this is where I’m at…I honestly would be shocked if h breaks 4.5.JJ had a nasty Combine. 4.43 40, but also a 10' 6" broad and 37" vert. That's outstanding speed and explosion.
If JSN tests like that, then I'll re-evaluate. But in that gif I posted, he was ran down by Joey Porter Jr. from a ways out, and Porter's probably a 4.4 guy. Guess we will get the underwear Olympics in 2 weeks to put numbers to all this.
Most likely there, imo. Because of injury. If he's not, that's' good news, because there'll be a higher chance for someone like Flowers to be there.Good player but will he be there at our pick. Draft nicks were saying he was Ohio States best receiver over Olave last season.
Robinson is top 5 talent and could be a generational running back. Would be the steal of the draft if he at 26. Drafting is about accumulating talent not picking for need. That is how we ended up with Bossman and company.Most likely there, imo. If he's not, that's' good news, because there'll be a higher chance for someone like Flowers to be there.
IMO, you can't take Bijan Robinson in the first round. Because this draft has so many RBs, and TEs, and other positions are a little light. So I'd go get players at positions you really need early on in rounds 1,2, then get your TE (if you take one, and I'd recommend taking one this draft) and RB after the 3rd or 4th.
I get it. Robinson is a good back. I just kind of hope he's off the board so it makes the decision easy.
Round 1 should be a WR, CB or DT.
Keenan Allen is a slot WR. I think this year, his time in the slot was down a bit, but he still played more time in the slot. He is a slot WR.Keenan Allen wins outside. My only problem with JSN is Lamb plays slot like 40%ish of the time and kills it.
Almost all of JSNs tape is slot. For a 1st round WR it’s just tough for me to have a big question mark of him being able to win on the outside.
Dude is a great route runner and knows how to finish though. I’m just not certain he’s a great fit for us considering Lamb runs from the slot at a high clip in our 3WR sets.
If Lamb stayed outside more JSN would be a no brainer for me.
2021 he played out of the slot about 50% of the time, so I think slot WR is an exaggeration. I’d consider slot WRs dudes that do it almost 100% of the time. We do the same thing with Lamb and I don’t consider him a slot WR.Keenan Allen is a slot WR. I think this year, his time in the slot was down a bit, but he still played more time in the slot. He is a slot WR.
Maybe a bit of exaggeration (he has played above 50% in the slot the last couple of years, albeit 3-5% above), but Allen is one of the best WR in the slot when he is there. I think it is fair calling him an outside WR, especially over the last couple of years, is equally an exaggeration. In this offense, he would play the majority of his time in the slot, and as you say, he does have that ability to play outside, if Ceedee were to move inside.2021 he played out of the slot about 50% of the time, so I think slot WR is an exaggeration.

A lot of teams out their best WR in the slot to creat mismatches but they still play outside at a good clip.
“Just growing up right there in Rockwall, Texas, just close and all my family. Being a Cowboy, it would definitely be a blessing and an honor. I know that star on that helmet means something. Growing up I always loved watching them play. It was hard sometimes, I’ve been there with the fans. Ups and downs. It would be a blessing, wherever I go, but definitely special if I was a Cowboy,” Smith-Njigba said.
