Being bigger than the other guy might work in college but that won't fly in the NFL unless you have other tools as well, otherwise linemen would line up in the slot.
The Lions WRs are so overrated it's ridiculous. My comments on Mike are above. Roy has done fairly well and he has excellent hands but he doesn't create mis matches with his size or his speed. Rogers has been in the NFL 3 years now and still hasn't done anything but prove he is injury prone. I think he has the most potential out of the three, still.
With that in mind, there's a good chance Rogers will be the #2 in Detroit at some point and could have a successful NFL career, in Detroit or elsewhere. I think if he gets traded virtually anywhere his value goes up.
Say what? I am not a big Roy fan, I prefer Rogers but this statement is totally untrue. He is 6-2 and 212 and pretty strong which means that there are few corners of his size and he runs a 4.3.
