Around the NFL
Posted Feb. 26 at 05:52 AM
Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is one of the country's better-connected NFL writers, so it's useful to check in on his work this time of year, when it's tough to find good NFL news. His latest column talks about potential draft picks for the Packers, but it ends up providing loads of information on a wealth of likely first- and second-round prospects.
McGinn's column can be read at this link. Among the tidbits:
- Alabama RB Trent Richardson, who backed up Mark Ingram when he won the Heisman, drew notice even back then, with one scout saying Ingram wasn't even the best player in his own backfield. "Ingram is a nice player, but Richardson is big-time."
- Conflicting opinions on QB Robert Griffin III, with one scout saying "he's phenomenal" and another flatly stating "he cannot play quarterback...not as good a thrower as Michael Vick."
- Of Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon, a scout tells McGinn, "he does not have the physical ability, size or strength that Dez Bryant has."
Other reports on the draft's perceived top wideouts, including Kendall Wright and Michael Floyd, are also included. A worthwhile read for those looking for some opinions on the draft's top prospects.
