    I mean if you think Dorsett is not somewhat elusive then I am not sure what to call Brandin Cooks. Because Cooks was multiple tiers below Dorsett when it comes to elusiveness.

    In most of the WR screens going to Dorsett he made the first man miss.

    I think you are conflating the routes he is getting with some kind of judgment about his after catch ability.

    It is difficult to do anything after the catch when most of your receptions are throws towards the sideline or require you stretching out.

    I disagree in return (without the emoji). Neither of those guys have threatened a Pats defense on a consistent basis for the same reason the "deep threat" aspects of the Pats offense isn't reliant upon speed as its foundational component.

    Like other aspects of talent, speed has a cost component - especially for WRs. Speed goes up, cost goes up. The question is as a return on investment for the whole player is that cost worth it versus the other talents a WR brings to the table for a team? How about when compared to the overall cost in terms of the position versus constructing the whole team as a percentage?

    I am not one of the Dorsett haters but last year Dorsett's YAC avg was 3.1 yards with 2 broken tackles while Cooks' YAC average was 4.3 yards with 4 broken tackles.

    Any reason the Patriots can’t bring on a 300 lbs defensive tackle to play fullback on the goal line? Very concerned about their deep red zone offense. They seem to have a better chance of a 25-yard TD than a 3-yard TD.

    Or use a 260 pound linebacker to play tight end in the red zone?
