Seriously doe, the draft is all about projection, whether that be based on measureables, college production or a combination of the two. IMO, Jeffrey is as talented as any WR in this draft, but he hasn't always shown the necessary dedication/work ethic that you'd like to see in a top pick, nor has displayed the kind of speed you want to see in a big-bodied WR. So based on projections, Hill is likely to be picked higher than Jeffrey, but both have great size and are crazily talented/athletic. But if I was investing millions of dollars in a young WR, I'd go with the faster one who caught everything in sight at the combine and who displayed big-play ability but who played in a run-oriented offense (upside) over the guy who's slower and has a questionable work. But that's me.
I basically agree. But first, I have a question. What does "doe"
My sense is that Hill has better intangibles than Jeffrey.
Hill came into the combine prepared; he put in the required work. I think did everything.
Jeffrey did not put in the required work, and he knew that his 40 time, correctly or incorrectly, would be important. He chose not to run.
Success in the NFL is to a large degree about work and dedication to the craft. I think Hill has work habits and dedication.
I would go with Hill over Jeffrey. I would trade up for Hill, Wright, or Floyd.
If Jeffrey were to fall to us, I would let him continue to fall.
