In case you missed it. Ramses Barden is just awesome. He is big and physical and caught all but 1 pass from the jugs machine. Then ended with a one handed catch like it was nothing and then dunked it over the goal post. The more I see of him the more I think we need him with our 2a pick.

Hakeem Nicks missed 3 from the jugs machine.

I saw Barden....damn he looks good. I also like Joaquin Iglesias, and Hakeem Nicks, but Barden has that nice size. :)

Didn't it look like he was just playing around and still caught almost everything. It is effortless to him.

Jordan Norwood of Penn State has great hands.....didn't drop a single pass out of the Juggs machine.

I could see Pennington lobbing it to him and he would kill the smaller d-backs.

That was unbelievable. He looked like it was a waste of his time. Just no effort whatsoever,

That I would love to see. We haven't had a receiver with that kind of physical talent in a long time.

As a Penn State student, I've seen Jordan Norwood develop over his collegiate career. Although he is small, he catches everything that comes his way and knows how to use and position his body to make great catches. He can very well be a good slot receiver in the NFL.

Yeah, Norwood had unbelievable hands but I'm not sure about his speed or quickness. Matter of fact none of the receivers impressed me with their speed/quickness. Barden looks like he lumbers down the field at marginal speed.

After two of the best tall college receivers with questionable speed/quickness flopping the last couple years I wouldn't get too hyped up over Barden. I'm referring to USC Jarrett and Williams who played against and excelled against top collegiate competition but hasn't done squat in the NFL.

When it comes to the NFL its about route running, toughness, hands, smarts, quickness, and speed, then size. You've got to be able to seperate from these tougher, quicker, and faster defensive backs in the NFL.

If I'm the Dolphins I wouldn't look at any wide receiver who runs above a 4.5 40!!!!
