But Floyd screams Dwayne Jarrett to me. Complete with the alcohol problem.

Have you been watching this D? Because if you think LB is not a need thats silly.

two of our starting LBs, one of them is one of the best LBs in the NFL, are on IR

And you want us to draft a MLB in the first round when we have so many other pressing needs.

I think we should draft a LB maybe in the 4th or 5th just in case whatever happens with TD, but our first two picks need to be used on WR, CB, or DT.

Justin Blackmon is far and away the best WR available. I'm not a big fan of Jeffery or Floyd. Jeffery just looks slow to me; not sure he'd work that well in our offense. Floyd is pretty run-of-the-mill as far as 1st round WR prospects go. Even if he works out I don't think he'd be THAT good.

Truthfully, I'd rather trade up for Blackmon than settle for Jeffery.

Even if our current starting 3 LBs were our real starting 3, LB wouldn't be in the top 3 needs....

How many on here would take Miller if they had the chance in the 1st? This guy has that kind of talent. BPA is a term I get on here all the time, he could be BPA. We either need a great DT or a LB that can create pressure up the gut because otherwise games like weve been seeing are going to be happening a lot. Not to mention since we now face Jimmy Graham twice a year we might won't to find a LB that can cover him.

BPA. If thats at CB or DT I'm happy as can be but unfortunately I don't see one. If you want to draft a #2 WR over a D that is as bad as any in the league be my guess. But I actually would like to win games next year. Not to mention TD is not a starter, he's an injury waiting to happen. Cut our loses there.

you might as well walk up to Floyd and smack him in the face

when Jarrett ran routes, he looked like an uncoordinated giraffe out on the field. imo, Floyd can run a ton of routes already and looks pretty fluid in most of them.

I don't know why you think giving Newton more weapons, and possibly an elite one at that, and say our need at LB is so bad we'd need to use a first rounder on it. Even if TD is cut or whatever, LB still isn't even in the top 5 of needs.

This thread is about if we have a top 10 pick, and at the time there is no DT worth a top 10 pick, and maybe one CB worth it. There are 3 WR that are worth that. If the BPA is a WR, why complain, if the WR pans out this will make us unbelievably better.

This draft is loaded for WRs and pretty thin on DTs. The consensus #1 DT in this draft (Crick) projects better as a 3-4 DE anyway.

I'd take Blackmon or Floyd over Jeffrey, personally.

Blackmon and Jeffrey won't be there unless we pick, unless a miracle "Fairley" type fall occurs (Most draft sites have us picking around 10 to 12). However if either is there, you take them (Blackmon over Jeffrey, in my opinion).

If not...

Then, the consensus would be to take Michael Floyd, that way we can actually have a receiving corp. worth a damn (Steve Smith, David Gettis, Michael Floyd, Brandon LaFell, Armanti Edwards, and Kealoha Pilares).

OR

Take defensive tackle and run-stopper specialist: Brandon Thompson from Clemson. If we take Thompson, we would hopefully be set at the defensive tackle position (Ron Edwards, Brandon Thompson, Sione Fua, and Terrell McClain)

wasn't floyd making jimmy clausen look good? might be a good choice lol. i think it will be a couple years before gettis get's back into full game speed since WRs do a lot of cuts/stops and getting the knee back to where it was takes awhile from everything i've seen from past rehabbers. this is only if we can't get Vincent Jackson or Pierre Garcon ;)

do we really want to end up like the falcons, spending luxury picks on WRs when we have so many other needs to address?
