No way Lyerla comes here.
TFB12, ditto on Amaro. Came in overweight, average speed and not very strong looking.
I believe the Pats are looking DE/DT anyway and it will be someone they spend little, if any, time with.
I agree, Lyerla is too much of a risk, imo. I just don't see him coming to NE. Don't like his off the field problems and he looked horrible in the deeper routes in the combine yesterday.
My hopes were crushed yesterday with he showing of Amaro. Very, very disappointed. Was really looking forward to have him impress in the combine and making a push for this guy to drafted by the Pats.
[/QUOTE] The teams that pass on Lyerla after the second round will regret their mistake! He's the fastest of all TE's in this draft, he pumped 225@ 15 times Clowney only did 21 reps, he's 6'4" 245 lbs of combo RB/WR/TE, in my opinion he's arguably in the top tier of TE's in this draft. I'll just add his two times in the 40 for giggles: first run 4.47, second run 4.59.
I wouldn't touch Lyerla before the 6th round, and he won't be there at that point. Someone will roll the dice on him before our pick in the 4th. They can have him. Total headcase will cocaine issues. Those type of addictions don't just go away.
