The best thing about our new small, slot type receiver? He played WR last year and we didn't give up a 1st or 2nd next year to get him.

I was stationed in Hawaii for 6 years. If I ever hear "aloha" again it'll be too soon.

Does not sound like bad duty to me.

So on the first page one review says he catches with his hands, the other say's he's a body catcher. Which is it?

And I don't think I agree with average speed, 4.42 and the videos show him burning past guys.

Sounds like a good possession receiver.
Needs work on his hands and route running.
Two years out he'd be a solid receiver if he continues to progress as he did in Hawaii.

All these 4-7 round guys are a 50/50 shot at busting. But you occasionally get that guy that gets some knocks in evaluation that really don't stand up to the test of time. Could Pilares be that 10 year player, most likely not. But he'll probably be able to give us 4-5 years of solid service if he doesn't wash out in the first two.

I predicted drafting a WR and getting a FA WR. Im thinking Sims-Walker if we can't get a higher profile guy.

This is officially "my" rookie for this year. Last year it was Greg Hardy and he's a beast. I REALLY like this guy. From what I've seen all the scouts are talking out their asses.

Also, if you look at that video someone posted of him in this thread doing a clean or whatever it was, the dude is built almost EXACTLY like Smitty, arms look pretty long, hands look unproportionately big compared to his arms and build, and he's stout. It's been said ad nauseam he is super strong and a converted RB...

Why has Smitty been so good? Because of his ability to get YAC AND to go up and get the ball. The first part, from seeing him play before and being impressed and then getting refreshed with the highlights from the USC game, it was clear to me he is a playmaker once the ball is in his hands.

The 2nd part I wasn't sure about, until I saw on a less than 100% knee, the guy ran a 4.42 at his pro day (which are usually slightly exaggerated), but there is no exaggerating this - THE DUDE HAD A 40.5" VERTICAL AT HIS PRO DAY. So, I think he may have that 2nd part down too... incredible.

Check this out under the dated blurbs on him:
He sounds cool too, when telling people he was going to run under a 4.5 he said people "looked at me like I was on crack." Although he ran a 4.37 in training.

I'm unabashedly taking ownership of the Pilares fan club as president and CEO right now. I called it the day of the draft that I had a good feeling about Gettis and kept telling everyone that he was going to be a player for us and possibly move up to the #2... Guess what happened? :lol:

So, I'm telling you right now - Pilares is going to be a player for us, and if Smitty is gone, he's gonna make some waves, possibly the #2 this year.
