What do you guys think?
me likey
I Like him as a late round draft pick or Kyle Williams Arizona state as a late round pick both are quick and can help the return game and hopfully help at WR.
I think they said he ran a 4.50, which is a little disappointing at that size, but he did look very smooth catching the ball. They said he might have stumbled a bit in one of his 40s, so he might be quicker than he timed. Possibllity in the later rounds.
Would be a nice late round guy to add for special teams.

I'm thinking 4th-5th round...
I'm suprised this hasn't gotten more of a reaction.

You should have labeled it Antonio Brown or CJ Spiller if you wanted more of a reaction.

Don't feel bad; we're all just obsessed with Spiller running a 4.27 or 4.37 or whatever right now. Some of us are jumping off buildings because we're convinced Spiller will go top 10 now before we pick, while others are happy he'll push another player down to us. It's basically Spiller World right now in the War Room, with some Trent Williams thrown in.

5th This guy antonio brown

id take any of those guys over getting spiller with a top 15 pick any day with 17 i wouldnt mind
I've been hoping we draft Brown since that bowl game he played in. The guy was all over the place.

To me, he's exactly what we need: a 5th WR that can stretch the field, return kicks/punts, and maybe get worked into a few trick plays as a RB.

And if we can get him in the 4th or 5th then we can spent top picks on players who will see the field a lot more, like starters at ROT, OLB, and S.

My thoughts exactly!
On the Combine Wrap Up show, Mike Mayock said Brown did so well in the position drills that he's created a lot of buzz for himself. Mayock now projects Antonio Brown as a 2nd-3rd round pick!
