  • David Douglas?

    Saw this kid in the "top plays from camp" video, I was wondering who he was, and if he has any shot at making the team. They are saying he is having a great camp. I assume he is an undrafted rookie.

    Yeah, he's an UDFA from Arizona U. Runs a 4.46 40. And based on what I've seen of him in camp, he has good hands to. So far I would say Douglas, Randle, Jernigan & Hixon have distinguished themselves for that 3rd WR spot.

      Tommy made a point of mentioning him during one of his pressers. He was talking about how the 3rd WR spot is a great competition right now and went out of his way to specifically call out Douglas.

        Coaches have been talking him up. Unless they are mis-directing the media intentionally, I think Barden's days are numbered. No one is talking about him.

          Got to agree, this guy probably makes Barden super expendable.

            I'm afraid I'm going to have to agree....A lot of these these young guys seem to already be ahead of Barden on the depth chart

                From what was written today Barden is quietly impressing people....not starting an argument...but maybe we all need to let the coaches sort this out...instead of drawing conclusions based on opinion and bias.......just seems like every year there is some undrafted wide receiver that this board immediately anoints the next Jerry Rice.....Please don't point out Cruz...I am well aware of his story,but he is one in like 100......most of them are packing groceries
                "When I was 15, I could not believe how dumb my father was.....when I was 25, I could not believe how much he had learned in 10 years"

                1st to use the phrase "In Reese we trust"

                  Dude, chill out! Nobody annointed anyone as the next Jerry Rice. It was simply stated that he may be giving Barden a run for his money for the LAST wide receiver spot.

                    I do not need to "chill out"I wasn't getting upset I was just pointing out that this happens every camp....Anyone recall Mix?and it seems like there is one every year,and other than Cruz they don't even make the team let alone make an impact.....bottom line is let's not get to excited before there is something to get excited about.

                      Ramses Barden (don’t scoff) has something different about him this year. He, too, is more focused, but it’s showing in a leader-like way with his teammates. With WR Hakeem Nicks on the sideline, he’s letting his play on the field show what he can be, but it appears that there’s also a maturity that came to camp with him.
                      Life is like a Giants game, you never know what you are going to get.

                        No one got excited and nobody said he was going to be a big factor. Just that he MIGHT make the team. Stop exagerating.

                            I don't know...On the last Big Blue Kickoff show Anita Marks said he's been up and down. He made a really nice play and then on the next play he runs out of bounds and that pissed off Eli and TC. She also said on slant plays the smaller CB's are covering him and are able to knock the ball out of his hands. At 6'-5" you should be able to have your way with the smaller CB's.

                              Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and mine is that many have brushed off Barden too soon. I've watched him closely over the last few years and I believe that he has a lot to offer. Naysayers will always be what they are but I personally havent lost hope in Barden. I think he will truly make a name for himself once he starts getting more opportunities in games.
