Texas Tech is known for producing quality NFL wife receivers, and there are no two greater examples of that than Wes Welker and Michael Crabtree. Welker is one of the game’s best receivers and Crabtree is one of its brightest young stars. Back in 2006, they got a chance to work out together with the Red Raiders. According to Crabtree, the two didn’t exactly hit it off right away. “I actually got into it with Wes Welker when I first went to college,” Crabtree told the Boston Herald on Wednesday. “He said something about me playing in the summer. We were doing one-on-ones with some guys that were in the NFL that used to go to Tech. He was holding me, and I was fresh out of high school, had an attitude, and I was cussing him out to get off of me. He got in my face like I was going to back down.” Crabtree is known for having somewhat of a temper, so he wasn’t about to be shown up by another receiver — even if he was a legend at his school and an NFL star. “That was one of those things I was letting him know I’m about to come in there and do better than what he did,” the Niners receiver said. “It was just fun and games. That’s my dude, though. “You can learn a lot from guys like that. Wes is a legend.” Welker may have had more receptions (259) while at Texas Tech, but he spent four years there. Crabtree caught 231 balls in only two seasons and racked up more yards (3,127) than Welker (3,069). Both are tremendous competitors, which is why it’s not surprising to hear that things got heated between them. That’s the type of drive that separates them from your average receiver.
