Amazing Talents at the WR Postition in 2013

99 posts in this topic

You can't have everything in one draft. When was the last time we filled all our needs in one single draft. You take your biggest needs in the draft (FS/DT) and try to develop them and fill the rest through FA.

WR would be an amazing addition but maybe one or two out of a draft will come in and make instant impact. Only AJ green made impact in 2011. Julio did well but not great like Green. Blackmon, Hill, and Jeffery aren't doing anything this year. Do you really think a rookie receiver is going to solve our whole offense next year? There's no AJ green in this next draft.

What does this have to do with my hope/expectation that we won't be picking in the top five in the 2014 draft??

Sure, why would you trade back and take one of them. You can't argue that theyre not talented. They'll be really good receivers but it's a process of work and development.

"amazing talents", funny bro

I know, I was just messing around. I do wish we would have the comfort of knowing who will be our #1 WR when Steve retires.

Maybe we should trade back and get one of these "Amazing talents" at the WR position in mid 1st.

All these receivers have great talents but I don't see any of them being a top10 except for maybe Allen. The rest should be around no.15- mid 2nd.

So you tell me you don't want one of these "amazing talents".

Bc to me this:

"So we're just planning on sucking next year, because I guarantee Lee will be gone before pick five...."

Sounds like you're saying we'll be bad next year without a "rookie" WR if we choose to take say Star and a FS in the 2nd. I'm just saying that Star and say a Robert Lest, even without a receiver in the draft that we could be better next year than this year.

I'm sorry you misunderstood, my point was that no matter the position we draft this upcoming draft I really expect us to be better then a team who's picking in the top five of the 2014 draft. If we're not picking in the top 5-7 in 2014 we won't be getting Lee or Watkins....

But how are we going to get a #1 talent WR in next year's draft assuming we have more wins next year than we will this year? I would hate to have to trade up like the Falcons did for Julio. This year might be the last year we have a top 10 pick for awhile (hopefully) and our last best chance to score the best WR in a draft class.

Didn't say I didn't want them.

I see.

OKay, well I wasnt just saying we're aiming for Lee or Watkins in 2012. You gotta know theyre not the only two receivers that might come out in 2014. Remember this time last year, everyone were talking Hunter and Woods only. Well now theres Twill, Patterson, Da'rick, Austin and etc. names all in consideration now.

And you never know whos staying or coming out in 2013. Hearing that maybe Woods and Patterson may stay. If they stay, add their names to 2014.

Not all receivers go in the top 10.

For example,

2012: Kendall Wright #20, AJ Jenkins #30, Stephen Hill #43, Alshon Jefferey #45

2011, Jon Baldwin # 26, Titus Young #44, Torrey Smith #58, Greg Little #59, Randall Cobb #64

2010: Demaryius Thomas #22, Dez Bryant #24

2009: Jeremy Maclin #19, Percy Harvin # 22, Hakeem Nicks #29, Kenny Britt #30

2008: Desean Jackson #49

    • 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?
