Walt, I totally agree with you on the cowboys pick because the spread makes no sense even if Wilson plays 3 qtrs. That being said it seems super shady. Usually when that happens I'm proven wrong. I would drop the units to maybe 1-2 and watch some crap happen. Cowboys may want to protect Romo, bad calls....I don't know just seems weird.
Strengths: Big frame with solid bulk and long arms ... Not a freak athlete, but he has adequate athleticism to be a playmaker ... Consistent production statistically ... Tough player who knows how to get off the line of scrimmage ... Runs sharp routes ... Rarely drops passes ... Excellent on the fade route in the red zone ... Can adjust to the ball in the air ... Times jumps well ... Catches the ball away from his body ... Good speed after the catch ... Gives effort as a blocker ... Beat double teams often in junior season ... Does not go down easily after first hit ... Versatile as a solid deep threat, but can also make plays on screens.
Weaknesses: Does not have a second gear to beat safeties deep ... Often shows great ability on route running, but does not give a great effort as much as you would want him to ... Timed speed will go under microscope.
Summary: Britt is the prototypical possession receiver for a West Coast offense, but it will remain to be seen if scouts think he can be a No. 1 receiver. I think his route running and hands will lead him to be a solid receiver in this league. Ultimately, I have a first-round grade on him because he is so well-rounded, but I am not sure if he will actually go in the first round.
Player Comparison: Dwayne Bowe. Britt is slightly less athletic than Bowe, but both boast skill sets with minimal weaknesses. Both are elite threats in the red zone with their size and ability.
