Two Little Debbies and a cup of coffee
Just so you guys know, Stedman Bailey is a beast and will be a great NFL WR. I watch almost every WVU game. And dont get the idea Im some WVU homer and thats the reason I think he will be good in the league.... Im not. TBH, I watch almost all of their games just to hate on them. So the fact that Im saying he will be good in the league suggests a lot.
This guy has real NFL skills. Every game I watch them he is running his routes real crisp and makes great catches especially around the sides and corners of the endzone. He has great body control and knows how to adjust to balls in the air and make his QB look good.
If you ask these clueless WVU fans around here they will tell you that Geno Smith and Tavon Austin are the best players on the team. Well, they put up the most numbers.....in college. Stedman Bailey is the best player they have and it will show in the league. These homers still think Pat White and Major Harris are great players while they hardly speak of Marc Bulger who might be the best QB they ever had(Oliver Luck, Jeff Hostettler).
Tavon Austin can play in the league I think. Im just not sure he has the NFL talent that Bailey has. A lot of people compare Austin to Percy Harvin. Could be a fair comparison. Austin is certainly capable of being a playmaker in the NFL. Im just not sold on his ability to run crisp routes. Dosent mean he cant be effective in the league though. The guy can certainly make people miss in the open field on any level and has tremendous speed. He dosent have the body control and hands of Bailey though.
Geno Smith wont play in the league. If you ask people around here, they think he is 1st round material.... While he is certainly better than Pat White, he does have some throwing ability, just not enough to be effective in the NFL. He could maybe be a mid to late round pick and possibly stick on the end of a roster. I just dont see him ever being a starter in the league. The guy has a ton of great weapons around him and an offense taylor made for anyone with a decent arm to put up huge numbers in a college game.
Id take Bailey in the 2nd round in a heartbeat. He's that good.
