FWIW, Jags are really expecting bigger things from Chark this year. I think Lee gets faded out and we see Chark and Westbrook starting more if Chark has really developed since last year. If he hasn't, then I guess it'll just be the Westbrook show.

All of them are dart throws. Most pure talent is J'Mon Moore, but he also had the dropsies last year.

For sure. He's good. I don't think he'll put up WR1 numbers or anything crazy, but I can see him being a rock solid WR3 if Foles is able to play well in this system.

Nobody wants to hear the answer, but it's whoever they pick in the top 50 next year.

CD is actually really good vs Man Coverage and is mediocre vs the Zone. This weakness in his game coupled with the lack of Weapons this offense had last season made it pretty easy for defenses to phase him out of the offense. This season he'll be another year wiser (so he might fix this weakness in his game), it'll be harder for defenses to focus him with the additions of AH, AJB, and maybe the return of Delanie Walker (A bit of a question mark given the severity of his injury and age), what should be an improved O-line, and a massive upgrade at backup QB if Mariota misses time and last season's production is probably his floor with the potential to post significantly better numbers. In the 8th round, he's got very good risk/reward appeal.

One of the offseason storylines was Mariota coming into this season heavier. He played at 215 lbs the past two seasons, which at 6'4 would place his BMI as the lowest of any starting QB in the NFL. BMI is the best indicator of an RB's ability to be a workhorse at the NFL level; which leads me to believe it could also factor into a QBs ability to absorb hits.

Considering Corey Coleman can be had for basically nothing, I'm likely to be overweight on both of these guys

Kumerow is by far my favorite receiver not named Davante Adams in the GB offense.

MVS and EQSTB are both physically more talented... but Aaron Rodgers has always preferred WR's that are in the right place at the right time... and that guy is Kumerow.

You are really focused on BMI.
