Of all the Wide receiver prospects.

Which are the prospects with the best hands? Grabbing a prospect with great hands seems to be what we need. Besides speed and Catch radius. Having a sure handed wide out is essential. What is the consensus as far as which wide receivers catch everything thrown at them?

 

From what I have been reading here and there.

 

Sammy Watkins

Mike Evans

Brandin Cooks

Davante Adams

Jarvis Landry

Cody Latimer

Jordan Matthews

Allen Robinson

Devin Street

(Suggest more if you could please.)

 

 

Here's some drop percentages.

 

Martavis Bryant Clemson 12.50%
Marquise Lee Southern California 12.31%
L'Damian Washington Missouri 12.07%
Donte Moncrief Ole Miss 11.11%
Kelvin Benjamin Florida State 9.68%
Paul Richardson Colorado 8.89%
Jalen Saunders Oklahoma 7.94%
Jordan Matthews Vanderbilt 7.69%
Odell Beckham Jr. LSU 6.45%
Allen Robinson Penn State 5.43%
Brandin Cooks Oregon State 4.69%
Sammy Watkins Clemson 4.49%
Mike Evans Texas A&M 4.29%
Jarvis Landry LSU 2.50%

 

The first two are out of the question, we all know they will not fall to us and we aren't going to trade up either. 

 

The rest? I believe we have a legitimate shot at drafting.  Respectively in the first and second round.

 

What other prospects have sure hands in this draft that can be selected in later rounds?

Devin Street

 

Devin Street is one of the best pass-catchers in the draft. He has absolutely fantastic hands and an uncanny ability to spear the ball at its' highest point. Instead of trying to catch with his chest, he prefers to use his strong hands to tear the ball out of the air, or out of cornerbacks' hands. He has great timing and great coordination, which allows him to win jump balls regularly and adjust to mis-throws.

Who would I like in the second?

 

Kelvin Benjamin.  He serves two purposes. He is as big as a TE but can play outside like a WR.

I disagree that we need guys with good hands. We've got Avant and Cotchery for that. We need big play ability with speed or size. Benjamin, Lee or Cooks are my favorites for our pick at 28.

I think it is highly unlikely that Cooks or Odell Beckham are available when we pick at 28. If any of the top WRs fall, I have a feeling the Saints will scoop them up one pick ahead of us.

So before we draft 4 WRs and 4 tackles would have left the board? That's insane. I think we'll have the choice among some good WRs.

Yup there are tons of WR needy teams ahead of us and plenty of talent at the position to be taken by them. There will be some good receivers but the top 4 will likely be off the board at 28.

Yeah, Avant and Cotchery aren't going to be here for the long term. Might as well pick up guys with hands that grow with Cam.

It will likely depend on whether there is a run on them before we pick.  Each year it seems that there is a run on some position in the draft and teams are fearful that their guy won't be there in the second and reach for him in the first. Wide receiver could easily be that position this year.

That may be the case with Benjamin this year. A couple early mocks had him going to Seattle at #32 so he may not make it to the second. He could go 27 or 28 if he's there. Much like Cam the measurables would be hard to pass up. He's a Hog Mollie WR. We've never had a player at that position with that potential on this team. That's why I'd take a chance. Thats also why I'm not a GM.
