D'Rick Rogers

Ok, been hearing a lot about this kid, but also too lazy to read through this thread, can someone give a quick synopsis on he would improve us?

Anyways, isn't this thread about DArick Rogers? lol

Only if you promise to eat crow when he turns out to be an above average - good CB.

I'll eat crow if he sucks like people have claimed. If he's solid, I'm not eating any crow. He'll be anywhere from average to a stud CB. People were claiming he sucks.

Da'Rick Rogers is a physical receiver in the mold of Anquan Boldin, but with much better speed. He's a willing run blocker, a quick learner when it comes to route running, and can digest the playbook real quick, according to his positional coaches in Tennessee. From what I've read, he'd space out in practice, but when called upon, he'd run the correct route, or run the right play to a tee.

He has a bad rep off the field from arguing with coaches at Tennessee, to an off the field fight with an off-duty officer (that he still denies, I believe), to being dismissed from UT for failed drug tests due to marijuana.

He transferred to Tennessee Tech where coaches felt so comfortable with how quick he learned the playbooks that they played him in a game three days after arriving. Safe to say that he dominated for the team. He matured a bit, being humbled now that he wasn't playing for a big time school under the bright lights. Since arriving at TT, he hadn't gotten a single bad rap or failed drug test. He even attended sports psychology sessions to help him handle the stresses of becoming a professional athlete.

IMO, he has taken strides in bettering himself. He's competitive on the field and it shows his passion. Our team would surround him with great, level-headed veterans. If he hadn't gotten kicked out of Tennessee, he may have been a top-15 pick in this draft.

Good summary. I'll add that I think he's easily the best WR in the draft. If he didn't get kicked out of Tennessee, he'd be the 1st WR taken.


WR, DL, and CB are the positions that I've focused on this year. I've watched most of the video out there on all the top prospects. Character issues aside, Rogers is the only "complete package" with 1st round pick production. The other top prospects fall short in the following ways:


Patterson - sloppy route runner with only 1 really productive year


Austin - midget


Allen - below average speed

Hopkins - below average speed

Patton - good all-around, but limited upside

Wheaton - below average size

Watched Mooch's "Game Changers" on NFL-N a bit ago...great show BTW, he worked with QB's, WR's, DB's. Anyway on the WR show, he worked with Kenny Stills, Cordarrelle Patterson, Robert Woods, Keenan Allen and Rogers. Michael Irvin assisted Mooch and is very good coaching the youngsters. They're all very good receivers, but what stood out to me was DR's attitude and toughness. He's very strong and I think he'd be a great addition to our receiving corps. He's got that "it" factor...hard to describe, but you know it when you see it, and D'Rick's got it.

He came off as more about the money to me.

This is the vibe I got as well. Not a fan of his attitude nor how he presented himself on Game Changers

Talented as he is, i felt the exact same way.

Dez Bryant part 2. Do you take the chance? I would.

This thread is funny now. Who knew?
Definitely take him if he's there with our first 7th rounder
He must have really f**ked up in his interviews for him to fall so far.....tons of potential there, but none of that matters if he has a 5 cent head.
why not? that's what these 7th round picks should be used on, chances.

I have no qualms about it...if he reaches the 49ers pick..why not.

You sold me, I'm on board
Guy sounds pretty humble in this interview and knows there's the perception he might have off the field issues and is working to change that. Speaks really well too. I wonder how he managed to piss off pretty much every team lol.

we have a chance to take da rick rite now...patriots just took m.wilson who is a much bigger headache so lets see If we pull the trigger
