I honestly didn't watch Welker at Tech, but going by NFL Draft Scout, he was a tad under 5'9 but weighed 195lbs.
Zack is about 6'0 but only weighs 172.
Welker carried his weight well in the 2 punt returns from the college day still available on YouTube.
The only thing I know is that when the Dolphins didn't seem to want him anymore, I wanted him because of his physical play. You've got to be able to do that when you're a shorter guy; like Kendall Wright or Stedmon Bailey.
Why do I like Bailey more than Rogers?
Because he plays big and never shied from contact.
He wins against bigger and taller DB; Rogers lost big time.
Is he worth a sixth?
Probably, but not until I bring him in for a work-out so he can show me what I'd like to see.
Right now, on tapes, I don't see it.
It doesn't matter how quick you are if they can jam you easily at the line.
Can you say the same thing with Welker, Wright, Bailey, or Austin?
