Good Read-Maybe we found another WR gem

Good Read-Maybe we found another WR gem 


We've always had great luck (skill) in locating great late round and undrafted FA's.  maybe Butler will fit that bill.

Brice Butler - Sixth round pick out of San Diego State put on a clinic for the defensive backs trying to cover him. He made several fantastic catches on the day. His first nice catch in team drills came on an underthrown ball which he caught off of a tip from the defender. He was Tyler Wilson's favorite target all day and there was no mystery as to why. He was routinely getting open and making catches when the ball was thrown his way.


Tyler Wilson - There is no question as to why he was considered by some to be one of the top quarterbacks in this draft. He threw tight spirals with great velocity and accuracy all day long. Granted, this is with no real rush in his face and therefore plenty of time to watch plays develop and go through reads, but that isn't what we're talking about here. We're talking about his first step and this first step was a big leap forward.

Throwback uniforms-make it happen, Long!

Hope he can stay healthier than the last SDSU WR we drafted.

We have a tendency to look very positively at the new players during this time. A lot of time, it is deserved, sometimes not. However, I have to admit that I'm so glad to here this stuff that I'm getting excited for the season to start. I think I'll call Jerry Jones to see if he wants to make a bet on the first preseason game.

I recall similar comments about Curry (7th rounder), about Streator / Criner last year, and that list is long. It does seem to focus on the WR group the most though Kelly was a late round pick was he not? Some of the OL prospects come from the late round of UDFA too.

Without a top tier QB this year we're looking at a 19 week pre season to 2014 anyway. Bring it - lets enjoy - and pray we get a few winners.

Actually, Butler was a 7th round pick. I remember I didn't like the pick. For one, because we just drafted 2 TE's and he reminds me of a TE, and second, the reason he transferred to San Diego State was because he wasn't getting playing time at USC.  I would have thought he would have gone undrafted. Also, he was putting on a clinic against the RAIDERS defensive backs. bored1

I hope he turns out to be great but I'm still wondering why we didn't see more of Criner in the regular season considering how great we heard he was in camp news.

Kelly was undrafted.
