When you're scouting players in the draft, life becomes significantly easier when you can find or create an advanced statistic that puts all the players in context with one another. For running backs, there's the Speed Score. Unfortunately, there aren't many good measuring sticks for wide receivers. One tool, proposed by Frank DuPont, tries to measure wide receiver production. It isn't a perfect stat, as there are many variables that it cannot account for. But, as you'll see, it produces some fairly good results. I've listed the formula and results below:
(Weight/40-Yard Time) + (Touchdowns/Game) + (Yards/Game)
Which receiver do you want the New York Jets to select?
