By the numbers: the NFL could be sleeping on Watson’s receivers

He is? Exactly what do you consider "doing very well"? With the Patriots, he had 21 catches and 42 runs. Last year with the Bears, in 16 games, he had 11 catches and 17 runs. Exactly what is he doing well?
All I know is my Bear friends want them to re-sign him.

Wow. I guess to each, their own. Even this year, Patterson only has one game where he had more than 4 YPC. Shoot, Alfred Blue could put up those numbers.

I remember the 2013 draft buzz around Hopkins, Patterson, Tavon Austin and Justin Hunter. Today, Hopkins has more receiving yards than all of them combined.

It sucked Rick could only evaluate 1st round talent.

Better than what we've had the last couple of years... but it sucked Rick could only evaluate 1st round talent..

& Undrafted guys like Bouye & Arian.

& 3rd rounders like Ben Jones & Brandon Brooks

& sixth rounders like Christian Covington

& 5th rounders like Dj Reader

I'm sorry, Ben Jones was a 4th round pick.

Pretty skimpy list for 10+ years

Don't forget identifying guys buried on other teams like Chris Myers, Kevin Walter, Mike Briesel....

And also bringing in guys like Antonio Smith,Jonathan Joseph and Danieal Manning in free agency.

Only Briesel picked by Smith as an UDFA
I said buried on other teams so yeah he was an udfa.

But really, whether it be udfa, mid round picks or cheap fa pickups...accumulating talent without giving up a bunch of capitol is a very valuable thing.

Short list, low bar but Rick Smith has been the best GM in the teams history.

Read through the thread and I still don't know if the NFL is sleeping on Watson's receivers but after watching the first four games I am relatively certain Watson's receivers have been sleeping during NFL games.
I'm think by our second series Dashaun bounces one off a receivers head, it bounces into his hands and goes for TD. I'm hopeful the hands it bounces into are a Texan.
