WR, DE, DT or CB?

34 posts in this topic

Draft WR's with our first seven picks. One of them will turn out to be decent. I hope.

this is the only option if we draft for a WR.. lol

to think drafting a WR is the answer is crazy by this point.. we should have made a play for someone already.

one thing is for sure.. WR is our biggest need, however we go about it.. one thing that has to happen is succeeding in FILLING THAT ROLE.. trying without success is not an option anymore.. FA is the only way at this point, on top of drafting someone...

This team is a mess. Other than linebacker or running back, you take the best player available.

Really? You want us to take a Center, LG, LT, RT, quarterback, TE, fullback, or FS (Martin's position)? No I think I'll focus on the D-line, Wide-reciever, and corner positions with our first round pick. Other than that I agree.

Thanks again for your positive attitude Sam Mills Fan!! Just when you say Smitty's career is over with you hammer us with another great one :thumbsup::thumbsup:

And CATMAN I thoroughly agree with the Marvin comment. Although I really hate it for him, his draft stock could plummet--fingers crossed he'll be available in the third round. At the right time in the draft I could see us taking any of the UNC defensive players....except Brown he is awful I can't stand him.

Kicker and Tight End (trade down)

Seriously: BPA within those four categories maybe not WR though.

id be in favor of drafting a wr if there is a sure thing still available....if not gotta go with any of the 3 (CB, DT, OL) that has an immediate impact player...it would be nice if we had a few lineman who could pass protect rather than being great run blockers and average-below average pass blockers

I think you go DT with the first pick. The defense will be strong for years. Brown, Hardy, and Norwood will develop to into pretty good players so I think you can rule out DE. LaFell, Edwards and Gettis will also get better so unless a stud WR falls to us I don't see that happening. CB maybe a possibility. With the way Gross is playing tackle might be an option too.

Falls to us? at this point im thinking we have a top 5 pick, we got our ass's kicked by the freaking buccaneers.

Obviously bpa at one of those positions. If a great player falls or is available and you pass on him for a player at a position you have your heart set on, you're kicking yourself in the nuts. People seem to act as if the first rounder is the only draft pck that matters. You can strengthen any position at any point in the draft.

Right now it looks like we could be high enough to take AJ Green or Julio Jones. If those two guys are there then you take them. They are both perfect compliments to Steve Smith and we actually could think about putting Steve Smith in the slot for the last years of his career where he could be even more dynamic. If Green or Jones are there then you take them and its a no-brainer IMO.

QB - Not drafting one next year with Clausen and Pike on the team. We are going to ride it out with them for the next few years and hopefully one of them will step up and be the long term solution.

OL - Not playing well but is set right now when Otah comes back.

RB - ....

TE - Not in the first round.

DL - I like what we have if we stay a Tampa 2.

LB - No need in the first round.

CB - Could be a need if we lose Marshall but I think we keep him.

S - I think we have two long-term safeties...no first round need.

WR - We have ONE player that can catch the ball consistently. LaFell I think is going to be the answer to something...I just don't know what. Maybe he'll be a good slot receiver who knows. But the fact of the matter is that if Green or Jones are there then you take them. If its only Baldwin or Floyd there then you have a decision to make if their competition is a guy like Patrick Peterson. We just need a WR so damn badly. As much as I am hoping Clausen leads us to the playoffs this year...I know its not probable. So that said...Please find a way to get AJ Green or Julio Jones.
