Rank these rookie WR's...

Postby Plindsey88 » Tue Mar 16, 2004 5:36 pm

In the order I would rank them, the top wide receiver prospects are:

Larry Fitzgerald, Pittsburgh
Mike Williams, USC
Roy Williams, Texas
Michael Clayton, LSU
Reggie Williams, Washington
Rashaun Woods, OK State
Lee Evans, Wisconsin
Devery Henderson, LSU
Michael Jenkins, Ohio State
Derrick Hamilton, Clemson
Devard Darling, Washington State
Ernest Wilford, VA Tech

What do you guys think? How would you rank them? And how many of these are even close to potential fantasy prospects in a keeper league?

I appreciate the help... ;-D

Just VHawk? No other takers? Geez... People jumped all over the RB thread... Are people just less knowledgable or less interested in wide outs?

Receivers are harder to predict since the variables involved such as playing time, team, QB, and who they are playing across from. I don't have enough time watching most of these guys to tell you how they will do. I can tell you who I pick as a sleeper though. I watched every Washington State game this year(all the home games in person). And Devard Darling has what it takes to be a solid wideout.

His size and proportions are very similar to those of Eric Moulds. Likewise, he can catch across the middle and can also be used as a deep threat which WSU usually used him as. His numbers dropped this year since Jason Gesser left and Matt Kegal sucks. Before Mike Williams and Fitz entered the draft, Darling was projected to go in the second round. Now some team is going to get a steal out of the 3rd or 4th round. But like most recievers, you wont see an instant impact from him. I think with the depth at position this year, you will see a lot of late round guys become great receivers.

Devard Darling r0x0rz s0x0rz - he'll be a nice pickup for whatever team drafts him in the mid rounds.

Anyway, my viable fantasy WR rankings would look a little like this...

Larry Fitzgerald
Mike Williams
Roy Williams
Reggie Williams
RaShaun Woods
Michael Clayton

...I'm not bored enough to rank the other half dozen or so that I'd consider "threats," so be content with what I did.

Here is my problem. I can't rank any rookies until I know what team they are going to. Opportunity is everything in determining which guys are going to get a shot and are worth considering picking up. I don't disagre the list with regard to talent, but unless they are on a great team, I wouldn't consider anyone below Clayton until they proved something on the field.

As a side note. I picked up Rogers last year and stil think he has a big up side.

I think that this is true for WRs that are not graded as being in the first round. If you look at the past three of four years in the draft, you will notice that alot of WRs have turned out from bad situations. I don't think that it makes much sense for a team to draft a WR in the first round and not give them an opportunity to play.
