Possible Receivers for us

Recommended Posts

we definitely need to address receiver in the draft, I'm hoping we do it with our pick in the 2nd, but if there is a solid d end(cause pep is leaving) or d tackle we might take them instead. Here are some receivers that might be available to us where we pick, let me know your thoughts:

Brandon Lafell

Dezmon Briscoe (my personal favorite)

maybe golden tate

damian williams

benn will be gone in the first, and i think d. thomas from georgia tech will be too considering reports he ran a 4.38 at his size.

We need another playmaker!

Demariyus Thomas now has a broken foot. He will not be running a 4.38 at the combine. I still like Golden Tate and Benn the most. I think both are immediate impact guys if they go to the right team.

Thomas ran a 4.38 before he broke his foot according to his agent; I think that is what the OP is refereeing to.

Other than Dez Bryant, any WR is possible. It’s hard to gauge the value of any player until the combine/pro days are over.

Look for Andre Roberts name to pop up. Played at the Citadel but had an impressive Senior Bowl week. Plus he's a local kid; and went to a military school. So should have his attitude straight.

Lafell will probably be gone by the time we pick as well as Tate. Tate would be worth trying to trade up to pick though. But I would be happy with us taking Shipley and investing a late round pick in Floridas Brandon Jones or LSU's Holliday who are both extremely quick players who would be huge assets to us in the return game which is extremely important with out run focused offense.

i would pass on gilyard and look and antonio brown later. i like brown a bit more actually. another option is ford who may slip to the 3rd and currently is a 3rd/4th grade who would be fine as a returner and tons of potential at wr.

of the 2nd round wrs, i like briscoe and lafell more than gilyard. both will be good long term.

Andre Roberts please. Kid is amazing. He'll do great things no matter where he goes.

Doubt we'll get him in the second, but should be there in the third.

This.

He is a threat at KR/PR and WR. But will he be there when we pick, and we will we actually choose a WR in the second?

I hope so.

there are several decent WR that could slide to us. i think we choose one of them or a DE. never know what the panthers will do though, many times they end up picking BPA for some depth. WR has to be near the top of our needs list.

i think gilyard could make an impact at both WR and KR. either way i think we need a wideout that fills both those roles. someone early with talent preferrably. we've already got plenty of later rounders with "potential" (ryne robinson)

I think Cooper is the best fit for our offense, hes a good receiver and gets good separation (he is deceptively fast) but he also is one of, if not the, best blocking recievers in the draft.

I would love to get Andre Roberts as well. Or if hes there and Graham (DE), Price (DT), and Tate are gone I would love us to get Jacoby Ford in the 2nd. He has face melting speed and shown at the senior bowl that the so called "Poor" route running was because of the offense he played in not necessarily him. Actually him and Cooper probably did the best in this area at the SB.

It only took one 40 time for Mayock and the other NFL pundits to start comparing Jacoby Ford to Desean Jackson. He really might have shot himself up the board and into the conversation at the 4th receiver taken. OR teams (other than the Raiders) could be wary because he reminds them of Darius Heyward-Bey.

My WANTS list still has Bryant and Tate at the top as the two guys who are far and away the best receivers in the draft.

Benn ran a little slow but he is a bigger receiver. I wouldn't mind having him..even though I'd really like to have one of those guys that is running in the 4.3s. The 4.5 guys (a la Jarrett and Keary Colbert) haven't really worked out for us. We need to find another Steve Smithesque type receiver.

We could have one but we would have to trade into the 1st and get Tate. I'll go on record to say if he stays healthy he will be the next Steve Smith/Desean Jackson YAC type player.
