In the modern era of the NFL, we typically see 3 Receiver sets. Ideally, this combination will hope to produce, (sometimes individually - but often collectively) a:
1) Vertical Threat (speedster) - someone who can stretch the field; although aging, Chambers has shown flashes.
2) Leaper - a player who can go up and catch the ball at 'its highest point'; in the corner of the End Zone, perhaps. We've seen that at times with DBowe, but he definitely needs more consistency to fit that bill.
3) Possession (slot guy) who can make the tough catch over the middle and help move the sticks. Is Bobby Wade really our best at this? I'm not convinced.
We all know how many balls were dropped and how many receivers Pioli/Haley brought in to try to shore things up. In addition to listing who you think our most valuable receiver is, what are your comments as to the changes you think we should make to improve this vital part of our team?
My recommendation - Golden Tate! He can be that slot guy and help in the Vertical game.
