If we don't take a WR with our first pick..

Oklahoma St WRs are usually a bad investment. Do you guys remember Rashaun Woods? The best WR to ever play at Oklahoma St.. broke all the records there. Also, Adarius Bowman was amazing at OSU but sucked at the NFL level. I don't think there is a single OSU WR that actually panned out.. D'Juan Woods is on the Saints practice squad...

Not saying Dez Bryant will be a bust.. but he is unpolished like those others OSU WRs and he is all potential. I don't think he would be the best option for us.

There is no way 7 or 8 WRs will be picked before we do in the 2nd round.. that many of any position will not happen.. we will have more options than you guys realize. There will be 3 WRs taken in the 1st round alone... maximum.

Dez Bryant, Arrelious Benn, and either Brandon LaFell or Golden Tate will be 1st round picks.

I believe 2 other WRs will be taken before us in the 2nd round (the other being Mardy Gilyard), so we should get the 6th overall WR in the draft. But, this draft is the deepest in a long long time for WRs.

Here are the projected WRs that will be on the board when we pick:

DeMaryius Thomas (WR, Georgia Tech)

Dezmon Briscoe (WR, Kansas)

Danario Alexander (WR, Missouri)

Jacoby Ford (WR, Clemson)

Damian Williams (WR, USC)

Jeremy Williams (WR, Tulane)

Jordan Shipley (WR, Texas)

who is your 3rd team taking a WR in the 1st.I could see the ravens and bengals?I also could see anquan boldin getting traded to take care of the ravens but IDK.

I also could see us trading up in the 2nd round.

I believe the Cleveland Browns will take Dez Bryant.

The Ravens and Bengals are the others teams that could use a WR in the first.. but it's possible only 2 of these 3 teams take a WR leaving us with more options.

that list scares me. lots of boom or bust picks, or just average nfl wrs in it.

ford, briscoe, and thomas scream boom or bust to me. just a burner and a good returner (ford), to comments about taking plays off (briscoe), to never running anything other than 4 routes (thomas), they all have issues.

all three have skills to be top flight wrs if they want to. ford has speed you cant teach, the guy could be smitty part #2 if he can be a reliable when you thow him the ball and he can run crisp routes. thomas has the rare blend of size, strength and speed you covet for a wr in a running attack, he is a plex type, big wr that is a endzone monster and can fight off any cb he wants to get off the line. thing with him is can he run anything other than a go route, and can he get seperation when the team isnt loaded up to stop the run? briscoe can be flat unstopable when he wants to be, and at time looks like he will never drop a ball he gets his hands on.

shipley, damian williams, and alexander could be very good, or just average. alexander is the walking wounded, more move the chains type. shipley is another guy thats been on and off the injury reports countless times and screams nice #3 and good returner. damian williams is smooth and could be steve smith at USC or another DJ, idk, he may be the best guy that can come in and produce day 1 though.

dont know enough about jeremy williams to comment.

personally i have my heart set on mccluster later, and a guy like cooper later, but first add a quality FA like floyd or breaston. also would have moose back for 1-2 years to let cooper develop. i think mccluster is going to be a steal as a WR.

yo I still like gilyard but I have warmed up to briscoe. He is a nightmare when he plays all out. To the guy saying boom or bust, I hate to say it but every player (esp wr) is in that category. I know when the panthers drafted steve smith they didn't say hes gonna be a top 5 wr. You cant be scared to take a chance when the pick is in round 2 and back. I say 2 of our first 4 should be wr.

in the 6th round. someone, likely the raiders, vikes, balt, or bungles, will take a gamble on him. some teams with less needs will value him more, as if he pans out its a hug boost, if not still a strong team.

he is an absolute stud, but can we afford the risk at WR at this point. now if its the 6th and he is still there, F' it, take a risk and hope it pans out, b/c i doubt anyone left after the 4th will have the upside williams has, but quitting the team this year, being out in 08 b/c of classes is scary.

Let's take a look at the most recent drafts at the WR position.. I can't find any WRs that were picked in the 3rd round other than Steve Smith that are #1 WR quality.. in the past 10 years. We must pick a WR in the 2nd round to have any decent chance of success at the WR position.. the chances of finding a good WR drop off dramatically after the 2nd round.

Looking at this just makes you appreciate the friggin steal that Steve Smith was..
