In Topic: The Top Tier WRs according to Cosell

Yesterday, 08:24 PM

I must be missing something with Breshad, every time I watch him on tape I see him taking advantage of soft zone coverage and bad DB placement, but he does not actively get open often in man coverage, and most his catches off of man are once again because of bad DB placement. He for sure is excellent at taking the underneath route and running it up field, and give him credit for that, however, he is going to be overdrafted for size and speed as opposed to actual production. Another thing that concerns me is how he did last season against Missouri, Connecticut, and Penn state last season. In no way shape or form would I even give a thought to putting him above the top three receivers in the draft, and I think you take him on his potential, and even that is a pretty big risk. Can he be dominate? Sure, he absolutely has freakish size and speed, but he is not going to develop into a Dez Bryant, Calvin Johnson, AJ Green type of guy.

 

Kevin White > Amari Cooper > Devante Parker > Agholor > Perriman = Strong

 

Just my opinion though.

AJ Jenkins and Anthony Gonzalez had no impact on either of their Super Bowl teams.

 

So, you give me 4 teams over a stretch of 9 seasons (18 Super Bowl teams total)? And only 2 winning Super Bowl teams of the past 9? Are you trying to prove my point?

 

To top it off, you made it known that Super Bowl teams rarely draft their 2 starting WRs in the 1st round, and the team that did that had 1 WR for 9 seasons and the other for 5 seasons before reaching the Super Bowl.

 

We all know the Colts loaded up on offensive talent and failed to make it. They had to switch to loading up on defense with the likes of Bob Sanders and Dwight Freeney before they were a serious threat. Remember all the times Manning got blown out in the playoffs? Including the Broncos in the Super Bowl, because they had no serious defensive talent they were feeding their team from the draft.

 

Teams spend their 1st round draft picks on defensive talent, and the occasional QB/OT, if they want to consistently be a contender for the Super Bowl.

 

Defense and Coaching win championships; not offense. The only thing offense is good for is putting up points on the bad teams and eating up clock to allow the defense to be fresh for the playoffs.

 

 

You clearly stated

 

"Super Bowl teams do not waste their 1st round picks on WRs."

 

That statement was false, I could care less about the overall impact of said wrs or what year they were drafted.

lol the Patriots have been one of the worst drafting teams in the league


They trade down eight times a round every year and the media coos and squeals about what a genius Bill Belichick is and then all those players wash out of the league within three years time

 

 

Nate Solder

Donta Hightower

Chandler Jones

Rob Gronkowski 

Devin McCourty 

Julian Edelman

Sebastian Volmer

Jerod Mayo

Jamie Collins

 

Just to name a few drafted since 2009, but okay.


In Topic: If Randy Gregory is available at # 25 ....

I would poo myself if we were able to pick him. Gregory - KK - Star - CJ? Holy poo. Though, I have reservations about picking a player in the first who will be almost exclusive to passing situations IE Aldon Smith.
