WR Prospects - the no names

You know us Skins fans, we love talking about the future, not the season we're currently playing in. 

I think all of us are in agreement, the Redskins should and will draft a QB in the 1st round next April, if they don't, well.... Hello 6-10 in 2012 and maybe even goodbye Shanny. Nonetheless, we have so many holes on this offense, filling them all could prove costly. Although we all recognize the depth along the Oline as a priority, explosive talent out wide (or lack there of) is another. As argued before Kyle needs the players if this offense is to take off. 

By drafting QB, the odds of landing a big name receiver like Justin Blackmon, Alshon Jeffrey, or Michael Floyd would be out of the question. So I decided to scout a few other guys who might not get the same love.

Looking at the rest of the talent that should be eligible for next years draft, we may be able to still find our playmaker in the 2nd-4th round range, where the Redskins currently have 4 picks. 

Some of the guys on my radar include:

Jeff Fuller - Texas A&M, 6ft 3, 215 lbs, 4.5 40
Pros - Big body, quick, not just fast. (good burst) runs good routes
Cons - May sneak into the top of the 1st round (Pro for him, bad for us), inconsistent hands

Juron Criner - Arizona, 6ft 4, 210 lbs, 4.6 40
Pros - good hands, decent route runner, bigger receiver, which we don't have a lot of
Cons - slower - needs to build up to speed, looks more like a possession receiver in the NFL

Ryan Broyles - Oklahoma, 5-11, 185lbs, 4.5 40
Pros - Been a playmaker at a big school for as long as he's been there, great hands, quick, good slot guy
Cons - Small frame, doesn't fulfill need of a bigger receiver, Santana Moss like


Greg Childs - Arkansas, 6-3, 215lbs, 4.55 40
Pros - has caught a lot of balls, in a passing offense, good hands 
Cons - long strider,  has to build up to full speed

These are just a few examples of guys I have my eye on. Others include Mohamed Sanu (Rutgers) and Marvin McNutt (Iowa). Granted, we do have some young wideouts in the form of Paul, Hankerson, and Austin. But that still doesn't mean guys like Santana, Gaffney or Armstrong are getting any younger, and they aren't true No 1's anyways. I feel like Fuller or Childs (my favorites) could be that for us.

What do you guys and gals think?
