  If you're wondering why Henry Ruggs III is fast climbing up NFL draft boards, listen to two of his old coaches. Listen to Tyrone Rogers, Ruggs' coach at Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery, Ala. "He plays bigger than what he is," Rogers told The Post. "When I had him, he was only like 5-11, 6-foot, 165 pounds. … You can't tell Henry that he's not 6-4, 220." Listen to Maryland coach Michael Locksley, who was Ruggs' wide receivers coach and assistant offensive coordinator for Nick Saban at Alabama. "He's got a little of Steve Smith toughness, Hines Ward … to me, that type of mentality," Locksley told The Post. "Receivers get high ankle sprains, and some of those guys are done for three, four games. He tapes it up and comes back in. He's gonna play. He loves to play." So Henry Ruggs III is much more than another Tyreek Hill - with none of the accompanying baggage - much more than a former track star who blazed a 4.27 40 at the combine.

What would Rogers tell NFL GMs about Henry Ruggs III? "Ultimate competitor," Rogers said. "You don't have to worry about him off the field." What would Locksley tell NFL GMs about Henry Ruggs III? "I think everybody knows the deep-play threat that he has," Locksley said, "but what you typically see in receivers, and they get that tag as prima donnas - this guy is a workhorse, he plays injured, he plays through pain, he plays very physical without the football … student of the game, a guy that can play all the different positions, learns really well. Unlike most of the receivers that you see nowadays with the flamboyantness, he's kind of your old-school, old-fashioned, let-his-game-do-his talking." A jet for the Jets, perhaps. - NY Post
