Would you want Marcus Simms thrown into the WR mix?

Recommended Posts

With the Supplemental Draft coming up there are two prospects that are expected to be drafted anywhere from the 2-4 round range.

 

WR Marcus Simms, West Virginia 

DB Jalen Thompson, Washington State

 

DB Bryant Perry, St. Francis

LB Shyheim Cullen, Syracuse.............. I am not so sure about.

 

Any interest in any of these kids?

Supplemental draft is a joke in my opinion. I wouldn’t give up a pick for any of those mentioned

what happens if none of them are picked? do they then automatically become free agents?

We already have enough bodies like that at the wr/flanker spots.we had 13 on the roster last summer.

These guys need preseason game reps...I would limit the crew to ten..no more.

Lack of reps has been no ones problem

 

10 guys filling 6 slots plus a PS spot probably is a pretty thin ratio

Yes I believe so

...if a guy goes undrafted and is not a UDFA pickup, seems like the message is pretty clear IMO.....IF I understand the process correctly...........

These are guys who were not in the draft but are now ineligible to play college ball next season.

None, not very special.  They would be low on the depth chart and long shots to make the team.  Save the picks for next year.

Simms had decent speed.  He has average size...The circumstances  surrounding his departure from WVU certainly don't scream "team first guy."  Sixteen teams attended his pro day.  Buffalo was among the missing.  Add it all together and the prospects for Buffalo participating in the supplemental draft for Simms amount to "fat chance."

I could see persuading myself that one of these guys is no worse than whomever I would get in April 2020 with my 7th round pick, and if he's any good I get help now instead of next year.  But I'm still not convinced I'd pull the trigger.

Yeah, it would have sucked to have Josh Gordon a couple of years or Cris Carter.

 

the main guy they said will go highest is the safety from WSU.

I had to look but since like ‘77 you nailed basically the two players who did anything from that draft. It’s basically a giant waste of time.

To be fair it’s what like 1 maybe 2 guys a year if any? You pick 45 day 3 draft picks out of a hat and you won’t hit too many big either

Not the WR but I definitely would look at 

 

DB Jalen Thompson, Washington State, would have been a top pick safety/nickle hybrid.  Our safety depth IMO is concerning.

"Thompson would have been drafted in the top half of the draft if he would have come out this year, but in a deep safety class, he chose to potentially rise to the top of the next year’s class."

 

Yeah i would take a shot on this one.

The draft is 1:00 today I think.  I would use a 4th on Thompson- we could use Safety depth competition.  My guess though is some teams drafts him in 3rd

I wouldn't call it concerning , I think Bush is quality depth and a capable starter and Neal has promise and I really like the rookie we picked up based on research I've done. Obviously there's going to be a drop off from Hyde / Poyer but they've played as possibly the best tandem past 2 years
