Re: 2016 NFL Draft: Best remaining prospects

Have a feeling we may trade back today. A ton of depth in day 2.No reason to stay put and reach if our guy is gone. Would love to see us pick up another rd 4.

Re: 2016 NFL Draft: Best remaining prospects

What about this guy,late or UDFA
Not sure when he is expected to go


WO16KEYARRIS GARRETTWR TULSA
Photo of Keyarris Garrett
GRADE
5.19


4.53 SEC
14 REPS
36.5 INCH
128.0 INCH
7.30 SEC
4.33 SEC
11.72 SEC

6'3" HEIGHT
34 1/2" ARM LENGTH
220LBS. WEIGHT
9" HANDS

OVERVIEW
Garrett looks the part of an NFL receiver, and is the nephew of former Baylor and Atlanta Falcons receiver/return specialist David Mims (whose son, David Mims II, is a 2016 draft prospect out of Texas State and played with Garrett in high school). His career with Tulsa has had its ups and downs, starting with an injury-filled freshman campaign (six games, two catches for 10 yards), but he bounced back by earning second-team All-Conference USA in 2012 (67-845, nine TD receiving). Unfortunately, Garrett couldn't build on that momentum, losing the 2013 campaign lost to a compound fracture in his left leg suffered in the second week of the season (7-68 receiving). His first year back from the injury was good enough to get him back on NFL scouts radars (47-698, five TD, missing two more games due to injury). He fulfilled his promise in his final year with the Golden Hurricane, leading the nation with 1,588 receiving yards and finishing in the top ten with 96 receptions while scoring eight times. Garrett garnered first-team All-Conference USA accolades for his efforts.

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS
Long*-limbed and tall with sinewy build. Extreme arm length providing unique catch *radius. Can go up and high-*point the ball over most cornerbacks he faced. Able to stack cornerbacks and keep them out of the deep throw once he gets over top of them. Long strides and build*up speed seems to catch cornerbacks off guard on vertical routes. Had 28 catches of 20-plus yards in 2015.

WEAKNESSES
Long legs hinder get*-off against press. Takes awhile to get into his routes and is unable to sink hips and explode out of his breaks to create separation. Has extremely small hands for a receiver his size. Charged with 13 drops over last two years. Struggles mightily to finish contested catches. Routes are basic and somewhat sloppy underneath. Too often waits on throws rather than working back to them.

NFL COMPARISON Rodney Smith

BOTTOM LINE Garrett's production combined with his exceptional length should catch the eyes of NFL general managers right off the bat, but tape study exposes his issues with route quickness underneath and securing contested catches. Garrett probably won't post a blazing 40-yard dash at the combine, but he does have some vertical talent and will have to prove to teams that he can become a consistent finisher and a big-play threat in order to become an NFL contributor.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

if he's available late or as UDFA, as you mentioned, I think he'd be well worth a look. I'm tired of seeing them go after fat guys with no real track record late in the draft, thinking they can coach the terrible out of them.
