I agree. I think he has it all, and he's a good kid. Not only does he have the skill set, athleticism, explosion...but he just flat out plays. Kind of goes at it with the aproach of "why not right now?"

I think in a couple years he will be looked at as the best WR prospect in a long time. I almost hope we still need a WR when the time comes:-)

Don't have a source, but saw this on another message board. Quotes from Front Office officials and scouts:

Quote:
• “(USC OLT) Matt Kalil is a good, solid player, but tell me who the next-best left tackle is. Cordy Glenn is a guard for me. (Ohio State’s) Mike Adams is soft and doesn’t train. Riley Reiff has everything you want — he’s just not a very good foot athlete. The guy with left tackle feet is (Oklahoma’s) Donald Stephenson. He doesn’t work and doesn’t lift and had to sit out a season for his (issues). There is a big 'miss' factor there with him, but on his talent alone, he could play at a high level.”

• “You don’t expect nose tackles to be good pass rushers, but (Washington’s) Alameda Ta’amu can really push the pocket. You’d like him to refine his hand placement and be more consistent, but he is strong, and he knocks (blockers) off the ball as well as anyone in the draft. He’ll be a good player in the league.”

• “(Iowa State OT) Kelechi Osemele is intelligent and might be able to convince a coach for 2-3 days at an all-star game that he is a good guy, but when you are around him too long, you realize he is full of it. I think he’ll be a right tackle in the league, not a left.”

• “I think (Mississippi OT) Bobby Massie will go somewhere in the top 50. He’s a right tackle only, for me. Would you be excited to pull his card off the board? I wouldn’t be. But I think he will be a starter and, if he picks it up mentally and works at it, will be fairly solid. You can’t lose sight of the fact that almost every team is down offensive linemen. There just are not enough of them.”

• “(Michigan State’s) Edwin Baker looked good at his pro day. I think he’ll go in the fourth round. I would not take him there — I wouldn’t. I think he is a role player in the NFL. He had a better workout than he played. I just think the way the NFL is now, he will play and be in a rotation and has NFL qualities. You see his speed on stretch plays, but he is not a very big guy. He was getting pushed for playing time — that’s why he came out.”

• “(Auburn OT) Brandon Mosley is a tough guy. He gets after it. He’s a good kid … but he’s always going to be limited by his stiffness. He’s not athletic enough to be a left tackle, and as a right tackle, it’s tough to play strong when your hips are so high. You'd like to get him in the fifth (round)."

• “When you evaluate (Georgia’s) Cordy Glenn at left tackle, you have to remember — he was out of shape and overweight. You have to go back to last year (2010) before the strength coaches came in to get a true read on him.”

• “I think (Oklahoma’s) Ronnell Lewis goes in the second, but to me, he’s a 'reach' guy. I wouldn’t touch him there, and he fits what we do.”

• “(Boise State RB) Doug Martin is a tough one to figure out if you look at this year vs. last year. In 2010, he looks like a surefire late first-rounder. If you watch 2011, there are games where he looks like nothing more than a free agent. I don’t see what everyone else is (seeing) on this year’s tape. If you get the player you see last year, you’d be pretty happy. If you get the 2011 version, you might be disappointed.”

• “(LSU DT) Michael Brockers is big, strong and athletic. He just does not get great push in the middle. … To me, he is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. I liked his interview.”

Brockers was the only player that he didnt saybanything negative on. Most of those had a negative tone.

I don't trust scout/front office quotes this close to draft day. Lots of smokescreen ********.

Theyre talking players down too much. You can tell theyre throwing smokescreens up with the negatives they point out. Throwing out cons such as "doesnt train", "he is full of it", pointing out negatives in film two years ago in Gelnn's case. Some sound like legit concerns but those stuck out to me as unusual.
