Allen Robinson ahhh the forgotten man lol

i love the skill set. he aint a burner but plays really tough.

Round one knock i have on him is his lack of consistency. he runs hot and cold but that could be do to a lot factors at penn state so i give him a flyer there.

biggest issue is route running skill. to give him the benefit of doubt i would say they are ok at best. you draft him in round one based on mostly upside.

if he get this straighten up he has a chance of being something really special.

Cody Latimer - Indiana - now i have my eyes on this kid. he could be a major steal in the draft

L'Damien Washington - Mizzou
he is a late round version of Allen Robinson IMO. if the coaching sinks in he has the skill set to be something special at half the risk

all the others are solid players but those two are the ones i am watching and think about the most

Agreed, i think Allen Robinson is special, but if he goes to the wrong organization its all over for him, the good thing is route running can be cleaned up. Speed can be deceiving, im more concerned wit in game play/speed than being a workout warrior ha. Seems to be why jarvis landry, jordan matthews and other guys are flying under the radar, its the deepest wr draft for a reason...a few of these guys will turn out to be big time players over some of these bigger names thrown out there.

But latimer, yes! Only bad news on cody, is ppl are starting to recognize him and move him up the boards bc he's getting healthy. The Talent is definitely there, to go along with size. Physical, athletic, good speed & hands. The feeling is mutual my friend. Hopefully teams and organizations continue to sleep on these guys and they fall right into our lap. Smokescreens maybe tho...i guess we'll have to wait until the draft to see teams true value on certain players ha

Yea, like washington as well obviously, but my biggest knock is consistency and he needs to add weight!! Ha. Looks like he's gonna fly away at times lol, i guess the 6'4 length doesnt help

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Cody Latimer at 6’2” 215lbs with an arm length of 32 5/8” made money at the pro day when he turned in 4.44 40 and athleticism to challenge any wr in the draft. shame he played at IU.

on phase of his game i really like is the dude is a blocker

Route running and tree progression is the key area improvement he needs to work on. but a lot of that could be do to playing at IU.

I thought it was a no brainier in the fifth to pick the kid if he did ok at his pro day. well he blew the doors of the place.

now a third round pick is not that far fetched. if he is there in the fourth round for us i will be amazed and he will be one of the players a top my wish list.

Yep! Depending on who you ask, he's 6'3 and i'll gladly take that. Yep route running tree is always somethin to get better at. I would not be surprised in the least if he goes 2nd round to a team who covets him and is wr needy(please not carolina!)

But it does look to be 3rd RD at the absolute latest like you said. He's buzzing and shooting up on every analysts draft boards that ive seen, and its definitely justified

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

2014 NFL Draft: Week 4 Pro Days takeaways - CBSSports.com

4. Healthy and movin' up. Due to a partially torn hamstring, Georgia Tech pass rusher Jeremiah Attaochu didn't work out at the NFL combine last month, but was good-to-go on Friday for Georgia Tech's pro day. And, as expected, he was impressive. Attaochu ran his 40-yard dash times in the late 4.5, early 4.6 range with a 37.5-inch vertical jump, 4.64 short shuttle and 7.28 three cone drill. His 1.55 10-yard split would have ranked him tops among all linebackers at the combine.

Attaochu, who was born in Nigeria before moving to the Washington, D.C., area, set the Georgia Tech all-time record for career sacks (31.5) and continues to be one of the more underrated prospects in this class. He's extremely active, using his athleticism, motor and heady instincts to win off the edge, collapse inside or find the quarterback whichever way possible. Attaochu is still unrefined in some areas, something he also showed during his pro day performance, but there is definitely some untapped potential there as a 21-yeard old who didn't start playing football until high school. In the late first or early second round, Attaochu is going to make a team that implements a 3-4 defense very happy.

Yesir been watchin him for a while, you're bout the only other guy ive seen that has a man crush on him, and you have every reason to feel that way about him haha.

Dood is a straight baller.... Call me crazy but i feel he's better than Kony Ealy & Dee Ford by a wiiide margin yet those 2 are gettin all the hype. ATT(yes i just made that name for him) is so explosive off the line and violent its kinda sad watchin the OT go through torture like that over and over lol.

ATT Reminds me of a much more polished Ziggy Ansah, which is scary cuz he's only getting better.

I believe if healthy he can step in year one and be just as productive as Junior and his upside is much higher as well.

Draft is too exciting this year...

Actually Sarik, am as bullish on Ole Miss' Donte Moncrief and Clemson's Martavis Bryant...

My problem with Allen Robinson is that he has adequate speed, injury prone and disappeared in difficult matchups...

Solid pickups as well, also in my shortlist of wr's to grab as listed on my previous post. I like the upside of bryant a little more than moncrief tho... Better speed as well at 6'4..

I agree, 4.6 flat isnt elite but plays much faster, tape confirms that imo.

I think injury, average qb play, having to build chemistry with a new qb and learning new systems had something to do with his inconsistencies even at that he still had a 1400+ yrd season with 11TD's and broke records.

I think people tend to forget he had a new coach and system from 2011-2012 and then had a new qb going into 2013. Could never really get familiar with anything and he's still only 20years old and expected to be a leader on that team... Thats asking a whole heck of a lot outta the kid.

His upside is All-pro and i believe he can definitely achieve that if placed in an organization to succeed like the Saints.

Can be every bit of a larry fitz, jordy nelson, alshon jeffery "type" player which all ran between that 4.5-4.6 time like Allen.

Guess i just have a bigger man crush...watch the tape again and again haha

He has the time to grow and learn, doesnt have to take over at number 1 rite away... just like alshon, Colston can be his brandon marshall for a year or two..

Re: 2014 NFL Draft


I like that even at 20 years old he still carries himself in a professional, mature manner. Doesnt come with off the field issues either...
