    1 Eric Deslauriers WR 6-4 201 SOPH from Gatineau, PQ (Lennoxville College Prep) from Quebec, he was a QB but switched to WR. I just checked and he is curently leading the nation in yardage!

    Yes, notice all the "press coverage" he is getting for being one of the top receivers. I'm sure he will be enticed to leave college early so he can be a top 10 draft pick like so many other college receivers (sarcasm off).

    Well it looks like he will end up 3rd in the country in
    receiving.That is incredible for a guy who used to be a quarterback.I guess we are looking at another Drew Bennett. That's a good guy to be compared to.Good luck to him in the Bowl Game.

    Yes, Deslauriers (pronounced de-law-re-ay) was voted 2nd team All-MAC. How about that! Third in the country in yards received and all he can get is 2nd team honors from a lower level conference. What about the black guys that were first team? Why didn't they have more yards? Deslauriers plays locally for me and I cannot remember a special article on him but OH BOY every week it's another University of Michigan receiver with a feature article.

    as i've mentioned on the All-American thread, Eric looks to be the real deal, but since i've only seen him once it's hard to see what exactly he brings to the table. why? becuase EMU got trounced by Michigan and he hardly touched the ball. and if EMU's QB is that awful all the time, it's amazing that Eric EVER makes a play, making his stats all the more unbelievable! he is big and fast, though. the brief glimpses i got of him running routes reminds me a lot of plaxico burress who played at Michigan State a few years back.

    Deslauriers has already been all but consigned to the CFL after his upcoming senior season. From an article on Canadian college players:


    WR Eric Deslauriers ~ Eastern Michigan -- Tall, lanky senior wide receiver, who burst onto the national scene as a sophomore in 2004 after he hauled in 84 receptions for over 1,200 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Eagles. A former prep quarterback from the province of Quebec, Deslauriers was converted to wide receiver soon after arriving at Eastern Michigan........In 2005, the official site of the Canadian Football League did a spotlight on Deslauriers and the feeling among Canadian scouts was he will get a look south of border at some point, but will likely fall short of his NFL goals due to his lack speed and inability to break free of defenders jams off the line. Those same scouts feel he'll make an ideal slot-receiver in Canada....Was recently selected in the first round of the CFL Draft by Montreal.

    Darn that lack of speed and jams at the line! he could only be the third best receiver of the season (yardage wise), if only he was faster he may have been what? the second or even first ranked college receiver.

    The double standard that exist is so bizzare, you actually have sportwriters writing this guy off because he is white and they really cannot see that, yet it is so obvious.

    I know all these people are brainwashed and some have an agenda but don't some of these guys have a heart, a little compassion?

    I really hope Eric has a great season this year so that they'll be forced to invite him to the combine and then he can show the scouts how fast he really is.
