It’s no secret that the same can be said for receivers; opportunity trumps efficiency. As such, we need to consider the volume of targets that a player will likely receive when choosing an appropriate point in the draft to select him.
For the first time in 11 seasons, Roddy White will not be an option in the Atlanta passing game. The veteran earned 70 targets in 2015 , 125 in 2014 and 97 in 2013. In the coming season, White’s role as the second option through the air will likely be taken over by 5th year, and off-season acquisition, receiver Mohamed Sanu.
Let’s take a look at each team’s propensity to air things out. We want our receivers and ends to be peppered with targets.
