2015 WR Draft Class: Worst since..?

Recommended Posts

Jaelen Strong was a massive bust for Houston. Lazy, out of shape, slow, didn't run good routes, complained about PT - he was good at jump balls, that's it.

Keith Mumphrey was a solid ST gunner, but that's it. He was cut after sexual assault allegations at MSU became public knowledge, so good riddance.

The one with Desean Jackson was much worse IIRC..

WE TOOK THE FIRST WR IN THE DRAFT AND HIS NAME WAS DONNIE AVERY!

I really believe Amari Cooper would be a top ten WR if he didn't play for the Raiders. He has his drop issues, but the Raiders really make no effort to get him the ball.

Carr and Cooper have very little chemistry whatsoever despite playing three years together, and Raiders have an incompetent staff that doesn't make it a priority to get the ball in his hands or to move Amari around the formation.

Really, the one time this year that we saw Amari play a lot in the slot, he destroyed the Chiefs for 200+ yards.

Incompetent coaching hurts much more than incompetent players.

What happened with Dorial Green-Beckham?  I thought he was an interesting prospect leading up to the draft.

Few solid names there such as Cooper, Fuchness, Aglohor, Crowder, Diggs but a few busts as well (White for one).

Think the Titans traded him to Philly, and he flunked out. Guy coasted by on some physical skills, but was lazy and wasn't really talented when compared to the speed of the pros.

Yet another size/speed prospect that failed out. You'd think teams would learn after guys like Ramses Barden, Dwayne Jarrett or Jon Baldwin - these towering WRs don't really pan out if ALL they have is size and speed...

I would give it one more year.  Lets see if Kevin White can stay healthy.  Amari Cooper's performance last season seems uncharacteristic for him.  The Raiders were disappointing in general last year, lets see what they do this season.  Agholor and Adams seem like they're going to be good players for a long time.

I honestly think Cooper is going to go absolute ape  - this year. Gruden has already mentioned he believes Cooper should be a slot WR mostly, which is perfect for him. Gruden's system is going to make sure Coopers a ton of targets in a variety of ways.

AC/DC will be back!

Hopefully for Raiders fans, Gruden will get Carr and Cooper playing together and up to both of their potential.  In fact, with Gruden's help, Carr's ceiling should be almost as high as Teddy Bridgewater's before too long.   ;)

He is lazy and doesn't know how to run a route or how to remember a play.

not even the steelers could get a good WR with a high pick.. although coates did show a lot of promise at the start of last year..still surprised we traded him after 2 years
