Starting Wide Receiver
The young Dalton Pompey gets the start at wide receiver, and despite his inexperience at the pro level, he has all the physical tools required to turn into one of the greats. At 6’2″, 195 pounds, Pompey has the long and lean frame required for the position, and might resemble Chad Ochocinco (or is he going by Johnson again?) as he tiptoes along the sidelines. With a veteran outfielder at QB, Pompey will be his project.
Ben Revere is the slot man, and immediately becomes a threat to catch 100 balls in his first NFL season. Standing at 5’9″, 170 pounds, Revere may not be built to take regular hits at running back, but he’ll quickly become a steady source of 8-to-10 yard slants (just as he’s a steady source of singles in the MLB!). This represents Toronto’s version of Wes Welker or Jarvis Landry, and he’ll quickly become a fan favorite.
Red Zone Receiver
Chris Colabello is your new red zone weapon, Blue Jays fans! Succeeding in the red zone is all about coming up big in the clutch, and few have done that better than Colabello in 2015. Whether Colabello pushes his way over the goal line by inches with a slow-rolling ground ball through the middle or catches a beautiful corner fade with a home run to dead-centre, he’ll be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses at 6’4″ and 235 pounds.
