I can honestly say I don't know a damn thing about Archer, if I've ever seen him play, I don't know it. Honestly, while I follow college football he just isn't a guy I'm familiar with. From watching Rainey, he had speed and hype, not much else, his other skills were very limited, as was his ceiling. Based on what I've read and heard of Archer, he has a lot more to offer a team than Rainey did.

Rainey had track speed.

Not to say he wasnt fast on the field but it didnt translate well.

He also had very little wiggle, no vision to speak of and while he caught balls out of the backfield decently wasnt half the pass catcher Archer is.

I was actually higher on the Rainey pick though AT THE TIME, if only because we picked him later and didnt have quite as many needs. Archer IMO is the better player though, but a scat back in the 3rd with all of our needs was not a great pick. Hopefully Archer can do something to make me not care about that.

You worded it much better and much more accurately than I did 43M, I agree with your entire post.
