    I am curious and a little scared to see how the Patriots WRs are ranked by ESPN Insider. Due to cost cutting I cancelled my subscription. If it doesn't break any rules can someone post the ratings of our WRs from Scout.com. Also indicate where they fall in the overall rating of WRs.

    Gabriel
    Caldwell
    Brown
    Jackson
    Gaffney

    Give me the link and I can help you out for ESPN, but I don't have Scout. Only Rivals.

    Thanks Dave.

    Example for Gabriel
    http://proxy.espn.go.com/nfl/players/scouting?statsId=6503

    Last year it showed a rating (1-100) and also listed the top players at the position. Clicking on the top players at the position shows a list of all the WRs, should be able to show where he rates against all other NFL receivers.

    Not sure how the format is, but here are the WR rankings. I don't know what the premium content rules on the board are, so I'll refrain from posting the complete info on the Pats receivers unless it's OK.

    Our top-rated receiver is the #58-rated receiver in the NFL.
    And we own the #75-#85 rating group.

    That's not bad. How many teams are there in the NFL again?

    Yeah well...this ranking has Darrel Jackson ranked lower then David Givens, when if I recall Darrel Jackson is considered better then Branch on his own team who we all know is considered better then Givens.

    I believe that ESPN uses Scouts, Inc. Scout.com, aka TFYDraftPreview.com, is used by SI.com. Also not to be confused with NFLDraftScout.com, which is used by USA Today/Sports Weekly. The latter 2 sites have free access through their media partners. In April, I sign up for ESPN Insider's 30-day Free Trial, so I can read Scouts, Inc. draft info. I then cancel in May.

    Based on just what's copied above, it seems that the analyses typically start out focused on size and speed.

    Chad Jackson has the best size, speed and hands on this team, it's only a matter of him adjusting to the pros. He's faster than Deion Branch and at least 3 inches taller.

    That would drop Givens behind Caldwell and Gabriel at least.

    Why not let the players play and trust you own judgement.

    I bet you wait until a stock is at it's peak, then mortgage your house to put everything in the market.

    The Patriots are succesful because they exploit the untapped potential in their players.

    If they waited til every magazine in the country agreed with their evaluations
    They'd just be big name suckers like the bottom feeders in the league.

    I agree with the differences b/w Branch and Jackson physical measurables-wise, but that's not what made Branch good. His route running, quickness in and out of breaks, and continuity with Brady is what made him special. I think that Jackson has the potential to be that way, but who knows if he'll ever develop that way. We have our hopes though :).

    Also Branch was clutch, so was Givens. They could be relied upon to make the correct adjustments. The adjustements will develop over time as far as being clutch we won't know for sure until a pressure situation arises. I don't think Jackson has to replace Branch's production but he does have to emerge as someone that can get to the deep part of the field. If he can get 35-40 catches with a high percentage of them being over the top the rest of the passing game will benefit.

    Good thing those numbers are bogus when it comes to the actual game:) Troy Brown rated 66, but we know how insanely reliable he is.

    If everyone keeps going by stats then we should have never won the 3 SB's. Stats mean nothing, just paper and opinion.

    Is my eye sight shot or is Reggie Wayne not on the list?

    I don't know why everybody is so worried about the Pats WRs. We have 4 that are easily amongst the top 600 in the entire league.:)
