    With the addition of Garrett Wilson who outside of injury could be a potential Pro Bowler for years to come, what do you guys think of our group? I really like Elijah Moore a lot. I think the kid can be really special and a perfect potential second receiver to Wilson. His performance against Indy and Miami last year was very impressive, and a small glimpse of what's to come. Shame he got injured late in the season. Braxton Berrios very much like Moore is small fast receiver that plays tough and is a tremendous return guy. Love his fire. Corey Davis was a signing I liked prior to last season and for his part he was very solid, and had some decent performances with our obvious shaky QB play. Shame he got injured as well, but he's a perfect complimentary big body veteran receiver to go along with shorter guys in Moore and Berrios.

    Lastly, do I dare bring up Denzel Mims? lol I mean he's still on the roster and all. Obviously he's been a terrible disappointment of Vernon Gholston like levels, minus being top ten pick. His frame 6'3 207 and age 24 alone should make anyone excited, but is he made out of tissue paper? I mean what gives with this guy? The guy was clocked at 4.38 in the combine and I don't know about most but I'm still holding out hope that he can still turn it around. Reports are that he is in phenomenal shape for mini camp

    Realistically though, he might be done as a Jet which wouldn't be a terrible loss I suppose. Does anyone else think that this receiver corps has the potential to really light it up and surprise the AFC? We are pretty good and most importantly pretty freaking young and fast. Let me know your opinions. Oh and our TE's definitely seem legit, but that's a whole nother discussion.

    I agree...Moore, Berrios & Wilson are young fast & elusive. Davis, a bigger receiver is solid, & Denzel in my book has 2 strikes against him, I am willing to give him a third chance. Health is the big question mark with our receivers, as well as the whole team..

    I know that the bar is extremely low but this is hands down our best receiver room since 2010 when we had Edwards, Holmes and Cotchery. More so than just the talent… These guys are a perfect fit for the modern NFL offense. When have we ever been able to say that?

    Davis had a rough first year but he is a fantastic blocker and will only benefit from having guys like Moore, Berrios, Wilson, Hall and Carter on the field. And all those guys benefit from having Davis with our three TEs on the field.

    I should know better than to get excited but I also haven’t been this excited in over a decade so maybe there is truly something here. Again it’s not just about the talent it’s about the way they fit into the NFL in 2022. We have a plan!

    Yes this is completely true. I forgot to mention how good of a blocker Davis is as well. I like the fact that you mentioned that these guys are perfect fit for the modern offense. We have traditional size/skill guys, and a combination of smaller/elusive guys that we can run certain plays for outside of just lining them up on the scrimmage. Edwards, Holmes, and Cotchery was a solid corps as well, forgot about them and yes the bar is low. Outside of that it might be Coles, Moss, Cherbet, or Key, Cherbet, and D Ward in the late 90's.

    Nothing is going to happen with these receivers unless Wilson steps up and makes the throws he needs to make. You can't talk about receivers in isolation from the guy who's responsible for getting them the ball.

    I think 2015 was a better WR group than 2010 by a little bit.

    Brandon Marshall, Erick Decker, Quincy Enunwa, Jeremy Kerley

    vs

    Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, Brad Smith

    This year’s is by far the best since 2015, but I don’t think it’s better, at least not yet.

    I don't know how I forgot about that group in 2015. Maybe because it was that season alone and we didn't make it to the playoffs, but excellent call. B Marshall was a fantastic pickup to go along with Decker who was a TD beast that year, and Kerley, Enunwa. Nice call.

    yup…I think they both went over 1000 yards if I recall correctly…and Quincy was a solid #3

    ngl, it does kinda sour the taste of your overall point.

    Well, he still is young and could turn it around. Injuries has been his undoing, and he might lack the desire to play through it. My question at this point is, is there any room for him to even play at this point?

    I haven't given up on Mims yet but this is his year to show progress or he's likely out. He had moments his rookie year but injuries combined with not learning the playbook hurt him last year. A weakness coming out of Baylor was his route running, or lack thereof, which is a reqt in this offense. I'm hoping he just needed time to learn the playbook and refine the routes and this is the year he can put it together. I'm not saying he needs to be a 1000 yd receiver this year or he's out, but he needs to show something to build on.

    The receiving corp including those TEs will be a crowded and seemingly talented place

    By game 2 or 3 of regular season I'll have an opinion thank you very much
