    PFT says he'll run under a 4.6 and drop into the early 2nd. If he runs from a 4.55 to 4.6, he could fall to us. Who knows.

    I had heard the same thing about Jarrett....his speed, or lack thereof, will drop him like a rock.

    Now, with a good combine, a guy I see us taking is Bowe from LSU. Speed, hands, physical player who fights for the ball...and highly productive throughout his career...a leader. Just TT's type of guy. I met a dude at Phoenix airport last week wearing an LSU jersey and asked him about Bowe..turns out he was a former player and teammate. Had nothing but great things to say about the guy and stated that his few dropsies have been corrected with eye surgery...one of his eyes was way out there and still, a highly productive guy.

    Meacham is also another possibility is his hands show well at the combine.

    I think I've already confessed my heterosexual man crush on Dwayne Bowe.

    Anthony Gonzalez, I've seen some draft boards having the Packers pick this guy up in the 2nd.

    Who is he? Do we have any threads dedicated to this young man? YouTube clips?

    Anthony Gonzalez is my other man crush. He played WR for Ohio State, next to Ted Ginn. He doesn't have Ginn speed, but he can still run in the 4.35-4.45 range. He's about 6'0", 200 pounds, tough as nails. He's essentially the white Donald Driver.

    He won't play against the Packers. The voices in my head told me so! :)


    Do you think he'd help the Packers??

    Johnson is a future pro-bowler and hall of famer. A 10, Jarret is a slow possession receiver (4.57 40 speed) and in the NFl will get off the line slow and get creamed by a linebacker. Grade him about an 8 based on leaping and hands but hardly will be a big impact player at the next level. Not much better than Mike Williams.

    You mis read my post.

    I'm not grading them as an overall player in that post. I'm grading them on one thing and that's going up and getting the ball. On all the tape I've seen that's the one and only thing Jarrett does best in the Draft. I would grade Johnson probably 9.5 to 10 overall and Jarrett probably a 7.5 to 8 pending what he runs in the 40. Dwayne Bowe would probably grade out similar. Ginn Jr. as well. Overall though Johnson is the best receiver prospect of this decade. Ahead of Larry Fitzgerald in my opinion.

    Johnson is far from a future Hall of Famer though. He's probably close to a "can't miss" but you never know what type of situation he could land in.

    Johnson probably has the best chance to be a real difference maker in the NFL. hes a rare combo of size speed and hands its like Reggie Bush, theres not a guy who comes out every year in the draft u can compare him to.

    The combination of lack of speed and not being real physical bothers me greatly about Jarrett.

    In the NFL he will be going up against strong, fast corners and safeties and yes he will win a few jump balls but that's about it.

    I'd rather get a guy that can jump back to warp speed a step after making his cut. Those are the guys that make it happen in the NFL.

    I see Jarrett like a lot of former college Heisman winners. Great players at that level but lacking physical traits needed to make it in the NFL.

    I predict Jarrett's 40 time at the combines will be his demise.
