Jeremy Gallon - Draft Day

Submitted by BlueCube on May 8th, 2014 at 8:34 AM

Here's a nice article on MLive about Jeremy Gallon and what his plans are for draft day.

Nothing too exciting but it's Jeremy Gallon and he deserves a NFL draft thread.

He's someone I will follow wherever he goes. I think he's going to make a good pro because he's never going to stop working to improve.

I think he gets drafted, but someone could reach for him in round 4, or he could fall out fo the draft completely (which isn't all that bad, really). I feel like if I was in that position I would try to keep things as normal and chill as possible. Just try to do things to keep my mind off of it and relax with friends and family doing something completely different.

Sitting around, waiting, worrying about when you'll be taken would be heart wrenching. I suggest trying to avoid doing that as it won't change anything other than be a lot of stress.

...but I don't think 4th round is "reaching" for Gallon. He's a 4-5 rounder to me.

I think 2nd round would be a reach.

Personally, I think he's 3-6, which is still a very wide range.

I wish the draft went back to being a week before the Kentucky Derby and Friday, Saturday, Sunday.

It was just so much better for fans to be able to get done with work on Friday and check out the first round of the draft. Then have Saturday to recap and do rounds 2-3. And the Sunday, NFL Day, leave the last 4 rounds to the die hards.

I used to love relaxing and watching the late rounds on Sunday and waiting for a lot of the guys that I knew and watched at Michigan or play Michigan, but weren't national names...watching those guys get drafted.

This is just draft overload and I hate it. It makes me not want to watch any...but I probably will.

I love Gallon and I think he is gonna surprise people in the NFL, but he wont go in the 2nd. The earliest he will be picked is in the 5th. Maybe the 4th. Nothing wrong with that though. He is short and slow, so people are gonna underestimate him. It wil only make him work that much harder

he just isn't a 2nd round pick. IMHO, he is more around the 6th but I'm not picking. He could be selected by a team earlier (no sooner that best) that wants a great route/hand slot guy but those are a dime a dozen. He may be a combine 4.4/4.5 guy but in pads he's a 4.7 guy. Not going to outrun the average NFL DB. Yet, he's silky smooth with an ability to make you miss in space. Good but not great hands, about what the NFL would deem average for a WR. IMHO, he likely won't get drafted but I do have an odd feeling he'll go on the 6th or 7th. I feel the opposite about Gallon than I did too many UM guys that had NFL size, speed, etc but went UDF or way later than I graded them (to varying results). Thinking he is anything above a 4th rounder is being a homer, IMO. Yet, there is going to be a run on WRs so his stock may rise quickly! Some predicting as many as 7-9 1st round WRs so.......we'll see. Hope he grabbed a team's attention.

He may be a combine 4.4/4.5 guy but in pads he's a 4.7 guy.

Ok, he's slower in pads than he was at the combine. So is everyone else. So he's still not as slow as some of us thought.

no doubt agree.  teams no longer guaranteed to keep you just bc they spent 4th rd pick.  its not all bad if he has the chance to pick his spot as undrafted FA.  the dudes gonna stick around for several contracts and easily earn his pension.  hes just too tirleless of a worker and too smart to not impress in camp, plus hes excellent blocker for his size, hes more advanced in route tree execution than many college wrs, and the 40" vert never hurts .  question is can he really find the right team, even after a year or two, that allows him to put those mitts to use in the slot often enough?  loved watching this dude and really respect his game.  hopefully he ends up getting a legit shot at longevity

It is nice to see Gallon's work ethic carry over into his approach to getting onto an NFL roster, which I believe he will do because it just seems like there is that much potential and many teams could use someone like him. As he says at the end, "Keep working. Keep pushing for greatness" - he did that here at Michigan and became an excellent player, and it is an attitude that will definitely help him shine at the next level.

I see Gallon as a 4-5 rounder and I hope he goes to a team that has a legit outside threat. I know my beloved Lions have been a clusterfuck but I would love to see him here.

3 picks in the fourth round.  would love to see them use one on gallon.  i think him in the slot with calvin and tate would be a great spot for him to use his abilities
