    I don't disagree with you.

    Agree on Daniels that's who my nephew wants as the Raiders QB.

    I'm hoping teams get this wrong and draft at least 6 maybe 7 QB's in the 1st round .... the more the merrier for damn sure

    1) Ari

    3) Jac
    4)@ Bal

    Re: Ranking 15 best wide receivers in 2024 NFL Draft class

    Im really liking Steve Smith's persepctive on the WR class.



    I had a date cancelled last night, so I got to watch a few of them. He brings a unique perspective to the eval process.

    a Few highlights:

    -Loves, loves Polk. "He's a dog".

    -Malachi Corley - Not suprisingly, loves him. Calls him the steal of the draft.

    -Brendan Rice- gave him a comp of Pachecho, which made me laugh, because I knew exactly what he meant. He is an angry route runner.

    -Tez Walker- says he should have stayed in school another year. I imagine its because of his hands.

    -AD Mitchell- in this vid, he says he's a "90 percent body catcher". But he did another vid on Mitchell specifically and kinda retracted the comment. Now says, after watching him more, he's a top 5 WR.

    -Xavier Leggette- You could tell he really likes him. Gave a comp of a slightly better DK Metcalf. When the Doofus who's with him asked if he meant, "DK Metcalf now or when he was drafted?" He just smiled and repeated it. I got to watch his video of Leggette specifically, he brought up everyone's concern...the 1 year of productivity. He questioned whether it was like a player in the NFL playing for a contract year. Said several times...which Leggette are you getting? But in the end, you could tell he liked him. And said you can't wait until the 2nd round. He broke down one play, a 10-12 yard comeback route. And pointed out how quick he comes to a stop and turns. It was like a step and a half. His eval of Leggette would make me better about taking him in the 1st (I'd still want Mitchell 1st).

    He's really a good listen. I recommend it.

    Leggette is the guy whose train I've been aboard for awhile now. And I think he'll be there at 28.

    Man that dude has always been hard to listen to. Barely coherent and seemingly is doing battle with the words coming out of his mouth.

    Saving grace here was he read off of notes…and he did offer up some decent analysis.

    Oh and Gooby…the Leggette hype train is going to be full steam by the time the draft arrives.

    I have no idea what's going to happen with the draft. All I do know is that the first 3 picks will be QBs and by the teams with the original picks...and the Raiders will take Worthy at 13 overall. Beyond that I don't know.

    Yeah. I'm hearing the Cheats may be leaning towards JJ McCarthy. I pray they do because a) he's another Mac Jones and b) it pushes another (Maye or Daniels) QB down for a team to want to take high.

    That would be a lovely outcome. JJ is probably going to be worse than Mac Jones. The more bums they pick up the better.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see the Jets draft a QB. Rodgers has this season left, at best.

    The Raiders might take a QB Michael Penix Jr.

    They do love speed so you might be spot on.

    Penix Jr. they may be able to trade back into round one for

    Do they have two 1st rounders?

    Jets will move up to get one of the top 3 WR's is my guess.

    Whatever they picked up in free agency isn't gonna be enough.

    In one of the vids I was watching, he said he'd like to learned Spanish. but then he stopped and said, "but I'm still working on English" and burst out laughing.

    IF someone wants Leggette, he's not making it to the bottom of the 2nd. Im sure most GMs remember the DK Metcalf draft. They aren't going to let that happen again. Id prefer Mitchell or Thomas, in a trade up..but if they are both gone, Leggette would be my guy at 28.

    Hahahah. That is hilarious. Gotta love America where a guy who can’t speak is paid to…speak.

    Ya you’re right he won’t be there at 60…Beanie will have to trade up in the second…this is why I’d rather trade down out of the first and GET a pick rather than give one up.

    Harrison was our unanimous number one receiver, and for good reason. Harrison is the most NFL-ready WR to come out of college in recent history. He hails from legendary NFL bloodlines, and with that comes immense expectations.

    2. Malik Nabers, LSU

    Nabers was either two or three on every ballot and earned the most second-place votes. Nabers plays like he has nitro booster on his back, and can shift gears like a finely tuned sports car.

    3. Rome Odunze, Washington

    While Odunze earned a few second-place votes, he was also as low as six on one ballot. Odunze was dominant at Washington, turning in back-to-back 1000-yard seasons. He does numerous things well and is a playmaker that is capable of being successful on all three levels of the field.








    kinda hard to agree with some of these articles when they leave Ricky Persall completely off the list, he clearly is top 10.

    He has 9" hands. Unless they switch to the kids nerf football that's a problem, especially in any weather conditions.

    He’s getting artificially hyped just like so many other mediocre QBs that led a NCAA Title Team.

    Vince Young, Matt Leinart, TIM TEBOW???, Mac Jones, Stetson Bennet (he wasn’t a first rounder but still over drafted by a ton)

    The only good one was War Eagle Newton.

    Maybe....barely. But I doubt it.

    The two draft analysts I respect the most, Scouts, Inc. and The Athletics Dane Brugler have Pearsall at #10 and #15 respectively.
