YOOOAdrian’s 2010 NFL Preview- WR Rankings

  • The divas of the NFL are next.  Here’s how I judge a wide receiver.
  • Hands- Soft hands, not catching the ball with the body, having the concentration to catch a pass with one hand.
  • Route Running- Like a pitcher tipping pitches, for the 1st 8 yards a good route runner makes every route look the same.  You need to deceive the corner to get separation, don’t necessarily have to be fast.  Having the field awareness to know where the 1st down is.  Come towards the ball, don’t wait for it, catching a ball at its highest point.  Find open areas in zone coverage, finding open lanes after the catch to get the coveted YAC.
  • Body Control- Knowing where the sideline is, adjusting to a poorly thrown pass, setting yourself to turn up field after making the catch.
  • Versality- There’s possession receivers, and there’s deep threats.  Similar to what I was saying about a running back, guys that can score in the red-zone and from anywhere on the field are gems.
