I'm quickly becoming a HUGE fan of this kid...I watched a you tube video (maybe someone can post it) that was about 8 mins long and showed that this kid is definitely someone we should look at during the draft. He has great size (6-2 209 lbs) and good speed (4.42 at his Pro day) and the best part is that he catches the ball extremely well. When you look at the video you can see that even on routine grabs he is catching it away from his body...and generally no double catches. He also runs very percise routes as seen in the video. His only downfall is that I don't think he is a huge verticle threat but I think his route running and hands make up for that.

I know I'm gushing over this guy but to me he is a great player that we could ****** up in the 4th (which may be a reach but I don't care). Like I said just look at the tape...no other receiver has impressed me the way this kid has. Oh and scouts said that his workout at Michigan St's Pro Day was outstanding. If anybody else has any info on this kid (injuries, attitude, or limitations) let me know.

I would love to have a Spartan on the Panthers :-D.

He really was just about the only thing worth a darn to throw to on our team.

I'm wary of draft projects named Blair.

I think he will stay in Michigan, the Lions should be pretty high on the kid.

What a history, from walk-on to all-conference.

BTW He has enough speed to be a vertical weapon in the NFL, and althought he can play in the outside, he fits better in the slot.

He impressed me the most out of the receivers at the Shrine Game. He has hands made of velcro.

Consider me a huge fan of this kid, if he is there in the 4th or the 5th we could certainly do much worse then him. I hope we do get the chance to draft him he could be a huge steal depending on where he is taken.

been high on this kid sense the shrine bowl, had a very eye opening combine and pro day to boot. everyone raved about him doing the little things to be successful at the next level at the shrine bowl. they all said he doesnt have the speed or quickness to be an elite wr at the shrine bowl and would need to do the little things to be a #3 in the nfl. unfortunately for all he pundits, he was one of the quicker wrs at the combine. i really hope we draft him in the 4th or 5th.

of the sleeper WRs, he is 3rd on my list behind emmanuel sanders and stephen williams. sanders and white are the most nfl ready as far as route running is concerned, williams has the highest upside (6' 4",, great body control, and can stretch the field, plus productive). if we drafted white and sanders as our 2 future wrs i would be thrilled.
