    I have a question for UofCWildcat and anyone that signs slows WRs. Do your slow WRs (not necessarily all possession guys as there are some listed as that but that have decent SPD) ever get faster? I have 2 slow guys (87 and 86 SPD) and for the 2nd and 3rd years in a row, they have not gained any SPD during progression. My fast guys all gained +2 SPD (I think all other positions only gain +1 SPD) so it seems odd that the slow guys don't gain +1. Hell, even my O-linemen gain +1 SPD every year! My possession guys did gain more in the receiving categories than the speed guys, but not enough to make up for losing 2 SPD though (IMO).

    I'm just curious, do your WRs with 87 or less SPD gain any SPD during progression?

    Yes they do. Year one is my best example. Wesely Horton and Damion were B to B- speeds from what i remember and they ended up in the 90's. Even though it was the low 90's it's better than the low 80's

    So they were gaining more than 1 SPD per year?

    Yeah from what i remember. I think either 2 or 3 each year with a RS year. So by their Senior year they were low 90's

    I had a possession WR that hasn't progressed from 84 speed. I just cut him as a SR(RS).

    Montrell Brooks has been an 87 speed his entire career. He's a senior now.

    I've a couple guys improve slightly 3-4 points during career for speed but usually the catch and release ratings get a beer jump.
