The London vs. Burks debate will live forever it seems, lol. Question, aside from health, what was one of the biggest issues with our WRs last season? .....Beating press coverage. Who is the best in all of College football at beeting Press? .....Drake London, and its not close. https://www.pff.com/news/draft-top-five-wide-receivers-press-coverage-2022-nfl-draft Additional key stats of the top 8 guys: https://jetsxfactor.com/2022/03/30/ny-jets-draft-ranking-the-top-wr-prospects-in-5-key-stats/ I'll save everyone the long read, London had the best overall score, including adjusted catch rate to determine who has the best hands. Burks finished 3rd overall, and 6th in hands. Lastly, forgetting statistics, what each player was asked to do, and the schemes were completely different. Burks was often manufactured touches to get him in space with momentum to take advantage of his speed and strength. This allows for easier catch opportunities and favorable matchupd. Additionally, everyone likes to cite the Alabama game where he outran everyone, well if you watch the play, he pushes off to create space for the catch, as he was covered. Then the trailing CB was cut off by the safety before he could catch him, and he was catching him. The other vertical highlight, against a team that slips my mind, was another push off, that created the separation needed. He struggles against press, so he'd need to play in the slot, or on gadgets, but we have berrios for that role, and Davis struggles against press so this doesn't help the corps. London, was asked to win more as a traditional WR role. Yes, he was moved around, but less so in a gadget kinda way. He does create separation on short and intermediate routes well, and many of his contested catches are do to late or inaccurate throws. If you decide to take another look, watch the top of his stem, when he breaks. He is the best in class against press, with a variety of release moves, and physicality. He would allow us to move Davis into the slot, where he would thrive not having to beat press, much like his days in Tennessee with AJ on the outside. I get wanting a homerun threat, and I do too (can double dip in the middle rounds). But London, does offer something we don't have, and that is consistent chain moving production and a redzone threat. Worst case, he could be a dominate Big Slot, if he struggles outside in the NFL, but I think he'll be fine.
