Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast discusses why the 2022 NFL Wide Receiver prospect class is the most boom-bust group he’s seen in a while and covers what matters in his scouting of the position.
Reminder: If you haven’t already, please check out John Hodgins’ GoFundMe story. He and his wife tried to recover on their own from a violent crime that cost them their retirement home and have been living day-to-day for too long. Even sharing their GoFundMe can be helpful, so please visit, read his story, and donate. I have.
This week’s Pod:
- Why this class potentially a lot of hidden values and trap doors with examples for each below:
- Scheme-based talents
- Big enough to ride the Sunday rollecoaster?
- Great athletic ability but underdeveloped skills
- Underdeveloped athletic ability but great positional skills
- Some of the key areas I seek from receiver prospects:
- Separation: Variation, Violence, Precision, and Poker
- Athletic Separation: Speed vs. Acceleration vs. Quickness vs. Leaping Ability
- Routes: Stems, Setups, and Breaks
- Catching: Hands Position, Body Position, Focus
- Transitions and Vision.
