Arizona should target a slot receiver in the draft


  • Arizona WR Larry Fitzgerald had 87 slot targets last year, third-most in the NFL and the highest total of his career.
  • Louisiana Tech’s Trent Taylor led all of the FBS with 163 slot targets.
  • When lined up in the slot ECU’s Zay Jones led all FBS wide receivers in Target Percentage with at least 130 routes run, 11.2 percent more than the next-best.

    I can just imagine the look on a players face when the GM says “All we want you to do is replace Larry Fitzgerald”….lol.
    Following in the steps of a future Hall of Famer is always a no win situation.
