Kendall Beckwith – Guy is built for football. Has all the tools in the world, and with Chief at his disposal, he will thrive. I really want this guy at LB, as I think we will be extremely stacked at DE, and could really use someone of his size to anchor the LB position. He seems to have the lateral quickness to pull it off, and if he does, it will be a spectacle.
DeSean Smith – Soft hands. His style reminds me of Reuben Randle(very effortless looking in both stride and catch), and will absolutely thrive in Camerons offense. Look for TE play the likes of which we hadn’t seen since Richard Dickson in 07, and maybe even before that. Perfect timing to add a guy with his skillset to the new offense. A very smart decision by Smith to come to LSU.
Michael Patterson – I think he will take about two/three years in the program to develop, which is a great luxury to have because when he does turn the corner, he will be a terror. I peg him to be one that goes unnoticed for a bit only to shock fans on the field his RSSoph year to come seemingly out of nowhere. He is raw, but his ceiling is very high.
Kevin Spears – Though it seems like he was a late target due mainly to missing on other prospects, I really liked this pickup. This kid is the Boom or Bust guy in the class. I for one believe he was worth the risk as he had only been playing football one year, and his highlight reel was extremely impressive. I believe he is one of the true under the radar prospects as his film didn’t even begin to circulate until after his senior year. I look forward to seeing him thrive in an offense that caters to larger receivers and of course, once moffitt famously gets a hold of him.
Tre White – I feel like he was well touted on this board, so I wont elaborate much. Loved his film from get. At the all star game, he proved what many of us had already suspected, he is the next great in line at DBU.
