By this time of year, most fans have a particular player they're most hoping the team will target with their top pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Who's yours, and why?

Cool. But for clarity, do you mean at 14 or on a trade down?

And don't forget ya gotta defend it. Make your case.

With the 44th pick. See most of the other wr's before him gone and he will be the best wide recevier available at the time. For defending it. Look at his stats the past 2 year. :P

For th 14th BPA or Austin. Doesnt matter to me.

And just for full disclosure, neither of us are WVU homers. Correct? :unsure:

Not one bit. My dream would be Austin at 14 and Bailey at 44. Wouldnt have to worry about receivers for the next 4 years.

In the first. I hope they Target Keenan Allen. Obvious reason. Need that #1 wide out of the future. Sheldon Richardson. Get that inside piece that has been needed for a long time now. Desmond Trufant. Get a top corner to grow with that young secondary.


Another option would be trading down with a team with two picks in the first this year.

Finally, BPA.

I think the BPA's will be Cooper, Austin or Allen. IMO there's like a 50% chance Cooper will be there -- but even if he is, you don't know if Gettleman wants to draft a guard that high. The Giants haven't drafted an O-lineman high in a long time. I think Allen's the best pure WR prospect in the draft. He has good size, good speed and perhaps the best ball skills in the draft. The injury is all that worries me. We all know how much it sucks for your 1st round pick to get hurt. Austin is not your average receiver, but he's a dynamic weapon with game-breaking ability. Right now, I might favour Allen just because he has the potential to replace Smitty as a quintessential no.1.

If we pick offense I like Tavon on defense assuming Floyd is gone I like Star

were gonna trade with Oakland giving them Deangelo Williams, our 2nd and 5th round picks for their 1st round pick, and Select Sharief Floyd and then Tavon Austin at 14. Draft over, Carolina wins.

Austin or Allen gets my vote. Give Cam more weapons

I'm on the Star. L bandwagon, but I'm pretty sure we won't get him...and I will be happy regardless if recent history repeats itself

2011 - Patrick Peterson bandwagon, picked Cam (Glad I was wrong)
2012- Fletcher Cox bandwagon, picked Kuechly (Glad I was wrong)

I've been convinced that Tavon Austin should be the pick at 14. DT's are not 1st round material unless they are Suh-like studs. Honestly I just want a Wide Receiver in the first.

My prime target is Star, but I know it's not a likelihood. Of the more likely players available at our pick I honestly am at a loss. Hankins would still be my preferred pick. If not Hankins there really aren't that many impact players around our spot in my opinion. None of the WRs are even close, OG just isn't a value position (but if I had to choose Warmack would probably be my #2 at our pick), I really don't see us spending a high pick on a CB this year, none of the S are 1st round quality players. My second choice behind Hankins would have to be trying like hell for a trade down to pick up an extra 2nd to pick from the deep 2nd round value pool. Get a guy like Hunter or Hopkins (my money is on them being the two best WRs in this class) at the end of the 1st and get an extra 2nd to spend on a combo from S/DT/OL in the 2nd.

Carolina has a 1st round receiver. Ted Ginn #9 2007

If this is like a dream draft type thing, I'd love to see BPA (not WR) at 14, and then Justin Hunter in the second round. His size and athleticism remind me of AJ Green. He dropped a few passes last season, but I really think he's got the potential to be a stellar receiver for many years in the league.

I think the problem with this draft is that there really aren't these kinds of players in it to really get excited about. If we stay at 14 I'd like to add a playmaker like Austin but Kennan Allen could eventually be a quality number one. I'm really not sold either way. I am more excited about the options in the second round like Da'rick Rodgers, Justin Hunter, Jonathon Crypien, or Arthur Brown.

Also I wanna say oline in the first but I really feel like Gettleman is gonna find a couple low priced vets that can come in a hold it down.

My Target is a first round pick around 20 with a extra 3 and 5th for flavoring.

Then we can talk about WR-> Keenan Allen, Travon, Hopkins, Patterson etc.

i don't really have any bandwagons I'm on this year. i want a WR in the first couple rounds and i don't want an OG in the first (i don't want to be starting another rookie on the OL at all).

as far as specific players, there's no one player i have in mind. I'm also not ruling out any, either. i think it will be either DT, WR, or S in the first and one of the remaining two in the second and I've got a suspicion that keenan allen will be a panther, but I'm really cool with the idea of a lot of picks.

I agree with a draft so deep I say trade away.

Star, Warmack, Austin, Vaccaro in that order and I'd be happy, that'd be my list going in. Would be ok with Patterson or Johnson.

Such a deep draft though, not much drop off after those guys, wish we could trade like the 9ers and Pats :(.
