Antonio Brown And Adam Thielen, the reason I choose these players is because Antonio brown has great hands and his ability to separate from defenders and the great footwork that he has to beat defenders of the line and Adam thielen is a great WR who knows how run great routes and attack the field when it’s in the air. I always study these two football players in order to help me improve my game and show that I have what it takes to become a NFL Wide Receiver.
