A WR is a position where EVERYTHING is more complex than on the college level. The routes are totally different, way more complex on the NFL level. There is very little on the college level to prepare a WR for the NFL game...most aspects on the college level for a WR aren't even close to that of the NFL level. On the NFL level, the receiver needs to know when to cut a route when to extend a route when to change a route...they need to block which they normally don't do on the college level. In college a WR can get by on size and speed. That's not going to happen in the NFL.
imo, because the lack of success is there for the WR's, it's the more difficult of the two.

CB is probably one of the more physical positions.
Just my opinion...
I echo what was said about a WR often taking time, 3 years etc...
The guy is getting open. Some WRs have trouble with that.
The hands is a concentration issue as his hands were solid as was mentioned in college.
There is not a problem Sweed is encountering, that can't eventually fade away with confidence / experience.
It just takes patience on the fans part.
Sweed will NOT be a bust, mark my words....

WR's are more readily available...of course there's going to be more "good" ones...lol.
However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!
