Default Any Love for Ramses Barden?

I was just remembering this guy with the combine approaching. I watched him in the State farm College Skills Competition and thought he was a TE or D-End or something - the due is just a monster. I think he is 6'6" and about 230 lbs.

Anyway, I don't know if he will be at the combine, but watch this kid, he's a freak. He is kind of like B-Marsh, but bigger. He can sky for the jump ball, and can break tackles.

Anyone follow Ramses Barden from Cal Poly?

He did nothing at the Senior Bowl and will probably be a project in the NFL, but he has the ability to be very good.

Id take a late round flyer on him. He may shoot up the board at the combine though.

Does anyone have an idea of the type of wr McDaniels might be looking for? I can't really see a pattern in the Pats receivers. The pats don't go all small fast receivers like the colts (besides Welker), but they don't go for west coast possesion recievers either, at least as far as I can tell. I was looking at Barden, but I have no idea what to look for in terms of the new system.

i think he could be a really good receiver, but he is still a little raw, but his measurables are going to end up making him a 4th rounder.

the Pats don't really have a set type of receivers they prefer that i have noticed, in my eyes they just like hard workers who don't drop the ball.

He's working out in L.A. at Elite Athletics with my good friend Travelle Gaines. Check out our Senior Bowl reports for more info! http://draftguys.com

Greg Lee came in as an injury replacement at the Senior Bowl and immediately looked better. Ramses just didn't fight for the ball enough, plus he is not sudden off the line or in and out of his breaks.

I see him as a 4th round pick right now, and a good one at that. If you have time and patience with him I think he can become a very dangerous player. He clearly has excellent physical and athletic ability, if he gets his hands and head into the game he can be a weapon, on the other hand there is always a question mark with guys like this because they have to improve very quickly to not wash out.

did anyone ever stop and think that maybe McDaniels might not clone the Pats to a T?

I expect will see a system similar to what was run out of Carolina and NE in the passing game, with mix of Denver ZBS.

I see him as another Marshall. I think he has chance to be that good.

i was thinking our offense would be more of a power running like in Carolina, with a wide open passing game.

basically i envision something more in line with our passing game last season combined with Carolina style power running in the Broncos ZBS.

Well I don't see many other places to look for a clue to what McDaniels looks for in a receiver. If you have any ideas other then "we will see" I would love to hear it.

Saw him in person a few years ago when Cal Poly came up to play NDSU. He is gigantic. He'd be a fantastic redzone target. Definitely a project though.
