This isn't a post saying that we should draft him or some stupid post liek that it's just a little scouting report and since someone asked me to do a post on him. Info after the Jump...
Mardy Gilyard Cincinnati (WR)
Mardy Gilyard is a projected third rounder to many scouts, his best season came as a junior in which he caught 81 passes for 1,276 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also returned two kickoffs for touchdowns. My opinion is he is going to be a great pickup in the third or fourth round, some people are saying he is the best reciever in the class as he is indeed a great play maker. In the sugar bowl he was supposedly shut down only getting 7 receptions for 41 yards; longest being 12. I also noticed that even though he's not afraid to go down the middle he rarely had to do it, kind of worries me a little. What are people saying:
"This guy is hands down the best talent at WR in this draft class, but he'll get looked over because he lacks the size pro scout look for but i have two words for that, DESEAN JACKSON, he's a slightly slower but slightly thicker version of Jackson. A some GM is going to regret passing on him in the first round. He's no question a first round talent but like Jackson he'll slip to the second round. Top 10 talent!"
"Same size and ability as Chad Johnson, love his talent."
"teams will sleep on him
will be a steal for someone
one of my favorite players in college
i see some of the desean jackson comparisons but jacksons skinnier and a lil faster."
"Late second round pick. Reminds me a lot of Percy Harvin only taller with better hands. Needs to work on his routes but that should not be a problem when he starts working with NFL coaches. Speed is fantastic, he can make anyone miss in the open field. He is a sleeper because he was off the radar playing for Cincinatti. Could turn into a very solid number 2 receiver."
Here's some highlights:
