First I will start off by saying that I have never been a big fan of small WR's. I was really confused when we drafted McCluster but I was confused throughout the whole Pioli era. But when looking at the smaller prospects of this draft class one guy stands out to me and that is Jalen Saunders.
Weight= 160 LBS
Projected 40 time= 4.33 to 4.4 Has been clocked at 4.33
Projected Round= 5-6
2013= 61 catches 729 yards 8 TD's 20 Punt returns 308 yards 15.4 average 2 TD's 1 Kick return 55 yards
2012= 62 catches 829 yards 3 TD's 5 Punt returns 88 yards 17.6 average 1 TD
2011= 50 catches 1065 yards 12 TD's 6 Punt returns 69 yards 11.5 average 32 Kick Returns 738 yards 23.06 average
As you can see this guy can come in and be a much better player than DMC every was or every was going to be in Andy Reid's offense I think he would be the replacement for DMC and could end up being much better on both the offense and special teams. I don't think that Dressler is going to come in and take this spot over he might help us but not as much as I think Saunders can.

I think this kid come come in and really give us a great option at the slot maybe even taking the mid to late round steal that was wrote about by Tecmo Legend in Cody Latimer and we could be looking good at WR especially if we can bring in a Vet for them to compete with. Let me know what you all think about this kid and his potential in our offense.
