My suggestion is to not only lift weights but also do some quickness and power running drills. Pulling a sled is an excellent tool to gain power and even helps build quickness. Upper body strength is less important in the skill positions but adding some lean muscle and upper body strength never hurts...unless the extra weigh hurts your 40 yard speed. Lower body strength will prove more helpful
