Mark my words, Niles Paul will make the team before Brandon Banks.
I was making the list based what I have seen. I have not seen Niles Paul play in the NFL. I am not sure if he will be a keeper or another Malcolm Kelly = a lot of potential and talent and not much heart. Niles has to earn it.
I should have followed the same theory on Hankerson.

1.) Not when I'm ranking WRs based on their talent level at PLAYING WR. Moss can return punts for TDs too, but I'm not looking at that.

2.) That would be the ideal scenario. He can't possibly stay healthy all year and honestly, we have enough depth that we do not need him. Getting anything for him will be a great deal for us, but I highly doubt that will happen.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

I'd go
Moss
Hankerson
Kelly
AA
Austin
Rookies
Banks

Kelly was kept on IR for a reason. He came to every practice while he was injured i say knowing the offense and working with Beck puts him at an advantage. Health i believe is his only issue.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

THe question is totally moot at this point. We have an enormous problem at QB, so who gives a rats if Kelly makes the squad or not!! Why do we keep hanging on to our new Taylor Jacobs? We kept that guy on the roster to only hope he would get healthy and be a stud, never happened. I hope all these Wrs we drafted this season make the team. They were solid picks to me at the time and aren't smallish guys like Banks or Austin. Those guys are fast, but they don't have any meat on them bones, and will get nailed eventually. We need physical players in the NFC East, not walking injuries waiting to happen.

I agree, we drafted some Wrs that are physical and have great hands. Banks and Austin are just too small to take a pounding from NFC East DBs or OLBs.

Mark my words, Niles Paul will make the team before Brandon Banks.
I have marked and weighed your words and found them wanting.

Banks has already made the team before Niles even got a trial because not many people can do what Banks does at the Pros. Even if Niles was exceptional in college he won't unseat Banks due to speed.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

I don't know that Niles Paul is a threat to Banks so much as Aldrick Robinson is. Banks is borderline to make the roster right now, and I know the whole nightclub/stabbing incident didn't go over so well with the coaches and front office.

Ultimately, I think he makes the final roster but it'll be close

BB will break a big return or two in the preseason and all will be forgotten.
