A lot of stud college WR's can't translate to the NFL. I just don't see him as a special sort of prospect.

how and why is Keenan Allen your #5 WR? and why cant you see Rogers translating to the NFL? has the size, route running skills, physicality, and speed to be a stud WR. and so does Allen.

About the only weakness I can see in Rodgers is he isnt blazing fast. He has everything else you look for.

Size, hands, route running, physicality ect.

Same with Allen.

Two most NFL ready polished WRs in the draft.

I admit my WR rankings are pretty different than most rankings you'll see. I'm just not as big a fan of this class as some are. I see a lot of average prospects all grouped together. The only potential #1 NFL WR's I see are Patterson and Patton. Williams I see as more of a #2 and Bailey as a potentially dangerous slot receiver. Allen is a borderline #1/#2, IMO.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
