Spoofing the old Spike Lee/Jordan commercial:

Here's the 2nd cut that just features more Cameron and his redonkulous hops:

Thats pretty damn athletic for a TE, what round is he projected currently? Interesting comparison to Jimmy Graham at the end of the clip.

Somewhere in the middle of the draft (3rd to 5th round). He's not quite as NFL ready IMO as Jimmy Graham was last year. But I do think they offer similar upside.

Graham showed steady progress over the course of his last year at Miami to the point that he had emerged as a go-to threat by the time they played Wisconsin in their bowl game. The same was not the case for Jordan Cameron, who never became more than a seldom-used No. 2 TE and 3rd down option.

He seems to be one of the "disconnect" type players, freaky in testing, etc., but nothing like that in actual game production. Gimma production all day every day.

What do you think of Graham on NO, dude was turning it on by the end of last year, and certainly made Shockey expendable. He worries me to be honest if he keeps developing, as he adds another dynamic dimension to their O. If NO's uses him like GB did Finely, thats even worse. I want one of these TE's, and preferrably while Gonzo can still get in his ear and teach him something.

Oh, I think Cameron has potential to be a very good TE. The issue with Cameron is that you want to wait until the 3rd/4th round before you draft him.

As for Graham, I said it on draft day last year, the Falcons just got screwed. He is going to be a matchup nightmare going forward.

Here's hoping Spoon & Moore become significantly better in coverage.
