I think it is because wide receiver is more than just being fast and athletic -- you have to have good hands and run good routes. If you run great routes and have good hands you can be a successful wide receiver. Seems to me RB and CB are more "reactive" positions. In short, you can make up for a lack of speed at WR easier than you can at RB or CB.

*if* you are willing to go up the middle, which a lot of black guys aren't.

edelman, amendola, and welker will all be horrifically CTE-pwned. welker's already showing signs

many WR routes are run close to the sidelines, which generally means 1-on-1 or at most 1-on-2 "jump balls" between a WR and a defensive back. those are basically just tests of speed, leaping ability, and to some extent hands.

other routes can be run as slants, post routes, etc. through the middle of the field. these can often yield big gains because it's harder for a defense to play man-to-man coverage in those situations. since the route is more tactical, speed and jumping aren't as critical. but those routes tend to be more susceptible to crushing hits from safeties and linebackers (who are larger than cornerbacks) coming in to make the play.

many WRs outright refuse to run those routes because of the risk of injury, especially the higher-paid ones. New England has found this rotating cadre of white guys that are willing to run any route anywhere, and have used it to great effect. But each of those white guys has had a ton of injuries (more than the usual WR) because of it.

I ask the same question when I see white sprinters in the finals of big time sprinting events, like the 100m and 200m. They are almost always Euros/Eastern Euros though.

Jordy Nelson used to be so 180 before his knee injury

He's still 175. But before his injury, he was fast as fuck and absolutely torch dudes with a little stop-n-go move
