you guys are missing a couple of important factors.
if you look at the depth chart again, you will notice that thrash is the backup to Gardner and Jacobs is the backup to coles.
gardner and thrash, like art monk will be our motion receivers. To be the motion receiver, you need to be smart, you need to have the physical tools to run all pass routes. both thrash and gardner are smart(good route runners), have good size(big enough to go over the middle all day) and they have the speed to burn people deep.
Coles and Jacobs, like Gary Clark, will be the on the line WR. they have the skills to make a catch and take it to the endzone. coles wouldnt last a game if he had to consistently go over the middle.
3rd WR: will be thrash or jacobs depending on situation. thrash give you the ability to go over the middle on third and short downs. jacobs give you the speed and quickness for third and long downs. Wow how good was ricky sanders...
I'm not a big fan of thrash, but he will be where brunell expects him to be every play. thats very important.
