The temptation is too great. So, investing a little time in understanding some of the new talent that is being tested during the NFL's annual Scouting Combine is something I have to take a look at. This article focuses on potential wide receivers in the NFL, especially those who may fit with the Oakland Raiders.

Since the list is long I decided to partition the 44 potential NFL players into four groups. Here is the first group with some of their statistics:

 ht          wt   games  caught  passes        yds            td 
Ajiroytutu6'3"21146129199712 
Alexander6'4" 20547191277822 
Arnett6'1"186277810529*
Banks5'7"150241231754102009
Bell6'3"210115195813 
Benn6'1"2213715922217*
Boateng6'1"20923426307*
Briscoe6'2"20537219324031*
Brown5'10"18341305319922 
Bryant6'2"21728147242529

All of these guys aspire to become wide receivers. I have my preferences.

For example, an ideal wide receiver, in my opinion, should not weigh above 190 lbs to 205 lbs. He should be about 6'1" or 6'2".

Furthermore, I think that he should have a high number of yards, a high number of successful catches, and plenty of touchdowns.

With my criteria in place, we would then focus on the starred players.

Of the starred players, I am undecided on who would make a good Oakland Raider. So, consider this article a "teaser" and I will get back to you after I have done more research.
