Top 10 pick can get burned at times but was embarrassed multiple times!.... wasn't even close to covering... reminded me of our current secondary group!... not good.
Yeah from the film Blackmon made Prince look really bad. I'm a stats guy so I'd have to see what Prince did over the entire year. The Blackmon/Weeden combo may also be just tough to defend against. Blackmon is THE top receiver in the league stats wise.. (1700+yds/20TDs). I actually like the QB from OKSt Weeden. I think he's a mature QB with really good touch.
Prince has great instinct as a good run stopper from that highlight video, but I would focus on coverage skills. From the very few highlights of LSU Peterson I've seen he seems a lot tighter on cover.
I'd have to see the right stats (yds allowed/ TDs allowed/ pass defended / thrown against), but right now I'd keep looking for the clear BPA at #7. Not impressed with Prince at this time.
I like Blackmon more than Julio Jones and AJ Green based on stats, but I also think you have to adjust on QB play and I really like Weeden. I might have to adjust Blackmon's production. He still will probably be my #1 WR.
