Like Jet Fumes said, lots of wide outs here. That's why the talk of moving up in the draft to take Rogers or Johnson doesn't make sense. They have proven they can draft well late with WR's. Defence, then offence guys.
What the hell.....I remind you, he didn't start his junior year!! Granted, this is the draft, we are looking for some potential. He did get hurt, so I give the guy credit for trying to play.
This from his senior year. [img]http://graphics.fansonly.com/photos/schools/scar/sports/m-footbl/auto_headshot/p-Adkisson.jpg[/img]

USC senior wide receiver James Adkisson is scheduled to have an MRI performed on his knee later today to determine the extent of an injury he suffered at last night's game against the University of Virginia. Adkisson injured the knee returning a kickoff. The initial prognosis was that there could be possible ligament damage. A full report is not expected until Monday morning.
Losing James Adkisson would be a blow to USC's passing game, offensive coordinator Skip Holtz said Sunday. "We didn't have a whole lot to go with a deep passing game to begin with," said Skip, "and losing James would be a setback. He has really come on the past few weeks and had developed into a big-play threat

[b] Another sleeper I like is Anton Page, Texas Tech!!
He has very good hands and makes most of his plays around the goal line on the fade route. Great leaper. 4.48 40 time at 6 feet 5. A JUCO guy who was injured last year. If he gets the playing time who needs to show his potential. Could be a big time riser at the combine and TT workouts. Not afraid to go over the middle and take a hit. Can throw a pretty mean block!
Also Mike Bush, Washington State.
A bit skinny, but 6'6"!! Two-sport star, turning out for the Cougars basketball squad. Should step in and be a major TD threat in the red zone. Needs to add some weight to his lanky frame
I can go on and on!! [/b][/quote]
Of course you can go on and on, it's not to hard to do when you copy and paste from this site, word for word, lol:
