There's the typical speed guy that'll burn you 5'11-6'1, 180-190 lbs, 4.3

There's the strong run blocking guy 6'2-6'4, 220-230 lbs, 4.9

Then there's my personal favorite....the tall possesion guy who wont burn you deep but has reliable hands and has the hops 6'4-6'5, 200 lbs, 4.8...you gotta love throwing up that fade when your on the 5-yd line

I want both because my ideal set is a 4 wide set. In that set, I want the small quick guys in the slots so they can take those quick slants and screens and use their speed and elusiveness against the LBs and safeties covering them to make big plays. I want the big guys on the outsides for fades post patterns, crossing routes, etc. so they can use their size and strength advantage against the smaller CBs covering them.

Watching a tall/slim speed burner sizzle the CB over & over for TD's gets a little old. Sure, it's nice for a quick six.. but i like some action involved with scoring.

I'm much more entertained by watching a beasty TE on a post patern steamrolling a DB shaking at the knees, or dragging a few defenders in for six!!

I tend to like the 6'4", 215 pound receivers that run in the 4.4 range and make all the crazy catches. If I can't have that, I'll take the possession guy that knows where to find the holes in the zone.

i don't care so much about the size, just give me a receiver whose moves make the db"s speed work against him. combine that with decent speed and flypaper hands, and you have the ultimate possession receiver, and a deep threat too. it turns out when you are wide open, your height is only an issue if the qb throws it high. of course, i could be biased a little.

i love a reciever with great hands and good run aftrer the catch ability. alot of speed helps but no really needed if he has the other intangibles and is fast enough.

i think run blocking ability is an overlooked quality as well. I remember seeing Calvin Johnson when he was still at Georgia Tech. He would completely seal off his whole side of the field. One play in particular, on a sweep he used the corner as a shield to block the linebacker, released, and then went downfield to successfully block the strong safety. 65 yd TD.

I know this is the serious part of the forum, but frankly, here in Copperas Cove, we just want receivers that DON'T DROP THE BALL. Tall, short, athletic, fast, slow, it don't matter. Just don't drop the thing.....

David Boston on juice or the Hulk?
He's huge!!!!!!!
Where is he now?
Toiling in obscurity?

He was good when he played for the Cardinals

played for the Dolphins, chargers, any other team? that is simply off the top of my head i suppose i could research....shoot probably wikipedia real quick

but anyway as far as the question is concerned

Just like beautiful women, good receivers come in all shapes and sizes.....you all know that
The best receiver is the selfless receiver.....oops they don't exist

Wide receivers would rather catch 10 balls for 100+ yards, 1 or 2 tds team loses than to win a game and have 1-4 receptions for 10-50 yards and 0 tds

Not being involved in the game sucks
The most underrated part of the game is line play.....this determines how much you can do if you can't block you can't run or pass no matter how good your skill position players are

I'm too lazy to post a picture but I'd rather post a picture of a complete offensive line

More skill position guys should thank the line during interviews....this includes receivers
Running backs may be more adept to thank the linemen
You see how valuable linemen are when owners throw down big money for them

Euless Trinity's success is in large part due to the linemen

So in conclusion.....screw receivers, give me a good line

Ed was good Ricky Proehl spelling? of course most people would probably say that Steve Largent was the best white receiver of the modern NFL due to his statistics Tasker and Beebe for da Bills
I'm thinking of recent good white receivers
of course you have Welker
Furrey had one solid year

Could Jordy Nelson be the next solid white receiver in the NFL?

Think of some more good white receivers in recent years i would say 90's and up (Tecmo Super Bowl and up) (Matt Jones is not solid enough)

I should simply start a new thread, but oh well

I personally prefer the 6'4" type wide out who will go get the ball, and catch it like he stole it. This is the guy you can count on to go after it late in the game for field position for your kicker or for the score and the win....yep, just like Dan Buckner!!

Wide Receivers that block improve the running game for every team. They are one of the most important positions on the field.
