Rams’ wide receiver corps is strong as it is with Watkins
« on: January 04, 2018, 03:15:55 am »
Like the Rams, the Atlanta Falcons have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. Offensively, they have a wealth of playmakers https://www.falconsatljersey.com/brian-hill-jersey-c-37.html, from Matt Ryan to Julio Jones to Devonta Freeman – a trio that many would argue is better than the Rams’.

These two high powered offenses will square off at the Coliseum on Saturday night in the first round of the playoffs, but what if it were possible to take one player from the Falcons and plug him into the Rams’ depth chart? Who would you take? The answer is relatively obvious, and to no one’s surprise, we’d pick the guy wearing No. 11.

Jones is arguably the best receiver in all of football, though Antonio Brown has a strong case https://www.falconsatljersey.com/taylor-reynolds-jersey-c-38.html, too. If he’s not the best Blidi Wreh-Wilson Jersey, he’s certainly the most physically gifted 6 foot 3, 220 pounds with 4.39 speed.

His combination of size and speed rivals that of Sammy Watkins’, only Jones is a better route runner who can dominate at every level of the field. Watkins’ disappointing numbers are partially the result of Sean McVay’s offense, but Jones is a guy who you don’t have to build a game plan around to get him the football. He simply wins his matchups and gets open for the quarterback.

The Rams’ wide receiver corps is strong as it is with Watkins, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, but adding an All Pro to the group wouldn’t hurt. Can you imagine an offense with Todd Gurley and Jones on the field at the same time? How would anyone stop that?

Vic Beasley Jr. also deserved some consideration in this hypothetical exercise https://www.falconsatljersey.com/ricardo-allen-jersey-c-36.html, given his pass rushing ability. However, a talent like Jones is too good to pass up, even if the Rams are deep at wide receiver without him.
