Jones is better physically but I rank Green as the 2nd best WR in the NFL behind CJ. Green is just a phenomenal WR. Physical attributes aren't everything. Jones also plays with a much superior QB and with another top level WR opposite.
Pretty much everywhere? So you really think the Falcons had Green ahead of him? I doubt it. Green was injured, measured shorter than he was billed and he didn't perform in the elite category in testing. I am sure teams were split on those two. The bigger point is no matter how the split went, it was a 1, 1a situation, so to place Lee between those two is impossible.
Kaepernick is this years pat white. Thin, gimmick offense and doesn't possess an nfl arm. The ncaa constantly regurgitates clones of past players and amazingly enough, tricks some people into thinking they're better than their cloned half. Kaepernick was a complete waste of a senior bowl qb spot. A better qb will come from the east/west shrine or whatever they're calling it now...count on it
