Our “Red Dot” Wide Receivers
Kyle — Corey Davis, Western Michigan
Corey Davis might slip a little bit on draft day because of his injury and not being able to complete all of the pre-draft athletic testing, but just turn on the tape. Oh. My. Goodness. This guy can play. He’s my WR1 and it’s really not close. You can be critical of his level of competition, but it’s hard to say that what you see on tape won’t translate to Sundays. He’s a true number one receiver all day.
Dan — Carlos Henderson, Louisiana Tech
Henderson is a dynamic wide receiver who can plays with the ball in his hands out in space. In 2016 alone, he recorded 82 receptions for 1,535 yards and 19 touchdowns. While he’s very effective in the short game, he also has the top-end speed to make plays downfield. Henderson will get pegged as a slot receiver because of his size (5-11, 195), but he has the big-play ability and sharp route running to be an effective boundary receiver. Henderson is just flat-out fun to watch on film and any offense would benefit to have him on their roster.
Our “Black Dot” Wide Receivers
Kyle — John Ross, Washington
Can I just say that I love what Ross will bring to an offense? His world-class speed, illusiveness, and smooth routes would make him an easy first round pick. But his injury history has me backing away. I can’t risk spending a premium pick on a guy whose career has already been plagued with injuries. Knees and hamstrings are crucial to anyone’s game, but health is absolutely necessary to a guy whose game is speed. I’m not sure Ross can stay on the field.
Dan — Dede Westbrook, Oklahoma
Westbrook can be a game-breaking playmaker on the field. However, there are way too many red flags with his game. Not only has the former Sooner faced several domestic violence charges while at Oklahoma, he was also recently arrested this spring for criminal trespassing. Even all of the off-field concerns aside, Westbrook’s thin 5-11, 175-pound frame raises durability concerns. Can a wide receiver of Westbrook’s build hold up going over the middle of the field in the NFL?
