I see it’s time for the “waah, college football spread offenses aren’t preparing players for the NFL” horseshit to make the rounds again.
The first round has been more miss than hit the last three years at wide receiver. Corey Davis, Mike Williams and John Ross were selected in the top nine last April and they combined for 24 games, 45 catches, 465 yards and no touchdowns as rookies. The Bengals are considering shifting Ross to defensive back. Corey Coleman, Will Fuller, Josh Doctson and Laquon Treadwell were taken in the first round in 2016 after six went in Round 1 in 2015 — Amari Cooper, Kevin White, DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor, Breshad Perriman and Phillip Dorsett. Of those 13, there’s probably not a true No. 1 in the bunch.
Has anyone told this guy that Cooper and Agholor played in pro-style offenses in college?
Maybe Mike Vrabel needs to ask for a refund of some of that $10 million. Or spend it on a developmental league… like that’s gonna happen.
