  • If you ignore off the field issues for a second, I think he is the best WR of this class. After reading recent articles on him, I am completely sold on him and want our hawks to draft him. He's got the potential to be true #1 WR in this league. Hopefully, he does not end up being drafted by any other NFCW team.

    Not to be a stick in the eye, but is your assessment of him as the "best WR of this class" based on something other than reading articles about him? This time of year the media is saturated with the 'next great thing' kind of pieces on prospects.

    Have you seen him play?

    Yes. I have watched his tape. I believe that he would have been the first WR off the board if he never had any off the field issues and never left Tennessee.

    Thanks... I know a lot of people have been high on his talent, for sure. He has good size.

    What are his off-field issues?

  • He failed three drug tests and got kicked off the Tennessee program. He transferred to Tenn Tech and played there for a year before entering the NFL draft. His style of play is a lot similar to Dez Bryant's game in my opinion. Dez is a headcase but he is slowly becoming one of the best WRs in the league. Very dominant n physical.

    I haven't watched any tape (YouTube vids:grin:) on Rogers, but if he's anything like Dez, I'd love to have him. He could be one of the best, if not the best, WR in the game if he got his head on straight.

  • It's too bad about the drug problems and character stuff. Rogers can move after the catch. Stories like Titus Young being fresh in GMs memory won't help players like Robert Woods and Da'Rick Rogers.

  • is it just me, or is that Calabro doing the play-by-play on the first vid?

    Rogers shows versatility which I feel none of the hawks receivers have. We have players who can make the YAC or the spectacular 20 yd+ play, not both though. None have shown consistent play making ability, Tate's the closest to showing that. Rogers is someone to watch for

  • I've hung out with this guy quite a few times.
    Dudes dumb as a rock.
    But i dont think Patterson would of looked half as good as he did this season if Rogers had been on the team.
    Justin Hunter is a really good WR, but Rogers out-shined him
    When Patterson played with Hunter, he just looked my dynamic didnt really look much better then him like Rogers did.
    Short point, i'd be good with this..i still think i'd rather have Patterson if they were going to go with a WR in the first round, trade up somehow.

  • i mean dumb as in....the stuff he does while having a free ride through school and a NFL future and he says " MAN I DONT GIVE A F**K IM GOOD ENOUGH NO MATTER WHAT I DO THEY GONNA WANT ME"
    he said that to us in the food court of the mall, pretty much yelled it for all the people around to hear.
    hope getting kicked of the team helped him get over that.

  • Re:Shady... I don't know if I can agree with you. Hunter was always option A when both were on the field. His stock was hurt based off the knee injury, but he will now be too years removed this Sept. Also, people keep talking about the drug issue with Rogers. The attitude/bigger than the team mentality is my real concern. The other players were not too upset when he got the boot that's never a good sign.

    There is no character stuff with Woods, so I'd like to know why Kip mentioned Robert as well. Robert is by all accounts a great kid.

    I remember Woods saying a few questionable things following the bowl game that made me hope the Hawks stayed clear of him. I don't recall exactly, but it was diva type stuff

    He was quoted out of context by Pedro Moura. His response:

    Robert Woods ‏@HeismanWoods

    @pedromoura and I said I was grateful for everything this coaches did for me...so don't make it it seem like I'm firing at the coaches

    41m Robert Woods Robert Woods ‏@HeismanWoods

    @PedroMoura you know that's not how I said it...but way to phrase me to look like a -hole

    That would be an absolute shame imo.

    I thought that Rogers looked absolutely lost in the position drills yesterday.

    His abysmal performance made me wonder how he was even invited to the Combine.

    If he turns out to be successful in the NFL, I will be floored.

  • With the name Da'Rick, I will assume he has no father, never had one and it's probably the main reason he has off the field issues. PASS.

  • Over at the Seahawk Draft blog I asked Rob Stanton about Da'rick Rogers in the comment section of one of his articles. I am not as high on him as some, but I asked Rob if he thought the guy would grade out as a good value round 2 pick. Rob was not a fan. I can't remember exactly what he said, but he felt that 2nd round might be a little high and with the character concerns he could see him falling to the later rounds very easily. Kind of deflating, as I thought the guy has the potential to be something special. I would still love to see him in a Seahawk uniform next year though!
