Ran an extremely poor 40 and feel off everyones radar I guess.

Thomas is definitely impressive, but then again there's a reason why he's not crazily hyped. For you to be a successful wideout in the NFL, you have to be smart and run good routes. You don't just get open with speed in the next level. His route running is really raw, though I'm not sure how smart or dumb he is. I wouldn't be upset if we got him, but history says that being super athletic type is neither a prerequisite nor sufficient to be a successful WR in the league.

You should post Emmanuel Sanders' highlight video. I think you would be a good mid-late round sleeper pick at WR/KR for us.

Best thing about Bay-Bay is that he catches the ball with his hands rather than trapping it. When you look at all the top receivers in the NFL, all of them ALWAYS use their hands rather than trying to trap it.

Classic trapper: Braylon Edwards. Guy can't catch a ball if his hands were covered in glue.

I'd LOVE to get him in the 2nd.

I think we all would, which almost assures us it wont happen. I see them going dline in the 2nd and picking up a WR later. I still think Riley Cooper makes too much sense for our offense in the 4th.

Like Many people are speculating, we'll most likely trade next years first again for a second a fourth.

Actually, this is very unlikely to happen. JR won't let a lame duck head coach use next year's draft pick.. he will save those for next year's head coach.

I have a bad feeling we are going to draft Damien Williams

I'm still not sold on "Bay Bay"...

He's fuging stiff as hell, and played in an offense that benefits WRs...

I'd prefer Tate and Gilyard over him, and this draft is pretty solid from a WR standpoint... Andre Roberts is more of our style guy too...

Why save picks for a lockout year? How many underclassmen are going to holdout for 2012?

We've cleared a ton of cap room if we get a new coach he'll be able to bring in a lot of his old favorites with our cap room.

I think we are very likely to trade our first or trade down into the 3rd(or do both!). It all depends on the CBA and JR.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
