And? That has what bearing on Boykin being slow? I'm not sure you're sure what you're trying to prove here. Boykin is slow. You can cite 500 guys who are also slow but that doesn't negate that Boykin is slow.

BTW, do you know what point you're trying to make?

From Randall Cobb's nfl.com draft bio : Does not possesses great top-end speed and not overly elusive in the open field. Does not have the strength and power to carry the load or push the pile. Only possesses adequate overall ball skills as a receiver. Struggles to sustain his blocks.

My point is that Boykin is not slow. He runs like everyone else is standing still!

By quoting bios from other players that equates to Boykin not being slow? I'm not following the logic.

Boykin is slow. There's no other way to describe his speed or lack of it.

Will be very fun to see what happens at WR. I can support that.

On that we can agree my friend. Should be a very solid top 4. Now we just need a TE to step up.

Boykin has shown he's fast enough to get deep. I don't consider him a speed blazer though.

His main asset is his size. Hands too.

I am not sure if all this arguing in Boykin's favor is meant to elevate him to a status he has yet to achieve or what. He was a decent #3 receiver last season and right now he is nothing more than that. The Packers have 2 receivers that are in the top 15 in the league for sure, you might even be able to argue for the top 10 (not sure I would but I would listen to your arguments) but that is really it. The thing is they may not need more than that. Maybe having two stud receivers and a bunch of average guys will be enough. I hope it is because for now, slow, fast or in between, that is what we have.
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

With 2 stud receivers that will give the "average" ones more opportunities. If they run their routes and catch the ball they will have solid numbers no matter it hey are #3,4 or 5 on the depth chart. There is plenty of Aaron to go around.

Two WR that are in the top 15? Did the Packers make a trade that I am not aware of??

Jordy Nelson and ... ???

Cobb son. Cobb.

Walters #7 and 11

ESPN #7 & 10

FOX #10 & 9


These are the first 3 I looked at. I don't care what happened last year. I only care what people think this year will be like.

I find it interesting that Boykin is ranked above Jennings and James Jones in the Fox rankings. Obviously those are just guesstimated projections, but interesting that non-Packer fans don't anticipate Greg and James and their 9 and 3 million dollar contracts to outperform a UDFA making about 570k this year.

I think it is more respect of Rodgers than anything else.

I don't think Boykin should be ranked ahead of Jennings, or Jones. My only point was that Boykin is a lock to start the season as our number 3, barring injury or off field trouble. That was it.

I don't think he should be rated above them either. That is why I said those that rank him ahead of Jennings or Jones are out of respect of Aaron.
