I haven't seen him play, but his smallish frame and injuries are a concern. He needs to beef up a little bit.

My 15-year-old son is 6'2"-ish and weighs around 220.

Holy cow! 6 2 220? Is he playing football?

I really think Jared Abbrederis will still be available in the mid rounds for several reasons.

*Injury history. While i don't think it's anything to be scared about, it will undoubtedly scare some gm's away. He's even pulled out of the senior bowl because of injury.

*Also the amount of wr's coming out. Nearly 20 underclassmen, not to mention the seniors

If we could go

1. Wr

2. Ot

3. Cb

And still get him in the 4th or 5th it'd be a coup. I would literally pass out from unbridled joy

So just wanted to throw it out there that I had the pleasure of meeting Jared and his Gf when they came into my store to get setup with their first ever smartphones (iPhone). I asked him a lot about playing in the NFL. He was in California to begin training for the combine and senior bowl. I told him I was a Panther fan and hopes he gets picked up by us and can catch passes from Cam.

Nah, he's into B-ball more, but perhaps in the coming year.  He has this thing about becoming a rapper... :mellow:

Just watched some videos on that Abbrederis guy. He's smallish but he's very good at using his head and hips to misdirect DBs. Would love to get him with a mid round pick if possible (as our second WR of the draft).

I think he will go higher than 4-5 round. I think he will be gone by the 3rd round.

I think he could flourish here. His speed and agility are average, but he's very physical. Scouts are comparing him to Sherman but he could be next Chancellor.

Yeah, I try not to get too worked up when a big guy with skills is spotted at the corner position, especiallyat the pre-draft bowls because I know Sherman is going to be the go-to comparison. If we all want to get in our time machine, Josh Norman was that same guy two years ago at the Senior Bowl IIRC.

But, he showed a lot more closing speed and ability to close on the ball than I expected.

Perhaps Victor Cruz 2.0 with a higher ceiling (literally and figuratively)? I'm asking.

I think that's a fair comparison, maybe not quite that dynamic. I'd probably say a more consistent Dwayne Bowe.
