        That list is open to debate, but there's no way Eddie Kennison is ahead of Rod Smith and he's maybe not even ahead of Ashlie Lelie.

        Rod Smith - 79 rec / 1144 yards / 14.5 avg / 7 TD

        Ashley Lelie - 54 rec / 1084 yards / 20.1 avg / 7 TD

        EK (the quitter) - 62 red / 1086 yards / 17.5 avg / 8 TD

          Well, those stats prove Eddie had a higher YPC than Rod Smith and 1 more TD than Rod Smith, and he also had more yards than Ashley Lelie and 1 more TD than Ashley Lelie. How do those stats prove that their is "no way Eddie Kennison is ahead of Rod Smith". Granted, Rod Smith has had a better career but Eddie Kennison is getting better with age and had a better year last season.

              Rod had more catches and more total yards.

              EK only had TWO yards more than Lelie and Lelie much higher avg yards.

                  Let's also look at career stats.

                  RS - 712 rec / 9772 yards / 13.7 avg / 59 TD

                  EK - 414 rec / 6282 yards / 15.2 avg / 32 TD

                  Eddie couldn't carry Rod's jock.

                      I'm curious as to how they devised this list.
                      Am I to assume that all of the wr's listed above rod/lelie had more yards, higher avgs. and more td's?
                      How about more 3rd down completed?


                      I find that highly doubtful........

                      men."

                        This list is basically a list of the top WR's based on last years performance and how they will do this year in their opinions. Obviously Rod Smith had a better career (far better). However, Eddie Kennison has gotten better with age. Eddie Kennison had pretty identical stats to Rod Smith last year, but Eddie Kennison is younger and I believe that is why they gave the nod to him as the better WR as of now.

                          Like I said, I know EK has not had near as good a career as Rod Smith. However, at this point in their careers Eddie Kennison is just as good a WR as Rod Smith if not better.

                            TSN uses their own scoring guide to grade different players.

                            Eddie Kennison: 7.5
                            Rod Smith: 7.4
                            Ashley Lelie: 7.2

                            They offer the following categories as to how WR's are graded:

                            Hands: Concentration, snatches, soft hands.
                            Routes: Sharp and crisp, body control, fakes, cuts.
                            Catch long and short: Possession, acceleration, can go deep.
                            Run after catch: Threat, catches in stride, elusive.
                            Blocker: Willing, positive results, sustains, open field.
                            Release: Can avoid jam, not held up, physical.
                            Reacts to the ball in a crowd: Comes over the middle, shows toughness.
                            Initial quickness: Accelerates, gets off the ball, has an extra gear.

                              Not to mention, Eddie Kennison was out for two games last year. He had his numbers in 14 games.
