Rumors are swirling that he will run sub 4.4 , which may cause him to get into the 1st round permently.
If he runs a sub 4.4 I will be shocked, watching all the LSU games the last two + years, I dont see it. Maybe on a fast track, I dont think he has the explosion to do it, although I would bet his second 20 is faster than his first.
If I am wrong (not the first time), and he does run a sub 4.4 forty, than you are probably right about him going in the first round.
Randle played in a poor passing system with nothing special at QB. The Combine should be his time to shine if he is capable. Until we see him work out at the Combine, he is at best a round 2 guy. If he can dominate at the combine, he'll move up especially if he has elite speed.
Mayock on the top WRs in the draft: Four wide receivers should be drafted in the 1st round: Blackmon, Kendall Wright, Michael Floyd, Rueben Randle, but not Alshon Jeffery or Mohamed Sanu.
Z-Report Says: Not really a surprise on this front. As I said in my mock draft, teams view Rueben Randle as a potential #1 WR and love his size/speed. While he wasn‘«÷t as productive as the other potential first rounders, teams realize he had QB issues at LSU he had to deal with as well as an extremely conservative attack compared to the other three wide receivers.
Physically, he's all there, but I hate the way he catches the football. Way too many body catches IMO. He has the ability to make the easy catches look easy and the harder catches look hard. It sort of mitigates the advantage he has in terms of length. It's going to take a lot of work from a professional receivers coach to fix that, but if it's fixed watch out.
This. He's just peaking right now in hype. He's not a first rounder, I don't think.
I think the general lack of excitement towards Randle is due to the fact (as I see it) that his athleticism is really underrated for whatever reason. Maybe I'm wrong but I expect a strong combine showing. He can create and make guys miss with the ball in his hands far better than a guy like Floyd.
Post combine where do you expect him to be ranked as a WR?
