Difference is Aldrick Robinson didn't return many kicks in college and he ran a 4.39 if I am not mistaken.

Yep, that guy is a great player. He is somewhat injury prone though according to my draft magazines. But to me he's a middle-class man's DeSean Jackson. He fits 2 needs in one though with a slot WR and Return Man.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects (Scene 2)

Robinson muffed 2 punts in preseason and was never put back at returner, but regardless, slot WR and returner need to be addressed. As many have mentioned, T.Y. Hilton or Joe Adams fill 2 needs (slot WR and returner). Both Adams and Hilton are upgrades over Robinson, Austin, and Banks (IMO)... Lastly, if we we're so confident in our own slot WR's/RS (Banks, Austin, Robinson), then why did we aggressively pursue E. Royal in FA? Wouldn't shock me at all if we selected Adams or Hilton with one of our 4th round picks, and I'm hoping we do.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects (Scene 2)

Anyone else been researching Robert Turbin? Despite his 2010 injury he's been very productive and has become a sleeper mid-round pick. I know we have Helu and Royster but we're probably gonna draft another RB. 5'10" 222lbs with deceptive speed. Could be a good compliment to Helu and Royster.

I kept telling myself I was going to watch the games that Royster had solid production. He didn't leave the impression on me that Helu did so, I think more competition is needed.

Helu I think will be a consistent 1,000 yard rusher. Royster will be a good backup IMO, if we added LaMichael James or Robert Turbin or Chris Polk we would have a deep backfield.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects (Scene 2)

Guys, I'm really worried we've done nothing to address the Offensive Linebacker position. I mean who's even our starter??!!

Kellen Clemens is our offensive linebacker. Horse collar FTW.
