Gotta like this dude's size. It'd be sweet if he came in and made an impact and maybe lit a fire under THomas & Kelly

He's a big 7th rounder. Hell, maybe he's Marques Colston part 2. We can all dream...

This guy likely won't be in the league in a couple years; practice squad fodder most likely, but what do you expect at this point?

Thrash's days may be numbered.

Kind of a steal I guess considering he was projected as a 4th/5th rounder. Would have preferred Jennings

Exactly what I thought bro. Cutting Thrash saves some green too... I think just under $1 million, so possibly enough to allow a nice FA signing.

[I]Weaknesses:
Just average timed speed...Is not overly quick or explosive...Will drop some catchable balls...A severe lack of strength...Doesn't run great routes...Isn't very tough...Questionable instincts and awareness...Does not get a lot of separation ..Didn't play in a pro style offense and is raw. [/I]

LOL...when have you ever heard the phrase "severe lack of strength" in a scouting report. Jeez that made me laugh. What is this kid a couch potato or something?

Could be a suitable replacement for A. Randel El with a year or two in the system. Thrash' days are numbered since we picked up other special teams personnel in free agency. If Thomas and Kelly start to blossom, even more so...!

Check out this review:
[quote]Negatives: Much of his production is due to this offense. Good, not great, straight-line speed. Will be caught from behind by NFL corners. Long-strider who has to build up to it. Lacks the short burst quickness to consistently gain separation against elite cover corners. Sinewy frame that may not withstand NFL punishment.[B] Ball security may be an issue considering his lack of upper body strength.[/B] Isn't the dominant red-zone target his size indicates, due to marginal toughness and physicality in going up for the ball in traffic. Allows too many passes to get into his pads, resulting in some drops.[/quote]


Did we draft Jimmie Walker?

Man, people sure do zero in on the negatives huh.

How about the other side of things:

Strengths:
Excellent height and bulk...Long arms and big hands...Terrific body control and ball skills...Vertical threat who can make plays down the field...Will do some damage after the catch...Decent blocker...Very confident ..Competitive on jump balls...Good athleticism...Productive.

I was going to start a thread titled "All of our picks are going to be busts", but I guess I won't. LOL.

He only got 9 reps @ 225 which is pretty pathetic for an athlete. I know he's not a linebacker or anything, 2nd lowest in the combine @ WR

now maybe bench isn't everything for a receiver but he'll need some upper body mass to take hits and hold onto the ball

apparently his route running and hands are suspect from what I've been reading

I'm sure that we all hope that he does well but immediately jumping on the bandwagon makes him another Colt.
