    Actually I read somewhere that Ford posted a 4.126 40 yard dash… must not have been at the combine

    Good morning all.

    Looking back at last years draft, there really are only 5 WR’s names I know after this current season. The top 3 and then the 2 from the Steelers, this comes from watching the playoffs.
    The Rams who so desperately needed WR’s this year, drafted a kid by the name on Mardy Gilyard in the 4th round, ahead of Ford. He was to be a WR project and KR.

    Here’s his stats vs. Ford:

    Year Team G Rec Yds Y/G Avg Lng YAC 1stD TD KR Yds Avg Long TD
    2010 St. Louis 11 6 63 5.7 10.5 21 2.3 4 0 16 356 22.3 34 0

    Year Team G Rec Yds Y/G Avg Lng YAC 1stD TD KR Yds Avg Long TD
    2010 Oakland 16 25 470 29.4 18.8 52 5.2 19 2 53 1280 24.2 101 3

    Big miss by the Rams and great pick by Davis!

    I remember thinking at the time we drafted Ford that Al had finally gotten out of the room they’d had him locked in.

    Jacoby Ford draft preview

    Strengths

    Ford is a premier track athlete with excellent timed top-end speed. Exhibited great foot quickness as a returner and running reverses in college. Flashes the ability to adjust to off target throws and bail out his quarterback. Was a very productive player whose team always tried to get him involved early and often.

    Don’t know who wrote this but they were bang on, especially here:

    “Flashes the ability to adjust to off target throws and bail out his quarterback.”

    As I said last week, Al Saunders was a longtime WR coach for Don Coryell, Marty and won a ring as WR coach for Vermeil’s Rams.

    Let him work with DHB, Murphy and Ford.

  • 1eyedpirate

    DHB is done aftr the 2011 season…… Doesn’t matter who coaches him, he will be behind schilens, murphy, ford, and even nick miller! Don’t letus pick up a vet at the WR position cuz then he might be out by training camp…. Really I hope he proves me wrong cuz he probably deserves to shine after all his hard work… I seriously doubt it though….
