Wes Welker

Position: Wide receiver

Age: 30

Experience: 8th season

Height: 5 ft 9 in

Weight: 185 lbs

College: Texas Tech

Drafted: Undrafted in 2004

Super Bowl experience: Lost Super Bowl XLII

Season stats: 122 catches, 1569 yards, 9 touchdowns.

Overview: Wes Welker has clearly established himself as the Patriots best wide receiver and is Tom Brady’s favorite target. Welker, who went undrafted and was then released by the San Diego Chargers, has been a constant stable in the New England offense since he was traded to the Patriots from the Dolphins in 2007. He typically lines up in the slot and at just 5 ft and 9 inches, is a constant mismatch for most defenses due to his great quickness and superb route-running. Welker was named as a First-team All-Pro this season for the fourth time in his career. He’ll be hoping to have a big game in this one as he is still searching for his first Super Bowl ring.
