I'm willing to say they gaffed on the pick. If you pick a guy especially a receiver in the 1st round and he doesn't catch a ball his entire 1st year and went without injury, that's a bad pick. I will still give him a chance, though. Next season I have to see something from him. I personally don't understand the pick when you look at all the smallish receivers we had already. We need a big body speedster that can stretch the field.
We need to wait for next year, but you are right--the Jenkins pick is not looking good.
Our passing game needs serious help. We need wide receivers who are productive, who get open, who catch the ball, and who move the chains.
I give a rats ass if they are big bodied or smurfs.
When I hear the calls for big bodied wide outs, I think of Rashaun Woods--and I get nauseous.
Fast would be nice, but Ted Ginn is fast, so it is clear that fast alone is not sufficient.
