javon will get open. javon will get his. i don't see how the situation this year is any different than it was last year in the second half of the season. i'll take him. go ahead and pass on him.

No one is saying that he'll ignore Javon on draft day. At least no one has said that yet. :-b


Javon Walker's last 8 games last season:

30 rec., 415 yds, 3 TDs.

Expecting more of the same of that isn't real exciting for a guy getting drafted as high as he is.

I'm not going to completely ignore J. Walker, I just think there are better options around the same spot in the draft. I would not want him as my WR1 (which is what he is being drafted as), but would DEFINITELY take him as my 2nd WR.

Lots of people think he has top 5 potential, and I just don't see it at all. In a different offense wiht a more experienced QB, I agree, but not in Denver with Cutler being so young and inexperienced.

i hear ya. i have javon on several teams. and do not have him as my #1 on any team. he's even the 3rd wr i've taken in at least one league. so i'll say i'm happy with javon as a #2 or #3. i expect some chemistry from cutler to develop with javon as he returns to his old form. i see him as a solid top flight wr2 with massive upside.

Yeah, Walker scares me a little too. He was doing great with Plummer at QB, when when Cutler came in, he didn't do much at all. And it wasn't like Cutler was playing like crap. Cutler threw 9 TD's, and only 2 of which were to Walker.

Yep. I think this is the Book on Walker this year.

Not to mention the Broncos' schedule against the pass this year is a bitch.

Yep. I think this is the Book on Walker this year.

The problem is he's being drafted way earlier, like WR 12 or WR 8 even. Ahead of guys like Donald Driver and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. I'll take him any day as my WR2, but that's tough to come by really unless you burn a 4th rounder on him.

WTF is wrong with you people????????????? Are you all so hung up on FFL stats that you forget to actually watch football at any stage?????????????

How on earth can you look at Walkers stats from last year and use them to predict anything this year?

Jake Plummer was shite last year. Pure and simple. It was one of the most inept displays by a veteran NFL QB that I have ever seen. Cutler took over and was forced to run an OFFENSE BUILT FOR JAKE PLUMMER. How similar do you actually think Jay Cutler is to Jake Plummer? Well if you dont know, then the answer is not at all. Jay plays from the pocket, he has a strong arm and the pocket is where he will be this year. Jake Plummer sucks from the pocket, he needs to be boot-legging to his left with his eyes closed before he is even a chance of hitting a receiver. Every time Denver have lost in the Plummer-era is pretty much every time the opposing defense found a way to keep Plummer in the pocket.

Denver's offense will not look like the offense they had last year. Javon Walker is the most talented receiver on the Broncos roster by such a long way that it is not even funny. If you were a QB with 5 NFL games experience under your belt who do you think you would be practicing throwing too right now in camp? Who do you think would be the guy to haul in your passes once the season started? Gimpy veterans, an injury prone kid, or one of the most physically gifted receivers in the game? Travis Henry, Daniel Graham and a solid o-line gives Cutler time to throw the ball, and I am pretty sure that Shanny and Jay will be working on lots of different ways to get the ball into Walker, his best playmaker, hands.

Knock Walker down your rankings if you will, but please dont do it because Jay Cutler showed a preference for Scheffler and Marshall last year. That would be obscenely stupid IMO.

i'm a believer. i would love to haven javon as my #1 wr (i have him ranked 7th among wr's). i think that with more consitent qb play we can expect a lot more than what we got from javon last year.

I understand that he is an extremely talented WR, but I see him in a very run heavy offense with a very young QB, and that scares me. I'm more inclined to pick a Roy Williams or even Housh or L. Evans over Walker.

Am I totally crazy?? What am I missing?


Bummer!

Exactly! I'd love him as a WR2 on my team, but I'm not going to make him the 8th or 9th WR off the board either, which is where he's getting picked in a lot of leagues right now.
