WIDE RECEIVER
Slot/Speed

Drafttek Live Positional Rankings


In a classic offensive formation, there will be two wide receivers on the field. The Split End (SE) begins the play on the line of scrimmage. The Flanker (FL) prototypically lines up on the opposite side of the SE, a few yards off the scrimmage line. Sometimes third and even 4th WRs are used. These are called Slot (SL) receivers, lining up in the space (slot) between the offensive linemen and outside receivers.

Wide Receivers have the following responsibilities:

1) Catch forward passes from the Quarterback
2) Create diversions to confuse defenders
3) Participate in blocking and running plays as needed

Drafttek hes determined that GMs go into the draft looking for WRs with certain traits or skills. But the SE, FL and SL playing field labels do not adequately describe these traits and skills when applied to college WR prospects. Drafttek created the descriptors WRF and WRS to categorize WR talent.

WRS - - "S" for Speed and/or quickness. The WRS designation is a bucket for those WRs who are smaller in stature or slightly built. They may not handle jams well, but bring elusiveness, quickness and/or flat-out speed to the table - creating mismatches in the process.

All picks, 1 page! Drafttek prepared an internal-use spreadsheet for its analysts, who were tired of sifting through page after page to find historical draft picks. They said "put it online for our readers!" This resource allows fans to find all drafted players from the 2010-2013 drafts - side by side all on the same page.
