    A lot of time.........

    Before next draft and anything can happen, but I think CB and TE have to be near or on the top of the list.

    I wonder if we will be awarded any compensatory picks?

    I really like Trae Waynes, who was teammates with Darqueze Dennard at Mich St.

    Devin Funchess from Michigan will probably be the top TE. Huge receiving TE

    He's a WR in that he's playing wr this year. In the pros he will be as much as a wr as jimmy graham is a wr

    He came on the national radar last year when he moved to Split End... he's been there ever since... he's got the same physical measurements as Calvin Johnson (speed/size combo)... it will take awhile for the internet to catch on... but Funchess is a WR, will be drafted as a WR, and will play WR in the NFL.
    It's good to be back!

    I dont think hes got calvin johnson speed at all.

    He looks like a TE to me, its splitting hairs though. Hes playing WR now to either play WR or be a pass catching TE. I like him in the seams more than outside the numbers.

    he ran a hand timed 4.3 in spring work outs.
    He doesn't separate on the go routes... but he doesn't need to. He looks awesome on the outside, he's a WR.

    He'll play TE as much as Mike Evans will...

    Arguing for the sake of arguing? I believe teams are going to be split on where to play him. Hes probably not a 4.3 guy, but that doesnt really matter. He can struggle to separate against corners, he is a matchup problem for linebackers and safeties though.

    I think he will probably run a 4.5-4.6.....regardless of what mich writers say about spring workouts lol, but that is plenty fast for a guy like him

    I really like him, right now hes one of the top 10 prospects in next years draft regardless of where you play him. Hes going to line up everywhere regardless because hes such a talented pass catcher, he may only be called a WR/TE tweener because hes phyically played TE before but regardless its going to largely depend on where he goes that decides his position. Im glad he officially made the switch to WR last year though and they have committed to it, it will only make him more effective even if hes drafted as a TE
