Dri Archer is exactly what this team needs! He single handedly can change a game when the ball is in his hands. If you watch this kid play, he will completely make you forget about Kenjon Barner and Jonathan Franklin.

He returns kicks and does a damn good job of it. 3 Return TDs this year

He has unbelievable hands. Great WR when needed. Over 500 yards receiving this year

Great runner - 150 attempts, 1350 yards rushing.

This kid has unbelievable vision and has the speed (low 4.3 speed) to bust through any hole. Spins off hits and breaks away. He doesnt fall over if he gets touched like Barner. Tough to wrap up.

He is second in the nation in all purpose yards. IF he declares, big IF, the Bengals need to grab him. De'Anthony Thomas clone!

I dont know if he would go that early! Very explosive but you really dont hear to much about him. I am sure if he blows up the game tonight, theres a good chance he declares. But who knows. I would go 5th or 6th maybe. I really dont know though!

This video should be all you need to know about Dri Archer. No one could even hold his jock on this play:

Oh yeah, nobody in the NFL would have caught him on that kickoff.

According to the ESPN announcers, Dri Archer ran a 4.28 40 yard dash judged on an electronic clock. Draft this kid. Crazy quick and unbelievably good.

Only player in the country with 1300 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards. Makes the explosive plays look easy

LT from KSU (#66 Brian Winters) is huge abd carries a 3-4 round grade. Love how he "corrected" his teammate there.

You sure about that last part? Just off the top of my head I know Kerwynn Williams has reached both of those totals at 1500 rushing and 700 receiving.

I like Archer though, I do question how long he would last in the NFL at 5'8 160 pounds. We need a return guy though so hey if he is there in 5 or 6 go for it.

He's a faster version of Tavon Austin.

Thats what ESPN put on the screen. Who knows with ESPN though.

Archers TDs:

15 Rushing
4 Receiving
3 Return
1 Passing

The kid can literally do it all.

His size will be the only factor.

I dont think the Bengals will consider Dri Archer unless they get rid of Baby Hawk

Dri Archer is more versitlie then baby hawk. He brings the game-changing homerun threat speed, with unbelievable balance and agility with great vision as a RB.

Fantastic hands and a deep play threat as a WR.

Rivals D-Thomas as the best Kick returner in college football.

His only issue is his injury liability. He isnt very big and gets banged up. Bring this kid in and let him run wild. You could have your own Dri Archer playbook.

I agree. Guys like Archer you just don't pass up in the middle rounds or so.

Skye Dawson is another guy who fits that mold as well.
