We could just go after TO lol
Newbie here, I just thought I would weigh in with my thoughts on the third wide receiver. I hope that Nate stays but if not I think that Sweed will get his shot. I really think that he can become a good receiver. I agree that more than likely we are going to draft a wide receiver in the later rounds. Looking at the list of free agent receivers I really didn't see a lot of help there.
a "perfect" fit for depth would be a guy like robert meachem who seems to have fallen out of favor in new orleans. hes a guy that could contribute as a #4. Meachem is a big play threat on a team stacked with WR talent, hes got tremendous straightline speed and is no fun to tackle. you dont want over priced old dudes when there is quality youth out there, some havent had the opportunity and some have been underacheivers....steelers can cure that better than some teams
it would be a blessing for fitz to want to come to the steelers, lol
Most of these guys aren't really all that spectacular
Devery Henderson-Crazy fast but runs sloppy routes and has suspect hands
Jabar Gaffney-He will probably re-sign with the Pats but he is a solid veteran that gets by on technique more than anything. Not an impressive athlete that has long ago hit his ceiling.
Brandon Lloyd-Lazy player that is good for one good game a year. Makes the hard catches look easy and the easy catches look hard.
Terrance Copper-Special Teams stalwart that is limited athletically. Not physically impressive.
Mark Jones-Consistent return man that does not have the size to be a contributor in the passing game
Shaun McDonald- Solid veteran player that can return punts in a pinch. Above-average speed, Above-average quickness, decent hands, not ideal size, etc.
Ashlie Lelie-Career underachiever that is now viewed as a singular deep threat with no other real virtues.
Brandon Jones-Titan may re-sign him. Young player that has been hampered by injury throughout his career. Still has room to improve.
Drew Carter-Blown out both knees and still probably runs a 4.3. Still has upside but cannot be counted on at all to produce consistently.
Keary Colbert-Piece of trash. No value what so ever
Darrell Jackson-Laziness and poor work ethic has eroded a once promising career. Worthless at this point and would probably demand too much money.
Jerry Porter-I like Jerry Porter. Not sure why. He has average size and above average speed. OK hands and decent route running ability. A bit of enigma that rubs a lot of people the wrong way.
