Rank these Rookie WRs

Postby sloanrobe » Wed May 04, 2011 7:23 pm

It's my pick in the rookie draft and I need a WR. How would you rank these WRs?

Jonathan Baldwin
Torrey Smith
Leonard Hankerson
Titus Young
Randall Cobb

Green, Jones and Greg Little have already been drafted. Also, what is everyone's opinion of Kendall Hunter? Could he take over for Gore eventually?

Baldwin has a very good chance of being a beast in the NFL. Baltimore has pretty much said that Smith will be starting this year. Although to be honest I'm not a huge fan of his. I would almost put Cobb over him. I really like the long term potential of the Rodgers to Cobb connection. Once Driver retires I think Cobb will have a real shot at taking the #2 spot. Even if he is #3 for awhile he can still be productive on that offense. I don't think that Young is the "poor man's DJax" like everyone says he is. He could end up being a stud, but I don't think it's likely. Hankerson is going to be in a bad situation on a bad team with a lot of other young WRs battling for playing time.

Why do you have Cobb ranked #1? Do you think he'll be that much better than the others?

I liked Cobb quite a bit coming into the draft, and his stock went up in my eyes when he was drafted by GB. I think Cobb has the potential to be a WR2 or even a co-WR1 in this offense, which gives him more upside than any rookie WR outside of Green and Jones. And yes, I like him better than Little as well.

Just my 2 cents.

Cobbs a great athlete but he doesn't have the situation to be "great." Not when you have Greg Jones and Finley, Smith could be a true number one, same with Baldwin.

I know you meant Greg Jennings...

I think your statement is short-sighted in regards to Cobb... he could very well emerge as the #1 target in GB in a few years. Jennings is a very good WR but is not a "transcendent" talent that can't be overtaken by a promising young WR at some point. And even if he's "only" a top-3 target for his first couple of years, he's a guy with a higher floor than most of the others due to the passing offense he is in.

I enjoy differing opinions on players and opportunities.... please don't take it wrong when I hope my leaguemates in my two dynasty leagues share your opinion and Cobb drops to me late... :-b
