Strengths:
Excellent height and bulk --- Smooth athlete --- Super aggressive and competitive --- Tough, powerful and physical --- Good leaping ability with nice body control and ball skills --- Strong hands --- Will ****** passes out of the air --- A polished route runner who knows how to get open --- Will work the middle of the field --- Good vision --- Runs hard after the catch and will break tackles --- No trouble getting off the line / beating the jam --- Terrific blocker --- Big play threat who plays faster than he times --- Durable --- Productive --- A lot of quality experience.

Weaknesses:
Average timed speed and quickness --- Lacks a burst --- Inconsistent concentration and will drop some balls --- Small hands --- Does not get a lot of separation --- Can he get vertical against pro corners? --- Not very elusive --- Poor balance --- Questionable work ethic --- Immature.

Notes:
A three-year starter for the Bayou Bengals --- Named 1st Team All-SEC in 2008 and 2nd Team in 2009 --- Initially entered the 2009 NFL Draft but changed his mind and returned for senior season --- Ranks in the Top 5 in school history in career receiving yards (5th), receptions (3rd) and touchdowns (2nd) --- Caught at least one pass in 41 consecutive games to close out his college career --- Led the Tigers in receiving three years in a row (2007, 2008, 2009) --- Dwayne Bowe clone with a well-rounded game and the potential to be a true #1 target in the NFL

I like this pick a lot. He is a legit blocker which was a role Moose played well. Also, makes some clutch catches.

I like it, though I would still like to get an agile speed guy too.

LaFell is a solid pick for this offense. He is a good blocking WR, is good over the middle, likes contact,and nice red zone target. He ain't a Steve Smith type #1......but he definately can be the Moose replacement they have been looking for.....something they have been looking at for years.

I'd like to see them move into the 4th and grab Roberts or Ford now....go back to back WR.
