Good vision or just luck and poor competition?

I don't think this guy is worth a pick as a receiver. However, if he turns out to be a good returner, it'll end up being a very good pick. If.

Figured about his background, just seems like a wasted pick trying to make roster or practice squad spot. Though Rogers might go UDFA anyway.

Reading the stuff Vinny posted (http://www.times-herald.com/sports/20130427-alan-bonner-on-a-mission-MOS), looks like the kids got a lot of heart. May be our DeSean Jackson.


“It feels like a dream about to come true,” Bonner said this week. “I wasn’t a highly recruited player out of high school. There was a lot of things I had to work on. I think with the season I had this year and being at those All-Star Games and being at the [NFL] Combine and Pro Days, I was able to get some exposure.”

The Cincinnati Bengals are among the teams keeping a watchful eye on Jacksonville State wide receiver Alan Bonner during today’s drills. Bonner has made a good impression during his team interviews. One scout described him as cool and unflappable in pressure situations with Percy Harvin-type ability. Bonner could boost his draft stock with a good time in the 40-yard dash.

This pick surely sounds like we drafted him because he was someones best friends son. Like Kubiak did when he drafted Casey Studdard, or the Colorado St. players.

My theory:

We watched Ryan Swope go off the board at overall pick 174 (Round 6), and while the Browns were picking at 175...we worked a trade and moved up and grabbed Quessenberry at pick 176.

That is, unless our move up to 176 was made way earlier than during the Browns' pick at 175 (I wasn't watching the draft at all, so I don't know how it went down).

I just find it curious that Swope goes off the board and we're suddenly drafting two spots later. As if we lost a guy we were targeting and decided we better get Quessenberry in case somebody grabbed him before we could. Wouldn't want to lose TWO guys you had targeted but who went earlier than you anticipated.

Maybe this Alan Bonner guy was our Plan B for not getting Swope. I think Swope is a Wes Welker type of guy, even though there's some concussion concerns there. Compared to Swope, I think Bonner is a JAG, IMO. Everyone has something nice to say about everyone...so this whole "he's unflappable" stuff? Meh. Hope he does well, blah blah blah, but I don't think he'll be a superstar. Hope I'm wrong, though. ;)

If we really wanted Swope we would've drafted him in the 5th. People need to get off of that. Ithink its foolish to even make that assumption.

Does this pick remind anyone of David Anderson? Boy he sure does to me. Even the measurables (IIRC) are similar.

And I think that's probably this kid's upside. Nothing special in any one area, but always in the right spots and makes a play here or there. Someone that can hang around a bit as the last WR spot guy, be a spot duty returner, do everything the coach asks of him and be teacher's pet. That's best case imho.

Worst case, he gets a drink of water in camp. Everyone realizes he is in over his head, and the guy is working at State Farm selling you auto insurance by September.

Give the guy a chance. Texans obviously saw enough to risk a pick.

If it doesn't work out, there's 31 UDFAs there to take his place.

Not at all. Anderson was a squatty KDub to me. High percentage of catching, but no possibility of YAC.

This guy looks like a weapon, you find ways to get the ball in his hands & let him do what he do....

Having said all that, I don't think he'll be more than a 5/6th WR & kick off/punt return specialist. I think Kubiak is trying to make nice with Coach Joe.

This is where I am. They gave Holliday three seasons and he never developed into anywhere near a passable WR. This guy is a good KR and has demonstrated pretty good hands already.

And as for picking Da'Rick instead, there most be something up with him for the WHOLE LEAGUE to pass on him for all seven rounds.

Just a little info...I was listening to the radio and they played a snippet from Kubiak I hadn't heard where he was talking about this kid.

Basically this was a Kubiak pick.

Sounds like they weren't even really scouting him...But Kubiak was at the combine and he saw him in recieving drills and he said he caught his eye...Asked someone he was with who the kid was..

Said he likes how fluid he is catching the ball...And he likes that he has great YAC...He said that the kid always seems to have a plan on what he's going to do once he catches the ball.

For what it's worth.

Yeah, I guess a lot of us (myself included) can get excited about a low round pick or an UDFA for one reason or another. Foster was a good reason why; Grimes was another, to a certain extent.
Or like Jean, we want to see if he pans out as a diamond in the rough or simply a serviceable player from unknown quantity.
And obviously, I like to see Keenum to at least force Kubiak to carry 3 QBs in 2013.

Has anyone seen him play?

Sure seems like a lot of negativity for a guy that doesn't even have much film out there...

So I finally get to watch a couple of his games.
Against the Arkansas Razorbacks, he caught 8 passes for 107 yards and a TD.
The QB only attempted a total of 28 passes, including throw-aways due to pressure.
He also ran a couple of reverses for 13 yards with a TD.
Not a bad day for a FCS guy against a big program from the SEC.

Against Florida, he had 3 catches for 23 yards.
There was a total of 25 pass attempts.
He gained one yard on a reverse when the Gators plugged up the back side nicely.
He also completed a pass for 20 yards off a faked reverse on a nice tight-spiral thrown ball.

Nothing exceptional as far as athleticism, but he looked fluid in his movement.
More often than not, he understands how to run his route to maximize the field area for his QB.

On the TD catch, he adjusted his route as the QB had to scramble from pressure.
He found a good spot in front of the defender in the end zone, backing the CB some to give himself room to catch the ball in front of him on a leaping catch (using his body to shield the defender away from the ball).

A side line catch on the left side of the offense was made possible due to his route running; he worked to get the CB to open his hips to the wrong side to get seperation on the 9 route.
A corner post route on the opposite side was made possible due to the same reason.
Another nice route was on a quick slant, where he pressed forward for exactly 5 yards and made a tight inside turn (as close to 90 degree as you can get) to get quick seperation.

The camera angle wasn't optimum to see how he ran other routes.

Rey also posted the vid of the game against Ole Miss in 2010, when he caught 3 balls for 56 yards and 2 TDs.

This team didn't pass too much, averaging just 27.5 attempts in 2012 and a mere 21.5 in 2011

Overall, he looks like a possession-type receiver, most likely an upgrade from David Anderson.
Will he make the team? Most probably.
Will he see the field on offense? I don't know.
It will depend on how the coaches want to use the players.
They might let him handle both return duties; they might let him return punts with KMart as the secondary man who also returns kick-offs.
Or maybe he won't see any offensive snap until late in the season.

Projection: zero to 100 offensive snaps; zero to 10 catches.
Likely to be the primary punt returner so that KMart can concentrate more on offense (besides kick-off return.)
There's also the possibility that they put him on the PS if they sign a FA vet.

Low expectation with some upside.

I watched some of his YouTube vids too. And I admit I'm not the draftnik some of you are. But to me, he looks like the kind of WR that, when it's 3 & 8, will have sense enough to run a 9-yd route and work to get open.

Preseason will tell. I think he'll at least be stashed on the practice squad and maybe be called up if K-Mart or Jean don't produce early on.

Make pre-snap read (i.e., does defense have 11 men on field? defensive formation, cover scheme, blitz pkg unimportant)

The more I watch of him (limited options available) the more I'm subdued and quietly start liking the pick. I especially like the way he reaches out for the ball and snags it. Not just waiting for it to arrive to him. He also has some nice agility, and I can totally see the potential to get open easily if the defender slacks at all guarding him.

Here is a rookie profile from Fantasyguru.
Full Name: Michael Alan Bonner
School: Jacksonville State | Ht: 5-10.5 | Wt: 193 | 40: 4.52 | Year: 4Sr

Bio: Two-year starter who registered 50 receptions/859 yards/8 TDs as a senior after 33/582/3 the prior season.

Positives: Well-rounded pass catcher with marginal physical skills for the next level. Solid route runner who quickly gets into breaks, and keeps the play in bounds running after the reception. Extends to make receptions away from his frame, looks the ball into his hands, and displays good hand/eye coordination. Solid downfield blocker who seals open the running lanes.

Negatives: Lacks playing balance and tends to do a lot of slipping or readjusting to get back to playing form. One-speed receiver who lacks a burst.

Final Analysis: Bonner was a solid college receiver who was also used a return specialist. He's more of a practice-squad player and a prospect who must earn his wage on special teams.

Basically what's been said already on this board

Nothing wrong with that.

After one season on the practice squad (http://www.denverbroncos.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Rod-Smith-Undrafted-Unmatched/e95b5a68-139d-433a-a42d-17f4def4e663), Smith appeared in all 16 games the following year, contributing primarily on special teams.
It was Smith’s eagerness to contribute in any way possible that raised the attention of the team’s coaching staff at the time and led to opportunities to increase his playing time.
“You have no choice,” he said about playing on special teams. “There are only 11 spots on offense and defense. Special teams is where they decide whether they’re going to keep some guys or not. A lot of guys think, ‘Well, I play receiver or I play linebacker.’ No, you play football. That means you play whatever they need you to play to give yourself a chance to make the football team. For me, returning punts, covering kicks – whatever it was, I just wanted to have a chance to be on that football team and that was a spot. You just want to get one of the spots. There are only 53 of them, you need to get one of them. The more you can do, the better your chances.”

I'm afraid the third down procedure is a tad more complicated than that; to wit....

Step 1.
Make pre-snap read (i.e., does defense have 11 men on field? defensive formation, cover scheme, blitz pkg unimportant)
If Yes: Call play. Go to step 2 to decide which play
If No: Wait until they do (call timeout as required)

Step 2.
Check distance to 1st down (known as "X").
If X>0 but <2 call run (preferably to Foster)
If X>2 but <8 call pass (preferably to A.J.)
If X>8 Run draw play

:D

Heh, just saw this. Good stuff! +Rep

Here he us making a couple td passes in their upset of ole miss.

Can't tell much from those clips, but he seems to have good acceleration.I like the way he snatched the ball out of the air there on the first TD.

Before those two catches, he had a nice one for 30 yd from the slot.
He put on a double move that left the nickel in the dirt then went up to high-point the ball and pulled it in nicely.

After rookies mini camp:

The quickness he possesses in and out of cuts was evident, and he has more size than 5'10" and 193 pounds would indicate. He has more of a Percy Harvin-type build—thick and compact with broad shoulders.

Bonner appears to be a much more skilled receiver than Anderson and will compete with Martin for slot snaps right away.

I don't know. If he's 190, he's not 5'10"

If he's 5'10" he's not 190.

Then again, I didn't think Posey was 6'1" 205lbs

He looks taller, slimmer.

Sure, that's believable. But, what kind of standup comic is Bonner? Let's not go crazy in comparing Bonner to former Texan legends like David Anderson.

I bet he can't do the Conan either.
