WR Mike Sims-Walker, Jaguars

Pros: Sims-Walker enters the 2010 season as the team's No. 1 receiver after his breakout 63-reception season. He has the size and speed needed to be a top option and is still scratching the surface on his potential. He had at least six catches in seven of his 15 games last year and went over the 100-yard mark three times.

Cons: Sims-Walker has been a poster boy for injury problems in his short career and already missed some of the offseason with a shoulder injury. He also broke some team rules a year ago, forcing them to bench him for a game. Could the overnight success be showing maturity issues? The Jaguars remain a run-first team, and they don't have other proven options opposite Sims-Walker to take pressure off of him. If someone doesn't step up, Sims-Walker will be the target of opposing secondaries.

Fantasy tip: In fantasy football drafts, Sims-Walker typically comes off of the board in the fifth round, which is fair value for him. He makes an ideal upside No. 2 fantasy receiver, but he definitely is a buyer beware candidate based off his limited body of work.
