    You guys think he will make it in the NFL? Or will he be another Wayne McGarity from UT also...

    Cosby probably won't go the 3rd or 4th round because of his age and height , but somebody will get the steal with him . He's got a fantastic football brain , runs great routes , has good speed , and is pretty stout for his size . He'll make a real nice #2 receiver for some team .

    Quan Cosby is already better than Wane McGarity. Dallas reached when they drafted McGarity in the 4th round of the 1999 draft. He should have been a 6th or 7th rounder or even a UDFA. Cosby will go lower in the draft than the 4th round. Maybe a 6th or 7th rounder.

    I like the kid, but I don't see him lighting up the NFL. He could be a solid slot receiver and decent return man and special teams guy. He won't be a need for Dallas, but I won't be disappointed if he ends up a Cowboy. In fact I would be happy as long as they don't reach for him. Who knows he may end up being the Cowboys version of Danny Amendola.

    Quan Cosby is a Wes Welker starter kit. Short, thick guy with outstanding start/stop quicks but limited long speed. Good hands who will make tough catches in traffic. Outstanding blocker. He's going to be 25 or 26, which hurts his stock, but I would be all over him in the fourth or fifth round. We need guys like him.

    I wonder about the long speed. In high school he ran a 10.46 in the 100 meters. That is not slow. I wonder how much speed he has lost since then because he is probably heavier now than he was in high school. I think he has fast enough straight line speed.

    I haven't watched enough of him to really know but I can't see him being here unless he falls into the 5th round or later and Dallas takes him in order to replace Hurd and/or Stanback.

    I like him because he seems to always be alert and thinking on the field. He seems to have football smarts.

    To be honest, he kinda reminds me of Crayton. I also agree with Jossee, a lot depends on his speed. If he runs well, he could be a 4th rd pick. If he doesn't, he'll probably be 6th, 7th or UFA. JMO.

    my favorite thing about Quan......he is a superb blocker and will blow you up to get his man some extra yardage or a TD.

    Cosby is quite a bit quicker

    it takes Crayton forever to make any sort of momentum, whether north-south, or east-west

    I can assure you that Cosby is nothing like Crayton. For one, Crayton is taller with a wiry build. He has sub par long speed and unremarkable quickness, but he runs pretty good routes and has good hands. Cosby is a short, stocky guy with very good quickness, unremarkable long speed, good hands, good toughness, and a willingness to block. I like him quite a bit as an immediate fourth or fifth receiver and special teams guy.
