    This draft looks to be loaded with WRs in general, but particularly slot guys.

    who is your favorite???
    Rondale Moore
    Tutu Atwell
    Elijah Moore
    Kadarius Toney
    Amari Rodgers
    Jaelon Darden
    Dazz Newsome
    Tylan Wallace

    other guys you all like as slot guys???

    Tutu Atwell’s speed reminds me of CJ because the defenders take the correct angle to tackle him and he just outruns it...certainly have to worry about his size, but his speed is the real deal

    Dardon has the best stop start short area quickness

    Wallace isn’t as quick as he is fast but he is great at winning contested throws and can break tackles when he gets the ball in his hands on bubble screens

    Rodgers is built more like a RB...his frame is more likely to hold up to NFL punishment

    lots of good choices

    Either of the Moore guys I'm all in for. I also like Rodgers. They all have qualities that jump at you. Imo,Rondale Moore is more of a complete package and is ready to make a big impact in his first year.

    My favorites are Rodgers, Elijah Moore, and Wallace.

    I like Rondale Moore, but not where we'd probably have to take him. And I'm not sure we'd use him well.

    I don't think Toney is worth a 1st and I don't like Atwell at all.

    If Rondale Moore runs a 4.29, you definitely cannot see it on tape.....

    Shifty, yes - but he's not exactly dusting dudes.


    Felton from UCLA looks interesting. Curtis Samuel, Corradarrelle Patterson type gadget.

    I've stopped getting excited about slot guys and receiving backs. We never seem to know how to use them anyway.

    Atwell at 155 pounds, barely ran faster than AJ Brown and Brown's time was official at the combine lol. Atwell will be an udfa and will amount to nothing. Too small and apparently slow

    Not looking good for him if speed and ST experience isn't there...

    Weaknesses
    • All skin and bones on spindly frame.
    • Falls well-below size standards even for a slot.
    • Lacks committed effort working into the middle of the field.
    • Below-average adjusting routes to traffic and redirection attempts.
    • Can improve working to softest spots of zone for his quarterback.
    • Poor play strength to create enough contested catch space.
    • Will struggle to secure the catch through contact.
    • Needs to play to his best speed on a consistent basis.
    • Very little special teams background.

    I don’t care what he ran at his pro day.....I’ve seen him totally blow by the defense in games....the kid is fast....i too question his size and how it will limit him
