Sheldon Cooper Posted October 29, 2014 Share Posted October 29, 2014 1)Speed, at or under 4.50 for big guys, 4.40 for small guys.2)Hands, the percentage of balls he catches or drops is important to me. 80% ideal, shy away from 50%ers. This is where our guys falter.3)Strength, not just for blocking. If he is strong off the line and battling for the ball he is for me. This is where Douglas fails. 4)Jump balls, this applies especially to TE's who are now covered by faster DB's, but it applies to WR's as well and could be an extension of strength. My guy needs to come down with contested passes. 5)RAC, more true for the smaller guys who often are also return men in college. This is down the list for me as you have to get open and catch the ball first, but a guy that can make moves in the open field and add to the completion are icing on the cake.6)Intangibles, run blocking is important and if you are strong this should not be a problem. SELLING YOUR FREAKING ROUTE EVEN WHEN YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT THE PRIMARY TARGET is my main thing here. I want a team player. Every member of a WR corp gets himself and or his team mates open on EVERY play. That said who is viable draft selections at WR this year and who is not?The thing to understand about past drafts is that very few players are great. Most are "busts" or dont live up to expectations. How do you avoid those same mistakes in the future? Learn from the past. Every GM is looking for the big AND strong guy in rd 1 and 2 which is why we traded up for Julio. The small but really fast guys are later rd picks but are moving up into 3rd rd consideration. TY Hilton and Emmanual Sanders come to mind as does former 6th rd pick Antonio Brown. Randall Cobb was a late 2nd rder. All productive players are worth the pick no matter where you get them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
