    Everyone knows that The Jets are going to draft a WR. They just don't know when or whom, but what we do know is that The Jets are looking to add a "BIG" WR.

    Here are the "Big" Wideouts in this draft. I left out the 6'1 guys, although they could be included too.

    Charles Rogers-6'3 205- Michigan State 4.38 in 40

    Andre Johnson-6'3 220-Miami- 4.40 in 40

    Kelley Washington-6'3 225- Tenn-4.45 in 40

    Bryant Johnson- 6'2 215-Penn State- 4.4 in 40

    Tyrone Calico- 6'4 223-Midd Tenn St- 4.35 in 40

    Teyo Johnson-6'5 240-Stanford-4.61 in 40 (TE projection by many)

    Walter Young- 6'4 215-Illinois- 4.59 in 40

    Doug Gabriel-6'2 214-Central Florida-4.50 in 40

    Justin Gage- 6'4 217-Missouri-4.60 in 40

    Mike Bush-6'5 198-Wash St-4.69 in 40

    Ryan Hoag-6'2 200-Gustavus- 4.51 in 40

    Kassim Osgood-6'4 208-San Diego St- 4.60 in 40 ( I really like this guy better than alot of people do)

    Carl Morris-6'2 214-Harvard- 4.65 in 40

    Cecil Moore- 6'2 208-East Tennessee St-4.60 in 40

    Billy McMullen- 6'4 209-Virginia- 4.62 in 40

    Wilson Thomas- 6'5 207-Nebraska-4.63 in 40

    Travis Anglin- 6'4 192-Memphis-4.59 in 40

    James Adkisson-6'4 220-South Carolina-4.39 in 40

    Sam Collins-6'2 181-Alabama-4.50 in 40
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    I'm sure that there a few names that I left out. You could consider 6'1 guys as big wideouts too. This is just a small sample of what's available this year.

    I'll tell you this, The more, I read about and research certain players. The more, I like them. I happen to like Kassim Osgood. I know that there are alot of people that aren't high on him. You can't deny the level of production by him last year, 106 receptions. I think, he's worth a shot in the 5th or 6th round but that's just me, everyone has their own opinions.

    [b]From Boomersdraft.com - "Justin Gage had a great workout on Friday. Results: 6'4, 218 lbs.; 40 was 4.43-4.48; broad was 11'1"; vertical was 40.5"; 4.30 short shuttle; 6.72 3-cone; 11.39 60-yard shuttle. This kid can play the game, but there have long been questions about his playing speed and measureables. It certainly appears as if Friday's workout answered some of those questions. Gage is a likely mid round pick that could really surprise at the next level."
    [/b]

    This is the guy we need in the third round.....

    He never timed before this in the 40...the 4.6 time was OLD.

    If those numbers are true. That's extremely impressive. I know that sporting news had Gage going to us in the draft.

    Good Post, YJF.

    Well unless some blockbuster trade occurs, we can count out C-Rog, and AJ...

    My top 4 are

    1. Kelly Washington
    2. Tyrone Calico
    3. Bryant Johnson.
    4. Teyo Johnson

    These are the four guys I percieve as worthy of the 2nd rounder.

    However, if we decide to snatch a WR in round 3, none of these guys should be there. In which case we can should look towards

    1. Walter Young
    2. Carl Morris
    3. Osgood or McMullen.

    ----------------------
    After all is said and done though, I've got a gut feeling we get Washington.

    I din't realize there were so many big wideouts coming out this year. We ought to be able to come up with two maybe, especially with the extra 5th round pick.

    i didnt realize how fast calico was,no wonder you like this kid youngjetsfan.
    6'4 223-4.35 jesus.

    The WR pol is pretty big this year with some solid talent.

    YJF, names that have not been mentioned that meet our Criteria are

    Anquan Boldin
    Arnaz Battle

    Two guys from top tier programs. Guys we could pick up in the 4th , 5th round.

    We will come out of this draft with some WR's this year. I'm thinking at least 2 of them!!

    Another sleeper I like is Anton Page, Texas Tech!!

    He has very good hands and makes most of his plays around the goal line on the fade route. Great leaper. 4.48 40 time at 6 feet 5. A JUCO guy who was injured last year. If he gets the playing time who needs to show his potential. Could be a big time riser at the combine and TT workouts. Not afraid to go over the middle and take a hit. Can throw a pretty mean block!

    Also Mike Bush, Washington State.

    A bit skinny, but 6'6"!! Two-sport star, turning out for the Cougars basketball squad. Should step in and be a major TD threat in the red zone. Needs to add some weight to his lanky frame

    I can go on and on!!

    Ty Calico,........

    [img]http://users.adelphia.net/~leboss25/WR.htm55.jpg[/img]

    An all-Sun Belt Conference candidate in 2002 ... A panel of sportswriters and broadcasters voted unanimously his catch at Mississippi State as the Best Reception of the Year in 2000 ... Power cleans over 350 pounds, which is one of the top marks on the team ... Has five career 100-yard receiving games ... Began his Blue Raider career on defense at linebacker, but was switched back to his normal position of wide receiver later in the fall of 1998 ... Was a member of the Blue Raider basketball team in 1998. A terrific athlete who runs a 4.44/40 yd dash. Great size.

    [b]Blazing 4.33/40 at the combine. Isn't as physical as teams would like, look for Calico in round three[/b]

    I'll take Calico in round 2

  11. #11
    I only saw Calico play once, I heard that he does not want to block
    or go over the middle. Just not the physical presense that you expect someone of that size to be. I aso heard that he body catches alot. But he is fast that is for sure.

    I like McMullen in the 4th.

    Billy McMullen......Virginia 210lbs

    A tall possession receiver with 4.6 speed. Lacks the deep threat but is an experienced player who can leap with the best of them and catch the deep ball when needed. Uses his hands, doesn't let the ball hit his body. 38'' inch vertical jump. Athletic guy. 3rd, probably 4th rounder

    Dont get too excited about what these guys do in the combines. NFL game experience is the number one indicator of how well a player is. There are just too many promising young guys out of college who are complete busts (too many to name, the Jets ex players alone would prove this a valid point, aka- Blair, Johnny Mitch., Roger Vick, Johnny Lamb Jones, etc) and tons of no names who became stars (Jerry Rice?). Point being don&#39;t get too excited about a player until he has proven himself with NFL experience. Hyped up college stars wont guareentee you a Lombardi but proven athletes who perform week in and week out will bring home the bacon.

    Wouldn&#39;t it be great if we found a "sleeper" wideout in the fifth round that had an immediate impact this season (and was 6&#39;4")&#33;&#33;&#33; I&#39;d love to see the look on danny snydass&#39;s face.
