Do you really have to be big to be a legitimate deep threat wide out?
How big is D Jackson?
I remember one play in the Seattle game where Patton got mugged.
Are you saying that Bruce Ellington is too slow or too small to be an effective deep threat?
If you are, please explain your reasoning.
The point is if you are not that fast then you better be big. Or as Rex Ryan says, if you have fast big and fast small, give me fast big. That's the general idea of where I am coming from.
DeSean Jackson is not big, but amongst the top deep threat wideouts, how many are that size as opposed to Josh Gordon, Calvin Johnson, Alshon Jeffrey, Brandon Marshall, Julio Jones, etc. ?
As for Bruce Ellington, he is known more as a slot receiver. Sure, he can play deep, but is he the intended definitive answer to our deep threat need ? I don't know, we shall have to see about that.
