    With all the talk of Wheatley's size (or lack thereof), I'd be interested to know how he did in the vertical jump. A good jump will make up for lack of size against bigger recievers.

    Watching all the film clips that are out there - he seems to know exactly WHEN to jump, shows uncanny ability to time his leap so as to get his hands on the ball.

    I like this pick!

    He'll probably be a nickel back right away until he gets comfortable with the system. We'll be able to use his return ability as of yesterday. This gives BB the peace of not having to use his full time starters (Hobbs, Maroney, Welker) as return guys and risk losing them with injuries.
