That was good but its still only unofficial!
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
That was good but its still only unofficial!
He measured in at 5'7. That will hurt his draft stock. But I don't think it matters when he is drafted. He would be a steal in the 3rd round. He just makes plays. And plays much bigger than 5'7.
In the 3rd round he wouldn't be a steal. That's implying he's a first or second round talent. He's not. He might have a nice career, but he'd be a steal in 5-7. Nobody will take a chance on him any higher than that.
I don't think you're right. I think someone takes him in 3-4th. They'd be stupid not to.
I believe Lucky Socks was saying that he'd be a steal in the 5th-7th rounds, but that he fits in the 3rd-4th rounds. So you're essentially saying the same thing.
But he plays like he's 5'8".
Tavon Austin was the 8th overall pick last year, and he measured 5'8" at the combine. Gallon isn't as ridiculously explosive as Austin, but I think a lot of NFL teams are starting to look beyond height in a receiver, particularly now that everyone uses spread formations with slot receivers.
I just hope he ends up on a decent team that knows how to use a slot receiver, not some crappy team like Jacksonville.
Of course he measured 5"7. Did you expect him to magically be 6ft ? We have known he's short, but this forty time is great ! He seemed shifter than fast to me, I expected a mid 4.5. Great news for Gallon !
i'm going to file his height as a non factor since the man can leap vertically at twice that height. not to mention the ball magnet hands, and the romulan star empire cloaking device built in.
Didn't he get best time among top OL prospects?
What's most impressive to me about lewan is that with him at 300 pound and me at 175, it would take a distance of at least 200 meters for me to even come close to beating him in a foot race. And, it would take at least a half mile for me to soundly beat him.
It's absolutely incredible how explosive he is.
was 6th among the OL (made the scrolling list on NFL Network).
should have trained like Gallon, Gallon's way faster....
I would take gallon in a second in one of the later rounds. Best of luck to a true warrior and Michigan man.
4.42 on the second run (unofficial of course)
Nice! Even faster. How many runs do they get? Any chance he cracks the 4.3 wall?
Hes second run was a 4.42
For the patriots.
I am hoping he goes to Detroit in the 4th or 6th. He is a good blocker and the Lions need somebody other than a RB to go underneath with a big catching radius.
I was thinking the same thing. Brady would love a weapon like Gallon. The other team I could see him fitting well with is Chicago. With the two big receivers constantly drawing attention on the outside Gallon would get some great match ups in the slot. Add the TE Chicago has and that is a point scoring machine. Also, living here in Denver I hear some rumors about the Broncos dropping Welker to be able to resign Decker (which receivers they should keep is a big talk radio topic out here), and if they go that route Gallon would be a great weapon for Manning. Hope Gallon has a great NFL career.
Yea. Brady to Gallon. I could cheer for that.
No true Michigan fan should ever wish that fate on a Wolverine.
I bet he'll get drafted late and stick in the NFL for years as a ninja slot guy. He's just too good for his size
It's a pretty safe bet that he's a mid round guy.
I look for someone like the Eagles to draft him. Especially since they're about to lose Maclin.
They need to slot guy in Kelly's offense. Patriots are a right fit in scheme, but they need outside WR help.
Height isn't a big factor at slot so these times could sneak Gallon into the fourth round. I'm proud of Gallon because he worked hard to make himself a very good receiver.
Brandin cooks with the fastest time so far at 4.30. That should help the biletnikof winner. To bad he spells his name wrong.
I honestly was expecting a slower time. He's going to be a solid NFL receiver.
I've been bouncing between the two online feeds trying to catch him and haven't seen him.
Btw anyone catch Latimer's bench? Looked effortless getting to 20.
He would be so much easier to spot. Just caught him catch a curl but without them calling his name I wouldn't have known.
Bad throws or he was just missing the ball?
He caught them all. Most humans are too slow to notice how quickly he discards the ball after a secured catch.
If that skill translated to a football edge, Gallon would be the #1 overall pick.
That's cuz he's a ninja.
Man I really hope he goes somewhere that utilizes the slot man or have a QB that can get him the ball. He deserves that! I'll be a huge fan wherever he goes!
But both Welker and Amendola have carved out roles after going undrafted despite outstanding college production. Given the depth of this WR draft, that very well may be Gallon's fate.
Ya but he plays like he's 5'9''
Come to Indy, Jeremy!!!
Great showing. Still a little short, but he'd be a terror in space on the right team.
I think he did Ok he didnt really Wow everyone Like Taylor Lewan
Michigan NFL talent Pool has declined considerably for developing players for the NFL Level Yes it has a history yes it has Tradition however When Johnny Football runs a time comParable to one of Michigans best Athletes Jeremy Gallon what is that saying...Brady Hoke needs get staff too recruit against guys like Urban Meyer and Mark Dantonio Kevin Sumlin Nick Saban etc. Then Michigan players will have more revelance then just Hype and past Glory..I dont see it happening under Hoke he is a JOKE
Are you from East Lansing or tWSE?
There is so much wrong with your post.
First of all, what difference does it make if "Johnny Football" (whose 40 time I don't know) runs close to the same time as Jeremy Gallon? Even in a good year, most teams don't have a participant in the Combine who runs a 4.45 forty. All that means (if Manziel was close) is that Manziel ran a very good 40 time and is a good athlete, which...well...he won the Heisman and stuff.
Secondly, Hoke's first recruits - the ones he got with about three weeks left in the 2011 recruiting cycle - just finished their junior or redshirt sophomore seasons, and none of them have even had a chance to particpate in the NFL Combine yet or get drafted.
Third, your post seems like a bunch of incoherent babble.
Fourth, the "Hoke is a joke" rhymes are lazy and old.
I refuse to call him "Johnny Football" in place of his actual name.
He ran something like a 4.69, so he wasn't even close to Gallon. In fact, he was over .2 slower.
The troll can't even get its facts straight.
Manziel's 40 time was actually closer to Taylor Lewan's than it was Jeremy Gallon's.
...the best way to deal with a troll is to silently neg him and move on. Responding to him is the last thing you want to do.
While you were gone, there has been no shortage of MGoBlog articles on the ridiculous attrition rates of the weak 2009-2011 recruiting classes. Shocking how sparse upper-class production translates into a limited number of NFL prospects.
