Carcass, back from the dead?

Postby cooleyhigh » Sat May 29, 2004 12:28 pm

Do you guys think Robinson will be a legit #2 in Minn. this year or just another in the long line of nobodys opposite Moss? He had a few nice games last year and can catch the deep ball but man he scares me. Would you spend a LATE round pick on him?

Culpepper is definatly an upgrade @ QB over Anthony Wright or Kyle Boller. He'll always been pretty loosly guarded with Moss being double teamed on the side of the field. Definatly a good sleeper and a late-round stash.

I'd definitely spend a late round pick on him as a backup WR. Lots of upside there. More importantly, I think his presence solidfies Culpepper as the top QB and Moss as the top WR. I would have had them there anyways though.

Long line? How long has it been since Cris Carter retired? This is 3 years, right? Woe is you poor Vikes fans. Trying to remember the last good #2 WR in Dallas.... uh, who lined up besides Bullet Bob Hayes, anyway?

I dont think you'd have top spend a late rnd pick on him, he'll be on the wire in the majority of leagues.

Robinson was great for a couple years in chicago before he started having big time injury problems... I think he can be a solid starter next to moss... BTW his injuries are what got Booker noticed in Chicago...

If this guy does ANYTHING in August, he'll get drafted in any league with 10 or more teams. Any if he manages to grab a few TD's in August, he might rise to mid-round pick status, which I think is too high.

The #2 WR on a high powered offense will get drafted no matter what kind of reputation he has.

He's definitely worth a roster spot. After around the 20th overall WR is the line when #2 WRs from a good team are better than #1 WRs from a bad team. I'm not saying draft him 21st, but he's definitely worth whatever spot people were drafting Reggie Wayne and Tai Streets last season.

Yes, I would definitely take him late in a draft or off the waiver wire if possible. Marcus Robinson has great talent, putting up 1400 yards and 9 TDs the only year he played all games as a starter. Before Carter left the Vikings had 6 straight years (1994-2000) with two WRs over 1000 yards. Now with Moss having his foot problem if Robinson can stay healthy he could be in for a big year.

Sorry to get off topic, but Zimm, don't you think it's time to lose the beginner "L"?

Robinson would make a decent pick for a #4 WR to start. I suspect there will be someone in most drafts picking him too high, though, hoping for Cris Carter numbers.
