  • Drew Bennett

    Just wanted to get your opinion on Drew.

  • #2
    He was Ok for us. he's officially a ram now, and he'll prob put up good numbers as a 3 in stl as opposed to a #1 here. we need a wr who is willing to go over the middle and who has better hands to help VYs accuracy.

      let just say i'm not really sad to see him go. But he is a nice dude, will go over the middle and make some good grabs, but doesn't use his size like he should, not really a true redzone threat. Doesn't make good sideline grabs, but he will get open under the safety coverage and get 10 and 15 yards a pop. The ram overpayed him, but he could become a good #2 once Bruce leaves.

        Bennett's a solid WR; but, like everyone else said, not a #1 WR in the NFL. He could probably fill in as the Rams' #1 WR for a week or two if something happened to Holt, but he lacks the consistency to do it from week to week.

        He is a good character guy though and will probably do some work in the community (which is always a good thing).

        Considering the contract that the Rams gave him, I'd expect him to be the #2 WR in St. Louis this season--moving Isaac Bruce to the #3 role (which probably suits him better anyway given his age).

          I was hoping we would pursue bobby wade moreso than bennett anyways.

              Same here, VY and him were forming a good connection later last season.

                I think Drew can put up good numbers as a number 2 in St. Louis. When teams roll coverage his way, he'll disappear. I don't see that happening much with Holt on the other side. I think Drew can be a solid 50-60 catch/800 yard/5-7 TD guy. The knock every here in TN has had on him is that he doesn't fight for the ball and won't always catch the tough ones. He's a high character guy though, and will be a good teammate.

                    I'm surprised that they haven't already re-signed Wade. The coaches apparently love the guy, he's versatile, he plays a position of obvious need on the roster, he's relatively cheap, and (most importantly) he seemed to develop a good rapport with VY as the season progressed.

                    I understand the Titans' desires to hold-out on FA and wait for the dust (and market) to settle a little bit. But I just hope that such a strategy doesn't blow up in their faces...

                      Bennett was a good but not great WR. Possession type guy, that never had plenty of speed, or strength to become a true number one. Was a really good guy though and would bring the team together.

                        It was funny reading ESPN.com's description of Drew Bennett (I can't remember if it was in their free-agent article or their article about Bennett signing with the Rams).

                        Anyway, they said that Bennett was a great redzone option with sneaky speed and great hands. My question was: Did anyone from ESPN ever watch ANY Titans' games???

                        In reality, Bennett (for as tall as he is) isn't all that impressive in the redzone, he has average speed, and he drops a lot of passes as well (especially tough catches).

                        So...basically...ESPN was completely wrong in their assessment of Bennett.

                        No offense to Bennett. He's a high-character guy who can be a solid receiving options in the right circumstances. I just thought it was funny how incorrect ESPN was (as usual).

                          "great hands" ------ HA!

                          I have been watching a lot of Titans games recently and you are exactly right about Bennett, he really doesnt catch the ball well at all, and it seems that he is getting worse each year about drops. I am glad the Titans allowed him to leave.

                          So, which WR do they target in Round 1 or 2?
