Post Ware at 40?
SI just annointed Ware best athlete in the draft. How do you feel about drafting him with our second round pick? He is an incredible athlete. A WR with 4.4 speed and a 6-6 frame would be scary. It is all about projection. Will he be able to develop as a player to the point where his measurables come into play? There is so much upside I would consider him at 40 depending on who else might be there like a Mike Roth or Demarcus Ware guy.

Did you mean Jones at 41? If so, I would take him if available.

Matt Jones looks like a stud at the combine, but where would we put him? #3 WR, TE, or even a #3 QB? A 6-6 QB would be nice so he could see over those DL. I haven't been impressed with Jones as much as I have over his versatility. He needs a true position though, and he hasn't shown me that. I'd take Roth or Ware over Jones.

I've never really seen a qb that tall. I sure he would be converted to WR. I would like a speed rusher in round two, so for me it is a moot point.

There's some tall QBs in this draft. Andrew Walter from Az St is 6-6 as is Derek Anderson from Oregon St. Dan Orlovsky is 6-5. Alex Smith is even 6-4.

LOL, yes, OK, that is what I meant. Thanks for the correction. I did not mean to imply the 40 yard dash time.

I would take a shot at him. I had heard he can catch really well.

Quote:
We charted every pass thrown to him during the Senior Bowl week, and [he] caught all but one," one personnel director said.

So, as a receiver, he's bigger than Southern California's Mike Williams, he's faster, he's more explosive and he might have better hands.

Maybe, but we need depth at other positions as well....

But you can't rely on CRog staying healthy...and Az isn't a reliable #2 guy IMO. His place is the slot as a #3 man. We need depth. Swinton and Kircus don't cut it in my book. I do like Swinton though.

Jones played well all year. The game that stands out was last season when he took Tennesse to 4 overtimes. Jones is a football player who ever drafts him will get a steal.

The way the lions draft I cant see us taking him. But someone like the Steelers would defentily grab him

The Steelers need a TE. If they miss out on Heath, I could see them taking Jones, otherwise I would say Heath is a solid guess. Jones would fit well in their offense though, and with his speed - watch out Ds. It's too bad we play em next season. I don't know if Bly or Bryant could cover someone like Jones who's 6-6 and runs a 4.3
