In the receiver dept. what we need is a receiver, regardless of height, who gets open in the endzone inside the redzone and takes some of the coverage away from Cooley. Height is helpful but not determinative. It certainly comes in handy on corner fades and the occasional jump ball, but, other than that, it is short area separation, not height, that is most important.

For whatever reason, neither Moss nor ARE seem particularly suited for the redzone (not sure what their stats there are - but would not be surprised to see the majority of their TD's come from 20 yards or beyond). But M. Harrison, who is not gigantic by any means seems to do well in the short field, ditto Steve Smith.

Not sure where we find the red-zone Cooley compliment that we need. But whereever we look, we should not say that only WR's 6' 2" and over need apply.
No one is saying a small wide receiver can't succeed. Look at Moss a couple years ago. What people are saying, me included, is that you need a tall compliment to a small speedy WR. You mentioned Steve Smith, so look at these numbers:

2006 Panthers 15th in passing yards...had a 6'4" Keyshawn Johnson that caught 70 balls.
2007 Panthers 29th in passing yards...2nd best receiving threat on the team was TE Jeff King.
It's no coincidence that the Panthers passing game went to pot after losing a large target like Keyshawn. Of course the injured Delhomme hurt too, but Smith had 83 catches in 06, and 87 in 07.

You raise a good point about Harrison, however, Peyton could have a crew of midgets and he would make it work. Harrison and Wayne are some of the best route runners in the league.

Still point remains, we're not saying to never pick up small wr's again, but we need one due to the fact that we have small wr's now. They compliment each other. Will it be the end of the world if we don't get one? No, but it will free up Moss and Randle El to do other routes and be more effective for their sizes and our team concept.

Can't coach height & hops. It's a match-up problem that many teams can't answer if they don't have elite CBs. When you are inside the red-zone everything shrinks, but if you have a big target that can physically outmatch the CBs to the edge, the CBs have to play more outside to defend the fade or out. This which means the zones inside get just a bit bigger to squeeze that stop or slant in there. In addition to being able to throw the fade or stop.

I've looked at some of the red-zone stats for Harrison & Holt (in response to another thread a couple of months ago) their production is good. However they are both Pro Bowl caliber receivers and great route runners, Moss and ARE are not.

IMO we need to see if Mix can develop, even if it's just in the red-zone. From what I read a while back on Mix the folks in NY didn't want to see him go but he only plays X, same as Plaxico so he was pretty much stuck there with no chance to get on the field.

I would love to see Roy Williams here for a 2nd rounder, but it won't happen. Another team will come up with a sweeter deal than we can, and I wouldn't give up a #1 for him.

Too many bums, and only 2 good ones. And the two who are good are small. The long list does nothing for me. We shouldn't care how many guys we have, we should care who we have who's capable of making serious plays.
Damn..that's a lot of bums!

He confirmed he isn't going anywhere for now. We'll see how he feels about that as the draft nears.

Why do we keep talking about Wide Receivers that are not available?? Give it a rest. Stick to free agency.

However in all seriousness take a look at him DirtySkin21. The guys huge for a WR. I thought that he looked like a TE in the first few pics:
YouTube - D.J Hackett Tribute

The guy has the right combination of production and size IMO.

So do you not want Hackett because of the money, or because he's "only 6'2"?
