Admittedly, I have been skeptical of Wes Welker since he signed with Denver. As I saw it, Welker was merely just another piece of the puzzle in Denver as Brandon Stokley's replacement.
Welker has quickly won me over.
At the team's scrimmage at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Saturday, it was pouring rain. All of the receivers—including Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker—were dropping wet balls.
I didn't see Welker drop one pass.
What's more, Welker's route running was exceptional, and his speed was surprisingly notable. Welker's 40-yard dash time has ranged from 4.55 to 4.65, but that number is deceiving.
Welker's routes are crisp, and even Chris Harris Jr.—ranked third among all cornerbacks in the NFL by B/R's Matt Miller—can't cover him. This guy is the real deal.
