Unlike Tavon Austin he is not a WR, he plays RB and a receiver out of the backfield. He isn't very durable, even by college standards, and will never be a multi-down back.
He is fast, but 1st round/2nd round material he isn't right now.
Well his speed was legit, lol.
I still don't think you take him until the 3rd or 4th. McCluster is a good comparison by GEEK.
McCluster went 36th overall, early 2nd.
Agree to an extent. He's like a small school, poor man's McCluster but with 4.2 speed. Archer is shorter, faced weaker competition, is indeed an inexperience WR.
Jacoby Ford came out of Clemson as a WR (he had already been converted from RB) and he ran a 4.28, but if I recall he wasn't selected until the 4th. He was bigger than Archer and came from a major program. Archer in my opinion would be a luxury pick to someone in the 4th round, but I believe any earlier than that would be a reach for him.
