    Things like that are why Ted Thompson is the executive of the year.
    Im pretty sure Brett Favre is why Jones is ranked #64, not Ted Thompson.

      Roscoe is also on there, which I agree with. He would be such a great #3 if we had a legit #2. Here's to the draft...

        Joe Jurivicius

        And not this:
        Kevin Johnson
        Dennis Northcutt
        Quincy Morgan

        I love the new Browns era
        Kevin Johnson was the man. Whatever happened to him?

          Brett's part of the reason, but he wasn't the one sprinting past Champ Bailey or the one who put Jones into the situation that he was in.

          No GM can affect a player's natural ability. What they can do is diagnosis the potential for that player and create a situation for him to realize it. No draft expert, and most likely few other GMs, had Jones pegged as a player with a chance to make an impact in the NFL, but Thompson did.

            "and most likely few other GMs, had Jones pegged as a player with a chance to make an impact in the NFL, but Thompson did."

            Did you look at the teams draft boards and conclude this or was it an article you put to much stock into from a beat writer with no clue? Pretty bold statement.

              Jason Hill, Laurent Robinson, Yamon Figurs, and Jacoby Jones, all receivers, were taken in the 5 picks before the Packers selection of James Jones. Any team that wanted James Jones could have had him.

              I've been looking at your other posts... you need to get a clue.

                Dude he should be freakin awesome this year now that he has learned the system. He could be our Wes Welker except faster.

                  You listed 5 teams, but then said any team that wanted him could have? There are still 26 NFL teams that might have graded him around the 3rd round like Thompson how do you know?

                  And maybe those 4-5 WR's before Jones would have been just fine had they had a QB and system around them like Brett Favre? Favre was even making Koren Robinson look good despite missing some time from football aswell as a below average TE.

                  In the history of Brett Favre, almost every WR looked better than they should have been.

                    I think its pretty laughable how espn rated guys higher who are 6'3 225, like for some reason that makes you a better WR...Im not buying ANY list that has Torry Holt and Marvin Harrison both in the top 5 right now, not potential or how good they will be, but those guys are still top 5 wrs and even the best dbs in the game cannot cover them...The little things like route running, keeping your feet in bounds on a catch in the back of the endzone, and consistency should count for something...

                    And the fact that they put Braylon Edwards ahead of Chad Johnson for one year is beyond belief to me...Chad has been consistently putting up 1300 yds and 8 tds for the past 6 years straight, but your telling me one season for Braylon is enough to put him higher after he was struggling with drops not that long ago?

                    ESPN falls in love with hype too much because thats just plain ridiculous...And I also saw Michael Jenkins on this list, what has he done since he's been in the nfl to be on ANY list outside of a bust list? He's a 1st rd pick whose best season ever has been 500 yds and 4 tds, can someone explain why in the hell he should be anywhere near a list of nfl's best wrs?

                      But to point out the 10 drops on Owens and negate the fact that Randy had 9 is a little reckless on the journalist part.

                      The reason I say this is because T.O. is basically "known for drops" and Randy is "known for sure hands", but the margin of difference wasn't as big this past season.
                      They also point out the 17 drops in 2006 without saying that he played 3/4 of the season with a bad hand injury. By the way, I agree that Moss is better than Owens.

                        Roscoe still needs work. He could be a great #3, he has the ability, but you don't see it nearly enough, and I'm not pinning too much of that on the lack of a #2 presence. Josh Reed, who obviously doesn't have the potential of Roscoe, has been the better and more reliable slot option for us.

                          Q the mos under-rated WR. He will prove himself this year with all the motivation and talk about Fitz being better. He will be an ALL-Pro, just you watch.

                            You act like someone would be surprised if that happens.

                              no one should, especially after he runs over the over rated Safety your team has.

                                Man, pretty much everyone here(including myself) likes Boldin so throwing around underrated comments about him dont really make much sense, and no one would be surprised to see him be an All-Pro next year, maybe one reason is because he's already been an all-pro before I dont know.

                                Also Roy Williams isnt overrated either, everybody pretty much knows he sucks at this point and its not breaking news to anyone...aside from the fact that he has nothing to do with a conversation about nfl wr's
