As requested by a few posters..... 

 

Three Polls

 

Poll 1 (select all that apply)

What WRs will "Boom" out of the first 3 rounds in their first year in the NFL. A legit "Boom" will be defined as 1000 yards or more (top 30ish WR). Only one rook hit 1000 last year (AJ Brown). Two others had 900 or more (Metcalf and McLaurin).  Slayton and Samuel had 700+. 

 

Poll 2 (select all that apply)

What WRs will have "Mini-Booms" from rounds 4-7 in their first year. We'll define Mini-Boom as 600 yards or more (near the bottom of WR2 level yards).

 

Poll 3 (select all that apply)

What 1st and 2nd round WRs are most likely to "Bust" in year one (3rd round or later aren't really busts). We'll define "Bust" as under 400 yards (under WR3 yardage).
 

 

Regarding the numbers below to the right. I did a little un-scientific math for my own benefit. The first number is the WR's total yards last year. The % is the WR's % of his college QBs total yardage. The final number is that same % multiplied by his new QBs total yardage. Again, nothing scientific, I just wanted to see what it would look like if they carried their same production/reliance over to the NFL. Obviously QBs are different, etc.. QBs will certainly vary as will surrounding talent at WR and TE, etc.. I normalized some totals due to injury.

Boom

Ruggs - Carr needed a WR bad, and Ruggs will get used early and often.

Jeudy - I think Lock breaks out this year, and Jeudy is the guy to help him

Higgins - Will be Burrow's new best friend. 

Mims - I was hesitant to pick him, but I think he'll do nicely. Maybe more like 800

 

Mini-Boom

Gandy Golden - hesitant to pick him, but McLaurin worked out well there last year.

Tyler Johnson - Just because Brady want to have fun.....

Quintez Cephus - Stafford should light this dude up if he can keep his head on straight

Quez Watkins - Speedy dude will fit in well in Philly.

***I almost picked Jennings, but did not... Undervalued IMO, just like Patmon.

 

Bust

Jalen Reagor - Just not feeling him as a fast starter in Philly

Laviska Shenault - I could be totally wrong here. Just not a fan. Minshew might prove me wrong.

Van Jefferson - Just not enough dinner to feed everyone.
