Guys, we're not talking about burning a 1st or even a 4th round pick here.
We are going to have something like 12 or 13 draft picks, we've signed previous low rounders and UDFA to future contracts. Even our PS is stacked for goodness sake!
I would be more than happy to spend a 5th on him with the condition that he enters a rehab program and whatever else we need to do and develop him. If he cannot follow the structure then we will cut him, but we're going to cut just about everyone we select from the 5th round down. Our 7th round picks have no trade value so we're going to be gambling with the latter round picks anyway.
I think this guy needs structure and a healthy environment, and I think our locker room and team can do that. I'd be more than happy to give him a shot because if it doesn't work out then we are absolutely not wasting anything. All this talk of signing him as an UDFA is nonsense, he'll have quite a few teams trying to do the same. We can actually take a shot with our roster, our ridiculous number of picks and the team culture.
It's not even a risk. Is a free play essentially.
Not sure about that one. There are a lot of players in the later rounds i would take over him.
Quincy Enunwa WR
Aaron Colvin CB
Reggie Jordan TE
Trey Millard FB/TE/RB/WR
just to name a few for example.
I was one of the first to consider him as a late round choice but i have less and less interest. Apology after apology !
I get your points. But you dont draft a player only because of his
athleticism. We are talking about the NFL here. There are more players then Lyerla who are freaks.
