at U of Akron arena because of ticket demands to see him play as a freshman, so he was indeed a prodigy, maybe not at 12 lol, but who is?

Haven’t we learned our lesson around here about being excited about an UDFA WR?

We are fans and this is the kind of stuff we get excited about this time of year! We prefer to postpone our likely disappointment until later in the season. However, you can feel free to start feeling disappointed now if you like.

Lol the meltdown will be priceless though if him or some of the board draft gurus favorites get cut and are claimed by another team. We have multiple Reily loved kind of players this offseason. 

Not knocking Sills he has some potential but all 32 teams know something we didn’t that’s why he wasn’t drafted and his chances of making the team are very slim.

There is just something about UDFA WRs man.  Guys that aren't even worth a draft pick somehow become mortal locks to make the team.

Who doesn' t like to root for the underdog!? That's what buffalo is all about. Sure he prob doesn't make it, but if he does, he will instantly be a fan favorite.

Not for nothing but we just had an UDFA WR last year who was widely mocked in the 1st Round of various "NFL Re-Drafts" that followed the season.
