    He's pretty good, and should win offensive Rookie of the year. If they give it to Bush, then it's B.S.

    I had studied him, thought he'd be a good pickup for the Chargers for his size
    But eveyrthing I saw said he was raw, said he was undisciplined in his route running and was immature
    He looks liek NONE of those

    As well?

    Please tell me where you can find games to watch of Hofstra! Never have i ever seen Hofstra on TV here......or Princeton.

    I find it odd you would ask somebody to send you tape of a player from Hofstra that you never seen play on TV before.

    Sorry Ant.... not trying to pick an arguement but me thinks you are BS'ing.

    If you don't get the Hofstra Football network, then you're missing out. Call your cable or satellite provider now!

    I also subscribe to the Hofstra Rowing Network by the way.

    Might be a good idea to research just why colston is doing well whereas alot of 1st round wr's tend to have trouble. MY guess is he's smart and works hard plus has some talent. But mainly that he works hard and is smart.:icon_party:

    Like Jay McCareins who I had never seen before I asked for the tapes of him, I had heard of him through footballsfuture.com, they had a profile of him, he sounded interesting. I have a friend who watches college football in the new york area, so I asked him to send me a few game tapes of him.
    Only way you find sleepers is to read about them and then investigate them yourselves.

    edit; and if your wondering how i knew about McCareins out of princeton, former associate of mine at NDB was raving about him so I asked him to send me the game tapes.

    I think Colston could be the runaway winner for OROY.

    It would be the first time in a while that a WR wins it. It's usually a RB or QB, but I can't think of a rookie QB or RB that has done more than he has.


    Unless you count Philip Rivers as a rookie...... :lol:

    Id heard of Jay McCareins and figured he would go undrafted....he did...dont think he is on a team either.

    OK...thanks for clearing that up. I was just curious because i know they arent seen in these parts but the sleepers are for AJ to find.

    Colston would have been a nice one since he was the 4th to last pick in the draft.

    I have Jennings on one of my teams as well. You were right....he will be one of the best WT;s from this draft.
