Little speedy recievers who could possibly play PR/KR

Well after seeing Jackson I'm pretty jealous. I know that a few of these types of guys were found last year in the mid rounds. Guys like Mike Wallace, Mike Thomas, and Johnny Knox. We need a guy like that who can stretch the field and run by people. At the same time it'd be pretty dumb for us to waste a 1st rounder on that type of guy and I don't think there are any in the top of the draft anyway. That said, maybe later on?

I know OTC has said he likes Marcus Easley as a reciever who had some good games. I'm looking at stats and this guy Tim Brown from Rutgers is only 5'8'' but he had a pretty good year, is he fast enough? Who are some other guys that can get open deep?

Nice list OTC. We really need a guy to take care of this position for us.
How about Trindon Holiday from LSU? Isn't he a senior this year?

Looks good to me. What round is he projected to go in? How much experience does he have fielding kicks and punts?

Round 2
He is more then capable of being a good return guy
He also would add a deep threat WR due to his speed....very very fast!!

Roscoe Parrish.
Wait a year for one of the Rodgers Bros from Oregon State!

Watch them tonight on ESPN at 5

PURE speed
Brandon Williams is available -- oops, this should go in Free Agents.

Holiday is a senior, and he's my not-quite-sleeper. He's super small (5'5", 160), but is one of the fastest players in all of college football (not to mention, one of the best punt returners). You could also play him 3-4 snaps a game at slot WR to get some speed on the field. Some people think he's too small, but I think it works to his advantage (especially on kickoffs since he gets lost in the mix, then makes one move and he's gone):


I also like Rutgers Tim Brown, and to a lesser extent, Florida's Brandon James and SMU's Emmanuel Sanders (5'11", 180). For a not-so-small but exceptional special teams WR who could end up being a bigger version of Wes Welker, Jordan Shipley is the guy.

I like what I've heard/read about Sanders, he sounds like he might be the guy. I've seen Shipley play a ton and he'd be decent but I'm not sure what pick we'd spend on him. Tim Brown has good states but I didn't watch Rutgers play that much this year, is he the speed guy we need to stretch the field?
