Go get em Johnnie.
If he’s picked up in the later rounds I could see him being s good gunner on special teams. He can fly when healthy.
He knows best, but it seems to me that he has plenty of tape already. I suppose it is another opportunity to mingle with the NFL scouts and develop a rapport, but it seems like an unnecessary risk to me. Who pays the Dr. bills if he gets hurt? Does the NFL insure them?

It's an unnecessary risk if you're already viewed as an early round pick. Most likely he and his advisors have discussed his draft prospects, and determined that it was either a necessary or worthwhile risk.
At the end of the day it's simply amazing he has this opportunity after what seemed like 97 knee injuries. How can you not root for this guy?
Negativity is a choice.
I actually think he’ll find his way to play receiver in the NFL. He has good speed, route running and has a good head on his shoulders. He won’t be drafted high, but he has all the tools to be a great player.
I view him as a Doug Baldwin type player. Similar size/speed, lower ranked WRs in their respective draft classes. Like Baldwin, I think JD can make his name in the league as a reliable slot guy that can make a big play every now and then.

I'm still amazed by this group and him in particular. This man has been playing fearless--it's good to show and it will impress, imo. Go Johnnie, go
Wish the best to our receivers who are leaving! They have put in the work, blood, sweat and tears. I think they all deserve a shot to impress and make some pay. Good Luck
