i think drafting a WR in the first round would say more about how rivera/chud feels about gettis than anything else

wonder if they think he will slip into the 2nd round
Probably looking more from a trade down perspective

You could argue that our needs are not what people think they are:
DE: CJohnson, Hardy, Keiser, Applewhite, Norwood, and that free agent (forgot name)--Hardy, Keiser should improve this season. Remember, Keiser had 4 sacks in limited duty last season. Who will we draft better than Hardy? Coples is a question mark and Ingram is a bit short with short arms.
CB: Hogan is our addition. We could upgrade here, but Marty likes to give his picks a shot. If Claiborne does not drop, there are no CBs worth the 9th pick.
DT: Edwards, Shirley, Kearse, McClain, Fua, Neblett--we found a gem or two who played much better down the stretch--some say give the DTs time to develop--besides, Edwards is a veteran presence and DT in this draft does not necessarily mean we improve.I do not see a DT worth the #9 pick.
LB: Who in the first round fills our needs? Keuchly is the only 4-3 LB rated high. No 4-3 LB is worth the #9 pick (Kuechly maybe)
WR: Floyd could move SS to the slot and make him dangerous. Gettis and Lafell would be role players. Floyd has 4.45 speed, is 6' 3" tall and weighs 220. He is a good blocker with great hands. He would be dangerous and make our offense incredible.
He could easily be the BPA.
If Smith hits the wall or is injured, you will see teams going after Cam pretty hard because they will feel comfortable with single coverage on Gettis and Lafell. They are decent to good.

floyd could very easily be bpa and i wouldn't mind the pick... but with all the holes we have, this place would be unbearable for weeks if we took him
I don't know man, Kuechly would still be there and he'd be BPA too. If Floyd was the pick I'd be ecstatic about it for sure since he'd be a great target for Cam.
