Which Current NFL Receiver Is Best for Us?

Considering the free agents and most rumored trade possibilities, which current NFL receiver do you think is the best for the Redskins?

Now this could mean someone who you project to be the perfect #1 receiver and slide a current WR on our team to #2, it could mean the perfect #2 with Moss staying at #1, etc.

Case in point, TO Killa makes the point that Bryant Johnson is a good fit because he believes we don't a top receiver, all we need is a solid possession guy.

Now, when making your pick disregard trade implications, salary cap. This is simply about what WR, if we dropped him right into our current roster, would have the most success on our team and in be the best option to help the team win.

So right now the front runners would be Chad Johnson, Roy Williams, Javon Walker, Bryant Johnson, DJ Hacket, Bernard Berrian, Earnest Wilford, Malcom Kelly, Limas Sweed, Jordy Nelson, and Devin Thomas.

Out of that group I'd like to take a shot at Roy Williams. He's the most proven, still in his prime, and we wouldn't have to give up a first and a third to get him. After that Javon Walker since he has WCO experience, Elite WR experience, and still might be in his prime. Plus he would only cost us the value of whatever we sign him for.

Kelly, Sweed, Nelson, and Thomas aren't currently in the NFL

Re: Which Current NFL Receiver Is Best for Us?

of all those guys I'd have to say williams. He's got the size we lack and outstanding athleticism. He's a very versatile, fast, physical receiver.

Re: Which Current NFL Receiver Is Best for Us?

If there is a chance to get Chad Johnson, we get him. The trio of Randle el, Moss, and Johnson would cause nightmares. Not to mention Cooley and the run game. How do you stop that? Also why no Randy Moss

Actually I'd go so far to argue that on average you only get 3 out of 4 of those guys per game given the history of injuries among Moss and Randle El.

Re: Which Current NFL Receiver Is Best for Us?

Roy Williams without a doubt. I have loved the guy since he came into the league. He is big and physical and is probably in the group right under the top guys. If healthy he'd be our #1 by a long shot. Move Santana to #2 in 2-wide and the slot in 3-wide with ARE at #2 and I think we have a good to great corps. The rest of the guys are all pieces, and some good at that but Wiliams is the one who could be a stud if used right.

I am ignoring CJ because if given the choice between him and Williams then I'd take the slightly less talented but less of a distraction guy 10 times out of 10.

Ha ha, I can see it now. Moss deep post, Roy with the 15 yard dig, Randle El with the drag, and Cooley to the corner.

Re: Which Current NFL Receiver Is Best for Us?

It's a toss up between Johnson and Williams. I'm leaning towards to Bryant Johnson because I think he is a better downfield blocker. Both are great route runners and would be great here. As for Chad, he is one of my favorite players and I love watching him play. But for someone else.

Re: Which Current NFL Receiver Is Best for Us?

CJ fitz or williams are the best options... draftees aren't proven, and johnson/wilford didn't really flash much as starters.

i still like CJ, but roy might be an easier fit. chemistry, contract and trade value vs on field production really favors him the most. the question posed asked us to ignore most of that, and in that case, CJ is clearly a step ahead of the rest.

Re: Which Current NFL Receiver Is Best for Us?

Roy Williams, head & shoulders above the rest. He is a true #1, big, physical, fast, a threat everywhere on the field. The guy missed 3 games in 2007 (the fourth was due to the final game not meaning anything), 3 games in 2005 and 2 in his rookie season. Hardly a major injury concern. If we need to give up a 2nd rounder or less and give him a new contract, do it.

I am torn between Hackett and Johnson. Hackett is dynamic and possibly a superstar about to happen, but the recurring ankle injury is a concern. Johnson is bigger & stronger, not as dynamic, but stays in the line-up. He can be a solid red zone threat or a #2 / possesion type WR. Due to our situation (Zorn, WCO, Vinny's comments about "players the coaches are familiar with"), indicates that Redskins 1 will be landing at midnight in Seattle (it may stop in Chicago first to get Briggs).
