When the smoke clears

Ability:

-Tough fighter for yards, and will bring it when blocking
-If speed kills then this is the grim reaper
-Mostly good hands, but needs to be coached to always catch the ball at his highest possible point
-Raw running routes
-Excels at returning kicks, toting the rock, and taking it to the house

Work ethic:

-No question about his mindset to grind

NFL projection:

-Mainly viewed as a #1 receiver, and can double as a back

Work ethic:

-Smart, instinctive, and unselfish player

Work ethic:

-Might be his most prolific quality

NFL projection:

Addendum:

If you feel tricked into reading yet another mock, with my title, then I have done it! I have cracked the secret journalistic formula! Oh and sorry if you didn't get anything out of it.

Discussion:

I would guess the first point of discussion would be none other than picking a WR with the coveted first round pick, and how could he fall this far? He has all the skills, talent and mindset to be a perennial on the pro bowl roster. However why in world would I take a WR, with Welker joining black and Decker? For this mock it was purely Best Player Available, and I would expect Cordarrelle would beat Decker for a roster spot. This would give us the best receiving duo in the league (sorry falcons), with Welker in the slot that makes the best triplet of wideouts in the league, and Deck as the #4...well could be the best group of WR's ever. How in the world could he be available in this spot? I feel there is a chance due to a likely run on similarly talented defensive and offensive lineman. Mix in the rise to glory of Tavon Austin after the combine, add in some good CB's and reaches for QB's. Perhaps this impacter would just drop right in our lap, the teams above us tend to have a lot of need besides WR's. I hope to continue the discussion below in the comments, thanks for reading!
