Re: So O'dell Beckham Jr did this today...

Is Beckham a little overrated? As this forums premier LSU homer I should love him and he has great hands, quickness and route running......OK hes good. Hes so cocky. I guess the great ones are. Lets hope Dural can become the next Tiger to become a star NFL receiver. If he makes the team Ill shut up about the Saints not having former Tigers on the roster. Dural is probably more athletic than Beckham. I look at skill players track and field performances a lot. Dural high jumped 6"10 and won state in the 200m dash running 21.1. Beckham ran a pedestrian 22.2 though he was a standout triple jumper. I love to tell people I was taller n faster than Beckham. 21.7 200m dash. 6"1. If only I had 11 inch hands and a 40+ inch vert. Devery Henderson also ran a 21.1 200m dash. I could easily see Dural filling the Devery Henderson role in the Saints offense. Watch his LSU highlights. He and Michael Thomas could become a phenomenal duo.

I just don't see it for Dural... at least not this year + he's been injured. Not being available at practices could make it difficult to crack a roster spot. If you aren't a hot name or high draft pick, you must be available for duty.

Yea he never has regained the speed he showed his first three years at LSU after tearing his hamstring from bone. Im being very optimistic. Hell get cut. Maybe practice squad. Tommylee Lewis and Coleman looking good too.

Dural is an excellent PS candidate and should benefit from playing with real quarterbacks...

Terrelle Pryor does this stuff: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...h-scary-upside


Drew Brees has large hands as well, 10 .

Pryor is a good one, but he's no O'dell Beckham...In fact, Michael Thomas is knocking on Beckham's back door...

We are going to find out. Pryor was dealing with an awful QB situation last year and still did amazing. He's 6'4, blazing speed and has been working all off season to improve. They say he's sick with learning the position like Brees sick; staying late, last one to leave.

He wanted to be in New Orleans. Hopefully he still feels that way in free agency.

The Saints are not paying top FA $ for a WR when they have Brees at QB and a pretty darn good WR coach.
