Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects (Scene 2)

I thought this was a interesting comment about RB's and there ability to make money in the NFL. came from Peter Kings mail bag:

"I think with all of the running-back holdouts who don't like being franchise-tagged (Ray Rice, Matt Forte), we now know the real losers of the 2011 CBA: running backs. Think about it: Let's say you are a 22-year-old first round pick. Your salary is "slotted" based on your draft position, no matter how special you may be. So you play out your four-year deal, and then the franchise can exercise the option for a 5th year. Now you're a 27-year-old RB. If you are still productive, the team can franchise you. After that, you're a 28-year-old free agent RB with 6 years and, let's say, 1,500 carries under your belt (250 carries a year for six years). What team is going to give a 28-year-old RB with 1,500-plus carries a long-term contract? After your four-year rookie deal, you are basically playing consecutive seasons on one-year deals (which means very little security in the event of a serious injury).''

On a side note, is it too late to be eligible for the draft? LOL.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects (Scene 2)

After watching this video all I can say is wow. I hope our scouting team gave this kid a look. He has some serious potential as a slot receiver if he can put on a little weight and be durable.

He is 5'10" and weighs 161. He went to a D3 school.

* EDIT: He ran his 40 in 4.31, had a vertical of 44", 6.67 in the 3-cone drill, and a blazing 3.76 in the short shuttle.

I imagine there is a scramble for a trade for the #253 spot. lol. I think the NFL network needs to fly her in and have her introduce #253. lol.

Who knows maybe the network brings both on the network together and introduces them to each other then sends them out for a night. lol. I hope the player doesn't have a problem kissing and telling. lol.

Parcells was singing his praises last night.

Sounds like a cousin of Brandon Banks.

Except he's taller and it's believed that he could safely put on 20 pounds on his frame and could actually be used as a wide receiver, unlike banks.

He could potentially be an excellent slot receiver and do just fine. He may be short but that vertical just about squashes those concerns for me. He could do just fine with some proper coaching.

The cherry on top is that he isn't slated to go until the 6th or 7th round.

Looks like a nice prospect needed to see him catch.

Perhaps the Jets should just get rid of the Quarterback and solely play the RB wildcat... or just start Tebow...
