SDN you're my boy and all, but I can't back you up on this one. I get it that he had a disappointing 40, but he has plenty of tape to back up his speed ON THE FIELD VS COMPETITION. Even if you wanted to knock him, you're putting him down in the 3rd round level, that's pretty much saying the guy's gonna bust when you compare your ranking to the average ranking he currently has. He KILLED the rest of the drills. IMO you're putting too much weight on his 40, it matters, but not as much as you're making it out to be.
Nevermind the fact that I expect him to run it again at this pro day and do better
I think his very quick reciever that projects as a slot reciever because of his lack of straight line speed. He has great quickiness, agility, and change of direction. I put him as a 3rd rounder. You typically don't see slot recievers going in the 1st or 2nd.
I've laid out my case, I listed every WR that had good year. Why do you guys dismiss that so much? I'm being objective about it, and objectively speaking the only WRs that ran a similar 40 time were in the 220lbs range and are big physical WRs. How can you guys just completely ignore that?
Finally, for all you guys saying b******t that I haven't watched the guy (I have), how many of you have watched T.Y. Hilton or Chris Givens?
Chris Givens is just as quick and athletic as Kendall and can match Kendall in any department plus he has better straight line speed. You put Chris Givens with RG3, and he would have put up even better numbers in college.
IMO, you guys are putting Kendall Wright above Chris Givens because Wright had way more hype entering the draft with all the attention on RG3 and Givens is a junior who was a relative unknown unless you follow the ACC.
I feel pretty confident my top 5 will go before Wright. Now maybe Wright is the 6th WR off the board, but I don't think dropping him from 6th to 9th is some major deal. I put Streeter above him because of Streeter's potential. AJ Jenkins biggest flaw is he played in Illinois offense, please tell me Kendall Wright lovers whats wrong with AJ Jenkins' game?
Marvin Jones is probably a reach to put over Kendall Wright, but since the end of the season Marvin Jones has put on the most impressive show out of any WR. He has looked excellent as a route runner, displayed great hands, had a terrific combine.
