Taking a look at college football's best WR.

83 posts in this topic

So, with Blackmon having a slower 40 time, it means you are hesitant to take him too, correct?

I really don't think any of these WRs are can't miss prospects to be honest. If we wanted a cant miss guy at wide out we missed that boat when we passed on A.J. Green. All three of the big WR have issues this year, however the depth at WR this year may not be too shabby....

So either admit he's perfect or you're biased?

Awesome, a KT clone without the race card.

Not sure where you are coming from.

You've gotta understand that as much as I love the 'Cocks, I am first and foremost a Carolina Panther fan by a large, large margin.

I wouldn't want us to draft a player because of personal biases if I felt another player was better, and would help the Panthers a lot more.

You have seen me clamoring for another CB to replace Munnerlyn have you not?

I want us to start preparing a WR of the future this offseason, and I think Jeffery is the best available.

As I said, I take Floyd over Blackmon, but I challenge you to watch Jeffery play before coming to a final decision.

Just watched a highlight reel that was 5 minutes long wasn't that good. So he finds soft spots in college zones, not that easy in the NFL. His speed looks average so he better be physical, but again it's a new ballgame in the NFL when proven DB's jam you at the line and your athletic ability isn't enough anymore.

I did see Malcolm Floyd put a crappy ND QB on his back this past weekend and beat every coverage they threw at him. That, honestly, was impressive.

I WAS a super homer for Green. He's from my hometown and a personal acquaintance of mine. I toted that Green was a can't miss prospect and there was gonna be nobody else like him for some time.

I was right about Green being a can't miss prospect-but wrong in that noone else would come close to him for a while- Alshon has just blown my mind, and he is close to AJ level in my mind-not there yet-but another great season could put him there I feel. The guy just does everything great.

I still don't see cant miss with any of these guys. You cant draft a guy who isn't a cant miss prospect as high as we're probably going to be picking....

A.J. has the top end speed though, that's something that can't be taught. You either have it or you don't, and imo Alshon doesn't. I honestly think we should go CB in round one next year and wait till 2013 to get an elite WR, that is if Gettis doesn't develop into one....

That seems pretty opinionated to me. For starters, 4.4 certainly isn't slow. But it seems like you are just discrediting all his positives and saying that they won't translate based on nothing. You could say that about any player. The fact that you have to discredit 3 or 4 things in one post to say they won't translate shows just how complete he is..

And good luck jamming a 6'4" strong Receiver at the line in the modern NFL where touching a WR is enough to warrant a penalty with some officiating crews..

I didn't see 4.4 in those clips, couldn't care less about the dash.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
