Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>Alpha WR's
MahomesMagic 11:58 AM 02-27-2024
Thought I would create a thread dedicated to the Alpha WR's as there has been a lot of attention already on getting a better Mecole or MVS or tiny 140 lb slot WR's.



Alphas can't be stopped, you can only pray to contain them.


Malik Nabers




Adonai Mitchell

Adonai Mitchell is no stranger to Georgia fans. 2nd & 18, 8:16 left in the fourth quarter, Stetson Bennett drops back and completes a 40-yard touchdown strike to Mitchell over the outstretched Alabama defender to garner Georgia the lead in the national title.
It's arguably the biggest catch in program history, and according to sources, Mitchell is only scratching the surface of his stardom. It's virtually every day at this point, Mitchell will have people within the building raving about some miraculous catch he's made, or how he caught 80% of the footballs during 11on11 scrimmages.





Watch as Adonai takes over the game and has to be held repeatedly to avoid further embarrassment.

Dont understand the Mitchell hype at all. That's a 4th round draft pick in my eyes.
Wins in similar ways.

Doesn't quite do it as well.

There are some positives. He's very fluid for his size, with great body control, and great hands.

But he damn sure isn't a separator.

I'm not a huge fan either. I think he's more of a 2nd rounder even at 32.

I also agree that Pickens was a better prospect minus the character concerns.

I thought Pickens was a 1st rounder.

Now if you want to talk about weird, MahomesMagic didn't like Pickens much. Said he wasn't a WR1.

But he loves Mitchell? Top 15 player?

I don't get it at all.

"Doesn't quite do it as well" is an understatement of epic proportions. Pickens displayed excellent body control and a real knack for fighting for the ball. While similar in size, Pickens displayed some fantastic athletic ability when the ball was in the air and seemed to all of a sudden become "more athletic" depending on the degree of difficulty of the catch.

There is simply nothing in Mitchell's "tape" that exhibits what Pickens displayed.

I expect actual NFL teams will draft Adonai higher than where Pickens went.

Fluid for his size? Sure, i'll accept that. He does pluck the ball our of the air, so yeah, good hands.

But damn, not only does he not separate, he's not a contested catch guy either. Not impressed with his body control, has some wasted motion with limbs flailing around. Not a burner, obviously. Clearly not a YAC guy either.

You'd draft him hoping he becomes Hopkins. And lord knows most WR's with that skillset never become Hopkins.

If he ends up in the NFL as some guy who can read zones and do that savvy Kelce/Hopkins shit to get open, ok fine. But damn that's a long shot.

Me? Im banking on athletic ability and that "IT" factor when i draft a WR.

But why?

Pickens had waaaaaay better "tape".

You don't have to believe me.

Watch what happens.

How about Keon Coleman?! I think he's the best "Alpha" WR we have a shot at!

He's young too! What really sells me on the kid is go watch his returns! ...see how he instinctually makes the immediate move after catching the ball to shake initial defenders and take off up field, like he doesn't have to think about it or he's seeing the play in slow motion. Especially slick for a 6-4 guy. Fuck! Our WRs can't even catch a pass when they're wide open, this kid's effortlessly one or two chess moves ahead of the field before he even touches the ball. His natural instincts and athletic ability really shine in those plays!

I like Keon more than Franklin or Worthy. But Franklin will come in more polished for his role. Keon you have to be patient to get him to a possession 1.

I donít think size has to do with alpha. Alpha has to do with your attitude and drive. Is tyreek an alpha? Absolutely. He wants the ball in the big moment. Old Steve smith for the panthers. Yes sir. He wants to win and will fight to get it done. I donít want a loser mentality at wr. And the fact that Texas kept drawing up plays for Adonai Mitchell in the big moments shows you something. They didnít go to worthy and in some big games worthy dropped passes in big moments. Can the player handle the moment and have the confidence and drive to win and put that work in? If so, heís an alpha, no matter his size. I donít see those alpha traits in worthy. I wish I did.

Johnny Wilson is the size and Alpha we need.

Couch-Potato 10:57 AM 02-29-2024
Ok, let's go Alpha!

1. WR Keon Coleman
2. WR Xavier Legette
3. RB/WR Malachi Coley
4. RB Braelan Allen
5. TE Theo Johnson

^That's a physically dominant draft class!

Yeah, everyone trying to find the next MVS or Mecole or Skyy Moore when the only WR we drafted that is good in the last 6 years is a beast in Rice.

What an absolute fucking load of shit :-)

Also, other than DJ, I was probably the biggest Rice fan on here, so there's that.
