He's a huge WR at 6'5'' who can go get the ball and make the tough catches. The guy you can throw a fade route too when you're in the red zone on 3rd down. He was overshadowed by Jeremy Maclin last year. He's probably not a first rounder IMO, and at the same time he's the perfect compliment to the recievers we have. I think we would've won the Seattle game if we had a guy we could say "hey this is a size mismatch, we're going to throw him the ball on a fade route and he's going to go up and get it and we're going to get a touchdown", but we didn't have that guy and so we went to Vernon and he dropped the ball, Crabtree was running a post supposedly and didn't have time to finish his route or whatever, Delanie Walker's still a tight end, that's 3 different plays where having this guy would've helped. Look how much better PLax made Eli look. He's put up huge numbers this year. Obviously his 40 time is going to matter(on nfldraftcountdown it says he runs a 4.6), but we could use a guy like this.
I know he's a WR, we have some WRs already, but we don't have a WR like him, I feel him would complete our WR corp and we probably wouldn't have to waste a 1st on him either. He's a pretty underrated guy and Mizzou hasn't been as hyped or as good as they were last year so he's kind of under the radar. He actually has more yards and TDs than Mardy Gilyard but he's not on a team that's won as much so he didn't get as noticed.
We need a redzone target, he fits. Thoughts?
