OK, digging for potential talent, I came upon Jasper Collins (WR).

OK, I was a little bummed that we didn't draft T.Y. Hilton last year, but that hasn't stopped me from trying to root out that small college talent with great potential. Jasper Collins is probably a name few of us have heard, but dude was a beast last year in division III ball, gaining 1694 Yards last year.

One thing of note is that he is already being scouted by the pats:

Shorts briefed Collins for a recent meeting with Patriots wideouts coach Chad O’Shea, who flew to Stark County to conduct a private session.

He also returns kicks.

Cecil Shorts came out of Mt. Union and he's doing pretty well, on the Jaguars of all teams.

I wouldn't mind a late pick on him.

wth, rayzor? would you have said the same thing about cecil shorts, pierre garcon, or t.y. hilton (even though he was from a different school). you would have been scoffing at Victor Cruz also, right?

Collins is at least projected to be drafted in the mid to late rounds. I suppose it doesn't move you that he has been scouted by the likes of the Pats, among others? What in the world?

I love small school WR prospects - HUGE potential with very little risk - but what's with the "next Legatron" comparison?? That's not really reaching for much...

So basically since the Patriots are scouting him he must be the next best thing?

I'm trying to recall all the great WR's the Pats have drafted lately, but strangely I'm drawing a blank.

Why use Legatron in the title? He's a kicker. :/

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
