    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    JJ Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford, SR - 6.15 Strengths - King sized outside receiver. Dwarfs every corner that lines up across from him. - Very long arms. Has a massive potential catch radius - Tremendous potential as a blocker on the edge because of his size and length. Shows willingness here and doesn't take this part of the game for granted. But needs technique work and needs to improve his play strength to master the craft. - Excellent leaper. Excellent at timing his jumps - Good body control. Fluid lateral mover. Can make circus grabs in traffic. - Makes a couple of spectacular contested catches every game. - Touchdown machine. Probably the best red zone threat in this year's class. Specializes in winning jump balls. Knows exactly how to use his size to wall off backs from the passing lane. - Does a good job hanging on to the ball in traffic. Dbs almost never win the ball. - Mostly utilized as a deep threat and red zone guy at Stanford but shows the potential to play a bigger possession receiver role in the NFL. - Good long strider who can cover a lot of open field once he gets going. Dangerous vertical receiver who needs very little separation to make big plays. - Plays with toughness and focus. Weaknesses - Not overly quick. Burst off the line is mediocre. Big, rangy player who doesn't have a lot of twitch and needs some time and space to gear up. Not slow or clunky, still has good basketball feet. But not fast. - Needs to learn how to use his hands and all of that length to beat the press. Tries to run around it with a big initial inside or outside step and just wastes time and space. - Shows some hesitation against the press in the red zone getting too cute with stutter stepping and head faking instead of just getting into his stem and letting his size and strength win the day. Too often wants to go around you instead of going through you. - Route running is very raw. Only ran a few routes for Stanford and almost all of them were vertical. Anything with a short stem tipped run pretty much. Few crossers I saw were rounded. Needs to master this to unlock the short and intermediate game for himself. To unlock his potential as a possession receiver who can pile up catches. - Long speed is good but not elite. NFL corners will be able to carry him deep without too many problems. Not going to be a screen threat and not going to be much of a YAC threat, but he's not as bad at catching and running as you'd expect. There is a little spice there. Bottom line, this is a basketball athlete playing football. He's been, by far, the best red zone threat I've seen in this class so far. Comes from a basketball lineage and I sense that it was his background and that he may have come to football later than most because of how raw he is at the technical side of the game. He's going to need a lot of time and work to improve his technique for releasing against a press and his route running and his technique as a blocker. But his raw talent is pretty great. He puts the fear in you as a defensive coordinator because he's such a match up issue. Even when you've got a really good defense with outstanding DBs like Julian Love he still scares you. Only takes one down where your guy isn't absolutely perfect and Arcega-Whiteside makes you pay with a huge chunk play or a TD. He's a real wild card for an offense. A low floor-high ceiling guy. I see him as a likely second round pick who might be able to get into the later 1/3rd of the first round if he has good workouts.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    They've already teed Wall up as the scapegoat for our problems. This is the way Ernie works. Saturday is the 15th. It won't surprise me if Wall gets traded next week.

    The real nut kick is yet to come. The more we lose, the more likely it becomes that we trade Wall.

    He should be the first QB taken.

    This was an away game. Second biggest bandwagon fanbase in the NBA.

    Ticky tack fouls down the stretch going to hurt us in OT.

    That play from Beal totally redeemed all of the crunch time TOs.

    I love that the fouling strategy backfired. Suck on that Stevens.

    Had our chances but we keep settling for poor shots. Built a house out of all these bricks.

    My biggest complaint about Thomas Bryant is he's a mediocre defensive rebounder. He's not great at timing his jumps and he's not super big for the position. Williams's rebounding is outstanding but looks like he can't guard a pick and roll. We need to go at him. Come on Brad. Hang on to the friggin ball.

    He's playing well and I don't think Beal is. Beal is having trouble reading the zone and he's coughing it up. He's also not working hard on defense tonight. Brad has been scoring like crazy the past two weeks. He's had to shoulder that load. But it's come as a result of a lot of pressing and it has drained him and led to poor defensive effort. You can live with the poor efficiency and the lack of defense when he's scoring with so much volume, but it's not ideal. Keef's defensive effort tonight has been shocking. It's been a major reason why this game is close.

    They're playing a zone. Gotta make shots to punish them for it.
