Hearing Kenny Stills/WR/Oklahoma will also enter the draft. ...
his previous tweet was about another WR, I think from TENN
Shouldnt be a shock if he does
It's news since its NEW info, he's talking to agents, oh well, will Kenny play on the outside in the nfl? how effective will he be? OU not doing too well sending WRs to the NFL yet.
Nevermind...just saw what "also" meant?
expected this since he and TJ talked about it before the season started
I would be shocked if Stills did anything in the NFL, I've never seen a "4.3 guy" that looked so slow.
Stills is a possession reciever due to his unwillingness to attempt to break a tackle. If a defender is even close, he falls to the ground. Possession recievers dont drop balls as often as he does. Some games he is great, others he is not. Too inconsistent right now IMO. Straight line speed is good and does catch the ball with his hands. Route running is good but not great.
He may go, but he needs another year.
we really need TJ to stay more than stills...not sure if next year will help his stock with breaking in a new qb but it'd be a good security blanket for bell/knight/thompson to have an experience wr to help him
I don't have a problem with Kenny leaving. There are too many reasons why he should leave (Inexperienced QB, risk of injury, the offense could be changed). He's going to get his money while he can. He had a good career at Oklahoma and I'll be rooting for him in the NFL.
Now he can smoke the weed.... lets hope he does not get a hot test in the combine
ha he must have read this thread...just tweeted "gotta hear it from the horses mouth"
I haven't been following the draft stock charts lately so if he's expected to go 1st or 2nd round, then I wouldn't blame him for taking the money now. Too many athletes come back for another year and then get hurt. I think he could use another year personally.
Yes, but he has made some big time catches for us over the past couple years, but he was never the same after getting his bell run in that FSU game in Tallahassee... that is when he started dropping to the ground after the catch. He don't like getting hit.
He is not ready imo. I don't think he will be a very good pro
I could be wrong, but I thought I saw somewhere that Kenny said something that implied he was coming back. I know a friend of Slick's - he says he will be back. Of course things change, and until we hear it from the kids themselves we have no idea. If these two stay - that is a major trend at OU. We have had some big time players come back for their Sr. seasons.
In this day and age do you ever hear anything from the "horse's mouth"?
Kenny's awesome. He'll stay.
Kenny is a great blocker down field
Unfortunately Stills will not do much in the NFL IMO
I hope you're right. Shepard was shiny new to the big leagues as a FR too and he was out there embarrassing people all season. I expected to see at least SOME glimmer of Metoyer's possible greatness given his hype, but I saw nothing from him in any game. Jack. Zero. Nada. Got passed over? Seemed to me like he got flat out benched for suckage once Saunders got eligibility.
An NFL reciever is like Brandon Jones or Mark Clayton. Clayton caught everything and you had to tackle him....if you could catch him. He caught the ball and made people give an effort to tackle him. Jones didnt have the hands Clayton did, but was very fast and would make you have to tackle him too. I remember one game, we drove down the field throwing 5 yard outs to Jones and he never ran out of bounds. He would catch it, turn towards the middle of the field and welcome the contact from the defender, not shy away. All that said, what Stills needs to do is be able to bring it game after game. Like Clayton, Jones, Iglesias, Broyles, Kelly and more that I am sure to miss. Stills has yet to be a sure go to guy because of his unwillingness to sell out to catch the ball. Now, when he is fully invested, he is money, but that usually happens when he knows he will not get hit. If he thinks he might get hit, he will give half hearted effort. He has to learn how to do it every game like the other WRs I mentioned before. This year, our go to guys on offense have been Saunders, Brown, Williams, Millard and Clay. I wouldnt put Still ahead of them as a go to guy. I really hope he stays and invests in being more consistent and more explosive.
Call me an idiot but Justin Brown, and Saunders (2nd half of season) out performed him this season. JMO
I feel he is too lazy. We never see him utilize that speed that everyone raves about.....
Maybe that is why he missed those passes vs TCU, had his mind on the draft.
Our best reciever this year has been either Saunders or Brown, take your pick. I still say Stills needs another season, but if he isnt going to commit to getting tougher, stronger and quicker, then he will be wasting his time.
Players develop at difference paces and there are a number of other factors. Metoyer may end up a bust or may may pan out, but I wouldn't write him off until he's been given a lot more time.
i agree that another season could only help him as a receiver but could hurt him in draft due to bell being QB.
Unless you are a sure fire top 2 or 3 pick at your position you stay. Kenny has been great at OU but will only improve his draft position with another year.
Never fails when a guy might enter the draft early. He doesn't do this, he doesn't do that, I still remember people calling out Peterson's game when he left early too. Easily the most ready NFL prospect Stoops has produced since he has been here. He didn't do this or that well enough with some even arguing we would be better without him.
If the best argument you have is he drops some passes(all receivers do this), he "looks" slow and he is soft. He should definitely go, cause he isn't going to "look" any faster, he will still drop some passes next year and 1 more year won't make him more likely to take hits.
It's also weird that the 3rd best receiver on the team had the most catches, yards and touchdowns. Btw Allen Patrick is better than Adrian Peterson.
