    I'm so excited about this kid. His highlights are like a video game.

    No one saw this pick coming. Or going. If you blink you might miss him. He's that fast.

    This kid is so fast he can flick the switch & be under the covers & asleep in bed before the light goes out.

    Although I coached against both Rainey and Archer in high school, I was on the offensive side of the ball when we played Venice, so I honestly don't remember a whole lot about the latter (by the way, since he was also mentioned in this thread, we had Ace Sanders on our team...kind of cool). But because he's a local kid, I have followed Archer a little. There was even a huge Heisman campaign put together by Kent State for him.

    Those of you who are belly-aching over taking him in the 3rd round will likely be singing a different tune when he zips, zips, zips to the hizzy on a couple of those returns this year. His special teams contributions will make this pick a great value, in my opinion.



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    He has to get a 99 speed rating in this year's Madden game. Has to.

    I think its a solid pick but not what he brings as a RB because I don't necessarily see or want him taking carries away from Bell and Blount. I see him replacing our #1 WR as our PR. Brown returning punts is a big risk because of our WR depth.

    Archer will see playing time as a KR/PR, reverses, etc. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the Steelers drafted him to be a slot WR with the occasional trick play.

    Shawn you see the system and not just the pieces. Good post. I think if we can get a solid year out of the O-line we might have something special on offense.

    So far we got a 210 lb ILB, a lazy DE and a midget RB who could have been taken in the 7th and who will most likely be hurt all the time. Color me not confident.
