    Could he be a RB instead of a WR?

    I think it would be an easier transition for him.

    I don't think he has the build of an every down runner. 6 foot 197 lbs just won't cut it in the NFL.

    Maybe as a scat back, however, he hasn't shown much in terms of natural receiving skills.

    I think he is a lot like Hester. He doesnt have a position, but is so athletic he can still make things happen if you put him in the right situations.

    He can be a true flex player like Percy Harvin.

    That's what made me think that RB might be a better fit. He could continue to train as a receiver also.

    Either way, I wouldn't take him before the 5th.

    ........I've watched him weekly for the last 4 seasons and everything you said is spot on. Just a myth created by the UM hype machine. Kid is vastly overrated. Speed and speed only won't get you much in the NFL. Worst of all, he's fragile..constantly was banged up.:rolleyes:
