    Don't forget D-Mase wasn't an impact rookie for us either.

    His first 3 years with the Titans/Oilers were not very productive as a receiver or as a returner. Year 4 was when he really broke out.

    His stats in the first couple of years are actually not dis-similar to Roby's. With Pacman and Wade taking the majority of the returns, Roby hasn't been as prolific as a returner, but his rookie stats (in particular) are very similar to Mason's.

    Brandon Jones' stats are superior to Mason's returns in two years as a receiver and are a promising sign entering his 3rd season.

    Those are good points. Even guys like Terrell Owens and Steve Smith didn't light the world on fire their first couple of years in the league. Steve Smith only had 10 catches for 154 yards his first year. Chad Johnson had a robust 28 receptions for 329 yards his first year. Rod Smith had two years of 152 and 237 yards his first two years before 6 straight 1000+ yards seasons. Isaac Bruce only had 272 yards his first year but put up almost 1800 yards his sophmore year.

    The bottom line is we could go on and on showing examples of WRs who took a year or two before breaking out. People that think we could just draft Meachum and all our problems would be solved are just plain wrong at least in year one. Personally I like the odds of at least one or more of the guys we drafted hitting it big in the next couple of years and Brandon Jones is set to break out this year.

    why does everyone think Meachem would have solved our problem single-handedly. What if he's a bust or never plays to his potential. theres a lot of 1stround WR's that turn out into busts and late rounders that turn into gems. Give it time people we have 3 solid WR's we brought we loads of potential.

    If one or 2 become solid or better contributers and Meachem bust then we look smart. If Meachem puts up good #'s so be it. He is bound to though since he is playing in New Orleans but give our guys some time I see them being a very good group. If they work hard and have the desire they will be so just be pacient.

    This might be a dumb question but is that really the same guy we drafted in round 3 this year?
