Which is very important if we think our "D" might lose a step.
I disagree. I think Devin Thomas will be the #2 WR, and thus a starter. Zorn has already expressed his intent to make Randle El the slot receiver. I don't think Anthony Mix, James Thrash, or even Malcolm Kelly for that matter will beat out Devin for the flanker spot.

I voted Brooks b/c everyone else is up in the air right now. No one can be 100% who will be where. Brooks has the edge on Frosty and when it comes to nailbiters late in the fourth, we are going to be glad we picked him up.

I agree. Its a lock that, ready or not, one of the receivers that we picked in the 2nd is going to be out on the field with Moss. ARE is going to the slot or worse, if height is a major factor in the plans of this new offense.

There is zero chance that the team is going to stress the importance of tall receivers in this new offense and start the incumbent WR's who aren't taller than 5'10''. Also this offense is new to all the Skins WR's so Moss and ARE are going to start on the same page of the playbook that the rookies will.

Prepared or not, Thomas or Kelly is the number two WR going into the season without question.


So my choice is Thomas because ultimately the Skins choose him first so they must of thought he was a better fit as receiver.

without a question in my mind will ARE be a slot reciever. Thats what he is. To think he was ever or ever will be a legitamate #2 reciever is just dumb. One of the taller guys (Kelly or Thomas) will be #2 for sure as of now, but I wouldnt be surprised to see Moss line up @ #2 and thomas or kelly at #1.

Well, the slot WR is pretty much self explanatory, but "#1" and "#2" basically just describe who is more of the go to guy. Technically it's the flanker and the split end. The flanker is usually the larger WR, and is also referred to as the "Z." He lines up behind the line of scrimmage to avoid getting jammed. The split end, or "X" lines up on the line of scrimmage.

I could see Thomas and Moss rotating the flanker/split end duties. Sometimes it benefits Moss to line up behind the line of scrimmage so he can have a few extra steps to juke the corner. He's so small it's tough for him to out-physical larger CBs.

The funny thing is, until someone proves otherwise, Chris Cooley is our #1 pass catcher. His durability and consistency are awesome.

Re: Which rookie will have the most impact in 2008?

thomas has the most potential, brooks is the most likely...

davis is probably the safest pick, but as a #2 TE, i don't think he'll see tons of action unless cooley gets hurt.

Re: Which rookie will have the most impact in 2008?

Guys...regarding my "punter is the only starter" comment...I really doubt a rookie starts the season as a WR.
It is Moss and ARE to start....with the rookies appearing in 3 Wide Receiver sets only.
They just wont have the proper experience in taking on NFL CB's one on one.
Maybe by mid-season they will shift one of the guys to start....but that is very soon to psychologically bench ARE.
Don't underestimate his ability....he is pretty good and it is doubtful he will easily be replaced by a rookie.

I do agree that next year one of the rookies may become the #1 or #2 WR.
But the play of a #3 receiver, though they may get 400 yards a few TD's, isn't as big as a improvement as a potentially great punter over a poor one.

Tell any other team that their #1 reciever is a TE... lol. For all you who think Cooley is overrated, put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Re: Which rookie will have the most impact in 2008?

I voted for Devin Thomas because I think he will be the #2 receiver and Antwaan Randle El will move back to the slot where he excels. After reading all the posts, Brooks might have the most immediate impact because he will be the starting punter and rookie wide receiver typically take time to develop.

Re: Which rookie will have the most impact in 2008?

I went with Reinhart because we're bound to have injuries on the offensive line. Shoot Heyer had an impact last season and he wasn't even drafted so this kid might be the real deal. He could battle with Kendall and might very likely beat him out as the season progresses if he doesn't do it right out of the gate. He may also play multiple positions and with this lines injury history that could be a big asset. Maybe it's just wishful thinking because we need help along the O-line.
