Davante Adams is a Raider fan

Time to make him a 49ers fan

wouldn't be mad. he reminds me of a slightly slower Crabtree

I thought he was supposed to be a speed guy?


WTF

lol where'd you hear that Valrod?

He's never been hyped as a speed guy, at least not in the sense of sub 4.4 burner. He's literally a poor man's Crabtree, it is what I first thought of him last year, and only been reinforced this year. He's a physical route runner with good hands. If he runs a low 4.5 I'd think it was an amazing time -- If he broke into the 4.4s he'd be one of the best WRs we could take.

could swore i saw Barrows tweet about him being fast, i probably read it wrong

haha I like how everyone is saying the exact same description of him. I posted it at the same time as you.

nope. i'm interested on his measurables. site has him listed at 6'2''. could end up being 6'.

Davante Adams was 6'1" and 212 pounds at the weigh in.

he was probably talking about Brandin Cooks, who's becoming Barrow's draft fave.

Bruce Ellington built very well for his height.

really is a crabtree clone. a slower crabtree, that is.

sucks to hear the measurables on Jarvis Landry. i thought he'd at least be 6'. unless he absolutely kills it on the 40, i can see him being available for us in the 2nd.

Cooks has surpassed him in my WR board.

Landry is 5'11" 1/2, which essentially puts him at 6'0" with cleats on. Just my opinion, but any team that sees that as a factor deserves to continue their losing ways.

I always expected him to be right around 5'11", for his height, he has nice size. Analyzes of past drafts have stated that at least when it comes to the early rounds, a WR's weight is more predictive of his success than his actual height, for Landry, being over 200 pounds is a good sign.
Allen Robinson built very well, let's see how he moves at 220 pounds, terrific size for a possession receiver.

not hating on Landry. he's still one of my favorite players in the draft, but in our position, it would be a difficult choice for me to choose between him and Cooks.
Logan Thomas....man, if he ever puts it all together......... 6'6", 248, almost 11 inch hands.

Depends on what they prioritize. For pure hands and route running, you really can't miss with Landry and he's got a better build than Cooks.

That's my draft crush...back off!
Carlos Hyde and Andre Williams are both built like friggin' battering rams. Hopefully one or the other would turn out to be as good as Lynch.
