He's a WR. He's been rated the #1 wr prospect on some lists, but I think others have gained on him a lot.

I advocated looking at him if he's available at #21, but the more I hear the more he sounds like D. Howard. The big red flag is that he supposedly weighs 160 lbs. for that reason I don't see Zorn et al wanting to draft him.

HE's not Hester, but Eddie Royal of Va. Tech might be the next ARE. He's a good punt returner & slot reciever. Projected no higher than the 3rd round at this point.

Hester is the best return man ever. There are no Hester's in thsi draft or in any other draft for that matter. I think trying to find one would be a bad idea. You still need to find someone who contribute somewhere else first then returns second.

Yeah I would pay close attention to Royal if he makes it to the 5th round

Chris Johnson im tellin you... ive had the opportunity to watch this guy the past couple years...definately similar speed to hester, and a much better all around offensive player (catching, blocking, ect). If this kid went to the likes of the U he would be a sure 1st rounder. the kid had one of the highest, if not the highest, average of all purpose yards per game, just watch the highlights from the boise st/ecu bowl game and tell me he doesnt have the ability to break loose every time he touches the ball

Re: Is there a Hester in the '08 draft?

Jayson Foster!! Won the 1-aa Payton award @ Georgia southern. hes alot like Johnson (who is also a beast) runs in the 4.2's he is smaller 5'7" 170lbs but (no link) reprtedly is crazy strong for someone his size (350 bench 550 squat) was used often as a option QB so he can take a hit from a big guy... but he is super elusive and has great anticipation i would use a later 3rd on the guy but since we have more pressing needs and no 4th he would be a STEAL in 5-6

YouTube - Jayson Foster 4 Payton
Ive wanted to start a thread on him since not alot of people know about him, but decided that it would come up sooner or later!

Jayson Foster is a converted QB to WR, if he wants to be in the league he's gonna have to get really good at kick returning, so some team picks him up, I think that Chris Johnson could be like Laurance Maroney, start at running back and return kicks, he's got a bright future.

You stole my answer, good job. I agree with you though, he may not be quite as fast as Devin, but he is one hell of a return man.

Edit- He was also one of the most if not "The most" impressive and sound recievers at the combine.

Bad thing about Jackson is that we don't need another sub 5-10" WR.

The title of this thread is ridiculous, there has been one Hester in all of the drafts ever.

thanks. I was quite surprised at the combine that Royal ran a 4.39. I never thought he was that fast cause he doesn't get much separation from dbs usually. Then again, Glennon was always late w/his throws. Royal's combine workout may have inflated his draft stock a bit, but he's smart + well respected & liked. A good character guy no doubt.

the more I think about it the more I'd love to see Royal w/the Skins. I know he's only 5'10, but I could see him filling in for moss on the outside or ARE in the slot & returning punts/playing coverage on spec. teams. I'd also love to see one of our other hokie wideouts here, Morgan or Harper. They're both big late round guys & might be worth a look if they really want to boost the competition for those last wr spots.
