Surprise Over-Rated & Under-Rated

I alwyas like to get your opinions on guys I don't know much about. Good article and will burst some bubbles.

Please give opinions on the under rated guys and what rounds they'll be picked since I don't know al lot about them.

Ha. It sounds like i wrote that article. I haven't been big on D. Jones, Crypien or Austin. The zone seems to love these guys. I don't necessarily think their bad players but when I watch their highlights I am not blown away. If the Niners were to take any of them I wouldn't be disappointed, I just think that there are other guys out there to be impressed with.

I haven't given Star or Nassib much attention since I don't think they are on the Niners radar.
Overrated:
I completely agree that Tavon Austin is overrated. His hype is unbelievable.

I sort of agree on Datone Jones too. He has climbed up a lot of mocks into the top 20 and even top 15. That is a little absurd to me. I think he is a late first rounder.

I disagree on Star being overrated. He can flat out dominate anybody. His endurance will improve with NFL conditioning and maturity.

Underrated:
I completely agree about DeAndre Hopkins. This dude is a baller and could be the 1st WR taken.
You can take Brooks' scouting report on Cyprien and it sounds exactly like Dashon Goldson. The guy was a Pro Bowler for us with all the same issues. Looks like he could end up in Red and Gold.

My vote for the most intimidating looking player in this years draft. Saw a picture and swear I had a few drops trickle down my leg.

Name one person in the draft that has a more impressive highlight reel then Austin. His entire collegiate career is a highlight reel
I fully agree about Duke Williams, highly underrated player, see him as a 2nd round talent that will end up being taken in the late 3rd or 4th round.
If anything, star has become underrated.

Austin is way overrated i agree.

Cyprien im luke warm on. dont want reid.

That's true. He was productive as a mofo. So versatile. Don't expect him to be your #1 wide receiver, but if you have another guy to compliment him than he can be a great player in this league.

Hopefully people agree that Tavon and Star are overrated and they fall to us
I feel like WR Josh Boyce is underrated. Dude put up some good #s. He strong and fast.

Word. Sounds like a good plan. We should pay all the analysts to talk about how the guys that we really want are overrated and actually suck.

This and that!
Yeah because Bucky Brooks has made a living as a talent evaluator at the pro level. Oh wait, that's right, he's an arm chair GM just like the rest of us. Nevermind...
I like N want us to pick D.Jones I think its cause he's a need for a good backup player..after him all tha rest projected as a 3-4 DE suck even more ...
