Draft Profile: Marquise Lee

Fox Sports profiles potential first round wide receiver Marquise Lee.

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Lee might not be the biggest or the fastest receiver in this year’s draft class, but it is commonly agreed that he might be a good fit for a timin-based passing offense and could be productive from early in his career.  The Jets have displayed some interest in Lee thus far during the pre-draft process.

Draft rumblings right now are the 49'ers making a big move up to draft mike Evans!

i hope they do!

Oakland seems to be the likely partner.

Lee is my choice at WR since Watkins and Evans will be long gone. But i would rather take Ebron if he's still there somehow and then take someone like Jordan Matthews in round 2.


Also, i wouldn't mind taking a chance on Bradley Roby in the 2nd or 3rd who's a 1st rd talent at CB but his stock has fallen since he was arrested last weekend or something. Ebron, Matthews, Roby would dramatically improve our team all around and would give us the most value, or at least in my opinion lol. Can't just go WR in the 1st just cuz everyone wants one either. I don't see what everyone else see's in Beckham, would prefer Cooks over him and Lee over both.

Here's a Draft for you, I just ran this at Fanspeak:


#18 Beckham WR

#49 Attaochu OLB

#80 Hyde RB

#104 Desir CB

#115 Thomas OG

#137 Exum CB

#154 Pierre-Louis LB

#195 Lucas OT

#209 Duncan TE

#210 Brown LB

#213 Norwood WR

#233 Southward S


This would be an awesome draft to me.....an awful lot of talent there and really good value picks.

Marqise Lee compares to Victor Cruz- his agility, acceleration and soft hands make him a natural playmaker. It is unknown whether Lee can salsa, but he's a breathtaking talent who should have plenty of opportunities to develop touchdown dances of his own in the NFL.

WAITING FOR THE DRAFT F$%#ing SUCKS!!  The NFL Could do one round a week to really milk it if they want. It would be cool. First round on Thursday. 2nd round a week later. We'd spend all week strategizing & the NFL would make even more $$. We'd all be mildly satisfied.

@a57se  There are few things in public life that   remain silent.  Moving up or down in the NFL draft is one of them. Any GM who reaches said position is yet to tip his hand  until his team is on the clock.

@a57se SF could use Manziel too, Kap threw the game play off game away

You think Watkins will go before the Raiders pick

@a57se  


It would be a costly move...but SF have enough picks to get it done.  Two two's and three three's.    Would probably take one of each plus their first.

@Ronnie Taveras or Lee and Amaro, is not bad, but if they take a top CB and Amaro and then Moncrief it won't be a bad deal

Hazard2012
Hazard2012

@a57se  


No Moncrief?   Thought we had a deal!    


Be delighted with this, even Hyde...but more and more I want DAT now, too, as a luxury we can now afford with CJ in hand.   DAT brings a whole new dimension to the O and ST the likes we haven't had since Leon Washington.   


Like combining Exum and Desir.   I'd even consider getting Colvin, too, but then you know how I feel about our secondary.

@a57se  What WRs & CBs did you pass on in rds 1 & 2?

@Pat d  do they rank WRs? In what order do they rank the top 10?

The first round would have been last night if the Draft was held at its' normal time.

@Hazard2012 @a57se 

For a near full value trade it would cost SF the folowing:

Oakland pick no. 5 is worth 1700 points.

SF picks:

no. 30 = 620

no. 56 = 340  total = 960

no. 61 = 292  total = 1252

no. 77 = 205  total = 1457

no. 94 = 124  total = 1571

no. 129 = 43  total = 1615

no. 170 = 23.4 total = 1638.4

they have three 7th rounders worth a whopping 6 points bringing their grand total to 1644.4 points.

They do have a 3rd round Comp pick that can not be traded.


Oakland has a history of taking a lot less than full value (last year with the Dolphins they took ~ 75% value) so if they are desperate

they may take most of these picks for a deal. If they are hard line, then SF has to cough up something from next year.

If we had the two third rounders like when revis was still a Buc...

I really like my 4th round here, wouldn't take DAT over any of those guys.

Yeah it gives me something to read while at work. I also like to read up on the RBs, because I always draft a couple of rookie RBs for my fantasy team.

@Hazard2012 @a57se 

Well they might be able to trade next years on and this years one with a couple late rounders or something.

@a57se @Hazard2012  


Ouch!   I can't see SF doing that, can you?   I mean they don't have lots of holes but it''s not as if TE is their only need.   But the clock is ticking on Harbaugh there, isn't it...like it's ticking on Denver and NE.   Maybe they go 'all-in', too.   


Moving down, repeatedly, would make sense for Oakland, however, but they might get more value moving down incrementally rather than all at once.

Yeah, I try and go complimentary when I pick a second guy at a position.....I did one with Walter Football board and ended up with Moncrief and Janis.

@a57se @Hazard2012  


Agree re Norwood.   I also like TJ Jones as a later round WR.   Jeff Janis, too.  


Re DAT...that's the problem...he may not be there beyond 5.   

a57se

@Hazard2012 @a57se 

He wasn't on the board when I took Norwood......the kid from Alabam is a nice little under the radar type of WR...

Hazard2012
Hazard2012

@a57se @Hazard2012  


Know what you mean re extra top picks...and do like your 4th rounders...but I'd still like to snag DAT somewhere in the mix given what he could bring to the table on both O and ST.    Maybe in lieu of Norwood...

a57se

@WW85 @a57se 

I probably pass....too much risk with Barr. He is a real project to me.

@a57se Barr is falling on a lot of boards.  IF he's there at 18, what do u think?

You've had better mock drafts Susan....

Brandin Cooks compares to Tavon Austin. Cooks is a slightly bigger, not as fast version of Austin due to explosive feet, open field moves and natural athleticism that makes him a home run threat whenever he touches the ball.

We're beginning to agree entirely too much.  


Would love to see Moncrief paired with either Beckham or Cooks....throw in Decker and one of the TE's ... ASJ, Amaro or Niklas...now add our backfield, with DAT sprinkled-in...


FOUGETABOUTIT!

@a57se @Hazard2012 @Pat d  


That's what I think, too.   IMO, he's the best WR in this draft after Sammy and Evans, and he might even give them a run for their money in time if he develops the way I think he will.      

Hazard2012

@Pat d  


Not sure that's who Hank had in mind...he's probably talking about Johnny Footbawl...


...but I like the Moncrief move for the Geno trade pick.   In two years time he's a #1 WR on 75% of the teams in the league.
