It’s interesting we picked up this year’s player X in David Durden, and last year’s player X in Devin Harper. Harper stuck around, but got hurt and didn’t contribute much.

I'm also excited about last years UDFA WR Dontario Drummond. He didn't have a draftable grade but was a priority free agent and he's had a year in the program to develop.

He formed a strong rapport with star quarterback Matt Corral in 2021, leading the Rebels with 76 receptions, 1,028 receiving yards (13.5 per catch) and eight touchdowns in 12 starts. Drummond also returned nine punts for 84 yards (9.3 per return) during his career.

Overview
Drummond's play speed can be inconsistent, so his timed speed could be an indicator of which direction his draft stock might head. He's a smooth athlete with the ability to run a more robust route tree with additional schooling but the hands and ball skills are a little disappointing and might not improve much. Drummond's run-after-catch talent is where he shines and where he brings instant value for a team. He has an intriguing ceiling but a lower floor as a Day 3 target.
Strengths
  • Thick, imposing frame from the slot.
  • Naturally athletic and smooth.
  • Hip sink and foot agility to improve as a route runner.
  • Good suddenness out of breaks underneath.
  • Some separation burst through the route stem.
  • Plays to his size and has strength to make contested catches.
  • Able to drop low and rescue the throw.
  • Bringing him down requires commitment.
  • Shifty enough to elude tackles and powerful enough to break them.
  • Possesses untapped potential.

Drummond is another interesting name in the mix. I honestly forgot about him.

It seems like they’re carving out a role for a ‘hands vs speed’ type receiver on the roster giving some of the types they’ve added.

I’d still love to have one that can take the top off of an opposing defense as well.

Apparently. we signed a RB recently? Forget his name but he's a load at 5'10'' 220.

So, I just want to point out, this Landon McCool guy, who I think is someone a lot of you put a lot of stock in.. He says, Jalen Moren Cropper is a "slot only" WR... Let's see how that forecast plays out.

I'm not sure of Earl Bostick. Looks like a good athlete from Combine numbers. Has the perfect size for OT. Yet when I watch his film he reminds me of Soloman Page which is lazy.

What about Fryfogle? He coming back? Brandon Smith?
