View Full Version : Our WR draft of 2008

Ok, so why are our three guys we drafted in round 2 last year so ineffective? Other teams can get production for their highly rated pass catchers so why can't we?

Why have Kelly, Thomas and Davis done nothing in a year and a half? We see Maclin, Harvin, Jackson all impressing in their rookie years but our guys...we just make excuses for them...blah, blah, sometimes it takes 2 or 3 years for rookies to pick up systems, adjust to NFL blah, blah, etc.

I say play Marko Mitchell, our best receiver in preseason.

You can answer this in 3 words :-

Not Enough Speed

Terrible draft in hindsight although there were comments at the time about their size and lack of speed

Thomas is an athlete who in the NFL struggles to get the separation from corners who are superior athletes to what he faced in college.

Kelly lacks the speed to get separation and also has a bad set of knees.

I like the few flashes I've seen of Fred Davis but with Cooley, he was always a waste of a pick unless they go double tight end a lot more often.

In other words, well done Vinny C
