    Re: Mark Mayok's postional rakings update

    Randle's 6'4" so he's got the size that I'd like and was the top high school WR prospect in his class. I think that going to LSU might have been a setback for him, as they were mostly a ball control offense. His 59 yard TD catch was the longest play from scrimmage for them all year long in 2011. He doesn't have a big breakout kind of game where he just dominated a defense, his best game in his career being against Arkansas with 9 catches for 134 yards. Just 5 career 100 yard games.

    Personally, I think he could have been better in a more wide open offense, but never the less, he still ranked 3rd in the SEC with almost 70 yards/game in 2011.

    I'd be happy to grab him at 2.1 or maybe a late 1st round pick if WR's fly off the shelves.
    I believe!

    Thanks for the info man. Think he would have done better then Jeffery if he was in his position. They are both the same height and build from the pictures ive looked at. No doubt being at LSU was a setback. If he does great at combine i wouldnt mind taking him in the 2nd if we dont grab Blackmon. Im still mixed on my wr's after Blackmon.

    Re: Mark Mayok's postional rakings update

    No problem, my friend. One other thing I noticed by watching his high school(junior year, I think) highlights is that he does have a good amount of shimmy to him, or at least against high schoolers. He looked to be able to stutter step or juke enough to either get away from a defender or get an angle where he could break the tackle and go past him. He had good breakaway/deep speed as well, but again, against high schoolers.

    He was able to break long plays on punt returns, deep routes(flys, posts), and bubble screens. Also saw him able to settle down in the hole in a zone. The competition was light, but he was able to it all and certainly has good instincts.

    My own board at this point is probably:
    Blackmon
    Floyd
    Randle
    Jeffery
    Wright

    I'd have Wright higher but I want a taller receiver who can dominate outside. Wright could be able to, a la Steve Smith, but I'd much rather have a Megatron(Randle?) or a Lloyd(Blackmon) than a Smith.
    I believe!

    Sounds like a good prospect to me. Ill have to look up some LSU highlights of him and see more.

    I agree with the Wright part. Now if we already had a Randle type i could see us taking Wright cause thatd cause some nice mix ups. I really think a tandem of Lloyd and Blackman would be great. We have the slot down if people stay healthy. Just need to find a tall receiver who can stay healthy and a speedster(Rainey type) and we're set.

    I think my wr board right now is:
    Blackmon
    Floyd
    Wright
    Jeffery
    Sanu

    But thats just right this moment, im sure itll shift around a bunch over the next few weeks.

    Cant wait for the combine.
