    WR James Hardy from IU declared for the draft

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft08/news/story?id=3182235

    I know alot of people around these boards (and others) have been hoping he would fall to the 2nd round. With his size (6'7) and athletic ability (former basketball player), he is an intriguing option to complement Ginn. However, I don't know if he will fall that far and if we can make a "luxury" pick like him.


    A little more info on him:

    Would be great to have a guy that big on Miami, almost an automatic touchdown throwing it up to him.

    That is big. I really hope the Dolphins draft a quality big WR this year. With Hardy's declaring, if we want to, we should have a good shot at the top 3 (Hardy, Bowman, Sweed) in the 2nd round. A big WR fills a rather sizable (no pun intended) hole on our offense. We need a guy who can make those high grabs over defenders. Gives a QB some leeway in his throws and puts pressure on defenders who normally would only be good against short speedy guys.

    Hyperbole aside, can you define exactly what that is and how he equates to having "it"?

    Has great size, leaping ability, good hands, and is quite prolific. I just wonder about his 40 time as it's around 4.6.

    Me too, and this prevents him from being CJ type. But love his size.

    the fact that CJ ran a 4.35 puts them on two different levels. The closest WR to CJ's athleticism is Adarius Bowman who was originally a member of the North Carolina basketball team before transfering to Oklahoma State

    Would be a fantastic pick at 32, but I'm still leaning towards going CB at that pick,

    Did any of you guys see him in the bowl game? He dropped at least 4 balls. May be he was having a bad game, but he wasn't that impressive.

    I like Bowman as well though I think Bowman's speed is a tad higher than 4.5. But that's deceptive as he has enough speed to go deep and use his size advantage. Provided he doesn't wow the scouts at Combine and Senior Bowl, he could be had with one of our 2nd rounders and we should take him. If Bowman doesn't become available then Hardy and Sweed are options.
