Fisher

Warmack

These are the guys I have absolutely no qualms getting. There are a lot of other guys who I'm kinda 50-50 about.

Yes, and I realise I'm in the minority here. Take the top WR's in the NFL today and take a look at how they were coming out of college, you'll notice some key traits:

1. Production

This is huge. It's VERY rare for a top WR not to have posted a 1000 yard season in college. There are exceptions, but man, you gotta dig for them. These exceptions (like Colston and Hartline) weren't even first round picks; they fell for a reason. This is the reason I'm against drafting Cordarelle Patterson.

2. Adequate athlete

I don't need you to run a 4.3, just be fast enough to get separation on film. If they're not super quick, height/bulk is an important factor. Again, you don't need to be superman, but it's good to be over 6 foot tall without being a twig.

3. Natural hands

This is obvious enough.

4. Smart enough to run routes

You can prove this to me in different ways. It's obvious that you can run routes if you show it on tape, but if you played in a simple offence, you need to look smart in your interviews/wonderlick.

5. Don't be a douchebag

Not rocket science.

When it comes to drafting a WR for me, it's not about being amazing at any one of these things, but being well-rounded. Patton ticks all the boxes. I also like Allen as a prospect, but his injury worries me.
