1st Round DeAndre Hopkins/WR/Clemson: Hopkins stepped up his game in 2012 and as a result has risen up draft boards. The junior proved to be reliable and also showed a nose for the end zone. His game is polished and Hopkins offers the tools to be a second wideout at the next level.
The thing I liked most about Boyd was his calmness.
Never looked nervous even though the pressure was high. I think he will be a great addition to an NFL team.
Does anybody know anything about that Vanderbilt QB Jordan Rodgers?
Looks like he isnt projected to be as good as his brother. What do you guys think?
As with any sibling of an NFL star, Jordan will be unfairly compared to his older brother. Frankly, Jordan is shorter and possesses significantly less sizzle on his fastball than the Packers' star, and is a borderline draftable prospect entering 2012.
Some scouts feel he is only earning any attention due to the success of his brother. There are elements to his game, however, that deserve closer inspection.
Like his older brother, Jordan has quick feet and is a threat to scramble when the defense isn't paying attention. He finished second on the team a year ago with 420 rushing yards and scored four touchdowns. He also possesses very good touch and the courage to step up in the pocket and deliver passes with the defense bearing down on him. Rodgers was far from a superstar last season.
He only completed 50% of his passes and threw more interceptions (10) than touchdowns (nine) in 2011, but almost engineered upsets against Arkansas and on the road versus Florida. While these numbers fall far short of his brother's statistics in his first action at Cal (61.6% completion rate, 19 TDs-five INTs), there is enough here to keep a close eye on Rodgers' development this season as a possible late-blossoming prospect for the 2013 draft.
So it sounds like Jordan Rodgers may get drafted as a project based on his bloodlines.
Maybe good value in the 6th round or later to a team that has an established QB.
I like Boyd a lot.
I watch a lot of ACC ball and he's always impressed me
And it's not close.
I love the revisionist history that's been going on around here: Damian Williams, Ronald Johnson, Patrick Turner, CJ Gable, and Joe McKnight were all such highly regarded prospects :rolleyes:. Clemson has 2 first round receivers.
Coples had alot more production than Mingo his last year. With that kind of speed and athletic ability, you want it to show in production. Can't get off blocks
I think after the combine that Geno Smith will be the clear cut number one overall QB in the draft. WV oline and coaching staff wiped out any clear evaluation of Smith this past season.
Jets should just wait a year for drafting a qb. There are no real options in this draft.
This guy is the real deal and we should definitely draft him.
