Henry Ruggs-WR-Bama

Sorry, got tired of waiting for Hero to quit messing around with this. Now that the 49ers have got #13, Ruggs is a likely target. He fits all the parameters of what Shanahan looks for in a WR and brings blistering homerun speed to the table. He's like the Bill Gates version of what Shanahan was hoping for from Goodwin. Defenses would have to honor his speed down the field and he's a threat to house it from anywhere on the field. Before the Buckner trade he was just a curiosity, now he's a realistic option.




He would be amazing in this offense, who would you comp him too ?
This has got to be the pick if they stay at 13. Like you said, he is the prototype Shanahan WR.

I've heard Santana Moss, Tyreek Hill, Ted Ginn. Unlike the typical deep threat WRs, Ruggs is a developed route runner with very reliable hands. I don't think he turns out as good as Hill but somewhere between that and Brandin Cooks IMO.

But yeah, if I was going to bet the house on which WR Shanahan loves, it's 100%, without-a-f**king-doubt Henry Ruggs.

I was going to say Desean Jackson

So this dude is the real deal then? His videos he looks explosive. Like that child beater explosive.

That is another one but I think that Ruggs is a lot better picking up yards after the catch.

He's a little short, but has blazing speed.
What are the odds that Ruggs goes before #13?
