    Jacoby Ford ran track at Clemson, reaching All-American status in the 100 meters and national championship status in the 60 meters. In prep school he was timed under 4.2 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

    Despite his many accomplishments on the track, Ford will tell you that, first and foremost, he’s a football player. The dynamic receiver/returner/occasional passer took some time between workouts to discuss his skills, his family, and his hopes for a future in the NFL.

    Gotta like that interview. He might be a good option if McCluster is off the board.

    He's a better option than McCluster if McCluster is still on the board. If BB drafts that smurf my head will explode. How is a 170# frame going to hold up to the abuses of the nfl? I don't care how fast he is, size does matter to a point, and he has absolutely none of it. It isn't like he is Jones-Drew small, short with a solid core/legs. He is just all around small.

    And frail. Can't you just see a LB, CB, or Safety lining him up in their sights!

    Woolster - DeSean Jackson says HI and he'd like to remind you that one doesn't have to be 200 lbs to be successful.

    No. Size doesn't matter to a point..DeSean Jackson is 5'10 and 175 lbs. Eddie Royal is similarly built.. So is Percy Harvin. So is Wes Welker.

    Oh, and before you mention Welker's injury, remember that his was a non-contact injury caused by bad footing on the Houston field.

    So, please take your silly stereotype and get educated or something.. Sheesh.

    No. Because you can't hit what you can't touch..

    Also, please see my post regarding Jackson, Harvin, Royal, and Welker.

    I'm curious to see what this guy's going to run in the 40.

    MCCluster is going to be a good player. Good fit for the patriots as well. multi-dimensional player. Younger Faster version of Kevin Faulk

    Jackson is a WR, McCluster is more a RB. Percy Harvin and Wes Welker aren't built like him at all...not even close.

    McCluster is listed as 5'8" and 165 lbs...scary small. There are bigger (read more durable) prospects who are just as talented. DaBruinz says he won't get hit because he is so quick...ROFL!

    I dont think we could go wrong with Ford, Gilyard or Benn. All of these guys offer great value as second round draft picks. Not to mention they add in the return game as well. I would love to see one of these WR's back deep with Brandon Tate

    I went back and looked at the heights of these players, Ford is only 5'8. I just don't know if we need another WR under 6'0.

    I realize theres a good chance we take a receiver with one of the second round picks; I love Marcus Easley (UCONN) in the later(5th/6th round) rounds

    Really, who has McCluster's acceleration?

    That's right, no one else in the draft, he could be just fine as a slot receiver.
