For those who don't know he's the director of NFL Films. He has more access and experience in breaking down film than most of the talking heads out there.

And Justin Hunter looks like a better WR then Patterson.

The team that Drafts Patterson better have a WR coach who can stay on him all the time because he is such a bad route runner.

I still think you should watch because recaps are hard with this guy. He almost intentionally tries to remain ambivalent so none of these guys can make him look like a jackass the way Cam did all his haters. Also won't heap too much praise because he doesn't want to be that guy(s) who claimed Gabbert was the best QB in 11.

Thinks fan's are crazy by belittling the WR group in terms of lacking for first round talent.

Justin Hunter- has incredible build and fluid movement and but way too many drops. adds that his tape is far better than CP's
Cordarelle Patterson- Far better with ball in his hands than without.Basically amazing once he has the ball, very raw in terms of doing what it takes to get to the ball....needs a good wr coach to get him up to speed.
Keenan Allen- reminds him of reggie wayne, smooth accelerator but not a natural burner.good at yards after catch.
Deandre Hopkins-big physical, good hands, reminds him of Boldin runs better than Boldin(speed wise).There's a place for him but does not want to desginate him as # 1 or 2.
Tavon Austin- More than a receiver..moveable chess piece like Harvin. Most dynamic play maker should go top 10.
Steadman Bailey- Probably a good slot guy.
Robert Woods- Very good at run after catch, similarities to Blackmon but not as strong.
Quinton Patton- Reminds him of some old guy named Mike Quick from back in the day. Seperates when ball in air. only lined up on right side so limited routes but ran them good.
Aaron Melette- Likes him more than Patton..Did very well against Casey Hayward in 2011.

DT
Floyd is best player in draft. Will be a 3-tech who can rack up tackles for loss.
Sheldon Richardon is similar and right behind him.
Star- He's not the same player as Ngata...damn drawing a blank on what else he said about him.
Kwann Short- Looks like an all pro or said something similar anyway on his best 25 plays, looks like an undrafted free agent on his worst 25 plays.
Jonathan Jenkins- Has amazing feet(movement) for a fat bastard and can make plays as a Nose tackle.. How many tho is the question, can he give you more than 20-25 plays at his size?Even with that question he's the best 2 down nose tackle in draft.
Jonathan Hankins- Great measurables, takes on double teams, inconsistent.
Slyvester WIlliams- can't remember..maybe somebody else can.

I'm surprised he didn't mention Rogers.

Da'Rick was well on his way to being a Top 15 pick before the failed drug tests.

His knock on Sylvester Williams was that sometimes he doesn't finish plays. Great initial burst, but sometimes he didn't finish. Cossell still said him going in the 20-25 range wouldn't surprise him.

You know, he never actually says that he's the best WR in the class. He did say it would not surprise him if he goes top ten.

I'm convinced that the WR we should take are Allen, Hopkins, Hunter. Any of them would be great. I'm more inclined for Hunter or Allen. Cossell said Hunter reminds him of AJ Green with his movement and ball skills. I'm glad he said this because I thought the same. He also said Hunter had better tape than Patterson. He's too raw. Which is another thing I thought as well.

Yeah let's have our 1st year WR coach delegating most of his time to 1 WR. We do have other young WR who could use his time and wisdom.

WR in the first round might not be the best decision when there might be a pick of the litter in the 2nd. That wasn't a Cat joke either.

I still think there's a good chance that DeAndre Hopkins is the best WR out of this draft class. He's not the biggest, he's not the fastest, but he does run good routes, he has good size and speed and has great hands. I just think he's the best total package. IMO, he's the safest pick. I'm not sure about #14, but I'd LOVE to trade down a few spots and snag him. I very seriously doubt he'd be there in the 2cd.

I still favor Da'Rick. He's similar to what Allen is but he'll be available in the second.

Every once in awhile, he pulls off insane catches too.

If we can get a trade down then draft a WR it would be the best scenario.

Yep, sorry, I just haven't seen any proof that we have much to work with right now. We have Smitty, LaFell, and then a bunch of also rans. Maybe they can develop into something and maybe they can't. But, rest assured, any team that drafts a WR in the top half of the 1st is gonna have their WR coach spend a significant amount of time with that kid. That's a big investment you're making. Gotta protect your investments.
