Lestar Jean - A Big wide receiver with skills. He was productive last preseason, but suffered an injury and was out for the year. He’s the closest replacement to Andre Johnson, if he goes down as usual.
Coby Fleener - A super athletic tight end. He will be a red zone favorite of Andrew Luck. Enough said.
Vick Ballard - A power running back. Tough-nosed guy brought in by new regime.
Donald Brown - A combine warrior. Not special.
Delone Carter - Not sold on him.
However, be careful of running backs on bad teams.
Rashad Jennings - You know the story. Big-time Pittsburgh recruit, transferred to Liberty. He’s a big back. He suffered a knee Injury last year, but didn’t require surgery.
Maurice Jones-Drew’s hold out and history of overuse is a formula for disaster.
Chris Johnson is a bargain between picks 7-12 in many mocks. Hearing new contract is incentive laden. I hope so!
Think tight end Jared Cook and wide receiver Kenny Britt are inversely proportional red zone guys. Draft Britt at a bargain with injuries and suspension pending. Draft Cook as TE2 and start him with huge upside when Britt doesn’t play. Cook may be fastest tight end in the NFL (freakish combine 40). Cook may emerge even further if Jake Locker breaks through. A tight end is a young quarterback’s best friend (see Coby Fleener above).
