Keep an eye on Taylor Price

Though he almost definitely won’t go until the second round at the earliest (especially since the Raiders used a top-ten pick on a wideout last year), there’s a receiver to keep an eye on as the draft approaches.

Taylor Price, who played for Peter King’s alma mater.  Pegged as a mid-round pick early in the process, we’re told his stock is rising because he’s one of the few high-end receiving prospects not dogged by character (Dez Bryant), injury (Demaryius Thomas), or size (Golden Tate) concerns.

So the former Ohio U. Bobcat could be a surprise pick on Friday night.  For now, we’ll return our focus to the guys who’ll be drafted on Thursday night.

  1. Actually, that doesn’t surprise me. I’ve seen him in mock drafts in the lower quarter of round 2.
    The real surprise will be if he is picked in the top 45.

  2. OU representin’. A top 10 party school, and for the second straight year churning out NFL talent. Well, sort of, the Raiders taking your player last year only kind of counts.

  3. As probably one of the only Ohio alums to frequent this site (everyone else is busy staggering down Court Street), I can avow for this guy – he’s flying way beneath the radar.
    He’ll be a good pick for anyone who gets him and surely come in and contribute sooner rather than later.
    Speedy and a great route runner.

  4. have u seen Desean Jackson?
    Yes. And Golden Tate will not be like Desean Jackson.

  5. Good height, good build, excellent speed, and reliable hands. Should be better than he was in college when he had no QB.

  6. he’s one of the few high-end receiving prospects not dogged by character (Dez Bryant), injury (Demaryius Thomas), or size (Golden Tate) concerns.
    ===============================
    No, he’s dogged by concerned that he’s an athlete pretending to be a receiver. Jerome Simpson-esque.
    crap, the bengals will take him in round 2. F-in’ A!

  7. Wasn’t Price the kid who had 155 receptions in 2009? You can’t deny that kind of production.
