    What's your thoughts on Ty Montgomery? I like his talent, but haven't seen enough of the wide receivers to say where he ranks. Looks like a #1 pick to me with the added versatility of returning kicks. As much as I think Miami's receivers are overall a strength, I still think the team could use some more talent there especially someone a little bigger who can dominate in the redzone.

    DeVante Parker injured his foot in practice last night (Friday) and will get a second opinion from Dr. Bob Anderson in Charlotte. He's worked on the feet of Derek Jeter, Cam Newton, and Julio Jones among others. His aunt posted on Facebook today that it's just a sprain and not a break. It could be that he's just wanting to make sure the doctors up here haven't misdiagnosed the injury. Foot injuries can derail a career so if that is why he's visiting the specialist then that's a smart call. No word yet on how many, if any, games he'll miss.

    He tweeted this yesterday:

    Insert pithy saying here.

    Kevin White. Mountaineers. He's good. Real good. Great pro prospect at the WR position.

    Sooners better be careful when they go into Morgantown Saturday.

    Yeah I watched him after that Alabama game, which I'm positive is when he caught your eye as well. I was surprised.

    Clint Trickett might make a decent backup quarterback at the next level, sort of a career clipboard holder. Big arm, smart.

    He was beating up on a coverted WR that has no business starting at CB for Alabama, but he's a big physical receiver that's extremely explosive and dynamic RAC skills. He caught my eye last year because he was always the one making plays for West Virginia. His consistency in the way he takes over games is getting better and better every week. He looks like a top 100 player to me.

    Trickett has certainly improved. The concern with him is obvious though... he's still skinny. I can't knock him anymore for it though than kids like Halliday, Cato, or Keeton in this class. They're all built about the same in terms of lack of bulk. All have a certain degree of arm talent though. You'll stick 'em on the roster and develope them over a few years as hopefully capable backups at the next level.

    Kevin White is drawing some Larry Fitzgerald comparisons. Time to dig into his film.

    He's a beast ain't no question about it. He's lit up Alabama, Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas, and Maryland for 41 receptions, 658 yards, and 4 TD's. He's averaging over 16 yards/catch in those 5 games. He's even better now than he was last year. In other words, he's still improving. Fantastic upside.

    Kevin White.......

    Going back to something Awsi said about guys usually can be expected to be what they are from the beginning of their college careers.

    White has made some big plays so far this season.

    Last season, I was at almost every home game. I recall going away thinking he was soft. I noticed quite a few occasions where it seemed like he wanted no part of contact. He fumbled a ball once where he had zero business fumbling. It was a play where he seemed timid to take a hit and it resulted in a fumble. He also had quite a few key drops I recall last season.

    He seems like a much better player so far this season, but I would be easy on the Fitzgerald comparisons at this point. If he continues to play the way he has so far this season, his draft stock will definitely rise to the 1st round. I would still be concerned about what I witnessed in that stadium last year though. I wish I could recall the game and pull up the play.

    Let me clear up my statement about White not wanting contact last year. Im not one of those guys that bashed Ginn for going to the ground or getting out of bounds. I always thought that was stupid. MOST WRs do that, and for good reason. Once they get the 1st down, there is no reason for them to take vicious hits for 1 or 2 yards. All they do is risk a fumble and/or injury. If they need to fight for yardage because they are close to the sticks, then by all means. But, what I was talking about with White was it seemed like he had a complete lack of interest in blocking or making tough catches when contact was inevitable. That fumble just struck me the wrong way. If you get a chance to see the play, the fumble happened because he was too busy trying to brace himself in a defensive manner as opposed to dishing out the punishment. When youre the big physical WR, that is not good. He just seemed like he was not physical.

    Trickett is a tough little son of a gun, but I think he could still qualify to play midget league football. He weighs about 150lbs. He makes Pat White look like Cam Wake.

    Potential 1st Round? I see you have him behind Devante Parker, and Rashad Greene. And this thread was made in March. Would you move him up past them now?
