Q giving props    

Don't know if anyone posted this so sorry if repost, but Darden landed on 24/7's top 100 draft prospects list at 91. https://247sports.com/LongFormArticle/2021-NFL-Draft-rankings-PFF-Top-100-pros

I wonder if he has any chance at this award? I don’t know if they have a list somewhere...

Looking at who they have recognized I doubt JD has a chance with Buechelle, King, McCormick, and Trask (among others of outstanding players) but would be cool to be a finalist.

Fantastic new article on JD:

“When he walks onto the field, he has the confidence that he’s the best one out there,” Mainord said. “That confidence is built in his work ethic. That’s who he is by nature. It’s well earned.”

Darden makes PFF AA 1st Team
 

 

Quote

 

Darden was a big-time explosive and shifty slot weapon for the Mean Green in 2020. He ranked in the top five in the entire FBS in slot receiving grade (87.6), broken tackles after the catch (19), explosive plays of 15-plus yards (18) and yards per route run (3.91).

He didn’t see a huge amount of single coverage, as he predominantly resided in the slot, but we saw a lot of open targets and explosive plays when he did. Over 34% of his targets against single coverage resulted in a 15-plus-yard gain, the ninth-best rate in the entire FBS.

Anyone know if Jaelon has hired an agent? If he hasn't, he's eligible to play another year.  I found some noise about this possibility.  Not sure how valid it is. nvm, misread this

If Darden doesn't get drafted I will leave this board forever. I know this will create some internal strife in all of you which is why I said it.

 

You better hope he doesn't run a 4.6 40 then, a time like that could wipe out his draft stock. He just needs to test well and I believe he is a lock for a day 3 pick.

That's a disgrace 

You also have to wonder when this list was decided. There are 4 or 5 FCS players - Are they all opting out of Spring ball? You would think that somehow Darden gets in

Is it possible that he opted out like the bowl game?
