    We're gonna have to talk about this 4.19 kid from Northern Iowa

    I know, I know. I didn't want to either.

    http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...e-40-4048.html

    I thought - whatever. We got all kinds of wannabe track stars trying pretend they can play ball. Guys like Goodman, who look sloppy in drills... who cares if some kid ran a 4.19 from Northern Iowa...


    Then i watched some highlights... albeit Youtube selectively chosen.. but nonetheless. You'll see what I'm saying. If there's anything I know how to evaluate, it's WRs. ...Not saying he's worth top 2 round selection, but...

    All I'm gonna say is - if he doesn't make it in the NFL, it won't be because he can't get separation, or adjust to the ball.

    He actually looks really good, you're right......adjusts to the ball extremely well and looks very fluid and natural

    Not sure if the 4.19 is exactly correct but he looks very fast so who knows

    Would take a shot in the middle-late rounds for sure

    Undersized, fast kid from Northern Iowa? It's Kenny Shedd all over again!

    I'd put a flyer in for him as soon as the plateau arrives in the 4th.

    I'd like to see his non-highlights also. Looks great in that youtube video, but why is he rated so low? What's the catch?

    Probably cause it's small school running a pistol-spread like offense. They're a dime a dozen. Stats don't always call attention to the player...

    I dunno man. I just know that his real or unreal 4.19 turned all eyes on Northern Iowa briefly and some, including myself, are officially interested.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm interested. Like I said, that video was impressive. His adjustments and ability to separate actually kind of remind me a bit of Holmes. If his 40 is true, he is worth a look.

    +1. that being said, I liked the way he attacked the ball, we need this. 3rd or 4th round for sure, 2nd if he really runs a 4.19. That's insane speed and the way he looks... 2 for somebody.

    I guy like that can be a threat to score anywhere you line him up. With the proper coaching he can be a weapon. I would take late round flyer on him also.

    Makes me think of Renaldo Skeets Nehemiah.

    I'd take him in the fifth or as a priority UDFA signing. Swopes is another speedy burner that can be had in the 3rd and onwards. Pretty fly for a white guy

    Al Davis resurrected himself so the Raiders could take him in the 1st round.
