I was reading through some of the comments on Drafttek's latest Mock and found something that raised my interest levels and that my also prove relevant to us, as the likelihood that we pick a WR early seems a popular concept. It says
" If you take a look at the 30 WRs who were leaders in TDs in 2013, how many would you guess are receivers over 6'1"? 15? 20? 25? Actually, 26 of the top 30 receivers are over 6'1", accounting for 85% of the touchdowns among this group. In contrast, shorter receivers dominate yardage gained."
I think this raised a few questions for me regarding our own needs at WR. Do we need a tall guys who will put points on the board or a small guy who can reliably move the chains for us?
Ideally you'd like a guy to do both but if you had to choose between big and small in this draft for that very reason, would it change who you pick?
We all have our favourite guys at WR in the draft and all for very different reasons. There appears to be a wide variety of skill sets from all the different prospects on offer this year. But what is it this team actually needs, do we need the tall TD machine or the small chain mover ?
Would love to hear your opinion on this so feel free to comment below. Thanks
