    Treadwell is like a bunch of heavier receivers with big hands. I think people get too cute with the WR comps. Boldin, Marshall, Dez, Nicks, Crabtree etc. they're all functionally the same thing. They score TDs and work the intermediate routes. Top ten pick.

    QB's:

    Paxton Lynch = Matthew Stafford (Not the perfection that was Stafford the prospect; basically what Stafford is now)

    Christian Hackenberg = Jay Cutler (same as above)

    Carson Wentz = Mariota/Sam Bradford. I can't really explain the Bradford thing, just something about watching him roll out looks like Bradford to me.

    Jared Goff = Matt Ryan with better feet

    Some I've been chewing on for awhile. Comps are inexact/imperfect, a lot of these have more to do with playing style or measurables than career forecasting.

    Teddy Bridgewater - Ceiling: Tom Brady w/functional athleticism; Floor: 2011-Present Alex Smith
    David Fales - Ceiling: Drew Brees; Floor: Matt Flynn

    Sammy Watkins - developed Torrey Smith
    Mike Evans - Vincent Jackson
    Donte Moncrief - Julio Jones

    Seantrel Henderson - Bryant McKinnie (although he probably won't even reach McKinnie at his peak)
    Morgan Moses - Marcus McNeil

    Dee Ford - Brandon Graham
    Khalil Mack - Ahmad Brooks
    Ryan Shazier - Sean Taylor playing WLB

    Dom Easley - Jay Ratliff
    Louis Nix - Vince Wilfork

    And he was St. Louis' only consistently dangerous offensive player. They didn't have another player with even 500 receiving yards that year, and he had Chris Miller and Mark Rypien throwing to him. Gotta be one of the most underrated great individual years of all time.
    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Caulibflower again.
    Yeah his career was pretty underrated. 15 catches 210 yards against Miami the last game of the 1995 season, mid-way through the 4th Quarter he took himself out of the game. It was Don Shula's last game as Miami's coach. Game was out of reach and he didn't think it was fair for him to try and break a record with guys who clearly weren't competing on the other side.

    Probably better to add a disclaimer that says, at a similar stage.

    Kelvin Benjamin = Calvin Johnson is my comparison. I post all photos for my comparisons, I don't know what everyone else is doing but it's killing the thread.

    That image reminds me a lot of Jonathan Baldwin!
