well yes, if our GM took him I'd get behind him, but nothing I see about him, or the needs we have, suggests we'll be taking him in the first round, be it at 9 or 15 (and I agree that the idea of trading down six spots to take him is retarded, if you like him enough at 15 you should at 9 too).

anyway, it's not "he's fat" that has me skeptical (though some of that stuff made me wonder about his work ethic), it's that his production nose dived this year, he is much shorter than originally reported, and while he has great hands, he is not notoriously fast, so I don't think he is a good pick for us considering our current needs.

Being a die hard gamecock fan i think he would be a nice 3rd pick for us if he's there he has the potential to become a very good receiver i'm fine with who ever we pick if their good and can play at the best of the best i'm cool with it.

Steve Smith's production took a nose dive 2 years ago. Was that Smith's fault or sorry QB play. Jeffery had a very difficult situation this season with his QB. His starting QB this season is an alcoholic, and played terrible. He was eventually kicked off the team. Shaw, the current QB, is not tall enough to see over the line, and scrambles a lot. I would not spend the 9th pick on him, but if he is still there when we pick in the 2nd I would consider taking him. I dont expect us to take him though. We have a lot of more pressing needs than WR.

He came in "way shorter" than originally reported? I have never seen any report listing him over 6-4. Every credible report I have ever seen put him in the 6'3-6'4 range.

Obviously QB play factors in there, but dominant college WRs make even bad QBs look decent. Jeffery did virtually disappear in many games it seemed, but admittedly I am not a major SEC fan so that may just have been my limited perception.

Either way, his production wasn't even the biggest issue. The point is that all of that adds up to a guy who isn't someone you're dying to have still be on the board at 9, and given our situation at WR, I don't see why we take him given that fact.

An inch is quite a bit for a receiver, and everything I've seen has pegged him at 6'4", so coming in under 6'3" is quite a bit shorter imo.

He also has the longest arms of all the receivers in the draft.

I wish he would run at the combine.

I thought it was Blackmon that wasn't going to run? Alshon isn't either?

Don't you guys know how it goes these days? Top QBs don't throw, top WRs don't run, it's getting ridiculous.
