Haven’t seen many talk about downs out of unc what round is he projected? I think he’s perfect fit for this team!

That drop vs G Tech on the goal line, nobody within 10 yards of him, cost them the game. Can't get it out of my head. Probably the worst drop in the biggest moment on an easy perfect throw I saw all year.

Josh Downs?

Good player. Not so sure about a perfect fit though. Slot only guy. Speed is ok but not great (clocked at 4.47 at UNC). Excellent route runner, and has excelled at things he shouldnt (contested catches). I think he is a 60 for 650 guy in the NFL. Cole Beasley type slot. Outside of the drop @RS12 referenced, I have seen some mentions of drops being an issue. Though I have seen enough of him to say of that is a real concern. Cant find any totals posted anywhere either

With fit, with Lamb playing so much slot, Id prefer a WR that can play multiple spots. Thats not going to be Downs. With that being said, I think he is a pretty safe prospect. I see him as a 3rd rounder, but some other places have him higher. I think PFF has him as their 4th WR

Exactly, Downs puts you in the mind of Cole Beasely. I also, agree they need a guy who can play slot or outside because of CeeDee.

Josh Downs in the right offense is an annual 1000-yard WR.
But in a 17-game schedule that is not anything crazy to say.
And he will run sub around a 4.4

You are underestimating Downs.
Grades as a 95/100 as a deep threat...so not just a slot dude.
Was one of the top in the nation at contested ball catches (72%)

But either way.
The slot now is not even what it was 3-4 years ago.
All the top offenses are putting their best WRs in the slot for more than 50% of the plays now days

More like Diggs than Beasley

Not so sure he will be sub 4.4. He times at UNC at 4.47, so I dont see him doing better at the combine

That's fair. His separation in the slot and how easy he gets open put reminded me of Cole.

Probably tru. you got to it before I switched it to around 4.4 vs sub 4.4
he has timed 4.34 before too, but that couldve been a bad time
