    L'damian Washington is well worth a 6th rounder I think. That is where he is projected. He is 6'4 and runs a 4.3 allegedly. That is freakish for a WR, only other guy in the league with those qualities is Megatron I think... Which I don't think there is any way he becomes Megatron at all because he is just in a class of his own honestly but to have some of those physical traits is impressive. I think if he went to another college instead of Mizzou he would have had a much better career. Most of the passes are going Dorial Green-Beckum's way. He had a pretty nice game vs Texas A&M and had a great TD catch on a fade route

      Here is a link to great video about Henry Josey coming back from a gruesome knee injury. I am glad the guy has bounced back and is playing well.

        I'm with ya on the La'damian Washington. I just watched the A&M tape, and have seen him a bit througout the season , watching some mizzo games. Kids got some wheels, good size, made some really slick catches throughout that A&M game, including that sweet diving 3rd down catch. I'm sold on this kid as early as the 4th rd..

          Definitely, that catch in the endzone was very difficult to catch and get the feet down. Also that third down play was a nice catch as well. He can fly though! I am curious to see what he clocks at the combine (same with Richardson) because they both just blow past defenders at times. They both have game changing speed.

            ya, hes gonna run very well. He kinda reminds me of jacoby jones type player. Good sized, beats u with speed, can make tough catches, has special teams ability..etc I think Washington would fit well as the 3rd man with Cruz and Randle as the top 2.

              Yeah you could put Washington and Randle on the outside and have Cruz work the slot where I personally think he plays the best at. I do see the Jacoby Jones comparison. Also it looks like Washington has ST's experience. I wonder if he can return at all

                I bet he could return the ball on punts. At worst, at least we know he'll be able to play on ST's, which Barden for example never really could.

                  Yeah it would be nice to have a WR with game changing speed. Cruz is pretty fast I guess but he is quicker and more agile than he is fast. He can definitely spread the field with his speed though and Cruz will be able to work the middle and Randle can do his thing

                    This guy could be a huge sleeper... He is a DE for Nebraska Kearney (Small School) He is 6'5 255 and allegedly has ran as low as a sub 4.4 40 time(4.37). He looks like an absolute freak in this highlight but granted he isnt playing the best talent. He will most likely be at the Senior Bowl so that will be interesting to see how he compares vs other D1 players

                    Here is an article that has just about his whole story. Very interesting and I would recommend it to anyone interested

                      A couple TE's i like alot are Joe Don Dixon of Dixie st and Rob Blanchflower of Umass. They both are similar players, and don't stand overly tall, but are thickly built, and seem like perfect weapons for Eli Manning. Both have above avg hands and are big parts of there respective teams passing attacks. Don Duncan has moved up boards to around the 4th rd as of late, and Blanchflower has seen his stock rise as the season progressed also. Keep a eye on these 2 TE's.

                        Yeah I like Blanchflower ever since I checked him out a while back after you talked about him. He is a nice receiving target for sure and looks like a good blocker as well. He would probably become a personal favorite of Eli the way he plays. I have heard good things about Dixon but haven't really gotten the chance to see anything from him. If he is similar to Blanchflower than he should be pretty solid

                              Yeah I checked out Qua Cox as well and he looks really solid I just wish there was something more recent to see if he has made any more improvements in his game. As for the DE this is his first year starting in football in his life. He was on the team last year but was just a reserve and now they have given him a shot and he is taking advantage of it. He does show good potential I think for someone this is really his first year of football. He is another one of those guys who played basketball and then recently decided to make the transition to football. Here is the article that I was talking about on him. He has worked out with Ziggy Ansah, Mike Tolbert, and others. He definitely has the physical tools it just depends on whether he can learn some better technique and he could be a NFL player for years to come IMO. BTW he looked like a freak on those few ST's clips hahaha he is fast as hell for a DE

                              One of the best kept secrets in the 2014 NFL Draft is a severely little-known hybrid 6’5, 255 pound combo defensive end/outside linebacker prospect named Elhadji Ndiaye. Ndiaye is a native of Senegal, who played soccer growing up. Football? It was an afterthought. That is, until his cousin, former NFL defensive lineman Ogemdi Nwagbuo, saw the potential in Elhadji, and took the youngster under his wing. Ogemdi, a solid vested NFL veteran of the Giants, Chargers, Panthers & Lions, convinced Ndiaye that he had a world of potential in the sport of football, and pushed him to give it a try.

                              “From the start, Ogemdi would come down and meet with me, provide me with all the equipment I needed and we would go out and work on fundamentals and technique. Even while he was in the NFL, he took the time to mentor me and teach me, and supplied anything I needed.” said Ndiaye.

                              Former Arizona Wildcats Head Coach Mike Stoops saw the same early potential, and offered a walk-on spot with a chance to earn a scholarship. But when Stoops was eventually fired, it left Elhadji in limbo.

                              “I really didn’t have a backup school or anywhere else to go. I bided my time playing basketball at prep school (Grossmont College in San Diego, CA), and waited for the right opportunity. A close friend of mine recommended Nebraska-Kearney, and it felt like the right fit. The rest is history.”
                              The raw prospect that only oozed with potential was brought along slowly. Last year, his junior season and first in the sport of football, he was only a reserve and special teams player- only logging 5 tackles on the year.

                              This season, as a senior, Ndiaye was unleashed on the world. He busted loose with 46 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 7 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. Playing with no backup, and with an offense that had a tendency to keep the defense on the field, Elhadji displayed incredible endurance just finishing a game at times. That part about being one of the best kept secrets of the 2014 NFL draft class? Very quietly, Ndiaye has met with scouts from at least 20 NFL teams. It is truly a remarkable turnaround for a young man of tremendously high character, whom came from such humble beginnings.

                              “I always had to work for everything I’ve ever had, and I learned from my father to have a strong work ethic. Growing up that man did everything he could to keep us fed and worked any job he had to to provide for his family. There have been some dark times. I was homeless for a period of time between 2010 & 2011, and last year I couldn’t even afford a plane ticket home for the holidays. I stayed on campus and worked with the track team instead.”

                              Worked with the track team during holiday break? Seriously? Yes. This is a guy that spent this past summer sharpening his skills and developing his body into that of an elite pass rusher. He swam, boxed with Carolina Panthers RB Mike Tolbert, ran wind sprintspracticed technique with his good friend, Detroit Lions 1st round draft pick Ziggy Ansah, ran hills, and even did yoga.

                              “Everything in me was focused on being the best player I could be this season. I was determined, and only surrounded myself with the best people.”

                                Richard Rodgers - TE Cal - Big TE who can get down the field. He is a Junior, but there has been talk of him declaring since Cal is so terrible.

                                Josh Stewart - WR Oklahoma St - Another Junior but a perfect slot option in the Pros. Excellent returner who is very versatile. Basically what we thought Jernigan could be.

                                Corey Robinson - OT South Carolina - Massive OT with the feet to possibly play LT yet he barely gets talked about. Would not be surprised if he is a top 2 round guy when the draft rolls around. Think Marcus McNeill

                                Rashad Reynolds - CB Oregon St. - Very good corner. Was as good as Poyer was last year. A little down this year but has ability.

                                Denzel Perryman - LB Miami - Excellent LB prospect. Can play inside or out and is scheme versatile. Would be an excellent 3-4 ILB or a 4-3 WLB. Could start in year 1 and will probably be available in round 3.
                                would love robinson. he is a product of my high school (just 3 peated as state 3a champs btw ). he would join bruce carter and guy whimper as nfl players from my school and more are coming....trust me! i do love corey as you said he is massive, even spent some time at DT so he has a mean streak. would be a great addition. i said this last offseason and ill say it again, if we dont come away from this draft with 2-3 starting quality o lineman we will have another crap season.
