Possible Receivers for us

21 posts in this topic

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.

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.

As A grad of The Citadel, nothing would thrill me more than for us to get Andre. Watched him do alot of great things for the last 4 years but he is also a great kid --- graduated from The Citadel in Dec (3 1/2 years) and held high leadership rank within the Corps of Cadets. although he is slightly built, he only missed 4 games to a high ankle sprain in his career --- i think he can definately make his mark as a returner (both KO and punts) and be a good slot receiver...did not see his numbers from the combine today, so don't know where his 40 time stacks up, etc.

I think if we go after a defensive player in the 2nd (pending any trades, etc.), I would try to nab Carlton Mitchell out of South Florida. 6'4, 212 lbs with a 4.45 40 time. He could be a stud.

Golden Tate probably will be gone by the time we get our first pick...I think Jacoby Ford could be the answer to two of our prayers! He was a stud kick returner at Clemson and would have put up bigger numbers, but he split time on returns with CJ Spiller. He could become a number two reciever...at worst a number three. Can you imagine having two Steve Smiths on the field at the same time?

The Panthers and Bucs are both very interested in his Long guy from Louisville... not sure if it's a smoke screen or not.

I think Mardy Gilyard is the only guy we can draft in the 2nd and get our money's worth.

In the 3rd Taylor Price, Carlton Mitchell, and Demaryius Thomas are the only good value.

I would like to trade down and get two WR's. Sign Moose back with Jarrett as a wild card. Draft one WR that can return and one pure WR.
