Draft Season: Episode 3- Wide Receivers
In this episode of the Tape Heads: Draft Season podcast, hosts Bob Wischusen and Greg Cosell discuss the expectations of Wide Receivers at the Combine. Some coaches would love to see helmets and pads added to running routes and for time. Greg says teams look for vertical receivers, which doesn't come from being fast. Players have been more athletic and explosive with so many training advances, but that may not always transfer to football. Teams are putting together offenses that use WR's in several different ways, so the position needs to be more versatile than ever. We evaluate Garrett Wilson, Jameson Williams, Treylon Burks, Drake London, Chris Olave, George Pickens, Jahan Dotson, David Bell, Justyn Ross, and Khalil Shakir. Greg looks at the occasions when a Combine performance is disappointing and how teams can still see positives from a player. We wrap up with which NFL teams are in the market for these WR's.The Tape Heads Podcast is part of the NFL Podcast Network.
