Theoretical... We have a top 10 pick and have the choice of a stud receiver or DT...

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

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.

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.

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?

We aren't losing games because our O can't move the ball. You are blind if you can't see that. But of course another WR will solve all our problems.

How is drafting a WR in the first round when its the best player available ignoring our defense, when we still have free agency and our other draft picks to address those issues?

Last time I checked this is a draft forum. I guess you know who will be available when FA starts and who we will sign.

BPA is a matter of opinion.

I'm pretty sure our draft needs will change based on players that leave in free agency and who we sign in free agency. Its pretty silly to have your heart set on drafting a defensive player in the first round when a WR might be the better player and the team may have already strengthened the defense before the draft, and vice versa
