Draft insider Tony Pauline has moved Mississippi State's Darius Slay up three rounds in his latest projections, now listing the CB as a second- or third-rounder.
Slay was previously listed as a fifth- or sixth-round prospect but now is the No. 8 player at the position. The Mississippi State product was frequently overshadowed by Johnthan Banks, but Slay has plenty of talent to make an impact in the NFL.
I have said over and over again, there isn't much difference between the two in terms of NFL ability. If Slay had been on campus for 4 years, he could have very well have won the Thorpe award instead of Banks.
Congrats to Slay and good luck
First, shame on Chris Wilson for wasting the talents of two NFL cornerbacks by playing them in a cover 3 zone and a soft cover 2 zone the majority of the time and not having them play aggressive press man coverage on the outside. There's a reason Geoff Collins is the new defensive coordinator.
Second, it's interesting to me that Ole Miss is telling players that they can get them to the NFL, yet it is Mississippi State that has produced what will be 3 first round picks in 3 years and will likely have a 2nd or 3rd round pick this year as well in Darius Slay.
TSUN lying to recruits big time, their '13 class is going to be feeling the pain in a couple of years. No doubt about it.
We can only hope the NCAA doesn't stand by and allow what they are doing to happen without repercussions. Hopefully, these players that are taking the money to go to Ole Miss will be allowed to move on when Ole Miss gets put on probation for their recruiting violations. Though part of me feels that if, as a player, you are on the take, you should be punished as well.
ive been saying it for a while. Slay will sneak into the late second to early third round
glad hes getting his due
