Interesting article on Pilares

My computer has been down and today was the first day that I have been able to look at information on the players we drafted I found a very interesting article on Kealoha Pilares that was wrote before the draft.

Here is the Article

It pretty much says that he is the biggest WR steal of the draft and compares him to Harvin and Garcon using some formulas that they have used to determine how good players are.

I think this guy could end up being Steve Smiths replacement.

Yeah, that was posted before. We'll see how well he does coming off that PCL injury.

from what i seen he has healed from that injury, well he said something of that nature during his post draft interview.

Interesting stuff, but we'll see what he does when he hits the field. Damn a mathematical equation. You can't equate intangibles.

I'm not really counting on fantasy football guys to evaluate draft picks. Hopefully they are right though.

Already said he was my "surprise player" for the 2011 season. I'm very happy (but was extremely shocked when we drafted him-never heard of him, so I won't pretend like I know him). But after all the articles basically refuting the lack of effort put into scouting reports by the "experts" where they state his injury risk, lack of speed, hands etc. Then you have the guys who actually go in depth and post real info, it's become even more encouraging to support him.

I was shocked as well when we drafted him. Considering we just drafted three WRS last year and two of them played very well for the situation they was in. I think AE will be cut with a quickness if Pilares can prove himself. I dont think Pilares has the ability to make a difference in the return game which might be the only reason to keep AE. We have been trying to find a player to replace Steve Smith for a while, it started with Ryne Robinson which injuries ended his career, we drafted AE hoping to covert him into a speedy WR like Smith but the verdict is still out on him, I think eventually we are due to find his replacement and I can see this guy being the one. Maybe Smith will stay a year and we can use him to teach Pilares to become a great WR. If Smith does leave I feel Pilares or Edwards will step up and become his replacement.

I don't see Edwards being cut. Like people have pointed out before, gone are the days where we carry only 3 WRs on the game day roster. I think at least 5 WRs, maybe 6 make our 53 man roster this year.

The oddman out in a situation like that will be guys like Tyrell Sutton. We'll probably carry only 3 RBs on the roster now.

Nah T-Sutt is safe. He is a baller. Remember teams were trying to trade for him last season.

It was a rumor created by the Huddle. I never say any definitive sources.

I sincerely doubt we carry as many RBs as we have in the past.
