He's undersized and has a history of injury troubles. I think #17 is about right.
Take a closer look at the kids listed higher than Wheatley. Its a pretty impressive list of corners. 17th is not an insult to him.
So where does the 17th ish CB usually land in the draft?
5 ft. 9 inches. :sad1:
Exactly. At 17th, he will get drafted by someone. Hopefully the injury troubles are behind him and he can be a solid backup CB in the NFL.
Reggie Smith ahead of Talib? I don't think so.
Smith is more versatile than Talib. He can be a returner in addition to CB.
talib alsonwss dynamic. If I rember correctly he we extensively used in the offense.
Fumbler, at crucial times :smile2:
the only time this year.... consider yourself blessed...
I am more miffed about Jordan Dizon than T-Wheat. The report questions Dizon's size but there are players the same size listed higher than him that size is not even mentioned....
Dizon will be a huge asset to whichever team drafts him. Sometimes the pure numbers approach that happens this time of year is not good.
2. Ali Highsmith, 6-0, 225, LSU
Highsmith is a quick player who does well on the outside. He has the speed and playmaking ability to become an early starter.
10. Jordon Dizon, 6-0, 225, Colorado
Dizon is a mobile prospect who displays keen instincts and fine quickness to overcome marginal size.
Dont these two look like the same size to you? Why the f*ck is every one dissing Dizon about his size when the 2nd rated OLB is the exact same size? Highsmith is probably faster but Dizon is just a great football player!!!
Stupid.... Stupid. I dont like that list. I listen to ESPN radio every single day of my life. They go over the draft every single day of my life, Aqib Talib is the unanimous #1 corner taken, I have never heard anything different, or them either talk about any other corner... THis stupid thing has him 5
The combine and it's focus on marginally relevant things is hilarious. Like that douchebag McShay on ESPN having a ****ing orgasm last night because the OL from Michigan had an 11 inch fingerspan. Seriously?
I want a guy who has proven that he can make big plays against top talent. I think Dizon has conclusively proven that.
Ultimately both will be drafted and both will get a fair shot, the initial money might be a little less, but I don't think they realistically had a shot at a draft position with an obscene amount of money.
Actually they don't when I watch them on TV.. highsmith looked bigger on the field than Dizon.
Dizon will make a team. Probably a team like the Colts or Bucs who like small, quick LB's..
Not surprised by Wheatley.. I don't think he has closing speed to keep up with receivers.. I don't think he was good as Strickland was and he has had injury problems in the NFL and been on numerous teams.. Hope the best for him though..
I don't remember if Talib did any ST time - doesn't seem like he did last year. However, pure and simple, Talib is a better CB than Smith. As I recall, Smith spent his first year at FS, hence, he only has 2 years work at corner.
Smith has the athleticism to make it as a corner, but he'll need some time to hone his skills. Talib, on the other hand, can play corner now. That's why this list surprised me as much as it did.
