Which is YOUR top WR in the draft?

Which is YOUR top WR in the draft?

Jeudy or Lamb? I think it's a no-brainer, Jeudy by a mile, Lamb could be the next JJ Stokes.

You can say that about every single prospect to ever enter the draft.

Jeudy. He's the purest route runner in the draft. Seems like he's got a high football IQ and is a student of the game. I don't think Jimmy G's strength is going thru all his progressions (yet). So knowing a receiver will be in a certain spot at a certain time is huge. Sure Ruggs is more of a game breaker and his speed is breathtaking but I'll take JJ's precision all day long!

Agreed on the route running. He also gives you so many different looks with his releases. It gives me more confidence about his projection to the next level seeing how easily he beats press coverage.

Mind sharing why you don't agree ??

or you just one of the fans who AGREES AND DO CARTWHEELS whenever the FO makes a move??

If you actually read my posts you would understand that's certainly not the case. I find myself arguing against the grain more than following the herd. See Soloman Thomas and not starting Mostert 2 years ago for examples.

As far as your post... I wouldn't even know where to begin. Are those ratings you posted next to their names? Also I don't agree with one comparison you made. Not one.

I don't recall the FO making a move on the draft yet?

GRRRR... the minute you mentioned Mostert is the moment I saw myself wondering why he wasn't being used in the SUPER BOWL !!!!

DAMNN YOUUUU KYLEEEEE !!! DAMMMNNN YOUUUU !!!



Got Nothin but Love for You Aqua !!!

Lamb was originally my favorite of the bunch......but....8 hours of youtube later.... I really am leaning Ruggs.

The primary reason why is his slant routs. He create fantastic separation at flanker and from the slot. Watch any of the 3 Bama WRs and their highlight reels, and you can quickly figure out which WR is Ruggs he simply gets open. Think of all the contested passes Jimmy G thew this year, this is one guy who at least from slot and flanker could give Jimmy G a clean target.

He could play Split end a bit like Alvin Harper or you could pull him off the LOS and motion the hell out of him at Flanker and his release issue can be masked as he develops in to an experienced NFL WR. i think he could do any of the 3 (SE, Flanker, slot) for the 49ers eventually, i think only SE will take time, but that is pretty common for all young WRs.
Unlike the traditional burner, his willingness to block, his oversized mitts and field awareness seem to lend him some dependability that i think will transition into the 49er offense.

Plus, he is just a good dude. I like the dudes mentality, i think he has 49er written allover him.

I couldn't agree more with your post!!! Especially the bold, just like Deebo, Ruggs also loss someone close to him that makes him have that drive and humbleness. I really like Jeudy a lot, but like you said, Ruggs just has 49er written all over him.

Not a bad comparison - Peoples-Jones is a more explosive athlete and is bigger with much longer arms (33 1/2" vs. 31 5/8"). Godwin is faster Peoples-Jones wasn't productive in college while Godwin was. Peoples-Jones will be interesting to watch at the next level.
H. Ruggs: = Ridley at best and Ginn at worst
Ridley comparison makes no sense. Jeudy is far more like Ridley. Tyreek Hill at best (3" taller, much bigger hands, but maybe not as quick)
C. Claypool: ~98 = Demaryius Thomas
Fair comparison, but I don't think he has the ball skills Thomas had. Not great at tracking deep balls and not as good as a jump ball threat as you'd expect given the size. He is a straight-line athlete like Thomas though.
D. Mims: 94.6 = Julio at best and Mike Evans at worst
Similar measurables to Julio Jones at best although Jones was 13 pounds heavier and participated in the combine with a fracture in his foot that required surgery. Jones has much better ball skills and is far more physical. Evans comparison doesn't make sense and Mike Evans is definitely not Mimis' floor - Evans has freakish size and length for the position at 6'5 231 with 35 1/8" arms. He's also a top 5 WR in the league. If Mims was going to be Mike Evans at worst, he'd be a top 5 pick. He's a little like DJ Chark. Chark was a year younger coming out and a little faster, but not quite as big. Mims could be a good deep threat with his size and speed.
J. Reagor: 93.3 = Golden Tate
Like the comparison - more explosive than Tate
B. Aiyuk: 89.4 = Antonio Brown
NFL.com compares him to Robert Woods which fits better - similar build, athlete, RAC ability.
J. Jefferson: 81.8 = Michael Thomas at best
C. Lamb: 70.5 = Devante Adams
J. Jeudy: 21.8 = AJ Green

Got partway through - some good comparisons, some questionable ones (Henry Ruggs and Calvin Ridley, Denzel Mims and Mike Evans).
