    Could this be one of our targeted receivers in the draft?

    Courtney Gardner. He's a JUCO kid that was supposed to go to Oklahoma, but because of his grades, etc. those plans fell through and he's now entering the NFL draft.

    Kid is 6'3" and 215 and is rumored to run the 40 in 4.38. May be worth a late round flyer...

    Check out his video below (not the greatest quality) Especially check out the play that starts at the 1:06 mark. That looks VERY similar to Cordarrelle Patterson, but with a 4th-7th round price tag.

    You have to remember that he is going against NAIA or Div.II talent playing at Sierra College. I do not think it was the best decision to return to Sierra and then decide to go to the draft. IF he was recruited by OU, then he has the talent to play in the Big12. I would have wanted to see him go up against a legitimate DB before I drafted him in the 4th. I might take a flyer on him in the 7th but that is about it.

    I can't put a ton of stock in the video just because of the quality of competition. That was one of the most heinous tackling displays I have seen in a long time. However, his size/speed combo alone is worth taking a late round flier on, imo. When you're a team so desperately in need of playmakers, you look for them wherever you can. Considering how often players picked in later rounds don't even make a roster, I see very little reason to not take a chance on someone like this.

    Don't know but those kids were falling down all over the place, two players fall down before the ball even gets to the receiver? That was like watching high schoolers...and bad ones at that. St. Thomas Aquinas could beat the teams this guy was facing.
