WR's – Current depth chart and needs

DeVante Parker – 6’3 216

Allen Hurns – 6’3 195

Albert Wilson – 5’9 195

Preston Williams – 6’5 218

Isaiah Ford – 6’2 194

Jakeem Grant 5’7 171

Ricardo Lewis – 6’2 215

Mack Hollins – 6’4 221

Gary Jennings Jr. – 6’1 216

Andy Jones – 6’1 217

Terry Wright – 5’10 177

Trevor Davis 6’1 188

A quick glance at the depth chart shows you we have a lot of big receivers, a LOT. We have a couple of diminutive receivers too, like Grant and Wilson but otherwise we have large quantities of bigger receivers, over 6 feet. As to where some of these guys are the depth chart are isn’t important, it’s basically just a list of who’s on the roster as all of this is subject to change. I do believe that until Preston Williams shows he’s fully healthy, our main outside receivers will be Parker and Hurns, and if Wilson is able to convince coaches he’s healthy enough to produce like he did the first half of the 2018 season before the hip injury, he should be our slot receiver. After that, it’s a Battle Royale and only a few more will survive.

I’d have to say that our receiving corps is a strength of this team and one of the few units that will likely remain most intact and least changed as least as far as the first 4 or 5 of the depth chart. The order may change, but I think those 5 guys are probably going to be the 5 guys on the chart come the start of the season. DeVante Parker had an impressive season and his stats don’t even tell the whole story. While his stats are impressive in their own right, the way he got there is even more impressive. It’s like a switch went off and and it was like every ball thrown in his direction was his. He made some of the most aggressive, contested catches routinely week in and week out from game #8 non. The chemistry that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and Parker developed was really something. Fitzpatrick had so much confidence in Parker that he was just throwing passes in Parker’s direction no matter how tight he was covered because he felt Parker had the best chance to come up with the ball and he was usually rewarded for that.

Parker wasn’t the only one who impressed. Preston Williams and Isaiah Ford both made great strides. Williams was a regular contributor week in week out until he was injured week 8. Williams used his size and frame to make catches but sometimes struggled with the easy ones, but you can see there’s talent there. Isaiah Ford saw limited work early on but really started impressing from week #13 on. It’s nice to have a such a young WR corps, with talented vets like Parker, Hurns and Wilson to keep these guys in line. Like I said earlier, I think the WR’s are our best and most solid unit, and although this is a very strong WR draft class, I don’t expect us to be very active in the draft for WR’s. If anything, finding a strong KR/PR who could either be a RB or WR will be a likely target.



Best wishes to everyone during this difficult and scary period in our lives. I hope the best for all of you both in health and wealth. I hope those of you that still remain employed continue to do so and hope that those who have lost their jobs (even temporarily) hang on strong until they are able to once again join the workforce. I hope you are all doing what you can to stay safe and help your neighbors and friends.

    Just finished Tiger King now what do I do for the rest of the Pandemic?

  3. Tim Knight says:

    From what I’ve seen and heard is, Tua and Burrow have the best touch, and Eason and Herbert have the strongest arms.

    In the big scheme of things, we should have a shot at 3 QBs – Burrow, Tua or Herbert at #5 unless a team jumps us. The Chargers could be that team but some other team could come out of nowhere. Which top 4 team trades down?

    If no trades happen I can see this:
    1. CIN QB Joe Burrow
    2. WAS Edge Chase Young
    3. DET LB Isaiah Simmons
    4. NYG OT (*pick one)
    5. MIA QB?

    * The Giants put themselves in a position that they have to target OT in this draft even if they pass on a better defender. Why? Because they’re going to waste Barkley 3rd season and stunt their 2nd year QB Jones if they don’t pass pro and open holes for a dominant RB.

    • D says:

      I think Washington is kinda a wildcard, i dont know that they wouldnt take a QB but with Young being available i think they would be dumb not to draft him and give Haskins another change to show growth. If i was Detroit id take Okudah, they need to replace Slay.

    • dbolt48 says:

      Honestly I have no problem w/ letting the Chargers trade up for whatever QB they want. I think no matter if it’s Tua or Herbert, Miami will land a franchise QB. Shit, Janes Morgan in RD 2 is another guy who could develop into one.

      • Mike E. says:

        That’s how I feel. I don’t mind if teams trade in front of us, I don’t want to be the team that trades up. We’ll get our QB at #5 or maybe even later.

    • steveccnv says:

      Lucky if Barry Jackson could spell salary cap, he’s so FN clueless. There’s no difference in front loading contracts and moving cap space forward to next year (like we’ve done previously). Having 80M in cap space next year, just means we have several high priced vets contracts up next year or does it? That figure comes from the expected bump in salary cap next year up to 246M, that I believe won’t happen given the current status of the virus. At least he didn’t mention the retarded gross rookie salary cap.

  6. steveccnv says:

    Lol, NJ.com has us trading up with the Gmen, basically throwing away a 2nd and some other trade downs, to select Herbert. Chargers then take Tua.

  7. Mike E. says:

    I was just listening to WFAN in NY and they’re talking about a real possibility of no NFL season, and then further discussing the possibility of building a facility that can house the entire staff of NFL employees, players, coaches, and media included, and build a stadium or field where ALL games would be played at a neutral site. How did it get to this so quickly?

  8. D says:

    Jesus, Italy is over 10k deaths, almost 11k, out of just under 100K cases.

    • steveccnv says:

      Their cases are grossly understated, it’s more like 700K.

      • steveccnv says:

        In Italy they were going to lockdown the northern part, but the day before some jackass in the media broke the story, and infected people left the north, spreading it all over the country.

        They should be held accountable.

    I think if we take Herbert its because someone jumped us for Tua, i dont think we trade up for Herbert i think would could stay put and select him though.

    Publix is installing plexiglass shields at checkout counters. Good move.

    Last time shopped was thinking “man all those people coming through are less then 3 feet away from you” about the nice checkout person.

  12. stangerx says:

    Mike E — doubt it happens, but think about if they did build a center with all the games on one field. With just one stadium would be all football all the time. Like 2 games every weekday and 3 on Sat and Sunday. Or maybe 4 on the weekends Tuesday off so everyone can reset their fantasy rosters.

    • Mike E. says:

      That’s what they were saying, games on Saturday and Sunday, neutral site where basically all the games would be played. I think that would be shame, not sure if canceling the season isn’t a better idea.

      • stangerx says:

        Would take more than one neutral site if only played on the weekends. But could have two or three. And heck…. if no spectators you only have to build fields, not stadiums. Could be Field of Dreams style.

  14. D says:

    If you look at the virus patterns, what china was seeing in January to February match the patterns we have from February to march, so if it holds, after April we should be trending down and by June probably be back close to normal. I dont think this affects football in a really adverse way.

    Hope they all do it…… and Lowe’s already did have the building materials on Aisle 19. 🙂

    LOL, I was going to say this.

  16. D says:

    Looks like Omar’s wife got it. He tweeted something about sticking by her side, in sickness and health.

  17. D says:

    Cynthia Frelund’s analytics mock draft is right on par with how i feel this draft “should go down” like if i was picking in earnest for all 32 teams, this is what i would do too.

    Cincy, take Young, get a vet to help you try a win now, thing, your team is pretty good on paper and a vet QB helps you make a run at winning now. Mixon’s contract will be up soon, you have some other players that really will be hard to keep if you wait, Green is about to hit the downhill part of his career. take a shot now, get Young.

    Washington, You the guy you felt was a franchise guy you just got last year. Replace Williams with Thomas, let Haskins have another shot. Thats a good OL since they did resign Scherff, they can grab a OG in the second and be set.

    Detroit, Okudah, said it before they need to replace Slay, thats all they really had int he secondary and without him they almost have to go big at CB.

    NYG, have their QB, have a decent D, need OL BAD, they take Wirfs

    We are left to choose Tua or Burrow. SD gets the left over.

    I know thats not how its going to happen but it makes clear sense to me and i was saying that months ago. I mean i guess it could happen, it happened when Clowney was taken first over all and when garrett was taken first overall. Its make comp;lete sense to me if Cincy did it too.

    • Mike E. says:

      Almost certainly won’t go down that way, but interesting. I have to say, it would be riveting to see what we’d do with both Burrow and Tua on the board.

    • bailbondmike says:

      I saw her mock before and like hers the most.

      • D says:

        Yeah we got Burrow, Josh Jones (who im a big favorite of) and Austin Jackson. Two bookend tackles and most insta ready QB in the draft. Thats definitely a good first round, and like i said thats pretty much where i am. In fact given her draft layout, i only slightly question that 26th pick, i mean Swift was on the board, so im iffy if i would have picked Jackson over Swift, and not tried to get Prince Tega in the second.

    • Ken says:

      I was more interested in the link to to the story about Elisha Cuthbert. She was one of my favorites after The Girl Nextdoor which is a totally underrated movie

  18. naplesfan2010 says:

    I also have a man-crush on Cynthia Frelund after reading her mock draft.

  19. D says:

    Went to the store yesterday and wasnt as bare so i think some of the panic purchasing is dying off. Even had bread, not the white bread, but wheat. So at least its just the fatties hoarding now 🙂

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      still completely out of TP and even napkins now, but yeah, at least they’ve stopped lining up at gas stations.

      • D says:

        Gasing up for painc of a virus that is supposed to keep you from going anywhere lol. Love that logic.

      • stangerx says:

        Think the whole country is stoked up now more or less. But maybe you can’t have enough TP.

      I mean that draft makes 100% sense becayse its based on 100% logical selecting process.

      Ken says:
      March 30, 2020 at 4:07 pm

      So you mean it doesn’t make sense 😁
      What scares me is it is 100% logical and it came from a woman! Sorry Herd

  21. Rockphin says:

    HA HA HA HA HA! Dumb asses!

    The Texans traded for left tackle Laremy Tunsil before negotiating a new deal. After giving up two first-round draft picks and a second-rounder to get Tunsil and receiver Kenny Stills from the Dolphins, the Texans now are backed into a corner.

    They have to do what it takes to get Tunsil signed to a long-term deal.

    It’s expected to take making Tunsil the highest-paid offensive lineman in the league.

    Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans’ initial offer averaged $18.5 million per year. Tunsil’s counteroffer is “significantly higher,” per Wilson.

    Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson signed a four-year, $72 million extension in November, with his $18 million per year average leading all offensive linemen. Johnson received $55.8 million in guarantees.

    Tunsil, who is under contract for this season at $10.35 million, is seeking a deal averaging more than $20 million per season, according to Wilson.

    The Texans have roughly $35 million in cap space, the second-most in the league behind only the Browns, according to overthecap.com.

    • D says:

      It was the only reason i thought the trade was good for us. He was going to need a big ass contract in the middle of us rebuilding and that would have been a big boulder to navigate around. Also the haul we got was pretty massive.

    • stangerx says:

      Always been on the lines of having a guy in a contract year just means if you keep him you are paying his market FA value.

  22. Rockphin says:

    Ken, that is one of those “click bate” articles. The same ones that always have a picture of a hot girl and the “headline” “This thing that all cheaters have in common”

    the last one I saw with Elisha Cuthbert was “why no one in Hollywood will work with Elisha Cuthbert anymore”

    Then it is a “slide show” and you have to click through 20 pages of adds / BS to get to the BS story.
