No one talks about him, yet he broke receiving records set by Andre Johnson and Leonard Hankerson, both early picks. Aside from his production in a major conference, he showed a knack for catches passes in traffic and being a big play threat (see YPC average for further evidence) and is also a solid blocker. Hurns is also a high-character prospect who earned the Team MVP award for his sensational performance on the field and his outstanding character and leadership off of it.
So there you have it, those are a few of my favorites I'd LOVE to have on our team. There are plenty others I'd be happy about, but those specific players are the ones I've grown to like the most.
I aint heard much about on here but u talked him up really good so I looked him N his statz up ... 121 catchz 1891 yardz 14TDz in 4 yearz now Im wondering what recordz he broke with them numberz ???
Single-season receiving record. And I think "single-season" is the key phrase that might concern some teams. He has all the tools, but it's a question of whether scouts think he is a one-year wonder or not. Based on what I saw the year prior to this year, the skills have been there all along, and so has the work ethic, shown by his dramatic improvement.
Now, am I saying Hurns should be a high pick? No. Production never tells the whole story. There's so much else they take into consideration. Overall, I give Hurns a 5th round grade right now, pre-Combine. I think he will just need a little time to adjust to the NFL, but with a team that is willing to give him that shot, I like his chances.
No love for Beckham, Benjamin or even Robinson?
I love Benjamin and Robinson, and I'd be very excited to have them. I was just answering the question for the specific players throughout the draft that my eyes would light up over, and the ones I mentioned were just particular favorites for various reasons. As evidenced, they don't have to be 1st-round talents to be a favorite. I have various "favorites" at each of the tiers in this draft.
I'm not a big Beckham fan though.
