There is no way Benjamin is going to turn into an Alshon Jeffery type player. Benjamin is way too over rated.

You may be right, but to be fair the same was said about Alshon a few years ago.

That's your opinion. Good for you.

Or

Did you just came back from the future and know how everything is going to play out in the NFL for the next couple of years?

Huge difference between Benjamin and Jeffery. Jeffery was a far more reliable receiver, a better route runner, with better hands overall. Benjamin is just a raw project at this point, big and fast, lacking as a route runner with iffy hands.


Wilson played in a pro-style offense at Wisconsin, as opposed to Manziel running around and playing YOLO ball. In terms of work ethic, I don't know that there's any comparison, Wilson was all business all the time, a guy who teammates complained rarely went out and partied, meanwhile Manziel was going YOLO. I doubt that Manziel has the mentality needed to succeed in the NFL but only time will tell, however coming out of the draft, Wilson was far more ready to step in as an NFL starting QB from day 1.

Can't teach size.
Mike Davis = Mike Wallace with a more rounded game (can win deep, short, and intermediate) . From the clips I watched he seem to have the elusiveness an speed to give the Seahawk DB's trouble.

Jameis "squints" Winston isn't in this draft.
Jordan Matthews, Vandy = Jordy Nelson
Brandin Cooks, Oregon State = Antonio Brown
Blake Bottles, UCF = Tony Romo
Jarvis Landry, LSU = Donald Driver
Davante Adams, Fresno = Michael Crabtree
Brett Smith, Wyoming = Alex Smith (with more speed, less size)
Jared Abbrederis is a slightly quicker version of Brian Hartline.
Johnny Manziel - Jeff Garcia
Jordan Matthews - James Jones
Jarvis Landry - Anquan Boldin
Brandin Cooks - Steve Smith
Darqueze Dennard - Darrel Revis
Justin Gilbert - Patrick Peterson
Aaron Murray= Alex Smith
Sammy Watkins= faster Crabtree
Justin Gilbert= Pat Peterson
Johnny Manziel= Russel Wilson/Brett Favre
Mike Evans= David Boston
Teddy Bridgewater= Aaron Rodgers
Anthony Barr= Aaron Curry

Ha, I can definitely see the Evan /Boston comparison.
