Absolutely Torn Between 3 Receivers

Transitioning away from all the pass rusher mumbo jumbo. This class is also deeeep at wide receiver. This deserves discussion considering Roddy's age, Julio's oft-injured seasons, Hankerson's inconsistency and injuries, Hester's lack of polish, and Weems being more of a special team's ace.

I think 3 guys could help us add more dimension to our receiving corp. I'd be satisfied with either.

Chris Conley, 6'2" 210, 4.35 speed

- His combine put him on the map, but Conley has been quietly producing for UGA for quite some time. His size makes him an easy candidate to play on the outside, however, I'm not sure how he'd fare in a slot role. Very reliable hands, makes the spectacular catch regularly and makes it look easy. I think a team may jump on him earlier than expected. I'd take him in the 3rd without hesitation.

Tyler Lockett, 5'10" 185, 4.4 speed

- Lockett is a lunch pail kind of guy. He's going to give you 110% at all times, and shows a level of toughness that is hard to match. Not flashy but has shown he can play any receiver position even at 5'10" 185 lbs. In fact, most of his career was played on the outside. Broke all kinds of records at KSU, and was easily their best offensive weapon. Not a true burner, but can stretch the field with ease. Great hands, but body catches a lot.

Phillip Dorsett, 5'10" 182, 4.3 speed

- Dorsett is a board favorite around here and for good reason. He's a blur and a terror in the YAC category. Shifty, but his best quality is his ball tracking ability. Field stretcher that will outrun any defender.

Personally, I like Justin Hardy more than Conley. But Lockett is a great route runner and Dorsett is explosive. Hardy reminds me of Steve Smith in a way.

My favorite is Tyler Lockett. He just gets the job done. I would tune into KState games just to watch him (and some linebacker who's name is slipping me), and Lockett would always jump off the screen.

As it stands now, I am really loving Conley. This is coming from a Tech fan. I think Matt Ryan will like him more as well, too. Matt seems to like bigger receivers.

Watch Conley run routes they are not that polished but he looks so natural and fluid. He was my 3rd rounder in my mock. I think he ends up a draft steal and I think he will do well in this offense. IMO he would be a 2nd rounder but he scared some folks a bit at the combine with some drops that do not show up in games.

Dorsett, Lockett, Conley

Basically 2nd, 3rd, and 4th round options. Maybe Lockett goes in the mid-late 2nd or Conley mid-late 3rd. WR class is deep so who knows.

I kinda like Vince Mayle in a late rd. I know his combine was crap, but i like his tape. Dude is strong with the ball in his hands.

Dorsett wouldn't be a good fit here. He excels very deep down the field and Matt Ryan lacks zip on his long throws which seem to hang a long time. Dorsett would be an awesome fit in Baltimore with someone like Flacco. I actually think Rashad Green from FSU would fit in nicely here. Great route runner who can play slot this and next year then take over for Roddy the following year. At worst your getting an awesome slot receiver. He should also be there in the 3rd.

Conley is one player that has too many drops. We already have a few of those guys on the team. Lockett on the other hand seems to use his hands to catch. The Falcons are in real need of a guy that will catch the ball reliably, and then be able to outrun someone.

The thing that I like about Conley is something that doesn't show up on his highlight reel. This kid is tough as nails. If he didn't play in a game, then trust me he must've been hurt pretty bad.

The guy played his entire senior season with a bum shoulder, but never missed a game. He's a lunch pale type of guy and that's bc he's been underestimated all of his career bc ppl would talk more about his future as a broadcaster than they would about his future as a football player.

He's had a solid 4 years at UGA. But I'm a Lockett fan too. You throw Lockett in the slot and you have yourself a true weapon. The guy is fearless.

Dorsett and Lockett are my top choices. Dorsett being the first. I went back and watched some of his games and i shortchanged him. He is a very capable blocker and has great ball skills. Meaning he tracks the ball in the air at an elite level. I would take him in the second if Stephone Anthony isn't available.

I expect us to go Edge rusher/ILB/ and either S or OG in 1st 3 rounds.....if any of the WRers you mention are still there in round 4-5 (I especially like Conley, a very intelligent high character young man) then sure, grab them, but otherwise, we need to stay focused on our true biggest needs, and WR is not an immediate need at all, we can address it in 2016 draft.
