Look who just snuck in to the Drafttek top 400.

Some people were wondering if he would get any love from the draft geeks; I guess he is.

Nick Allegretti is currently ranked #476 overall prospect. His stock has continued to fall since the East-West Shrine game.

Even though Chase is almost 100 spots ahead of Nick, both are in UDFA range.
I would be extremely shocked if Nick doesn't end up on an NFL roster next year. I would say the Vegas odds are on the Bears and Patriots. Not bad projected landing spots

Major pickup. Highlight film provides confidence that he can be a deep threat and strong possession receiver. Favorite to lead the team in receptions?
 
So at which point is it safe to actually count him as part of the roster? I'm only partially joking
I’m guessing that since he was here a week or so ago, this one is done. Especially since it took about almost a week for the announcement following his commitment. There are some more people to keep your eye on, but this one should be done. And the staff assessed his injury.

Helpful response, thank you.

Question: who are these other people to keep an eye on? Are you referring to incoming freshman or potential transfers that may not be on our radar?

If we can snag one more WR transfer that would really shore up my feelings on the upcoming season, great addition though

We are still favorable on the usc grad transfers. Either would be phenomenal for the program and offense and still considerably more talented than the receivers that we decommitted. I’m starting to understand why Lovie and company were not concerned about the defections.

If coaching staff is here another year, we will start to see greater utilization of the transfer market because the core of the team is built.
 
Personally, I'd like to see Coran Taylor line up as a WR. Do I think he will or would even excell? No clue, but I hate when great athletes (Aaron Bailey) never see the field and leave.
 
you feel me, dog?
Elmhurst
Hopefully, Brissett's ankle is healed and he's fully back. Truly believe he'll be a weapon for us. Need one more quality grad transfer WR. Maybe one of the ex-USC guys?

Thanks.

Based on the linked story, I assume we're talking about Josh Imatorbhebhe and Trevon Sidney?

If so, are we sure they are grad transfers and not regular transfers that have to sit a year or get a waiver? Both appear to have been class of 2016 recruits, which would mean they just finished up their true junior seasons, and would therefore need to have graduated early to be grad transfers?

I'm asking because I'm trying to clarify who might be coming in as immediate help in the upcoming season.

I will just point out that A.D. Miller actually attended team meetings, and still didn't make it.
