This draft class is flush with talented receivers.  The question is do you want to know the top ten or the top twenty wide outs?  The diminutive and injury prone Maryland offensive weapon Stefon diggsDiggs might not be a dynasty owners first choice, but he might be their best choice a bit later in the draft.   Unfortunately does not have a lot of game tape to view, but I did watch his efforts against Virginia and Florida International to get a better idea of what he brings to the National Football League.  Here are my thoughts:

WR Stefon Diggs, Maryland 6’ 195 lbs.

Cons: This wide out is not the healthiest of athletes.  He missed six games due to a broken leg in 2013 and missed two games with a lacerated kidney in 2014.  On the bright side, these were not joint or connective tissue issues.  Because the receiver is not that big or physical, he gets knocked around a lot all over the field.  Diggs has skinny legs on top of a smaller frame and overly excitable. This inability to contain his emotions spilled over to the gridiron with a one game suspension that got caused by his contact with an official.  He is also more of an athlete than a technically sound player, which really is clear when he runs rounded pass routes.  Read More »

Anquan Boldin is starting to look very lonely in the Emerald City.  Todd Heap was a salary cut and signed with the Cardinals.  Derrick Mason was a salary cut, as well, and found himself looking at several suitors: the Jets, the Titans, and possibly the Ravens.  If Mason doesn’t come back, second round pick Torrey Smith may well be thrown into the starting receiver mix.  Yes, he is a Maryland Terrapin, but he brings more to the table than fellow former Terrapin Darrius Heyward-Bey.
