I've been saying for a long time that Rogers was the best all around receiver in this class, with an incredible combination of speed, size, leaping ability, and a great set of hands to go along with it, and he's proven me right this weekend. The guy measured at 6'2 1/2", 217 lbs, and updates from the combine have posted the following:
"Overall, Da'Rick Rogers finished with a fantastic day. He ran a 4.52, which is fine for his size, and he finished in the Top 5 in the 3-cone, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle, vertical jump and broad jump. At 6-foot-2, 217 pounds, that's a fantastic athlete...Da'Rick Rogers just ran a 4.44 on his second attempt...Casey Hayward told me before he got drafted by the Packers last year that Rogers was the toughest wide receiver he faced in the SEC"
He's been putting up great numbers at the combine to complement some outstanding tape for coaches to watch. With 11 picks (along with 3 comp picks and potentially one from a Smith trade), we have enough room to take a chance on a player with character issues and hope that he reaches his high ceiling. Thoughts?
