Default Cal Poly WR Ramses Barden

6'6"/227lbs. i heard a great interview with him and he was really impressive. very confident yet extremely humble. not profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfiltery at all. for his pro day he had sub 4.5 (im pretty sure, maybe it was 4.5something) and a sub 4.3 shuttle cone (i think he said 4.22). my bad- i heard wrong. it was 7.1 (which is still pretty damn good for a man of his size.

pat kirwan noted how he'd be a perfect big guy, red zone threat for the steelers and then tim ryan reminded him that limas sweed is pretty big too.

any thoughts on this guy or ideas where he's projected? he seems to have marquez coulston written all over him.

looks like frisco fans are drooling for him in the 3rd which probably puts him out of our range. nobody is a "sleeper" anymore.

I just want our O-Line rebuilt, re-geared, re-engineered.............ummmm, a new one? 1 or two OL's in the next couple of years that are completely capable of starting within a year. Not this 5th, 6th, or 7th round trash that we end up cutting like usual.

I tend to agree with this comparison a lot more. I've never been sold on Barden. I think he is a big risk. If we are talking mid round picks, I would much rather have Mike Thomas. And he's 5'8.

He is a big target that looked like he didnt get in and out of his breaks that well and didnt have the kind of quickness off the ball to gain much separation. The fact that he is 6'6" and has long arms makes everybody drool over his "red zone potential", but I think we already have tall guys like Miller, Spaeth, Sweed that dont get used in the red zone...........so why add another.

Ramses Barden/WR/Cal-Poly: Barden is an imposing 6-foot-6, 227-pound pass catcher with reliable hands. He presents himself as a terrific red zone threat who out-muscles defenders for the reception. The faster Barden runs at the combine, the earlier he'll be drafted.

Barden ran a 4.68 at the combine. but he improved that with a 4.51 at his pro day.

There is no way I would touch him on Madden with that speed.... and after all, isn't Madden the final arbiter of all things football?
