Hrmm... The forgotten Gardner

Postby GMoney » Sat May 29, 2004 1:55 am

Ill just start this thread with HE WAS TERRIBLE last year, but on that note, he HAS been good before... and without doing any reseach he aint that old.

A fresh QB could do wonders for this guy...

A possible sleeper since eveyone seems to have forgotten about him, I know I had...

Drafted in 2001, 1st round, 15th overall pick

Here are his stats over the past 3 years:

Year Team G   Rec Yds Y/G Avg Lng YAC 1stD TD
2001 Washington 16   46 741 46.3 16.1 85 5.7 28 4
2002 Washington 16   71 1006 62.9 14.2 43 3.7 51 8
2003 Washington 16   59 600 37.5 10.2 35 3.0 30 5

He was very solid in 2002, but he fell off in 2003 (3rd season)
He makes a decent sleeper

Coles comming to WAS sure did put a thumpin on those stats, didnt he?

I like Gardner, but its gonna be tough for the #2 WR to excell in a Gibbs run oriented offense.

I agree, Gardner might be a very late round guy to stash on your bench but don't be surprised if his numbers drop again. With a legit running back and Gibbs running the show, he won't be getting a lot of looks.

I thought you were talking Talman Gardner for a sec, the 2nd year WR from FSU

I have been picking him up really late in some mock drafts. I seem to remember Gary Clark and Art Monk having pretty good seasons in the same year. 1989 they had three recievers go over 1000 yards (Clark, Monk, Ricky Sanders) with Mark Rypien throwing the ball. But then again they really didn't have a decent running back to rely on.

He will be a steal this year. Grab him if you can.

Lots of WRs there for them to spread the ball around,not to mention Gibbs love for the running game(as mentioned).Maybe worth a late round pick if you can afford it but don't be surprised if you gotta ditch him to the WW sometime mid-season.

It'll be tough for him to standout in the seemingly high-powered Skins offense. He should put up decent numbers, but there will definitely be many #2 WRs that are better than him. And of course, he has the great James Thrash to also take away his looks...
