    Here's your difference:

    Negatives: Has good agility, but appears a little stiff in his hips … Not quick to sink his hips, relying on his speed to come out of his breaks … Needs to be a little softer in his angle cuts … Has great acceleration, but is not light on his feet … Uses his size and power to get a quick release off the line, but can be contained vs. physical press coverage … Will compete for the ball, but despite his leaping ability, tends to have problems maintaining position going for the high pass … Has to work on extending his hands better as he will absorb and trap the ball on occasion … Has large hands, yet they are not soft … Will cradle and body catch rather than plucking and extending for the ball, but has shown improvement trying to catch the ball outside the frame … Struggles fighting for the high pass, but maintains concentration on the ball in flight … Shows good body control and has the flexibility to adjust to the ball, but just needs to show better consistency … Seems hesitant in his planting and does not sink his hips to come out of his break … Will gather and round his cuts at times, but has the body control to steadily improve his timing.

    Calico: Stiff with hands of stone and nowhere near the ability to go up and catch the ball.

    At least 2 of the WR's we drafted will be better than Orr and Williams.

    How in the world can you people compare our draft picks to the WRs we already have on the team? Orr's been in the NFL for a year, Williams, Roby, and Jones have two years of experience, and should be hitting their magical third year, where it comes together. Why would any of the rookies be better than them? Also, who here knows that much about any of the rookies? Other than highlight tapes and opinions read by other people, who may or may not know what they're talking about, what do you know? You can comment about what you've seen from the guys that are on the team, but to compare them to guys you've never seen before and probably hadn't heard of a week ago is ridiculous. You're all proving Gunny's point that the GMs who make these picks have so much more information to work with than we do that we should give them the benefit of the doubt. Oh, yes, and that's what he was saying, Gloat, not the ridiculous thing you made it out to be. And I'd take Matt Millen drafting for my team over you any day. That's saying a lot, I can't believe he still works in the NFL, but he's more qualified than pretty much anyone here.

    How do you figure that? Orr has done nothing to show me that he has more potential than these guys. He was a 6th round pick last year and the reports out of training camp were not all that encouraging. The 3 rookies have caught as many passes and played in as many games as Orr as a pro - zero.

    I'm not too worried about our receivers. Hopefully we'll run the ball 85% of the time and they won't have to do much anyway.

    But 85% is a little ridiculous.
