    Chris Palmer.

    I like how Wright had 64 catches, but never broke 100 yards in a game. For a guy who's "deadly with the ball in his hands", he sure didn't do much. I do expect more from him this year. I'm still praying he turns into a slower Steve Smith. I'm hoping for 800+ yards & 7 TDs with a YPC of 12.

    1 game means little but apparently when Robert Woods was a freshmen and Richard Sherman was a senior, Woods got him for 12 catches, 250 yards in one game. Not bad.

    Sherman might just be the most overrated player in the league. Benefits off a superior pass rush and his ability to not STFU after getting torched by legit receivers.

    This is true but even with all that he's a legitimately good NFL corner. His height makes getting to the ball way easier than it should be for a corner.

    I'm liking Aaron Dobson more and more, this kid could be ours with our first 3rd rounder. 6'3" 4.4 speed

    I've heard him referred to as "Kenny Britt without the legal troubles"

    I watched a highlight which obviously isn't the whole story but he has really good hands he isn't a body catcher, good size and speed could use some additional muscle though. He has really good ball skills I'd like to see him separate a little more consistently but I think that is refining his routes, he either has a lot of separation or makes a contested catch. I think Kenny is more physical but they have some similarities on tape.

    I agree, it sucks to say because we definitely need help up front, but like you say Washington is about to hit the downhill slope and Britt is in the last year of his deal. Britt can't stay healthy/stay right off the field. I seriously see us going WR in one of the first 3 rounds. Our GM seems to get in the mode that because we bring in a guy from FA that we're set at those spots (Levitre, Pollard, Greene, or Walker.) I like the idea of bringing in a new wideout to push Britt and Washington along, but it's hard when we're one of the leagues worst at running the ball. Our tackles are the only solid thing we have on the O-Line and they've got maybe 3 years left a piece.
