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.

Irony of calling WRs an alpha and shitting on skinnier WRs while stanning Zay Flowers who is 59 and had to work his ass off just to put on weight to get to 180 lbs :-)

It's just so odd.

Dude is acting like 2 of the best rookie WRs weren't tiny last year.

Conveniently, can't find a take from him on either guy last year.

I'm not completely against this sentiment, but hard to argue that Tyreek wasn't amazing in Andy's offense and that he's partial to smaller, speedier, separators traditionally.

Because he is good.


If you are a small WR I need some Wow.

Zay is a wow player.


QJ last year was big but a clumsy oaf.

So guys that are small can be good?

Then stop pretending that they aren't good simply because they're small you disingenuous bastard.

Your cognitive dissonance is showing.

Yes, Tyreek was the most dynamic separator of all time and Veach traded him.


Please don't mention little Worthy or frail Franklin in the same sentence as the Cheetah.

DUH!

But if you are going to draft a WR that is tiny early they better WOW me.


None of the small or frail guys you are promoting for the 1st round pick are wow players.

BTW, I had a 1st round grade on Hollywood Brown because he was dynamic.

I was too high on little KJ a few years ago so now you better be a Flowers or Addison if you are small.

Not pedestrian.

You're conveniently ignoring the second part of that post.

Worthy is a similar prospect to Hollywood. That's a good comparison, thanks.

Let's define Alpha WR for a minute.

Ok, so just to be a bonafide #1 in the NFL you pretty much need 75 receptions, 1000 yards, and 6 TDs. That means you'd finish in the top 32 in each of the major statistical categories for a WR.

One way to quickly narrow that list is to see who's done it in consecutive seasons. If I pick 3 consecutive seasons as my Alpha benchmark, adjust for injury, then I should get a nice list.

Then here is your Alpha List:

A.J. Brown
CeeDee Lamb
Cooper Kupp
Davante Adams
Ja'Marr Chase
Justin Jefferson
Keenan Allen
Mike Evans
Stefon Diggs
Tyreek Hill

Chance to get 3 in a row in 2024 and become Alpha's by this definition
Amon-Ra St. Brown
Brandon Aiyuk
DeVonta Smith


You know who doesn't profile like any of these guys? :-)

Worthy is bigger, so that's true.

And Flowers isnt even a deep threat or outside boundary guy. Hes mostly a slot WR who beats teams in the intermediate level of the field.

He was never a 1st rd WR to me. Id take Jayden Reed over him all day
