Re: 3:10 to Jordy-ville!

I personally like the idea of taking the best D-Lineman (or Brandon Albert) in the first round and then taking the best O-Lineman OR CB/SS in the second. There will still be a quality WR available in the third.

For instance, Jerome Simpson may be available in the 5th and he is a BEAST. A little raw, but his combine numbers are amazing. Especially his vertical leap of 41". Could be this year's Colsten.

Bottomline- WR's are TOO risky to go after in the first round. Especially this year.

If you want super smart and can run really fast, look no further than this guy:



Please don't make me go into further explanation for why this thread should be mocked.

At this rate Jerome Simpson is poised to go from the late 2nd to the early 3rd. If we're lucky he'll slip to the bottom of the third but he won't be available in the 5th, and you can quote me on that. Otherwise I will send you a hallmark card with $5, if he goes in the 5th.

Also speaking of the 5th, McShay and Kiper are both predicting that Albert has a strong chance of going 5th overall to the Chiefs and if not them then the Patriots or the Ravens will take him. If he falls past that point then he won't get past the Texans at 18. I know McShay and Kiper aren't always right, but from my experience they don't put themselves into a corner by speaking so strongly about a possiblity unless they know it's likely.

Bout time someone sees the light!

But seriously, the kid will be a great, hard-workinj, and trouble free Redskin for years to come.

THIS IS THE REAL #27. MAYBE AGENT 0027? LOL!


Jordy Nelson
WR | (6'2", 217, 4.509) | KANSAS STATE

Scouts Grade: 84
View by: Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History
You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.

Strengths: Is a big, strong receiver. Big target with extremely reliable hands. Consistently catches the ball thrown over his head, can pluck on the run effortlessly and does a great job of securing the ball in traffic. Not afraid to go over the middle. He has functional speed for his size. Most impressive is his ability to get in and out of breaks so quickly, especially for a bigger receiver. Displayed much better initial quickness and burst as a senior than he had in previous seasons. He runs crisp routes. Converted high school quarterback, shows a great feel for running routes, finding soft spots in zone and coming back to his quarterbacks when initial play has broken down. Very tough, competitive runner after the catch. Also shows excellent vision to navigate through traffic  both after the catch and in the return game. Will lower his shoulder and drag smaller DB's for extra few yards at the end of the play. Continues to improve with experience. High character player and hard worker.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal top-end speed. Is not going to consistently get over the top of man-coverage as a vertical route runner. Runs hard and shows good vision but not overly elusive and doesn't display the second-gear necessary to run away from NFL defenders. Needs to improve technique and overall consistency as a blocker.

Overall: Nelson redshirted in 2003 and didn't see any action as a defensive back in 2004. He moved to wide receiver in 2005, appearing in 24 games (20 starts) over his sophomore and junior seasons (2005-'06). He had 84 receptions for 1,216 yards (14.5 average) and nine touchdowns during that span. Nelson was slowed by a knee injury in '06 but wouldn't sit out any games. Nelson was sensational as a senior, delivering 10.2 receptions for 133.4 receiving yards per game (both second in the nation) and 155.3 all-purpose yards per game (20th). His 2007 totals: 122 catches for 1,606 yards and 11 touchdowns; five punt returns for 264 yards (52.8 average) and two scores; and two passing TDs (on four attempts) for 45 yards. Nelson capped off a ridiculously productive senior season with a strong showing at the Senior Bowl. While he lacks elite speed and athleticism, Nelson is quicker than people seem to think and he simply knows how to separate and make plays. He will likely slip to the third round of the upcoming draft but it wouldn't shock us if Nelson spends 10-plus productive seasons in the NFL as a possession No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

Re: 3:10 to Jordy-ville!

Im telling you guys, you are gonna wish we drafted him if we don't pick him up. If we pick a WR int he first then it wouldn't matter anymore, but if we don't we need to target him in the 2nd for sure! Thats if we were smart.

Either way, we need a WR in the first day (2 rounds this year), so how ever you wanna play it, it needs to be that we either take a WR in the 1st or take Jordy Nelson somewhere in the 2nd. Period.

I've got a headache. I think it's from being beat over the head with Jordy Nelson.
