Really liked this pick. A field stretcher with some actual size as opposed to Young, Williams, etc. Liked Wilson more, partly cause I went to Wazzu, but still a good pick I'd say.

That is probably more important than anything else at this point.

Only game I've seen of this guy was against Michigan in the Sugar Bowl 2 years ago. He looked solid, and I can't wait to see how he fits in.

I did prefer Swope because he has production. In terms of talent Fuller>Swope

But yes Swope would have been my choice based on my love for production

Sometimes I prefer production over talent

Swope has severe concussion issues, its why he fell as far as he did.

Reading the scouting report from bleacherreport, this guy sound like his only weakness is blocking and experience, and beyond that he'll be a very good deep threat. It's full of "outstanding" and "exceptional" and words like that in just about every category. Plus he's big and very fast. I'm convinced we got a major steal

I wouldn't let a site like bleacherreport sway your opinions on a prospect. They aren't ex-NFL scouts or players, they are just fans like us that are very misinformed like most fans.

That's just my two cents.

Yea just not a fan of raw players. This late doesn't bug me. #5 does

Majority of time ill always take production with film to back it up
