  1. So take this statement with a tiny grain of salt but there are plays he makes that remind me some of Tyreek Hill. I sincerely believe his off field troubles contributed heavily to his not being drafted. If his 40 time is to believed or even if you adhere to the +.05 method he ran a sub 4.4 at 210lbs. I understand the minimal camps hurt UDFA’s but I think there is an argument here. As previously stated there is a thin depth chart at WR beyond Parker, Gesicki and Williams (who is coming off a decent injury). There is also a thin depth chart at RB. Not saying a position switch is possible just that when you run thin like that it’s important to have some playmakers on the backend. He also has a history of returning kicks which could make his sticking to the roster easier if he proves to be a role player in that area. I’m hesitant to overhype any UDFA at this point in my FF journey but this is an arbitrage Henry Ruggs that is easy to snag cheap right now.
  2. Kirk Merritt 6’0 210lbs 2014 HS SPARQ Champ: 148.83 (Would be 2020 top WR SPARQ, many are estimated due to Covid) 100m: 10.69 Pro day verified by Senior Bowl Scout Josh Cox 40 Time: 4.33 SS: 4.05 Vert: 45.5 Broad: 11”3’ Bench: 23 Reps Background: Was kicked out of Texas A&M for indecent exposure after abruptly leaving Oregon. Had major offers everywhere coming into college. I’m guessing this was bad enough to lead to his UDFA status as well. Recruited as a RB. 2018 Highlights 2019 Highlights 40 yd dash Response to DK Metcalf’s Vert Jump today
  3. It’s very reasonable to question anyone’s toughness in regards to football. There are players who succeeded at a high level at lower levels who weren’t tough on an NFL level. Vernon Gholston had size, all world athleticism and statistical success at a high end D1 program. Lebron has weak flops in the NBA. Could mean nothing in comparison to willing Cleveland to winning a championship or it could mean he’s had enough after a few hits in the open field.
  4. Just QB’s flopping around out there: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MdHjpByquhY
  5. Further pointing out Graham and Gates makes it seem every burn out basketball player can do this and thus every NBA superstar can do this. Rico Gathers and Demetrius Harris prove otherwise.
  6. “Football was the fallback option for guys like Gates and Graham who couldn't hack it at the top level in hoops. Seeing what they did, it's reasonable to think some of the more gifted NBA bigs could easily make a similar transition.”
  7. Saying Jimmy Graham and AG washed out Of basketball and therefore most of any basketball players can transition to the NFL is a disservice to the NFL and the quality of those players in this sport. If that was true Rico Gathers would be demolishing the league right now and if it’s about athleticism Moeritz Boeringer would have adjusted right in.
  8. Bob Hayes and James Jett had success transitioning. Now those guys aren’t modern era but not completely out of the same suggestion criteria.
  9. Allen Iverson has Michael Vick like HS football tape.
  10. Hmm... agree to disagree on that one. Definitely not arguing against Lebron’a greatness as an athlete or basketball player. I just don’t think it’s anywhere near just an adjustment. While difficult to quantify I’d say his chances of success in the NFL would probably be sub 50% by a large margin. Would we be giving this leniency to Usain Bolt?
  11. Antonio Gates was listed as 6’4, 255 and obviously finished his career a shade under Jabba the Hut
  12. He is far from huge, especially talking about NFL TE. It’s one of, if not, the most brutal position on the field. His body composition is closest, as stated previously, to Mike Gesicki. Who people have explicitly called small for a TE and someone who does not play inline. What you are doing is the hall pass argument I’m talking about.
  13. I just think it’s ludicrous to give him a hall pass to NFL greatness. The list of players I mentioned earlier were some at the top of their sport in wrestling, sprinting and rugby. Just because they don’t get the press that the NBA does doesn’t subtract from their athletic legitimacy and dominance in their own respective sport. No way does anyone, including Lebron James, show up to an NFL team undersized and with limited experience and excel automatically. Especially the suggestion of HOF.
