The Ticats worked with 8 receivers last year, they may work with more this year but let's just say for the sake of argument they only want 8. Who would be the 8 receivers that you would bring to the field and which 2 would go on the practice roster? My picks are:
Your picks seem to be reasonable for the time being, but Obie says there may be 15 receivers in camp this year, so i don’t think we can pick a top 8 yet.
One thing we can be certain of is that somebody’s favourite will probably be cut. Bringing so many receivers to camp means they are looking to make some changes at those positions. I agree with your top three, though I put Davis as my number two. Bauman while I’m not sold on him, he is the leading non import candidate so he will make the team for sure.
We don’t know what Ball, Ward and Currie have yet. I guess that’s why we have training camp. I’m sure people’s opinions will change a few times during training camp. The good news is that we should have a good crop of receivers with all the competition.
What about the French WR we drafted last year? I think his name was Laurent Lavigne-Masse. If I remember correctly, he turned quite a few heads but didn't stick around as wanted to finish up his last year of school.
I have to agree with that. But I find interesting that Cohen hasn't been mentioned yet here anywhere in this thread. From what I recall last year, he did well on special teams. But he hopefully won't find it that easy to make the team this season as depth is something this team could use.
I hope that the Ticats dont zone into who they want to make the team and keep the guys who have the best camp . The Cats have to have the right mix of veterans and younger recievers to make it through a long 18 game season .
Last season we had to many of the raw rookies who didnt have the experiance to help Printers out when he broke containment to the outside . The veteran reciever that we did have got hurt and didnt really have his heart into what we expected out of him . The rookies while inexperianced have the gusto that we need to make it through the 18 games .The games they played last season will help them and having PR for all the games and with the same QB from training camp on will make the pressure situations easier for Porter .
I am expecting alot out of Bauman this coming season , this is his time and we need him to become a leader and a go to guy on second and long situations . He will be our #1 non import reciever is he up for it ?? I hope so !!!
Personally i'm not sure who we should bring in. If i'm correct in what I heard and Matt Carter is a SB, then he would probably be a good pickup. McHenry on the other hand might make a nice deep canadian threat.
