Overview

Givens is an early entry junior out of Wake Forest, where he was a first-team All-ACC selection this past year. He has adequate size and is a blazing straight-line runner who looks similar to Philadelphia's Jeremy Maclin with his movements in-route. He relies heavily on his speed in everything he does. He's capable of taking a speed-out and cutting upfield to daylight. He is a polished player who could be selected late in the first round; he has all the traits of a productive NFL receiver and an immediate No. 2 option.

Analysis

Strengths
Givens is an elite deep-threat receiver who is fluid and quick off the ball. He can eat up a defensive back's cushion in a few steps to get them on their heels and then accelerate in a very controlled, explosive motion. He adjusts well to balls in front or behind him, and he can make all the necessary catches at full speed. Givens has obvious field awareness and routinely would get behind corners in Cover 2 before throttling down for a quick back-shoulder throw before a safety can get there. He can get jammed at the line on occasion but usually beats defenders with a jab step. He has excellent footwork at full speed to change directions or drag his feet along the sideline.

Has the well run dry at Colorado State or did Brisiel's departure sever ties?

With the extra 4th I wouldnt be surprised if we lock up the A&M kicker early to avoid someone stepping in and grabbbing him. If we did that and had a solid kicker signed for the next several years I would be fine with it.

I thought we would go BPA, then OL and WR, so we are on course so far. Today I see us taking OL, DEF (LB or DB), and a surprise (K or QB) in the fourth. Then go for another WR then OL or DL depth in 5th and 6th.

Default Re: Fourth Round...

Quote:
Positives: Good initial quickness; explosive, but doesn't generate much power... Great fundamentals and technique, plays with a good base and low center of gravity... Very good first read step in both the running game and passing game... Seems to have a good knowledge of protection schemes and can snap with the quarterback either under center or from the shotgun, has experience in a pro-style offense.

Negatives: Not an overly impressive player by any right, doesn't really stand out or do anything particularly well... Not as big as you would like him to be, shorter than ideal arms and small hands, doesn't have elite size or overall athleticism... Not an incredible run blocker by any stretch of the imagination.

Started 48 games at Center in the SEC. Plays with a nasty treak. He made the line calls and has a lot of experience. He's consistent and tough. Many expect he could start right away for many teams.

Maybe Brooks goes to RT and Jones goes to G (while we have Chris Myers, then Jones becomes our C).

He'll likely be depth behind Myers since Caldwell was the backup C and is slated to move to RG.
