    I was going to say Iowa State WR Hakeem Butler. 6'6" 225. I was thinking a mid rounder, but I just saw a mock with him going to the Bills at 9. :lolol: Guess he's not a sleeper...

    I just heard an interview with him on SiriusXM. Seems like a dude who has his head on straight.

    Kendall is reportedly going to hit the high to mid 4.2s. If he does that, regardless of how raw he is, his stock will soar for certain just on that alone. If he tests out well in the agility, vertical and long jump drills, he is worthy of being a top 75 player.

    Justin Layne for me. Sure, he is still learning the position but this is not Brian Allen levels of learning. He switched positions after being recruited from High School; his Freshman year while being listed as a receiver, primarily played corner. Got better year after year.


    Should he blow up the combine, he is worth a look in Round Two. Doubt he lasts until Round Three and, pending on the weigh ins for the corners, not worthy of a top 20 selection.

    Yep. No doubt about it.



    Keep in mind who his teacher is. While Calvin Johnson may not reveal all of his secrets, he will give young Butler a good general idea of how the NFL works. Besides, it never hurts to have a teacher who was the game's most dominant Wide Receiver when he played right?!

    I saw that mock, that guy is smoking dope. No way he's a top 10 pick. His routes and hands need work.

    I like him for us because we can immediately be used as Bryant was. He's not as fast but he's sub 4.5 plus his size can send him down the field to open things up for JuJu and Washington.

    See where his projection ends up after he tests tomorrow.

    This is my favorite part here, everyone knows the top guys but knowing the lower level guys and finding a gem is more fun imo. Here are guys I liked either from the Shrine game, Senior bowl or game film:

    RB's
    Love, Bryce RB Stanford
    Brossette, Nick RB LSU
    Armstead, Ryquell RB Temple
    Pollard, Tony RB Memphis
    Holyfield, Elijah RB Georgia

    Ingold, Alec FB Wisconsin

    WR's
    Sills, David WR West Virginia
    Godwin, Terry WR Georgia
    Hardman, Mecole WR Georgia
    Isabella, Andy WR Massachusetts
    Renfrow, Hunter WR Clemson
    Doss, Keelan WR Cal Davis
    Custis, Jamal WR Syracuse


    EDGE
    Hollins, Justin EDGE Oregon
    Brailford, Jordan EDGE Oklahoma St.
    Banogu, Ben EDGE TCU


    DL
    Gaines, Greg DL Washington
    Mack, Daylon DL Texas A&M
    Omenihu, Charles DL Texas
    Slayton, Chris DL Syracuse
    Wise, Daniel DL Kansas
    Saunders, Khalen DL Western Illinois
    Russell, Dontavius DL Auburn
    Keke, Kingsley DL Texas A&M
    Collier, L.J. DL TCU

    LB
    Smith, Cameron LB USC
    Takitaki, Taki LB BYU
    Greenlaw, Dre LB Arkansas


    CB
    Johnson, Lonnie CB Kentucky
    Peters, Jamal CB Mississippi St.
    Jackson, Mike CB Miami
    Baity, Derrick CB Kentucky

    S
    Wingard, Andrew S Wyoming



    Of these guys if I had to pick just one it is Hollins, he could be a steal round 3-4 and offer us the pass rush we have been longing for.

    Probably a guy most have forgotten about is:

    LB Koron Crump, formerly of Arizona St.

    Had 9 sacks back in 2016. Had 4 sacks after 2 games in 2017 before tearing his ACL. Came back in 2018 but never recovered from the knee injury so he pulled the plug on the season.

    His knee may be pooched for all we know. But he is a 6'3 220lb game changer with incredible speed.

    I absolutely would take a flier on him late in the draft or as a UDFA.

    Watching the combine sent me to watch Foster Moreau, TE from LSU. One of the commentators said that Moreau reminded him of Randy Macho Man Savage when run blocking, and I like TEs who can block. No disappointment after watching a few games. The guy is a feisty, effective blocker, both in the run game and in pass protection. He was not used often in the passing game, but when he was your can see the potential. I remember one play vs Georgia which was a long pass to the WR up the right sideline. Moreau had released up the seam, and as the camera was tracking the ball you can see Moreau in the background busting up the seam 30+ yards downfield with a 2 step lead on the safety, open for an easy TD.

    I'm liking him as a 6th round sleeper. He can be a day 1 contributor as a 2nd or 3rd TE, especially in the run game, and he seems to have the tools to be at least as a legit a receiving TE as James. Good sleeper.
