    Earl Bennet, or Manningham.

      if you have 6 minutes to spare, watch this freaking video. Earl Bennett is the Marvin Harrison of the college game. He is from Birmingham, AL and played against some ridiculous competition in HS. He was recruited by ND as a DB, LOL go figure. He was only a three star on Rivals. Guy just runs ridiculous routes and finds a way to get the first or keep his feet in bounds for the TD. Jerry Rice and Marvin Harrison are the only things that come to mind when you watch the kid play. He returns punts too and in our season opener vs Richmond he had three returns for a plus 20 average and a 34 yard long. He is so money going across the middle it's ridiculous, something I know Shanahan makes sure his receivers are capable of doing. I really can't say enough good things about Earl Bennett. I know he'll be a first round pick and would be completely fine with him leaving after this season to pursue a career in the NFL, he deserves it. However, I think he'll stick around and learn from Cutler and show everyone what he can really do. This year's draft will be STOCKED with receivers and although Earl certainly compares favorably to them all, he and Nickson (one of the nation's most dangerous dual threat QBs) would take on their senior years and lead Vandy to a second straight bowl game... that would only help his stock. I wish I knew how to post a link in a formal format but since I don't I'll just copy and paste it

      Notice that the first three teams shown in the video are freaking Michigan, Alabama, and Arkansas. He breaks lots of tackles and is usually not taken down by one man, something that is an underrated trait in football players. It takes nearly 8 Duke players to take him down around the 4 minute mark

      Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

        DeSean Jackson.

        It's a no brainer if you ask me.


        • #5
          yeah DeSean is a FREAK

          He played at Poly in Long Beach and compares favorably to Reggie Bush with his speed and elusiveness. If you want Jackson you want to go 3-13 the year before you draft him. World class speed man but not the best hands you'll ever find. Not having a great year so far. He reminds me A LOT OF Ted Ginn and he hasn't made his presence felt just yet in Miami. I'd rather take a guy who has had two 75 catch seasons in the SEC to start his career (only person ever to do so) and has played with a first round QB in college. Two years ago, the Pac 10 wasn't as good as it is today. Cutler wouldn't have been a first rounder without Earl. Earl allowed Cutler to show what he could do when given the right guys around him.

          Jackson was the #18 overall prospect by Rivals, that made him a five star recruit. He had offers from anyone he wanted one from. I think Jackson took his official visits to Oklahoma, LSU, USC, and Cal.... I think Earl took his to Kentucky, Notre Dame and Vandy. I'll take the guy that hasn't been handed everything and has worked really hard to get good, not that Jackson hasn't shown a good work ethic since I've been following him. The least complacent person ever = Earl Bennett

          Earl Bennett's stats (many of his best games have come vs SEC teams)
          2005: 79 receptions, 876 yards, 9 TD
          2006: 82 receptions, 1,146 yards 6 TD
          2007 (through 3 games): 28 receptions, 375 yards, 3 TD

          DeSean Jackson's career stats
          2005: 38 receptions, 601 yards, 7 TD
          2006: 59 receptions with 1,060 yards and 9 TD
          2007 (through 3 games): 14 receptions for 108 yards and 0 TD

          Jackson does pose a threat as a punt returner but Earl has gone up against some freaking awesome DBs that have been or will be high round picks. Guys like Laron Landry, Chris Houston, Leon Hall, Jonathan Hefney, Reggie Nelson, Ko Simpson, Simeon Castille, Jonathan Joseph, Tony Joiner, Greg Blue, Paul Oliver, and Jason Allen.

            I've seen a lot of Malcolm Kelly, Limas Sweed, and Adarius Bowman and I would be happy with any of them.


            • #7
              i want to say manningham but i think he is going to get dominated in the pros by big DBs, hes too thin and doesnt elude the big hit like a harrison or bruce does


              • #8
                DeSean Jackson.


                • #9
                  It'd depend on what you wanted to do, and it depends on for what team.

                  The Broncos?

                  It'd also depend where we selected him.

                  I really do like D.J. Hall, I think he'd be great here.


                  • #10
                    I would love DeSean Jackson in the slot. Just imagine his speed with Jay's arm.


                    • #11
                      Kelley or Iglasius

                      Both are studs with GREAT hands, and above average route running/speed.

                      But WR isn't exactly a bronco need, atm.

                        One that can replace D Hixon as a kick returner...although we may be better served drafting CU CB Terrance Wheatley for depth there and he can be a good punt returner as well.

                        As a receiver, I like Bennett or the Kentucky kid, Burton. Both look like good Pro prospects.


                        • #13
                          I've seen Sweed, Kelly, and Doucet a few times each and liked what I saw, especially from Kelly (who I think compares favorably to Detroit Lions WR Roy Williams). However, WR is not a 1st round need at all. It's painfully offense that our biggest needs lie on defense, specifcally DT and LB. We need a replacement for Sam Adams (Frank Okam would be fantastic), and Amon Gordon is awful. Hopefully, Marcus Thomas will be ready to replace him soon.

                              This is how one scout ranks 08's draft

                              He likes DeSean Jackson the best:

                              Frank Coyle of
                              Special to College Football

                              NFL Draft expert Frank Coyle of has ranked his top 100 prospects for the 2008 NFL Draft.

                              These rankings do not correspond to the order in which he projects these players to be selected in the draft. (* - denotes underclassman)

                              Athletic receiver has been the main weapon for Andre Woodson at Kentucky.
