He's almost the same size as Brian Blades (ok, officially about an inch and a half shorter, and 10 pounds-ish lighter, but he can carry another ten pounds without much issue) and that guy had a long and strong career and made many teams look like fools by his willingness to go across the middle and grab anything. If we are able to draft a Brian Blades with amazing speed, then I think you do it. He's your "gadget" guy, but I think he scares teams into having to soften up coverage on others. He was catching 10-12 balls a game for WV, and then they started using him as a RB just to get the ball in his hands more. I think he's elusive enough that he won't take the huge hits and should be ok.
I think with all of the underclassmen that declared that his stock has dropped some. I wouldn't mind at all if we dropped a first or second on him. Seriously. Get the players who will make your team better, and get them wherever you can. Hester is a guy that most definitely made the Bears a better team, and he didn't even play a position. Sometimes you just have to roll the dice and snag a guy like this and know that he's going to scare other teams and make them look like fools often enough that it's worth it.
R.I.P. Dad. I miss you. You will never be forgotten
