Very impressive. Ran faster than I'd think and was incredibly intelligent and well spoken in his interview. He mentioned that we spoke to him. This place would crap their pants if we took a corner with our first pick. If we traded back I wouldn't mind him in the teens, though.

He is a slow mans Dwill, that is who he reminded me of. Great Ball skills, but not that fast. 4.5 (not slow, but not great speed either). He will be an early 2nd rouner IMO

What was his shuttle time? And D-wil was a mid second rounder. You think he drops that far?

Alphonso will be a good player I think. I wouldnt mind him late in the first and that way we can trade back and get Barwin in the earl 2nd maybe..

Probably not. He seems to be one of the top guys in a fairly average DB class. I think he goes in the early 2nd.

What about Sean Smith, don't you think this guy is going to go earlier then Alphonso with his size? the dude is big and can move.

It is hard to pull the trigger on a CB that small in the first round, because they hardly ever project to playing the #1 CB. They can still be a top level #2 CB, but first rounders should be projected to be the top CB on a team for the most part.

That being said, the kid can ball. His tape is solid, his ball skills are solid, and he can tackle in space. I think teams will worry about larger WR's in coverage and blocking though and while his skills are good, his lack of size could make him go a little further down the draft than his skills indicate. So, he could be a value pickup for a team with a great #1 CB.

Sean Smith is projected as a FS as far as i have ever seen. He will be long gone by midway through the 2nd. Just my 2 cents on him.

That's what I'm seeing too. I wouldn't mind Sean Smith on the team, though - even if he is a dirty Utard.

I think he might be the best CB in this draft. He has the skills and if you watch him he did match up well against bigger ACC WR during his career at WF.

He covered Calvin Johnson.

Haha... damn, no love for the Utes?

McDaniels is a Belicheat disciple. Belicheat never divulges any information on who he will draft. for the most part we can probably expect our draft picks to continue to be guys who never spoke with us.

no way we draft this guy.
