slow WR's are like fat chicks, they aren't useless, but you are always looking for a better option.
Ever hear of HOLMES and HILL? I have heard they have pretty good speed! What say you? Err the key to a Ground and Pound attack is mired in several things not just speed! Speed is a a component but without blocking not much will help!! By the way Turner did run a 40 at 4.58 at his pro day at 225 pounds! Not too shabby I'd say!
The Dolphins answered a desire for a big wide receiver by drafting Southern Calís Patrick Turner with their third-round selection in the 74th NFL Draft on Sunday.
Turner is a 6-foot-5 1/8, 225-pound wideout who had 138 catches for 1,752 yards and 17 touchdowns with the Trojans and comes out of a pro-style offense. He had 49 receptions for 741 yards and 10 TDs as a senior.
Although he ran a pedestrian 4.63 40-yard dash, Turner turned heads at the USC Pro Day by catching everything that was thrown his way and he improved to a 4.58 40 at that workout.
