I remember him for his senior bowl week. He's a very good route runner, sneaky fast, but has inconsistent hands. I don't think size is an issue. His toughness makes up for it. For what it's worth, I had him as the No. 10 wide receiver in last April's draft.


I remember watching him and thinking he was a Packers type WR. Very good route runner who's smooth but doesn't have his raw physical talent doesn't screaming out. He didn't remind me of any one guy but I though in some ways he looked like a mix of Nelson and Jones.

I think his fluidity is a lot like Jones as they're both very smooth thoughout their movements and I'd say his body control reminded me of Nelson some. Now he's not as good as either of them in those but he did remind me some of them in that way.

Depending on the severity of the injuries I think Cobb or Perry might be eligible for the IR designated to return but that would put them out for at least 8 weeks.


Yeah but aren't they both suppose to be out like 6 weeks? So maybe putting the one they think is worse on there might not be a bad thing, after all it normally seems to take guys longer to come back than they first say as Packers doctors seem extra careful.

@Jeff_Legwold, it looks like WR Tavarres King is staying in Denver as his agent said yesterday. http://espn.go.com/blog/...ing-to-be-elevated

Yeah, if they are thinking 7 or 8 weeks they will probably use it, if its more like 5 or 6 probably not.

Well that sucks for King. Broncos really pulled the wool over his eyes just to keep him away from the Packers.

I guess that 3 week minimum rule only counts when you sign a player off another team's practice squad. Not your own.

I hope the Elways lose him now.

I don't much care for whom.

Yes, I know this is common practice in the NFL to have revolving doors for the last three or four of the 53.

But I still don't like it.

I wish the Packers could claim him on waivers... but unless they're willing to IR one of the injured guys or cut one of the guy the Packers recently added, then I don't think they would.

I thought TE Taylor would be IRed after hearing he had surgery but I think they would of IRed him and kept RB HIll on the 53 man roster if they didn't think Taylor was going to be back for this season.

Question is, would they cut Nixon, White, Stoneburner or Harper for King or not... I'm thinking not, but you never know.

Harper's the guy they got "instead" of King.

But maybe Ted was just juking these guys...
