    You mean he'll make one nice catch during a pre-season game, make the practice squad, many people will slobber over him calling him a beast & begging for him to play, he'll get a chance to play, do nothing & then just disappear from the roster?
    haha, saw your name on the list of online members and KNEW you were going to say something along those lines.

    My camparison of him was strictly about how much hype he'll have
    ;D
    I'd say I give him a better chance to make the final (53 man, not PS) roster than Carter, but i'm going to reserve that till i actually see him in Kato vs NFL talent instead of what I see on youtube and what i've heard of him lol
    Smart man.

    There are still plenty who think if a player is good/great in college, they will automatically be good/great at the pro level.

    With all the jersey's I've collected through the years, I wish they had velcro name pads, so I could be retro or put a new name on... John Randell, or K. Williams.... Joe Kapp... Culpepper.....Sharper... Johnson etc..

    Chester Taylor was almost undrafted too.
    It took 4 years for him to blossom.

    Taylor's better than Onterrio Smith, Mewelde Moore and Ciatrick Fason, all of which were drafted by us in the 4th, yet Taylor was drafted later.
    There's this thing that happens where players get better as they play more.


    I might add Allen was drafted very late, and was considered nothing better than a career backup coming out of college.

    I heard that the Chiefs actually drafted him... get this! not as a DE, but as a long snapper.

    Yea, I heard that too.
    They probably had plans for him to play some DE though, because usually you don't burn a draft pick on a long snapper.
