Default WR Class

before the Combine this was my WR ranking:

1.a Blackmon
1.b Floyd
2 - Wright
3 - Jeffery
4 - Sanu
5 - Randle

after the combine

1 - Floyd
2 - Blackmon
3 - Wright
4 - Randle
5 - Jeffery

I think i over hyped sanu a bit.
i had him as a potential #1 WR but i think he ends up being a possession reciever

D. Jones has fallen
C. Givens posted poor numbers in the combine and has fallen

Wright didn't post the athletic numbers you would like but he has his pro day to work on that

Jeffery ... well we all know what happened to him


pretty much WR doesn't look like the great class we thought it was a couple of months ago

I think it's:

1 - Floyd
2 - Blackmon
3 - Wright

Then everybody else.

In other words if Texans can't land one of them trade down or choose another position of value.

Default Re: WR Class

I think Floyd and Blackmon are head and shoulders above the rest.

I like Wright, but I would prefer Sanu, McNutt, or Streeter in the second.

Default Re: WR Class

I think it would be wise to use the combine as only a tool of information. My focus is more on what I observed during games and what people I trust say about players. I agree with Beerlover in seeking trade down or more than likely a re-focus on position for first round.

Great point. Most people go overboard with all the combine stuff. It's a great tool, but it isn't the only tool.

the combine wasn't a major impact on my rankings its more a way of showing a time frame of the scouting process.

Toon & Jeffrey way down there? Interested to here your thoughts on these 2 as i've said in other threads i think toon is going to be the steal of this WR class as i see very little difference between He and Floyd.

Default Re: WR Class

I don't see us addressing the WR need until the third or fourth round unless someone drops and is a prospect we cant pass up. I see going BPA, but as Smith has said some are rated equally and then they hedge toward a position they feel could use improvement or depth. If that scenario arises, I see DB and OL as the hypothetical positions of need that take precedent over WR, and if Mario leaves then add OLB to that list.

To me, Toon just looks like a guy. I like that he has great bloodlines and he doesn't mind blocking. But other than that he is average. Nothing really stands out to me. I think he will stick around the league for a long time, but I don't see him ever becoming a star.

I plain don't like Jeffrey. He strikes me as the kind of guy who has gotten by his whole life because of his athletic gifts. Well, everybody in the NFL is physically gifted. Will he put in the work to get better? I'm skeptical, and I've been seeing that other teams are as well based on his interviews. I think he is an exact replica of Mike Williams, who came out of USC and was the #10 pick in the 05' draft. Williams isn't an awful player, but I'll pass on a 1st round pick who has 5 TDs in six seasons.

Default Re: WR Class

Floyd is far and away the best WR in the draft this year, IMO. Would love to get him, but it's not happening. I could live with a guy like McNutt or Sanu in the 2nd though.

Why has all the air run out of the Blackmon balloon lately? Most of the big draft guys are starting to knock him too.

towards the end of the interview, mcnair was asked how where and what kind of WR houston will target.

He responded with in the draft and put a lot of emphasis on speed.
Said the guys in FA a similar to what we have already and again we need more speed.
