Greg Jennings - WR - Western Michigan - 5'11" 190 lbs

Jennings is a player that is impressive. He is one of the few players at the position with no glaring weaknesses. He is a very good athlete with the foot quickness, balance and agility to make plays once he has the ball in his hands. While he lacks elite explosiveness and speed, Jennings runs sharp routes and has the ability to turn the cornerback around. This enables him to get better separation than most receivers who have better timed speed. While he is going to make a lot of big plays in the NFL, Jennings will get caught from behind more than he is used to. He runs hard with the ball and fights for extra yards until he is on the ground, and does a good job of blocking his man out of the play. Overall, Jennings is the type of receiver who usually ends up slipping a bit in the draft because he lacks the great height or elite 40-yard dash time that teams usually focus on. However, his athleticism will combine with his football intelligence and instincts to let him contribute sooner than nearly all the other receivers available this year. In the end, he will become a very good starting receiver that will make big plays when running after the catch and as a punt returner.

Well since we cut Horn we might as well get him to take his place.

This guy graded out the same overall score (6.3) as Santonio Holmes. And he can be had much later/cheaper. Hadn't really heard of him till last night when Mel Kiper suggested him for us.

He is listed in ESPN's Draft Guide as the 16th best receiver in the draft. He has been labeled an overachiever, and is projected to be drafted in the fourth round. Here is the complete write up-

++ Instincts
+ Profiles as a sub-package receiver who has excellent upside as a punt return specialist. Dominated in college thanks to standout instincts and toughness. Quick and has adequate speed. When he finds daylight, has a second gear, excellent body control, balance and ability to change direction. Runs sharp routes and quickly gets out of breaks. Can seperate and has the wiggle and vision to be a threat in space.

-- Measurables
- Short and lacks bulk, strength and elite speed. Doesn't have the leaping ability of size to make vertical plays. Will have trouble getting off the line against bigger DB's. Didn't play against top competition.

(Compares to) Shaun McDonald of the Rams.

5'11", 195 lbs. 4.52 40

No way!! This guy sucks. He couldn't catch a cold. He'll be a total bust.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet but this guy could be the next Chris Horn.
