    Of course that's just my opinion, but we will see how he does in the NFL.
    Williamson from S.Carolina and Williams from S.Cal were taken ahead, but my money is on the former OU WR as the best player coming out in this years college draft at his position. I still think he would have been a terrific #2 receiver to compliment our top guy, AJ. I dunno....could be Cass really liked him to, but he just felt the team had a higher need and that's why he took TJ.

    "Rated among the Ravens' top 10 prospects, Clayton fell to the bottom third
    of the first round because he lacked ideal size (5 feet 10). Still, he holds nearly every school receiving record at the University of Oklahoma, from career receptions (221) to yards (3,241) to touchdowns (31).
    He brings quickness, speed and burst to our receiving corps," Newsome said. "That's an ingredient that we really don't have."

    That was a great pick by Baltimore. Can't believe the Jags picked Matt Jones ahead of him. I'm sure the Ravens are glad they did though. :)

    not a huge matt jones fan and don' think he should have been a first rounder, but i will say that if he does pan out he can pay bigger dividends than clayton could. the way the game is now played a te can be the most dominant receiver in an offense. the jags also drafted a wr last year in williams.

    I agree, Clayton is the most NFL ready WR from this draft class. He is alot like Last Years Clayton.
