Default Dri Archer

Would like to hear opinions on him. Tore it up in the 40 in the combine. Watched his highlight films and he can scoot. What round do you think he might go in, if, at all. Pretty good weapon if he can catch and hold on to the ball. One of my sleepers...

Default Re: Dri Archer

Caught my eye last year as a junior. Had an excellent year rushing, receiving, and returning. Very dynamic weapon. Unfortunately, he struggled with injuries this year so his numbers were way down.

I think he's in the 4th-5th round range although I wouldn't be shocked if someone went after him earlier.

I don't think he's a sleeper, anymore.

I think prior to that 40 time, he was looking at best at the 4th round and at worst, UDFA. Now, I'd be really surprised if he went UDFA and expect him to go 3-5.

I think Archer goes in the 4th round, right about where a lot of people thought De'Anthony Thomas would go. And Thomas goes 7th/UDFA, right about where most probably thought Archer would go before the combine.

No longer a sleeper. Being the fastest guy at the Combine will do that for you.

I like him. Poor man's Tavon Austin?

Default Re: Dri Archer

Dude put insane numbers in 2012, but battled injuries in 2013. Outside having him be a kick return, a team has to have a specific plan on getting the most out of him because he won't be a tradition RB nor WR.

Chip Kelly will never let that happen
