Who do you want running as 3WR?
Who's better suited to play the slot?
Who's better suited to take over for Hopkins or Fuller if either guy is injured?

I'd love to take a flyer on Jaelen Strong. I think he could fill in for Terrance Williams.

Not sure if the Texans would actually move him though.

Obviously Strong has had more production than Miller since he came to the league a year earlier but I still will say him. Miller still has to develop as a WR. Strong is the better WR right now. I wish we had a QB and an offense that can get him more involved in the offense.

Miller is better suited as the slot WR. Miller is quicker and more elusive than Strong is. Maybe the Welker hire will pay dividends for him.

Strong is better suited to take over for Hopkins and Fuller should either one get hurt. Like I said at the beginning he is more proven and developed as a WR than Miller is right now. Hopefully we bring in a vet WR to help them out should this instance occur during the season.

I hope Welker helps out both guys as well. Both guys could benefit a lot from him. Braxton already has the physical tools to do some of the things that Welker did, but maybe Wes' coaching can help Jaelen incorporate some shiftiness and elusiveness into his game.

If Jaelen could release off the LOS a little quicker, then this wouldn't even be a contest.

I am not sure what the deal is with Strong. I get the feeling BoB isn't a big fan. The guy seems like a good WR when he gets the reps, not sure why he doesn't get more playing time.

I personally like both of these guys but for me its like comparing apples or oranges one is an outside guy and the other is a slot guy. We truly CANT see what these guys can really do. Honestly if it were up to me I would have Hopkins as our #1. Strong as our reliable hands playing the #2... Fuller running deep routes in the slot... Miller as our #4 running all the 1-10 yard routes since he is a little more shifty than the others. I know I will get a lot of heat for this I just see that as a better situation than having Fuller run deep routes but drop some balls that should have been easy catches.

Strong is a lazy stoner who is still operating with the same skillset he had in high school. These guys never work out NFL, especially in this system that requires precision. Will do just enough to get a 2nd contract with someone still looking at college measurables then eat/drink/smoke his way out of the league. Personally, now that we have Welker as WR coach, I think we need to draft a protege of the Welker/Edelman/Amendola mold. That may have been the idea with Braxton Miller, but entitled Ohio State star QB doesn't exactly translate to hard working overachiever type. O'Brien doing absolutely nothing creative with his QB/running skills spoke volumes to me about the "genius" of O'Brien who seemingly does nothing to adapt the NE "system" to the unique talents of his players, but rather asks players to do things they simply aren't suited for, then he gets mad about it. See also: running Lamar Miller in between the tackles as if he is Lagarrette Blount.

Terrelle Pryor would disagree with your take.
