Best bet terms I've seen in a while. Are they allowed to use the official mdb gif in replies?

What's your point? ACL tears are tough as well but you keep mentioning Jaq Smith as a vital player we can count on going forward.

Huh? I'm just content with him as a 4th end as opposed to burning number 19 on the position.

DJ tweeted that Mike Williams ran a 4.58 at his pro day. I'll round up to a 4.6. Slightly disappointing. I think there's a chance he ends up being the 3rd WR taken. Can't imagine him falling past the Titans at 18 though assuming they go D with pick #5.

Hopkins is much smaller, better route runner, and better RAC, he and Williams don't seem like the same type of WR when I watch them play.

Williams is big boy at 6'4 220lbs. That is slightly smaller than Evans, but I think they 'win' in similar ways in that they make their money with contested catches and very dangerous in the red zone. Both will move the chains alot but not offer much RAC.

I always believed Hopkins to be 6'2" and thought Williams measured 6'3". My mistake there. Evans could be the best comp.

Did you not watch Williams play? He's about 4.6 on tape. Speed is not his game. I've said Corey Davis is the more complete WR and there is a good chance he goes first. I still think Williams goes before Ross.

Mike Williams kind of reminds me of Keyshawn. Big, strong, rarely gets great separation but will win most of the contested passes.

He's a bit more of a downfield guy than Keyshawn.

NFL network compared him to Dez, so that's something.

ESPN Jaguars reporter Michael DiRocco told Next Level Fantasy's Mike Clay the Jaguars will target a running back in the top half of the draft.


Jags will draft RB from LSU

Donta Foreman and Texas have their Pro Day today.

Foreman in the 2nd is what I'm hoping for, so kinda want him to run a sub 4.5 but also kinda don't lol

I disagree w/ teh Dez Bryant comp. Dez was/is an elite RAC guy and open field runner and was a dominate punt returner in college and early in his NFL career.

For all the talents Mike Williams has, his RAC and open field running has never reminded me of Dez Bryant.

I like the Keyshawn comp, I think Williams is better athlete. But both 'win' the same way.

So it's being reported that Tabor ran 4.73 at the UF pro day. Which is worse than the 4.62 at the combine.

He's a guy that plays football better than he tests for sure, but this brings legit concerns about his long speed and ability to close space vs NFL WRs.

I'd be shocked if he goes day 1 at this point.

I agree. Williams is way more Keyshawn. Dez is a beast with the ball in his hands. No coach is going to ask Williams to do that.

Again, he does not know how to run the 40. So what?? Tape doesn't lie.

Who's he covering in the tape though? Rich Eisen?

4.41-4.45 for Foreman at 234lbs. Kiss the idea of Foreman at 50 goodbye...

I was trying to subtly point out that tape can be misleading at CB position, but congrats on having yet another post go over your head.

I don't disagree. Just saying that 4.6-4.7 CBs don't get drafted on day 1 ever. Tabor will be a steal for someone on day 2.
