I also agree on having that big reciever not that we couldn't win without one, but it seem's to me that Ramsey likes the big guy's he had a lot of success with McCant's in fact it's safe to say he was his favorite reciever that's why it was kind of ironic that Gibb's didn't get him on the field, there are some very big reciever's in this draft I would love to really be able to break down some game film on a few of these guy's to really be able to gauge their talent, one thing I do know is William's has a phenomonal set of hand's, in fact he's a guy who need's only 1 hand to catch the ball couple that with his size and he could be a very unique and dominating force in the NFL.
Yes, I noticed you were from Hopatcong. There are a few North Jersey guys on this site I think. I am originally from Philly but I have lived in Hackettstown for about 4 years. My wife is from NJ so I agreed to move up here. I went from Birds country to big blue country...

I just think a big WR makes it easier on a QB. The WR has to be good also, not just big. Good point about Ramsey liking McCants best. he clearly had a good raport with Darnerian, and maybe that's becasue Ramsey was confident in being able to hit that big frame without the pressure to be perfect.

I don't think anyone is trying to say that you can't win with small WR's, just that a physically dominating WR can sometimes bail out a QB where a smaller guy can't.

If USC played the Miami's, Florida State's and top SEC teams every year than I would feel like you do about Williams.
Oh man... i thought i would have only seen this logic in the national championship argument. But just like that argument, it doesn't hold water when it comes to the individual player. SC has never had a weak out of conference schedule b/c of the perception of the Pac-10... in fact, SC had the toughest rated schedule in the land during Mike's first year, so you can't say he didn't face top-notch college defenders. He faced the likes of Carlos Rogers, Marlin Jackson, Terence Newman, Marcus Trufant, and Ricky Manning Jr. to name a few. If you're only as good as the competition you face, I guess BMW is pretty damn good.

You can say all you want about bad Pac-10 defenses (look at the SEC, who only plays itself- they rarely ever schedule worth out-of-conference games away b/c they lose when they do... the only argument the SEC has is the "we should be able to schedule Div. 2AA Sisters of the Poor U because everyone in our own conference is so much better than the entire country). Regardless of how the Pac's doing, SC plays a tough schedule every year due to the OOC and bowl games.

Michigan, Oklahoma, Iowa, and Auburn (twice) all had fans who questioned the legitimacy of SC b/c of "weak" Pac-10 play before playing the Trojans the past few seasons. The only fans who respected us were VA-Tech's. I don't mean to sound arrogant (Lord knows college ball is cyclical and we're not going to be on top forever... just ask Canesfan hehehe- j/k bro), but I just get irked when the legitimacy of our program or players is questioned due to being a part of the Pac-10.

I agree with him, especially if he is calling a good game and has the ground attack going. Guys are going to get open wether they are 5'10 or 6'5.

Hines Ward, Marvin H, Torry Holt are all small guys...who is better then them right now?
AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH Happy Memories...........the Smurfs..........

Re: Small WR

As long as they catch the ball they can be 4ft 10 or 6ft 10 for all i care.

Clark, Sanders and Monk were a great mix of hit, strength and speed, but all 3 had great hands and that is why they were so good.

That's yet to be seen since 15 years ago. Lets get some size.

Re: Small WR

What about the Titans...........I heard they are looking at WR, and the Bucs too.......

I hope they will leave a WR for us.......but most mocks have us going defense in the draft....'course that's just speculation too....
