Robinson is 6’3, and runs a 4.6 time in the forty. Not the fastest, but he has the best size to be starting on the outside.
Robinson didn’t have the best rookie season, he only played 10 games, but also had to deal with the growing pains of a young quarterback, and young offense. In 10 games he had 48 catches for 548 yards, and two touchdowns.
Blake Bortles also seemed to target Robinson quite a bit, in nine games Robinson had at least six targets, and had 10 targets in three games.
The Jaguars have a few talented receivers, but they also lost Cecil Shorts, who commanded 110 targets in 2014. Those targets are going to have to go somewhere, and plenty of them should go Robinson’s way if he can stay healthy.
As a whole, the Jaguars offense has improved a lot this offseason, and that should lead to a much more comfortable Blake Bortles. However, the Jaguars still figure to be a bottom 10 team which should lead to plenty of garbage time stats for Robinson and the rest of the team.
It seems like Britt has been in the NFL forever, which he kinda has been, but he’s still only 26 years-old. Britt’s career has been a disappointment with a few nice seasons, but his career has been marred by injures, and off-field issues.
Thankfully, 2014 saw Britt have his best season since 2010, and it appears he has the starting job wrapped up. Britt managed 48 catches for 748 yards, and three touchdowns. Not great, but don’t forget that Britt had to deal with Shaun Hill and Austin Davis for most of the season.
The Rams’ ‘upgraded’ at QB with Nick Foles, and though he probably isn’t better than Bradford, he’ll provided stability at the position.
This season should result in plenty of targets for Britt, but their offense is somewhat questionable considering their offensive line. I like Foles, but he’s going to have a difficult time standing up considering they failed to get any upgrades. Regardless, Britt is the number one receiver, and could have his first 1,000 yard season.
The Panthers have spent the last two drafts going after the most unpolished receivers available, but also two with great size. Funchess is basically a mirror image of Kelvin Benjamin, both stand at least 6’4, run in the 4.6’s, and weight about 230 pounds. They’re huge human beings.
A lot was made of Funchess in college, but it never materialized into anything. He never had totals of more than 748 yards, 62 catches or six touchdowns in a season. However, he was also moved from tight end to receiver throughout the season which could have been difficult on him.
Regardless, the Panthers don’t have much at receiver aside from Benjamin, Greg Olsen, Funchess, and bunch of old receivers.
For comparison, both Benjamin and Olsen had 1,000 yards in 2014, and Jerricho Cotchery had 580 yards with one touchdown. The Panthers were willing to give a raw Benjamin the starting job, and they should be comfortable doing the same with Funchess.
Funchess should be able to nab the starting job across from Benjamin which should lead to a useful 750 yards season with five touchdowns. Not great, but could be useful some weeks.
Despite a troublesome two years in Miami, Wallace had two decent years, but now finds himself on the Vikings. Last season Wallace had 862 yards, and tied a career high with 10 touchdowns.
Trust me, I want Patterson to be good as much as anyone does, but I don’t if it will happen. Alternatively, was Charles Johnson really that good in 2014?
He really only had two good games, where he had 103 yards and 87 yards, but not much other than that.
Wallace’s impact is going to be bigger than most think, and will probably lead the team in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.
This is the dark part of this post, recommending Dwayne Bow, but I had to do it. We all know how bad the Chiefs offense was in 2014, no touchdowns to receivers, but Bowe should get at least one in 2015, right?
The Browns offense is going to be a mess again in 2015, but I think McCown is at least better than Hoyer. Yes, McCown was horrendous last year, but it wasn’t too long ago he put up 13 touchdowns and one interceptions.
Like Allen Robinson, Bowe is going to be the beneficiary of a lot of garbage time targets. Bow hasn’t had more than 801 yards over the past three season, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him sneak year 1,000 yards.
