Default Re: 2015 - Preston Williams

Preston Williams would be a great get for USC and getting him here for junior day could open his eyes to the need for his size and speed based on the depth chart. I expect Spurrier Jr. could offer valuable information in regards to our needs and Preston could see the facilities and coaches. Look forward to seeing what he says after Jr. day visit.

I think one of the things working against us with 2015 WR is that Dylan is one and done....and nobody knows who the QB will be in 2015, but whoever it is will be new with little experience and that may scare off WR......it's also a year where we lose 3 starters on the OL.....neither of these makes us an upper tier destination spot for top 2015 WR.

But you have to remember by the time he is ready to audition for the NFL in his junior season he should have an experience QB which is when he really needs it. If we were talking about a JUCO WR it would be a big negative but for a kid with 5 to play 4 it is a big non factor.

We'll just have to wait and see how much action some of the other guys get. Also our coaches will sell our QBs.

People keep saying things like this, but I really don't think that's much of a factor. These guys commit to universities and coaching staffs, not the teams players. We can introduce him to Conner Mitch and Noso, if he has any concerns.

WR's want to catch passes.....if you can't demonstrate that you have a quality QB, you're fighting an uphill battle. By the way, I'm not saying either Dylan or his replacement won't be good.....I'm just saying, there is doubt and you better believe all the other SEC schools won't tell him all about that.

But making it to the NFL isn't just about one year, it's about building a resume with these top WR. I think we will always be able to get fairly good WR, but getting elite WR like Preston Williams is something else.

If in his junior season he goes for 1200 yards and 10 TDs after 2 quiet years and then puts up at least a solid combine he goes no later than the 2nd round. The NFL likes to see an a great resume from freshmen through junior/senior year but it is definitely not a prerequisite for a high draft pick. You're making it a much bigger deal than it is because most schools don't have security at QB 3-5 years out so at some point in almost every WRs career they will be working with an inexperienced QB.

Ok smartass. All I'm saying is wherever he goes there's gonna be a change at qb while he's there. And we can show him we have quality back ups. But you're right, we prob won't sign a wr this year because Dylan is leaving after the 2014 season

Brandon Shell is a rising RS JR. Unless he declares early (bad idea) we will only lose 2 OL.

I shouldn't have said that....it was too easy though....sorry. Every situation is different. Looking at Jalen Christian's thread, it doesn't look like it's bothering him.

OLine losses and QB uncertainty sure didn't seem to bother all the WRs Tennessee just landed.

Just let our coaches tell him how highly sought after Connor Mitch was out of hs and watch Mitch toss the ball around a bit, I bet they'll feel pretty good about it

Might as well just be considered a TN lean at this point.

He cancelled his visit to TN this weekend because of a track meet tomorrow but drove over to Auburn for the day today.

He is either really enjoying the process or searching for any reason to go somewhere else other than TN.

If he's any kind of smart he'll move to LT after Robinson leaves and show the scouts something new, because they'll probably remember he plays RT because he couldn't cut it at LT his Freshman year.
