Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
Possible later round wr to look at, he was hurt all this year but his jr year he had 12tds. He's got great size(6'5 219), maybe a little on the slow side. But with questions at wr for us he might be a guy to look at in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th round. Anyone know more about him??

I guess he's ranked higher then i thought. Do we take a wr with our 1st rounder, probably not.

a big physical reciever and he is not on the slow side he is not Santana Moss but he is not Larry Fitzgerald either

i watched a few longhorn games, since i live in texas. he seems to have good hands. not overly fast. he breaks quite a few tackles. as far as i can tell he has a great attitude.

Nothing wrong with this thread. It's specific to Sweed

rather try dj hall instead.... WRs are much safer in FA though, and a guy like walker CJ etc would be a better idea (imo). I wouldn't take sweed in the first.

we need a stud there, or at least a clear #1 to help explode moss's stats, or its not worth it. having 14 #2s doesn't help us... it HAS to be a guy near or better than moss as far as talent (with less hamstring issues).

My buddy goes to UT and I asked him about Sweed (He's hardcore into their sports) he said stay clear of him. Ill take his word on this guy.

I wouldn't mind seeing us taking another WR in the draft, but I would be kind of pissed if we did so with our first pick. We have more pressing needs along the lines and in the secondary.

personally -- I think we take the best stud DE or WR available in the first -- then toss everything we have into the offensive line and defensive line (to a lesser extent). I'd also be okay with a safety at that spot. I guess what I'm saying: 1st overall pick take the best player on the board nearly regardless of position (minus RB or something), and then build the lines.

I agree. I started a bowl game thread the very day that Texas was playing its game mainly because of Sweed. He has a wrist injury, but he had a good jr. year. He's been on scouts, inc. big board for months.

I like this guy, size & avg. speed I believe - 4.55. On the flip side, I think the word on him is he's shown mainly potential rather than production at texas.

I live in Austin and have seen Sweed play the past couple of years. He can play and play well under the right circumstances. He broke his wrist early this year and decided to have surgery to clear up the problem so he would be ready for the combines.

I think he goes 2nd or 3rd round and if we are lucky enough to get him he would fit in nicely under the current offensive scheme. Good team player, good character guy and he can catch the ball!

4.55 is really slow :/ i don't really see anything from the games i watched to come close to wanting to throw a first round pick at him.

Re: Limas Sweed Wr Texas
 
Mel Kiper ranks him really high though, putting him at number 14 so it seems like it would be hard for us to get him unless things change in the near future.
