Lulz at everyone picking Blackmon to bust. He is a beast.
Watching the "top recievers" individual highlights, I personally didn't like Nick Toon.
But the one bust I'll strongly call with my very amateur analysis is Lamar Miller. He looks to me like a really fast guy who can beat people to the church if he gets space, but not a player with a natural ability to shake guys or grind out an extra couple yards after contact or pick up the blitz. He'll be called a bust if drafted in round 1 or 2.
I disagree on Lamar Miller. He grinds out extra yards and routinely breaks arm tackles and most improtantly to grinding out yards, he runs low. If you watch David Wilson, sure WIlson is physical but he runs so high that his physicality is going to back fire. You can run upright in college and knock people over, not in the NFL unless you are a very rare breed. In the NFL, you gotta run low and drive with the legs for extra yards, which Lamar Miller does.
Lamar Miller's run style IMO fits what works in the NFL very well. I don't think Lamar will be a 20-25 carry back, but who is now days? No one is expecting him to be Adrian Peterson or anything.
I don't put much emphasis at all on "shaking guys". That rarely ever works at the NFL level, give me a one-cut speed back any day over a dancing RB.
