Rogers is the #1 receiver in Detroit..hands down!!! Before he got hurt last year, he put up some good numbers...and, with the extra time off and all the extra time to study the playbook, I think he will have a very good season. Plus, he is developing a very good repore with Harrington. Many analysts were comparing Rogers to Moss...they both are tall, VERY quick, can run by 95% of DB's, and have madd HOPS!!! Rogers has Fantasy Stud written all over him...will he produce this year or next.....one knows????

It's not a bad situation for Williams to be in. You have Rogers (Harrington's favorite target), Streets, and Hakim there.... so there will be very little pressure on him. He should be able to take his time, learn the system, and get comfortable. That said, I see him having very little impact this year fantasy wise. Of course an injury to any of the others would change things a bit. I like the other rookie WR named Williams more for this year. REGGIE Williams for the Jags. ;-D

I wouldn't say Rogers has Moss talent, as anyone in the league will tell you that for pure athleticism, Moss is likely the most athletic wideout to ever play the game, but Rogers has good athleticism and is quick to the ball, which is what makes him a favorite of Harrington. Also, for Rogers to reach higher levels like Moss, he'll need Harrington to really develop also.

Williams will eventually become a very good NFL WR, maybe even great. but not this quickly.

The transition from college to the NFL for WR's is very difficult. Many of the WR's drafted early have the pure athleticism to get them there. They were able to use the ability in college to win the battles 95% of the time. But in the NFL their athleticism is usually average at best. Rare anomolies like Moss do occur, but very rarely.

WR's need not only the game time but the practice time to learn how to run proper and crisper routes. They're not going to come into the NFL and just blow by the Baileys, McCallisters and such. Thats why you normally see WR's break out by year 3 or they never do.

I have read that Rogers has near-Moss talent many times. One guy went so far to say that Rogers is a small bit below Moss in the physical section of football, but should be as successful because of his willingness to go across the middle.
