    Just say no to Alshon Jeffery. The guy looks like he plays with cinder blocks tied to his feet.

    I'll give Jeffery credit, he puts up numbers with garbage production at the QB position, but he doesn't have bust or speed.

    I'd rate the top guys like this:

    Justin Blackmon
    Nick Fuller
    Kendall Wright
    Dwight Jones
    Alshon Jeffery

    Blackmon looks faster and more fluid than Jeffery, but Jeffery has 3 inches and 30 lbs on him. The highlights show his athleticism. I'd love to see him in Titans' blue.

    Looks like he has some sure hands...speed isn't everything..it's only a plus.

    He had some quick feet, burst (be it small) and nice moves on the reception around :55.

    I like what I saw in that reel. You don't have to be a blazing fast WR to break a big reception..catch the ball and beat your man and you can get an easy 15 - 20 yards. What about separation? Speed helps in getting separation but if he can use his big frame correctly he can still run routes correctly and box the CBs out from the ball (check the reception around :20).

    I wouldn't mind making him a Titan if he is available in the right round.

    I'm not against drafting him, just not in the top 15 where he's going to be picked. Dwight Jones in the third round is better value, for sure.

    Top 15? I doubt it. First someone tried to tell me that there would be an absurd amount of QBs going in the top 15 and now it's an absurd amount of WRs.

    Edit: You rated Jones above Jeffery...so how is the your higher rated player dropping to two rounds later?

    If Justin Blackmon is gone by the time the Jags pick, which will be in the top 15, you better believe they'll take Jeffery.

    ^ I added an edit to my post.

    How is Jones falling to round three when you have him rated higher than Jeffery?

    Just because that's the way I have them ranked doesn't mean that's the order they'll be selected. It seems like everyone is all over Jeffery's jock while Jones goes widely unnoticed.

    I like Dwight Jones more than Jeffery. I like that you can get Dwight Jones in the third round instead of Jeffery in the first.
