Re: Position Breakdown: Wide Receiver

marques colston is a great player on any team but devery henderson, lance moore, and robert meachem arent really anything but slot receivers right now.....

i wouldnt be surprised to see us draft a WR in the 3rd or 4th round

Re: Position Breakdown: Wide Receiver

I think with Drew our receivers can be called elite. He doesn't play favorites, he throws to the open receiver. I think if we had any bigger named receivers they may complain about the fewer number of chances. The group we have seem to accept this role so I wouldn't change it at the moment.

Re: Position Breakdown: Wide Receiver

Henderson has really become a good reciever in the past couple of years & Moore is a fantastic possession receiver (see SB conversion)

COlston is just fantastic. Meechum (book is out but looks good!)

So I think we look pretty good!!

Re: Position Breakdown: Wide Receiver

As a group they're among the leauges elite. If we had a QB who didn't spread it around as much then we would know how they would rank against WRs on teams that has the majority of passes going to 1-3 guys.

Re: Position Breakdown: Wide Receiver

once again

Dorin Dickerson, Pittsburgh

TE/FB/RB/WR

Put him in motion and you have a great mismatch.

Height: 6-1. Weight: 226
Combine 40 Time: 4.40.
Benchx225: 24. Vertical: 43. Arm: 34

there i have talked myself into our #1 target in the draft. One player that can help at 3 positions. cool wonder if he can lb too? wait he did that for a year at Pitt also. Safety?

Re: Position Breakdown: Wide Receiver

I believe that this is our deepest position. Every one of those players have made some great catches from Drew this year. This could be our best place to open negotiations for a trade to cover a position of need. Our wide receivers coach Curtis Johnson has done an excellent job of making receivers run the right route and catch the ball.
Also, if Adrian Aarington could stay healthy he could be very good too.
