Taking a look at college football's best WR.

I'm not a OSU or Blackmon homer, but I saw little to get excited about in that highlight reel of Jeffrey.

Agreed, if we were dead set on taking WR I would rather have Blackmon...

You've already stated that you are a OU fan. You've already admitted you haven't watched Jeffery play. Your argument that we should not want Jeffery because we are biased, but it appears to be a vague offshoot of SEC hate rather than an informed decision. You are sticking up for what you know, and attacking my post by claiming the only reason I want Jeffery is because he's a Gamecock (by the way, yes, I have watched Blackmon play)

It's ironic.

BTW, I'm still up for that bet.

My problem with Jeffery is that he lacks the speed to gain separation from defenders. He really is a lot like Dwayne was at USC. DJ was absolutely unstoppable against DB's who he had comparable speed to or who weren't as good at covering a WR. As soon as he got to the NFL it didn't matter how good his hands were because he couldn't gain separation from the defender and wasn't a very good route runner. I see a lot of the same qualities in AJ....

I think the SEC is the best conference in the nation. I don't have a dog in this fight and have no bias.

Honestly, if I had to pick between AJ and JB, I'm taking Malcolm Floyd.

South Carolina has a pretty good track record as far as Wideouts in the NFL.

Floyd's DUI's worry me. He could turn into the next Dwayne Jarrett in that respect....

Honestly, if we were in a position last year where Jeffery was off the board and Blackmon was there, I think I would rather trade down and nab Floyd.

I just don't trust Blackmon.

He's always stuck in traffic having to go up for balls, which is great for ESPN highlight reels, but at only 6'1", he isn't going to have that dominance in the NFL.

Jeffery is just great at finding the soft spot in coverage, and making a play.

Very TO, like, minus the sit up's and the drive way and the temper tantrums.

So, with Blackmon having a slower 40 time, it means you are hesitant to take him too, correct?

As I said, I take Floyd over Blackmon, but I challenge you to watch Jeffery play before coming to a final decision.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
