Two 2014 Recievers not named Lee or Watkins

Recommended Posts

Honestly Evans is my hand-picked replacement for Lafell.

Evans should be the replacement for Smitty in the long run. Anyone could replace LaFail easily.

I've just had a look at what game-tape I could find for Greene. My major concern would be the limited time he faces press coverage. This, and route running, are normally the biggest reasons WRs fail in the NFL. His route running seems ok, but he does seem to run an extraordinary number of 9-yard curls. I think he would be a solid WR but I don't think he has a huge amount of upside. If he's there in the later rounds (6 or 7) or as a UDFA then it is definitely worth a shot. But players like Mike Davis will likely still be there in the 4th.

Similar to Greene in many ways, just possesses more upside. Would work well as a slot receiver at the next level.

Evans has to be an upgrade for Lafell, we will need another receiver to replace Smith. As we have showed over the past few years, having just one top receiver doesn't do that much, we really need two. What do you think about maybe going after Amari Cooper in the 1st round of 2015. That will likely be the first draft after Smith retires. His draft stock is falling because of a foot injury and it won't be helped next year with a new QB.

I would love, I mean Cam would love having Evans and Cooper to throw to. That would be incredible!

If by then we're in a position to trade up for Amari, I'm all in. I know he's having a bad season this year, but I still believe that Cooper is the real deal.

I think Greene upside is higher because of his speed and Yac ability. I do not think Davis is as fast or quick twitched as Greene. Greene does run more then curls, I have seen him score on post, outs, and slants numerous times. I do wonder how he will handle press man, because he hardly sees this coverage because of his deep speed. He can be a body catcher at times, but is very willing to go over the middle.

I know this thread is not about Watkins, but his route running is some of the best that I have seen in a while and hardly gets mentioned. He understands the stems and how to break DBs down getting in out of his breaks with speed and confidence. He changes speed really well, and doesn't show the route before he breaks.

I know he hasn't done much this year, but Brandon Coleman is a guy who I hope we give a look. Reminds me so much of Demaryius Thomas...

Brandon Coleman has disappeared in the games I have seen this year. he started out hot, but has been mia as of lately. some could be because of QB play, but still.

It's mostly QB play, just like Lee when he's been out there. My biggest concern with Coleman is does he have the vertical speed to stretch a defense.

Evans reminds me of Alshon Jefferies.  Big with good hands but not a lot of speed, seemingly.  If Even runs a sub 4.5 though I'd be all over him. 

 

There seems to be a lot of good WR's in the draft.

Definitely. I got a lot of love for Coleman.

I think he's going to be a "fine" NFL receiver though. Some guys just are.
