Every year there are wide receivers picked early who turn out to be busts. Other than a sure thing like Calvin Johnson, early picked wide receivers performance in the NFL are usually hard to predict. This year there are three major wide receivers at the top of the class that everyone is talking about:
I've seen a lot of discussion on this site about these three guys and everyone seems to have a favorite and everyone seems to have at least one that they think will bust. I think it's a good guess that at least one will bust. They all seem to have major question marks surrounding them to the point that I'm starting to like Kelvin Benjamin better than any of them.
I'd have to say that Sammy Watkins is probably my favorite, but I think he'd be best on a team that double dips and picks up Jordan Matthews in the second round. Pairing an explosive player with a super reliable one.
Marqise Lee was my pick to be the bust, but the more I read about these players, the more it seems like Mike Evans is the guy with bust written all over him.
They'll probably all be out of the Jets reach at 18, but one of them might slip. No one knows how the draft will play out. Geno was the consensus number one overall at this point last year, after all. So any of them might find themselves at 18.
Point is, I want to gauge the GGN community and use this place to find out more about these players. Let's talk about which one is your favorite and why? And more importantly, which one do you think will bust and why?
