    MoMass is starting to show up as a downfield receiver. He has good hands and concentration. Robiskie is showing signs of being a possession receiver — mostly 5-8 yard stuff. Not lighting anything up but moving forward nonetheless. Chansi Stuckey is intriguing. I like him. Saw his Clemson highlight reel and was pleasantly impressed. Grnated, it is the ACC and all that, but he still looked pretty decent. He could be another steal a la Hillis. For my money, we build around Watson and Moore, hope that the youngsters finally grow into what everyone hoped they would, and grab an established dependable FA or value WR pick in the draft, or both.
