Dri Archer Nickname Contest

Alright, so when you're a 3rd round pick that was really a 4th round pick and people are talking about you more than your teams 1st or 2nd round picks, I say that makes you worthy of a nickname.

Of course, when your prospects of success in the NFL are primarily the topic of debate, your nickname really has to reflect the fact that you're not necessarily worthy of an NFL nickname.

When you're one of the fastest players in the history of the sport, a tenth of a second faster than "Fast Willie" Parker in the 40, some acknowledgement of your speed needs to be made.

Everyone knows the speedy superhero "The Flash," but do you know the nickname of Archer's college football team? It's the Golden Flashes. As a Kent State graduate, it would be entirely appropriate to introduce him as Dri Archer, the Golden Flash, or as Dri Archer, the Kent State Flash.

When you take into account his speed, and the fact that it's an awesome old-school-style football nickname, I can't think of any reason you wouldn't refer to Archer as "The Kent State Flash.' If you had to, though, you could certainly shorten it to "The Flash" or "Flash" Archer. It's the perfect nickname for a guy that hasn't done, and may not do, anything in the NFL, but who undeniably comes into the league with something of a reputation.

What do you think, and what would be your suggestions?
