Combine WRs by projected position, with NFL.com's rating and link

Recommended Posts

Read all of the WR reviews on NFL.com's new combine list, so decided to parse it by projected position and post. I've linked the profile to the prospect name for those that would like to read up on specific guys. They did a better job this year on the write ups IMO.

 

The red are guys I like. I know we're likely not taking a WR in R1, so the lower graded reds are the guys I'd like to target in the later rounds. Some really nice prospects should be available. If you think I have slotted guys incorrectly (projected position), let me know.

 

 

NFL.com Grade / Prospect (linked to profile) / College / Height / Weight / Comp

6.86 - JERRY JEUDY - ALABAMA - 6' 1" - 192 lbs - Santonio Holmes

6.50 - LAVISKA SHENAULT JR. - COLORADO - 6' 2" - 220 lbs - Sammy Watkins / Greg Little

Surprised to see Claypool up so high.

Personally I’m not. If he was any faster he would be a clear cut 1st rounder. He’s a really great receiver and I would absolutely love to have him on the squad!

I'd love to have him too. I like him more than Funch.

Just thought he'd be in the 6.0-6.2 range.

After parsing all of them, they basically have him as the #1 pure X.

Higgins will likely end up at X, who is rated higher, and I thought Pittman would be a little above him.

NFL.com's latest 3 round mock has us taking Colin Johnson in the 3rd, and a TE at 34. I don't see us taking or TE at 34, and if we did, I don't see us taking a 6-6 WR in addition. Also, Eason at 13 LOL

Thanks. The profiles are worth a read if you time. I think they did a better job this year than in the past. While I disagree on some of the ratings, they did a pretty good job and aren't too far off. IMO, there's going to be some real gems in the mid and even late rounds. I know a lot of folks are enamored with the top 3 or 4 guys, but there's just a whole lot of quality. There will be a bunch of instant starters, and there are some very interesting prospects that are lower rated coming from bad teams/schemes/QBs that I think will be surprises.

Aiyuk comparison to Robert Woods, who is an outstanding route runner. Is Aiyuk that good of a route runner?  Pittman comparison to Courtland Sutton, I am intrigued. 

 

Gandy Golden, I feel, is going to be successful in this league. Last year, Hakeem Butler was all the craze on this forum till he went first pick in Round 4 and then got injured with the Cardinals, I am curious to see how he does this year.

I've started to dig into a few WRs. I really like what I see from Pittman. I watched ASU probably 6ish times (I like Herm and lived close to the campus for a spell), and really liked what I saw from Aiyuk.

 

As with a lot of skill position players, I think it's a matter of where the WR goes (team, scheme, QB, OL) as much as anything. It's really hard for me to pick WRs not knowing what QB will be taking snaps. If JB is still behind center, I'm looking primarily at possession Xs and slot bully. If we go to a QB that's more accurate and capable of downfield tosses, I'm more inclined to go speed X or Z (someone with adequate outside skills with speed).

Denzel Mims and Brandon Aiyuk are two WR I really like in this draft besides Justin Jefferson. Aiyuk reminds me of Chad Johnson and Mims reminds me of Chris Godwin.

I think I've talked myself into have CeeDee Lamb at the very top of my board (#2 overall after Burrow).  I will be ecstatic if we get him.  Watch this highlight reel - great hands, fast, doesn't ever want to go down.

I'll pass on watching that way I won't  be mad if we pass him

I checked his profile. He is compared to Randall Cobb, not Diggs. Perhaps Zuerlein changed it? Or was it an error?

 

You don't like Aiyuk and Reagor?

Hmmm. I literally went one by one, so not sure. I don't see another Diggs or Cobb (so not a double up or flip flop), and checked the profiles before and after to see if I goofed.... but nothing. He does add/delete/change stuff leading up and through the combine, so guessing he changed it. 

 

I like Aiyuk and Reagor, but feel they will feast or famine based on the QB they go too. I like Aiyuk better than Reagor. I like Jackson a lot who is a bit further down the Z list.

 

good eye

I know I am in the minority, but if the Colts select Lamb or Jeudy with their first slot, I will be geeked!

I think everyone would love to have Lamb or Jeudy, but simply think there are much bigger needs. I'd be fine with either of those if we addressed iDL and QB via FA, and AC comes back. But, adding either to a JB offense is like putting 1000 dollar competition tires on a Chevette.

He may not be a Chevette, but he's definitely not a sports car. Camry at best. 

 

And I think you're on record wanting a game manager QB. Any stud receiver's performance will be hampered by a game manager.

I would say that I am not as much of a fan of huge percentages of cap to the QB for long term team success. So, would I want a game manager at elite QB price? Hell no...

Cap is the least of our worries right now. QB is. 

And that's the great thing about drafting a QB. 4-5 years of value pricing.

Of course cap is the least of our worries right now....we are not paying an elite QB or pass rusher. 

 

As far as the bolded, the same can be said for a pass rusher. The reality is, successful QB's have come from across the draft board, and even beyond the draft. The idea that the Colts must use their highest pick in this draft for a QB doesn't hold water with me. I personally would rather see a solid game manager in place while the team is being fortified, until the right guy comes along. I don't see that guy in this draft, even if we had the #1 pick.

 

However, this discussion is about WR. Let's keep it about that.

The cap was in a great place when we had Luck.

 

You really don't have an opportunity for an early QB once your team is fortified.

 

On WR, I want to take at least one this year. If we have a new and more capable QB, I'd go well rounded and dynamic X. If we keep JB as starter, possession X. Both options in 3rd or later rounds. Who the QB is, definitely impacts WR strategy. I certainly wouldn't go with a deep threat WR with JB.

    • I just don't feel like anything changes come April. You know what the remaining needs are for the colts and where prospects were most likely land.   Strange. Draft calculate said it was equal value.    I mentioned Higgins can be a reach, but the draft is unpredictable. More teams go after Ts then IOL and there are a lot of good Ts in this draft. It's either Hurts or Gordon. I'm just not a fan of the other QBs and I feel we can still use his level of athletism instead of just having the QB ride the bench. Oline depth is a big need. We really don't have options if god forbid someone on the line gets hurt. Breeland is still a good option and we still have Doyle and Allie-Cox   Glad you enjoy my Mocks!
    • There is an Antonio Gates article in Yahoo Sports, says in considered signing with the Colts in 2019.  I know his age is up there, 39, will be 40 at the start of the season.  It mentioned that he has retired mindset but maybe Ballard and Rivers can sway him to give it one more year.  With the Rivers to Gates was one the best connections.  He could be a valuable 3rd receiver for the Colts and Rivers.  I think drafting a TE in the 2nd or 3rd round should be considered as well. 
    • This all reminds me of Jachai Polite last year, not being polite at all with his interviews, lol.
    • Didn’t we have this same conversation a year ago?   You put some artificial deadline on what will be your “last mock”.     Why?   You like doing them, so keep doing them.   As for this one, I’m afraid it’s my least favorite on a variety of levels.   Our pick 44 is worth 460 points.   The two picks we get back are worth just 390.   That’s way too big a gap.    Also, I don’t see the pucks as realistic or desirable.  Not sure Higgins falls to 34.   The next second puck is in the low 60’s.   Ruiz should be long gone by then. Hurts is one of my least favorite QBs.  Edwards is fine.   Then a second OL at R4 followed by a much needed TE too late in R5.      I hope you’ll keep doing more of these.  You enjoy doing them, so keep having fun!  That’s what this is all about!   
    • The one thing JB is has been a great teammate and a good citizen for sure. His QB’ing skills lag behind those assets though. I’m content with Rivers and Kelly, assuming that the team has a future purpose for Kelly. CB knows what Kelly can or can’t do in practices and stuff. He has stayed clean and had zero distractions. He definitely has the QB talent, can he lead a team with his new found choir boy status? Time will tell.    it would be tough to go from highly propped up starter with a raise and tons of praise into a back up spot. Except that money could help. I hope we move on from him, he is not our future.
