Better be done this year! I'm not gonna jump on the wagon of wait for a Lee or Watkins in 2014.

If Richardson or Hankins are gone by 14, we better take Keenan Allen if he's there. If not take someone in the 2nd.

If we have to again and somehow get the chance to draft a Lee, Watkins or Amari Cooper in 2014, go ahead. Add one of them with Allen or whoever we take in 2013. Now well have two amazing threat for Cam to play with.



I agree with most this. I'd rather not take a DT in the first but if he is the BPA that fits our biggest need them i'm all for it. If they're gone and Allen is there I'd take him but there's a kid from Tenessee Tech who might be better. They say he's a Julio Jones clone. I think his last name is Rogers...If we could get Richardson or Hankins in the 1st and pick this kid in the 2nd it would be a win, win situation

I believe our number one receiver will emerge very soon, but in the meantime we should look to draft a number two receiver in this year's draft. Smitty is still a great receiver even at his age. As much as we complain about looking for a number one, there are teams out there currently and in the past who had no legitimate threat at receiver. Right now receiver is not a weakness with this team.

The only compatible team I can think of who doesn't have wrs is the Rams. And they're winning game bc of their Defense. Give Rams just one true no.1 and they can be pretty exciting.

Our defense is getting better but I don't think they're as good as the Rams yet.

Da'rick Rogers is really talented but has off field issues. If JR isn't afraid to take a chance and is willing to gamble on Rogers, it'd be something fun to watch. I seen comparison to Julio as well but as I look closer, I think he can be a Dez type of player for us.

Our receiving options are better than the Colts, Redskins, 49ers, and Vikings. (I would also say the Bengals)

Better than Vikings and Skins yea. But what? Colts (Wayne, Avery, Fleener, Allen), 49ers (Crabtree, Davis, Mannigham, Moss), and Bengals (Green simple handily beats our whole receiving corps).

We don't have a number one receiver on this team. A couple of "maybe" number twos, and a bunch of three and four receivers, but no number one. We have to go out and get one, because like it's been stated before, we've been putting it off for too long. I shutter to think what would happen if Smith were to go down with an injury. We'd be in a world of hurt, and Smith is at the age now where those small hampering injuries are more likely to pop up. Smith should be a #2 receiver at this point in his career. He's not the same out there.
Allen, Rodgers, or Hunter please.

All the Colts have is Wayne. (I think Steve Smith is better than him) The other guys are still developing. Olsen is better than Fleener, and Avery is just a speedy receiver. (Is that Donnie Avery by the way? I know I can look it up, but I'm too lazy to do it right now) B) As far as the 49ers, Crabtree is definitely becoming a good WR, but Smitty is better than him by a long shot. Moss is old, barely plays. Mannigham is a nice third option, but a third option none the less. Their best option is still Davis, and he's a TE. I'll take our corps over those guys.

AJ Green is definitely exceptional, but seeing as he's still young, I refuse to say he is better than our whole corps. I don't want to disrespect Smitty like that. ^_^

We won't have the cap to get a top FA WR. Gonna draft one.There are a bunch of good ones projected in the second round this year.

We don't have a cast for a number 1 to emerge from....

Smith is getting old....and each consecutive 16 game season he puts in means the odds get higher he spends time hurt in the near future. Each year Smith is noticeably regressing in different aspects of his game. Father Time is coming for Steve....when he catches him we likely will be left empty handed.

We need to draft a potential number 1 in the 2nd....not a #2.
