Me too. This, IMO, was GREAT news today.
Only Keim would trade up for a WR when every draft is stacked at WR.
Even if you REALLY like Waddle you can get Waddle adjacent without the huge expense of trading up.
Elijah Moore, Bateman, Tony etc
Smith must have like 2% body fat at 166...that's incredibly thin. His tooth pick legs are the most worrisome. I just dont see how he's going to be very successful against NFL CB's playing hard press at the line...
Well if multiple teams want to trade down, there may be value in trading up.
I am still very concerned about the CB position. I just can not see Alford as a projected starter. As great as a receiver would be, and living in Mississippi if you are moving up Jamar Chase is the best bet, we have to improve at CB for the defense ti take the next step
My running weight when I ran track in college was 155 lbs at 6’1” and I had 4% body fat.
Now, I’m 195 lbs and let’s just say I am no longer at 4%.
i would think that in the SEC, the moment that D coordinators could figure out that jamming Smith at the line would take him out of the route --- he would have faced non-stop jamming at the line
the SEC in the 19 and 20 drafts had 11 corners taken (not including Alabama) -- so he faced quality
True, but then he isn't playing NFL quality corners every week
Trusting Keim to mortgage our future (because we don't realistically have trade-up ammo in this draft) to pick one player? No. Way. In. H. E. Double. Hockey. Sticks.
But Waddle is a much better prospect. That’s why he’s a top 10-12 pick and those guys are likely 2nd rounders.
However, I wouldn’t trade up for any WR not named Chase.
Btw, the guy Charlie Weis compares Smith to is Marvin Harrison. Harrison was 5’11 and about 179 in his playing days, lighter when entered the league.
I’d take a Marvin Harrison on the Cards.
Is he? I like him but he's been consistently mocked around the mid teens. He's never topped 848 yards and he did that his freshman year.
He's far from the sure thing some people think.
He's not dissimilar to Henry Ruggs from last year and he didn't break 500 yards.
Ruggs is much more a straightline burner
Waddle is more explosive in change in direction
Ruggs was never much of a punt returner, while Waddle is elite in that regard
Those guys may turn out to be better pros but Waddle is the better prospect going into the league when you factor in hands, speed, RAC.
I loved AJ Brown in his draft class. He was my favorite but he wasn’t the top prospect.
