This dude is gonna slide big time, wouldn't be shocked if he lasts until the 3rd round.
gotta admit thats soft as hell. some of us are lucky to get that low with consistent activity but for a 4 year college player to register that % then I wholeheartedly believe that 4.61 40 time was legit. IF and I mean IF he had that bad of a work ethic then we might as well draft Alshon, at least he played against consistently more skilled corners in the SEC then in the BIG12 and could solve our redzone and 3rd down conversion issues.
He ran a 4.4 at his pro day. Once he gets in an offseason program with conditioning he'll lose some of the weight again. He still has mad skills and looked great at his pro day, he just needs someone to force him to get in shape. But if he can be that fast at 16% body fat he can probably run a 4.3 something if he's in shape. He's still a really good player.
I'm not against Alshon btw. I like him better than most of the people on here.
Yea I'd be happy with either one but I still think if we were going to take someone who had to be forced to workout we might as well take someone who will help as much as possible in terms of known issues. I'm one of the bigger supporters of both of them and have always advocated for simply a playmaker on the field, not specifically a WR, TE, or RB but under these circumstances I just see Alshon as the better choice.
Either one would help but thats just me.
Also Lott - 16% body fat is not the before photo, for the average person, its the after photo. Average body fat of a young adult male is 25+%, once you hit the mid to lower teens you are consider "athletic" or "above average" in BMI. 16% is still in shape but I would not be happy about it if I was an NFL team about to invest a 1st round pick in a small WR who could have just as serious issues as people say Alshon has.
