    I watch Clemson a good bit and have liked Jacoby Ford as a developmental wideout and immediate return man. Ford may have boosted himself out of where we'd select him now.

    I was thinking he might be a third round target of ours. I don't know if we'd say yes in the second.
    I didn't like how Jordan Shipley moved. Did he put on weight or anything trying to get "NFL ready?"

    193 is about the playing weight for him. But I bet he's going to have a wicked 10 yard dash time though. And maybe even an impressive 3-cone time too.

    Golden Tate is a player I've been interested in seeing. I've got mixed opinions after watching him run some of the drills at the combine (on NFL Network). At times he looked good. And he turned in a good speed in the 40 (I think his official time was 4.42). As a former running back, I have visions of him being similar to Miles Austen, by taking short passes and going a long way.

    But when he ran the gauntlet (where receivers catch 5 passes in quick succession while running from sideline to sideline across the field) he dropped three passes and juggled one. That was the worst showing of all the receivers I remember seeing during that drill.

    One player I hope the Cowboys don't take is Jacoby Ford. IMO, he's the kind of player who will excel in the kinds of drills used at the combine. He's small and fast, but if you listen to Mayock at all, when he puts the pads on, he doesn't play nearly as fast.

    One player who did impress me was Taylor Price. He ran a good speed in the 40 (4.41 officially I'm pretty sure), and looked good catching the ball. He would be a good value in the late third IMO.

    Carlton Mitchell looks good. I'd be happy with him or Ford.
