Default What's your rankings of WRs in this draft class?

Do you have a list, from one to ten (or one to five, whatever) of the receivers in this draft class?

I'm thinking we may give points to all the names on all the lists (top choice gets ten points, second choice gets nine points, and so on.)

We can then tally (and update the scores) and come up with a final ranking maybe a week before the draft.

Since I'm only just starting, I'd like to ask everybody else who has a list to put it up.

Thanks!

Might be easier if you post it as poll question, that way it automatically tabulates itself.

Hill is a former Ga. state sprint champ, who is 6'4 205 is a great blocker but has questionable hands. RD3-5 would be a steal. IMHO

Heh. As a Georgia Tech fan I'd say that's quite the understatement.

Hill makes Jacoby look like Larry Fitzgerald.

Agreed

But it's not like Hill had Manning as his QB.

Default Re: What's your rankings of WRs in this draft class?

  1. Justin Blackmon- Top 5 selection, blue chip talent
  2. Michael Floyd- Ability to start immediately & produce
  3. Alshon Jeffery- Big, tall red-zone target who wins jump balls
  4. Kendall Wright- Pro ready, faster & stronger than expected
  5. Mohamed Sanu- He is more your slot, possession receiver with RB skills
  6. Juron Criner- Big Body, strong hands who will be productive early on
  7. Marvin Jones- After Blackmon could be playmaker of group
  8. Nick Toon- long, lean & fast can stretch the field, good genes
  9. Ryan Broyles- All around competitive coming off acl surgery
  10. Brian Quick- Another exciting big body, developmental, worth the wait

Anybody check out Joe Adams, Arkansas WR, in Saturdays Senior Bowl ?
OK he's small, but is he ever fast and he's got good hands plus he's an excellent punt-returner. Kinda reminds me of Desean Jackson, Phillys receiver.

With so many WR's in this draft I can see Texans trading back for an extra 2nd rounder.

Identical to my list in terms of talent and ability ..... Only real question on this group pre-combine is Floyd who may or may not drop due to off field issues and Broyles injury concerns - Should he perform at the combine he could move back up - whats the timetable on his recovery ?!

Default Re: What's your rankings of WRs in this draft class?

BL,
Your list is a very good list. I'm interested to know what other draftniks top 5-10 look like.

Your list consists of young Hines Ward and Greg Jennings type WR's.

My List has Jennings/Antonio Brown type WR's. I think one way to quickly improve the ST's is to draft a TY Hilton/Joe Adams/Demps type slot WR that can play outside somme too.

Hopefully Floyd or Jeffrey are there late in the 1st. In the 3rd 4th rd taking a White/Hilton/Adams would be playing with house money. It would take the biggest weakness and turn it into a possible strength.

I'm going to put out a Texans post combine mock soon. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Thats what Im hoping for as well .... Either of those guys would be a major upgrade at the #2 WR spot.

The only question I have is would the Texans front office take Floyd with his off field issues .... we have a WR On the roster with a history of DUI tho I think that guy (J.Jones) is gone as a cap casualty , especially if the team can find a serious upgrade in the draft.

St.Louis @ 2 may
Cleveland @ 4 or 22
I could see Jax taking one at 7 depending upon how they rate them and who's available.
Philly might @ 15 depending on the status of DeSean Jackson in FA.

Other than that I dont see a team with a real dire need at WR and I doubt all of those teams take one .... Then again maybe a team not listed thinks they find value at the position and un-expectedly takes one.


I would be real tempted to trade up for one of the top 3 - Justin Blackmon,
Michael Floyd or Alshon Jeffery in the mid teens should they still be on the board.

Jets, Jags, Bears, Cinci, Cleveland, Rams, (Tradeback and lose Kalil, take Blackmon), Redskins, Patriots (good value at end of the round), and later (like second round) Panthers, Redskins, Cardinals, Steelers, Broncos.

Basically alot of teams will be looking to add a WR this draft with so many quality ones. I really hope the Texans don't wait to long to get one (or two) that fit

Would any of those teams have interest in DeSean Jackson; any rumors or semi-serious possibility?

Similar to DeSean Jackson, what kind of receivers do those teams lose that requires replacement/upgrade?

Any of those FAs have a certain "rapport" with another team through coaches or players that may lead them to move to another team with need?

Is receiver their primary need (the teams that you listed) in the first round?
