He‘s currently slated as a 7th rounder.And that just boggles my mind. What is it that hes lacking that isn’t moving him up higher On the draft projections?
He did play his bowl game.It may be his last game of meaningful football. He may get drafted and get some time… but I would imagine Hakeem Butler would have played in the bowl game if he knew what his future held.
Yeah, X should play. He is a good WR, but he has dropped several passes this year. Having a good showing against a highly rated team might be what he needs to get him drafted.Love the dude and he’s been everything for us, but right now he’s not in any Top 20 WRs in the draft list. Some have him around 25th WR so he’s likely 6th or 7th round if in the draft at all.
I seem to remember a forum a few weeks ago when we determined he wasn't getting drafted at all. So yeah... He needs to play.He‘s currently slated as a 7th rounder.
What I’ve seen or heard is the biggest concern is the unknown of his route running. ISU runs a pretty basic tree and most of his catches are on the easiest of those routes. Even if the catch is amazing, the routes get more complex against more dynamic defenses than he’s used to.
The other thing is his speed is just average. While he has good size and hands, his measured speed isn’t great.
It will come down to combine for him. If he can alleviate concerns on routes and his speed improves even a fraction, he could get up to a late 4 or early 5 round in my opinion.
