I would love to see:

AJ Green 2yrs $11M per

Rnd 1: Laviska Shenault

Rnd 4: Bryan Edwards 

 

You then have a WR room with:

Green

Brown

Beasley

Shenault

Edwards

+ McKenzie, Foster, Williams, & Roberts fighting for 2? Spots

What the heck is being filtered when someone types Patriots? 

 

Edit: and why didn't it filter that time?... what the heck? I'm always seeing people whose post includes "Pats*" and never understanding...

That's a lot of investment.. Not a problem, necessarily, but I would assume 2 top end investments (top 4 pick/FA), not 3.

Education requested please.

 

How does South Carolina compare in terms of quality of competition to the Big Dawg college programs?

 

What concerns me is that 3 years ago we traded up in the 2nd round to draft a guy who set receiving records playing for East Carolina.  NCAA Division I football all-time single season leader in receptions,  NCAA Division I football all-time career leader in receptions.  Finalist for 2016 Biletnikoff Award, given annually to the nation's best receiver in college football.  That sounded pretty good at the time, but what played out was that the guy could play relative to his opposition, and when faced with the DBs who had been playing at top college programs and were now in the pros, he couldn't level up.

 

I don't follow college football much, so help me understand if South Carolina would carry the same concerns.

For me anyone coming out of the SEC with good size for their position, athleticism, durability, and good production should be taken ahead of almost anyone else from a different conference with similar numbers and attributes.

You’re probably right. I just wanted to make the group into a real strength. But yea, I would assume no Green is the more likely scenario. Draft one guy in rounds 1-2 and another in rounds 4-5

Is he anything like Deebo Samuel ?   He seems like a stud out of South Carolina just one year ago.

That is the posters manually adding asterisks to the Pats name. It started back during their first cheating scandal, way back when. And folks keep adding *s for each subsequent cheating scandal. So I guess it would be Pats***** by now.

Probably be lucky if Edwards lasts to the 3rd.

 

And I'm guessing they keep 6 WRs again next year.

"...Edwards is leaving South Carolina with an array of school accolades, including: most consecutive games with a reception (48), career receptions (234) and career receiving yards (3,054)."

 

The first thing that comes to mind, though, is "how many of those receptions came in garbage time?"    The Gamecocks were just 4-8 last year and 7-6 the year before.  They typically got beat up like rented mules by the top SEC schools.

Per Drae Harris with the Draft Network:

 

Pros: Big play receiver that brings good athleticism to the position. Good size and strength projects him well as an “X” WR. In the run game he is a strong runner after the catch. Has the physicality to be a good stalk blocker in the run game. In the passing game he is good. Shows strong hands to pluck the ball out of the air. Excels in the short to intermediate area and shows good ability in contested catch situations. He shows some long speed but lacks some separation quickness at the top of the route. Will be a problem for defenders in the red zone due to his physicality and ability in contested catch situations. Also projects with good upside as a returner and core special teamer as well. 

 

Cons: Not a lot of elusiveness in the open field. Doesn’t show a lot of separation quickness against man coverage. Not a great route runner and needs to learn to set up defenders against off man coverage. If he doesn't win with strength against press he may struggle Due to his hips and lack of elite short area agility. Needs to become very consistent at catching the ball away from his frame at ALL times, due to his lack of separation against man. These will become PBUs in the NFL. 

 

(these are similar elusiveness/straight line cons to DK Metcalf as I recall...)

Dude is a stud.... him and Pittman should be targets pick 50-75 range.

 

These dudes ain’t lasting til round 4. These are your big, strong, possession type guys the can run after catch. Great hands and are proven over 4 years. They are seniors.

 

Theyll be at the Senior Bowl. I’m looking forward to seeing Aiyuk, Pittman, Edwards, Van Jefferson, and Mims.... 

 

Last year I was at the Senior practices and it was obvious Deebo Samuels and Terry McClaurin were legit!  Went rounds 2 & 3, you may see 3-4 of those mentioned above gone before round 4.

Can we stop drafting project players based off potential alone 

 

We aren't in year 1 or 2 of our rebuild anymore. It is time to win NOW. the division is up for grabs next season and we need a NFL ready WR

In the first three tables of that article, I saw a lot of drops.  I'm terrified of more drops.

Reminds me a little of someone we’ve traded to the Raiders

I generally agree, but if there’s a guy in the big 10 that dominated against Ohio State and the rest of the conference I’m keen. As long as they perform in big matchups there’s no reason to devalue them.

Thank you Sir. This makes perfect sense, and now I can sleep.

The thing is, there’s so many good receivers this year, and most of them are the big athletic type, that some will fall. On TDN’s big board he’s listed as the #17 Receiver and #105 overall player. That’s a round 4 player. 

You might be right, at the same time I think this class is SO deep at receiver that some are bound to slip.

That’s a good point.... it is deep. Teams may sit on players to overdraft others cause WRs will be there.

 

Im definitely looking at WR in 2nd or 3rd....
