This is purely for discussion. Does anyone think this senior football class has anyone who can make a team in the pros? Honestly, I think there are 3 or 4 who should get a shot in my opinion.
1. Carson Wiggs: he played up and down this year, but still kicked 76% (should be 80 if not for the Rice block), which is higher than I thought he kicked. We know he has the potential to kick the long one, which pro teams like, but they like accuracy more. He also showed off extreme versatility this year, doing really well on kickoffs and pooch punts. I think this kid more than deserves a shot on a pro team, if nothing more than his versatility than accuracy (again, I don't know what good accuracy is, maybe someone can tell me?)
2. Albert Evans: I think Albert had a pretty good season. 72 tackles, 2 interceptions, pretty good tackler. I don't expect him to get drafted, but I think he has a pretty good shot of being a UDFA somewhere.
3. Justin Siller: This guy can do it all. Good size, pretty good hands. Good speed, can run out of the wildcat. Only second year as a wide receiver. 50 catches for 474 yards this year in a running (or some would say poor passing) offense. Not great numbers, but do you think someone might pick him up in later rounds? I think he has the potential to be good on the next level.
4. Dennis Kelly: Guy has prototypical NFL tackle size; 6'7-6'8 308 pounds. Does anyone know really HOW he is rated in his draft profile? I know there was talk last year but did he do anything to improve/decrease his profile this year?
Did I leave anyone out? What do you guys think?
