reminds me a lot of brandon marshall play wise. wouldnt mind him at 25 or moving slightly up somehow from 44 to the mid 30s to get him.

Actually, if the targets at some other positions are gone, I wouldn't mind trading down to pick up Nicks.

Yeah, I've rated Nicks very highly. He's a natural plucker with good hands and concentration. He has very good playing speed despite whatever 40 time he may post. He is quite quick laterally, especially for his size, so separation should be good. He's big and physical. Is it just me, or does he seem bigger than 6'1 to anyone else? To be honest, talent-wise he reminds me a bit of T.O. in that he has it all.

He's not the fastest guy on the field, but he's faster than most and he really has everything you'd want from a receiver physically. He's not 6'6 like Ramses Barden or superfast like Tedd Ginn, but I will be surprised if he's not a pro bowl receiver who develops into an excellent threat. I suspect he'll go in the 1st round, and would be projected somewhere around our pick. If we were going for a receiver at 25--highly unlikely--I'd think he'd be our guy.

That said, I doubt he's there when we pick in the 2nd round, so I don't expect to see him as a Dolphin ... but he's an excellent prospect.

I felt the exact same about him and how he reminded me of TO but the only thing that doenst is the speed. I think besides the speed diff they are almost a clone of one another. hes a serious gamer and I'd love to have him.

I hope he's around when we pick.

man it takes at least two guys to tackle him

and that explosion he makes after he catches the ball is sick...

EXELLENT POST digital.

my thoughts exactly. i believe that tony sparano and
expecially our offensive staff would LOVE to have
nicks [or any other big time wr].

now, parcells has given sparano a big leash and SAYS he
is not making the final decisions on personel. so HOPEFULLY
if nicks is there, the finz will do the right thing and grab this
TALENT and get out of the cloud of dust mentality. but in
reality, nicks will be LONG GONE before we pic at #25 so
te dilema wont be happening.

You really think Nicks is going to be gone before 25?

I'd hope to trade down to the early second, get an extra pick, and take either Nicks or Britt.

Where Nicks goes will depend on his 40 time at the combine I think. If he posts in the mid 4.5s as expected, I think he will be there when we pick at 25 and will probably be there in the second round. If he can get in the mid 4.4s instead, he might be gone before we pick at 25.

I still think Maclin, Crabtree and Harvin all go before Nicks at this point. DHB might go before him as well. So, there would almost have to ba run on these guys for Nicks to not be there at 25.

I would like to have Nicks. But, I don't know if I would grab him at 25. We might get just as a productive player in Barden in the 3rd round.

Probably not, but he might not be available with our 2a, teams like ravens/colts/tenn/giants will be looking for a WR, and all of them are picking after us in the first round.

So if the FO really want Nicks, then they will have to take him in the frst round

Nicks is the ONLY receiver I have any interest in (in this draft). He reminds me (as others have said) of Michael Irvin.

IMO, he goes somewhere between our 1st and 2a.

Nah, I think Nicks goes before Harvin. I see Nicks becoming this year's Dwayne Bowe. After the Senior Bowl and Combines, Bowe shot up boards and went higher than anyone expected. I believe Bowe was top 15, if I'm not mistaken.

I see Nicks top 20 and expect Harvin to be the one to drop a little because of his lack of size.

Finally, if MIA had a first round WR in mind....it would be Anquan Boldin, not Harvin or Nicks...

Nicks isn't that much bigger than Harvin. He is only about 2 inches taller and 10 pounds heavier. And I will bet you right now that Harvin is stronger. He is also quicker even though he is more raw in route running. I see Harvin becoming a Steve Smith type of WR.

Harvin might actually run a sub 4.3 in the 40 while Nicks is projected to run in the mid 4.5s. Harvin is THE big play guy in this draft bar none. Maclin and Crabtree will go first. My guess is Harvin goes next.

But, I like Nicks, Harvin and DHB. I would take any of those guys. They are ALL playmakers. And we need one.

I like this guy...I've seen people comparing him to T.O. and Irvin, but he kind of reminds me of a combo of T.O. and Boldin. Scouts Inc. has he rated #26 overall. I think he will be available when we pick....I would love to have Boldin, but he will cost us 2 1st round picks...I'd like to see us use #25 on Nicks

Bowe was selected #23 and Nicks didnt have the Senior Bowl to boost him up the draft boards.

Hes going in the first, and i thought he was a first rounder when he declared. Depending on who is left i would be happy with him. My favorite thing about Nicks is his hands and how he catchs the ball with his hands. This was Hagans down fall. his hands were so terrible that he let the ball get to his body.....thats a no no

I think as we go along it becomes more and more obvious that this is a good WR draft. I mean I'm staring at a list of 10 guys and I'd be comfortable with taking 8 of them in the top two rounds.

Then you have guys even further down the list like Jarett Dillard, Mike Thomas, Austin Collie and Brooks Foster...and why wouldn't you take any of them? And you just know some guy like a Mike Wallace, Manny Johnson or Jordan Norwood will surprise everyone at the next level. Looking through the list, there's a lot of guys out there that are just really good at doing what you want receivers to do...catch the ball.

Well there are really several attractive things about Hakeem Nicks. He runs with great power, that should help him get off the jam at the NFL level. It also helps him gain yards after the catch, including especially into the end zone as he seems to display a little extra will to punch it in there. I don't have any measurements to back me up but he seems like he has great length in his arms, like a Chris Chambers, along with the big hands and catching ability. He looks the ball into his hands even when other people would body catch a ball. Back to the issue about avoiding the jam, he plays big but looks small coming off the line, gives the DB less of a target to jam IMO. This is as opposed to guys who are huge targets at like 6'4" or 6'5", those guys can often be jammed pretty easily as they are big targets and your best bet is to catch them before they start moving fast.

Also he's a team captain. He doesn't seem like he's into any party scenes. Hasn't been in trouble.

I would be very happy with him at #25 even though I generally am cautious about taking WRs in the first round. I think he fits Chad Pennington's style because Chad would get him the ball with good timing and placement, and then Nicks could make things happen after the catch as he's done so well.

I was impressed with the little competition...Lifelock Somethingoranother on ESPN over the weekend. Nicks looked extremely good.
