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?
No, but those guys are 1st rd picks, Bailey will go in the 3rd at the latest. Welker is a priority FA.
After drafting a WR high 1-2nd rd. I just think Rodgers would be worth a look in the 6-7th rd.
