You're wrong. Lelie got very little separation in short routes and was consistently pushed around by CBs when he had to sell his routes and setup the CB in short to intermediate passes.
Lelie is a great deep threat, no doubt, but Porter is a more complete WR especially considering how he lined up against the defense's best CB and Lelie DID NOT.
