    Dri Archer

    Very stoked by this pick.

    With the talent remaining, this was a great selection.

    Overall, its been a very good draft. But this pick made me very happy. Archer is special.

    This guy is very Sproles-like according to Kiper. Mayock compared him to Tavon Austin and the Steelers RB coach just said they hand timed him at a SUB 4.2!!!!!

    I personally think he'll contribute immediately as a kick returner. They haven't had a stud back there in a long time. Daniel Jeremiah (NFL Network,former scout) said Archer's kick return tape is "pure gold"

    Lightest skill positional player to play in league the past 15 years weighed 187 Lbs. This guy is damn near 20 Lbs lighter. And the reports I have seen have said Archer has a history of getting Injured from Hits from the defensive players in his OWN Small conference. What happens once in the NFL ?


    This is a GREAT pick for a team that is picking him in the 5th round or beyond....but in the 3rd round ?..when other WR's were there. When CB's like the Lindenwood kid Desir was there. And the McGill kid ?


    Yeah, he will be great if we can get him the ball in space. But given who our OC is...I'm not holding my breath.

    I think he was an All-American in 2012. Had some injuries this year though
