Nope. I would take him in the third though.

3rd maybe.

No tiny hand slow receivers with the dropsy's, please.

Hurney seems to put most stock in film so I would not be surprised if he took him in the 2nd.

Funny, the article says he has big, strong hands and runs weak routes, while analysis I've read elsewhere says the opposite.

I would take him in the second in a heartbeat. He's a hell of a blocker, has a knack for getting open, and makes a ton of big catches. He'll make a solid contribution for some team for a long time.

I've been really picky about potential draft prospects lately, so the answer is no. I'm still hoping for Alualu, Curran or Shipley. I don't have enough information on LaFell tbh to make an informed decision. I've seen highlight reels, but those are too short and don't tell me enough.

edit: I just saw his numbers, and I got to say that I'm not impressed. The answer is no, I would not take him in the 2nd.

Small hands, drops, not a polished route runner, lacks top end speed.. hell no in the 2nd.

You have to think that other receivers rated higher will still be around in the 2nd, the guy is a projected 3rd round player with various question marks.

If he is the best receiver left in the 2nd round when we pick, then we need to look at a different position, as that amount of receivers off the board means another position has been ignored.

I wouldn't draft him at all, don't really like him, especially when there are WR's that will be available(in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th) that are better than him. This years draft seems to be loaded with good reciever's but I'm not convinced LaFell is one of them.

    • I would be more than happy with a battle of the Carolinas for the title (if for no other reason than it means we got by UK and KU). Please beat Florida for me.  I am sick of hearing about them.
    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
