    I was rumbling through some draft junk and I came across this 4th round steal in the draft. The kid is amazing and under the radar I think. The kid is like a walking superman, he can catch, run, kick, lettered in 4 sports, ran track and field, has athletic parents/ His Uncle played in the NFL.

    I don't think he's ready to step in today, but with about 15 pounds over the next year and some serious coaching, he could be the next Randy Moss type (with Heart) This just shows his athletic ability (RAW THAT IS) he's projected to go in the 4th round, I would take him in the late 3rd just to make sure I get him.

    It still gives you the flexability to sign Tackles and an ILB and FS even before you get to him. BTW, if we don't get Vinatieri, the kid can also kick.
    Here is his "BIO"

    We haven't developed a WR prospect since Michael Irvin although Crayton may change that if he can stay healthy. I would love for us to take a chance on a guy like that and see it pan out for us like it seems to for other teams.

    Don't know much about him but he sounds like an Ashley Lelie to me.

    It just doesn't seem like a big risk for us. Plus the upside is awesome.

    last year's draft, dallas should have got jerome mathis, parcells clocked him at 4.25 during the 40 yard draft. look at him now, pro bowl on his rookie year

    Jonathan Orr from Wisconsin seems to be similar prospect. Does anyone know anything about him? I agree with main theory though: It would be nice to get a good developmental receiver in the 3rd or 4th round this year (especially since Crayton has had some struggles coming back from surgery).
    Another low cost free agent out there with some upside is Tim Carter. Anyone have him thoughts on him?

    mathis made the pro bowl as a return guy. averaged about 4 yds per return more than tt did, only had 3 catches all year. no thanks, we got mb3 in the spot he would have been taken and i think mb3 is a better player

    I wish we had an extra third this year. If there is a good OT in round 1 I'm betting we go that way which means we probably look to address LB and FS in the 2nd and 3rd. It would be great if we had an extra third to take a WR, especially since we don't have a 4th.

    Uncertain why this is the case, but if you take a look at the number of Posts you have [depicted under your avatar in both posts under this thread] you'll note that you have 19, 125 posts ...under both of your posts in this thread. Shouldn't one of your post go up to 19,126?

    Just curious.:cool:

    that's not Lelie's problem

    it's beating coverage because he's too skinny, and catching the football consistently

    Hello Phoenix-Talon. Good to have ya back. The post count refreshes on every post. Even one's that were made in the past. Hope that makes sense.

    And hey, can you seriously think about starting a thread regarding your beloved Eagles vs. the Foreskins? I would like to see your take on what you think it is going to take to beat em, and if you are confident about your last game of the season.

    I think Travis Wilson will be a better pro if you are talking about using a 3rd or 4th rounder. He has better size 6'3" 220 lbs and Oklahoma WRs all have done well this year in Brandon Jones, Mark Clayton and Mark Bradley. Wilson had more TD's than all of them last year.
