    Here's another:

    And my personal favorite:

    The guy's a warrior. The second really is a great example of why people compare him to TO. Their body structure and movement is nearly identical.

    Very reminiscent of Michael Irvin as if he developed his style by watching Irvin play. He plays very big on the field. If he has anywhere near the fire Michael had, I would draft him.

    Just watching how tough he runs, and seeing guys bounce off him - this is the guy we need in the first. I'm thinking it's gonna happen.

    Watch the video dude. He's not too slow. He ran a 4.4 and 4.49 at his Pro day. That's plenty fast for a guy his size. Plus, the guy can block. Whew can he block.

    I like the way he catches the ball w/ his hands and also his blocking ability. I too, thought he looked a bit on the slow side, but I think he would be a good replacement for T.O. Who was that WR from LSU that (I think) the Steelers drafted a couple of years ago? He was a smaller guy, but very fast. How has he done in the league?...

    Good call. I actually was thinking TO because of the way he plays out of the slot and runs those crossing patterns. He probably isn't as fast as TO though. He is faster than Irvin.

    I'm just so wary of these oversized WRs that are slow... Everyone says "Next Michael Irvin" when usually they are the next Michael Jenkins.

    And before anyone quotes the 40 time, I don't care about those, especially from Pro Days. He doesn't look fast at all in the video.

    (Sorry for the redundancy if anyone saw nearly the exact same quote at another board. ;))

    They drafted Santonio Holmes out of Ohio State last year. Only 1st rounder. I'd say he had a pretty decent year - 800+ yards - which is pretty goof for a first year WR.

    The blocking and catching with the hands caught my attention too.

    What video are you watching? All I see is him breaking tackles and running away from people. I guess there are no example of him just running fly patterns and beating people, but look at the cushion some of these corners are giving him.

    I do realize Scott Wright criticized him for his speed on his board, but if you look at the Senior Bowl stuff, he drew rave reviews. Noone could cover the guy. He had 46 TDs in 46 games played at LSU. That's pretty good work.

    college football is more of an offensive game than pro football

    I think this guy could become a big time possession receiver. I like him over Meacham, Ginn, and Jarrett. Speedy receivers are easier to come by than possession receivers. Complement him with a speedy guy and you would have a pretty good receiving combo. I'm not sure he will be around at #22 though.

    Well, either he or Meachem will be available I think. If not, there is also Sidney Rice, but I really would prefer someone else at that point or maybe a trade down.

    He's quite a bit bigger than Crayton. He's 2 inches and about 16 lbs bigger. Crayton seems to gumby his way out of tackles. Bowe seems like he knocks you over. Guess that may change in the Pros. I also think Bowe's probably faster than Crayton, but I'm not positive. I'll try to find Crayton's combine numbers.

    By the way, I'm a big Crayton fan and think he's the #2 of the future. I just think there are definitely better guys out there.


    EDIT - Crayton wasn't invited to the combine. Still looking...

    EDIT2 - Crayton was 4.52 and 4.58 in the 40. Yeah, Bowe is bigger and faster.

    For the others that think he's slow, checkout the play at 0:46 on this highlight reel:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSvWf9-EN_g

    Bowe is standing on the 32-1/2 yard line when the play starts at just before the 0:46 marker. He starts his route fast. At the 20 yard line he slows up as if to run an out route or a corner route, but quickly cuts back in to run a post. Russell throws the ball right at the 0:48 mark. At that point, Bowe slows his route (because the ball is thrown behind him), and crosses the goalline while catching the ball at the 0:50 market -- while the deep safety is several steps behind.

    Thus, he ran about a 30-35 yard route, in which he intentionally slows to 1/2 (or 3/4) speed on two separate occasions, in just over 4 seconds, leaving the deep safety bewildered and abused. That's not slow.

    If that's not enough, check out the play at 1:33. You won't see Keyshawn or the like making these types of plays.

    Like the idea of a possession receiver comin in to back up TO and keep him on his toes, he cant make too much of a fuss if he knows that his future replacement is on the sideline everygame just waiting to make an impact.
    And hes fast just blows by a couple of corners on some plays.

    ALso I agree with some of the other posts big time possession go-to receivers are the core to a good passing game rather than speedy guys who can stretch the field. He runs tough and seems to have quite crisp routes for a big guy wouldnt mind seeing him on draft day if we dont go Defence AGAIN.
