    What proven talent do we have? An injured Santonio? Braylon not signed? Kerley he's good but not scaring any defenses...Any proven talent or potential?
    Hopefully we get lucky and find another young Chrebet out of nowhere...

    When did I ever use the term "proven" you cant deny Hill, Kerley and Holmes have talent and a high ceiling when on the field together.

    I posted about Zach Rogers as soon as the Jets signed him.

    Mike Mayock had him pegged as one of his top sleeper prospects, so, it's not that surprising that he is flashing early on.

    Lets see if he is still on the roster when week 1 rolls around.

    I don't see the similarities between Rogers and Welker. Rogers doesn't have the kind of shiftiness or quickness that Welker has. Also the highlight reel doesn't show him being utilized the way the Patsies utilize Welker.

    Rogers appears to be a player that the Jets can definitely use, but not in the same manner as Welker.

    Zach is a total beast against Jade Clowney and the Gamecocks:

    Lets not a polish a turd into a diamond you guys. Zach is not as talented or special as Patterson, Hunter or D. Rogers. Don't feed me this - wow what a steal! If he was such a god damn steal, he'd have played ahead of the other guys.

    He's a smart pick up that MIGHT become a depth chart guy. Jordan White was supposed to be that guy too last year.

    I wasn't saying you said it, it's just that we have very little proven talent and a lot of hopes and maybes, which is great if we find another Chrebet, but it has been awhile...I have hope for hill, but he is not a given yet...I like kerley, Holmes is injured and will be for awhile...

    He's a Undrafted Free Agent with potential. I wouldn't call him a turd.

    Would love to see him as our #4 wr this year

    Anybody have stats on how often MM has gone 4 wide in the past?

    With no one proven at TE it would be more likely to just have 4 WR's out than to try and motion a TE from alongside the OT out to the slot I'd think

    I was borrowing the expression more than anything. The point was - let's not get carried away. He played with premier talent around, and i'd wager coverage probable reflected that.

    A lot of times, UDFAs work out. If your looking to make at team at WR, you look for the teams who are weakest at the position, maximizing your chances.
    That's why the Jets ended up with him.
    He comes in with a great chance, smart, played in a pro offense, mature, and according to his coaches practices at 110%
    Plus he plays faster than Jordan White.
    This league is littered with WRs that weren't highly regarded in college playing roles as 3rd & 4th wideouts.

    Yes he gets free and some great catches but in two videos I didn't see him break or dodge a single tackle. At 180 he could get creamed in the NFL without some elusiveness.

    One of Peyton's favorite W/R's was Marvin Harrison at 175 pounds.. We shall see how the Zach attack makes out in camp..

    Tin what are you talking about. His shuttle time was just like Victir Cruz, and he is 6ft.

    6 ft is not short for a WR, that's actually prototypical size, 6'0" - 6'3" or there about.

    That being said there are plenty of very productive WR's that are under 6 ft - too many to list in fact.

    He is intriguing but it's the injury bug that worries me the most. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
