This "big tall WR" obsession is kinda silly.
How did it get started?
I totally agree. Id take a Josh Reed type WR over an over-rated Toliver any day of the week. Actually, if you look at big WRs that are big time recruits, most of them are over-rated every year. They get rated that high because their 6'4 playing against 5'9 slow CBs in high school. When they get to college and play legit CBs, they disappear because in high school they rely on their size and dont worry about technique, route running, run blocking,etc. There are some that pan out, but for the most part the tall WRs rated very high in high school are over rated. It really doesnt matter how tall they are. I only care if they can play.
