What's stopping a solid WR from emerging there? Is it simply that the talent isn't there? After all, they haven't taken a WR high since the Sylvester Morris debacle (injuries). Kennison was once a talented burner but is old and washed up now. Boerigter had a shot, but injuries derailed him. Any insight?
Herm Edwards has tossed 40% of the Chiefs offensive plays that were in the play book under Al Saunders the last few years and torn them out of the playbook, replacing them with "off tackle right" and "off tackle left".
As for Kennison, I think your right about him being old. You are dead wrong about him being washed up. Total up the last 3 to 4 years catch statistics and yardage stats, and you'll be amazed at where this guy ranks in the NFL. He gets a lot of quiet yards and has been a very reliable, high value fantasy #3 and sometimes even #2 guy the last 4 years.
