Jester Weah, WR, Pittsburgh

Born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin, a return home for Jester Weah is not out of question.

The Packers have a “need for speed”. The team’s receivers were ranked as the slowest in the NFL last season. Weah would bring exceptional speed to a team that needs it most.

He ran the sixth fastest 40-yard dash among wide receivers at the NFL combine this year. Clocking in at 4.43 seconds, it would be the best on the team. Although a 40 time doesn’t always show how fast someone is on the football field, it is a good indicator.

Weah has good size with a wide frame for a receiver too. He also played high school basketball. That should help with his ball skills and body positioning when he makes the leap to the NFL.

While he will bring exceptional speed to the team he is drafted to, he needs to improve on his initial acceleration and lateral quickness. He has trouble finding separation, something that has been a problem for Packers wide receivers as of late.

If given time, Weah could become a dangerous speed threat for Aaron Rodgers to throw to. The team has lacked speed greatly. Weah could be the man that opens up the field for others too.
