7. Demps, we've already got him on the team his name is Trindon Holiday, small really fast KR.
I really like 1,2,3, and 5 but think 4 is unrealistic and 6 and 7 have no shot of making the team. Overall not bad but I think we can do better.
Didn't you have Sylvester Williams-NT in a previous mock in the 3rd, that was a good find. I'd stick with him.
I think Jackson has the potential to be a top level CB. The thing that hurts him is that is is at a small school. I wouldn't be taking a flyer on a guy I believed to be a filler...I'd be taking a flyer on a guy that I believed could be a top level guy with enough work.
The athleticism and size is there and he'd easily compete with J.Jo and McCain as the fastest/most athletic CB on the roster.
And Demps is better than Holiday in the sense that he could actually take Derrick Wards spot as the 3rd RB.
Demps is waaaay more polished at a true position than Holiday is so it wouldn't feel like we were dediating a spot to just a return specialist but rather a guy that could also see some time in offensive sets.
Also, I get what you are saying about Wright, but I think that Lestar Jean can be the big body guy with good athleticism and hands.
What we don't have is a guy opposite Andre as talented as Wright. A guy that can work inside and outside...We don't have that smaller type burner receiver...And Wright actually has a lot of talent to go along with his attributes.
