It is very early, but I see no way we draft a WR in the first. Of course, free agency will change this to a degree (yes, we will get below the cap by about $8 million) but Gettleman and RR have already told us what our focus is---big guys. Protect the QB and balance the offense. To balance the offense, we will actually run it more (my guess). We will protect Cam and stop the run.

That means a RG and maybe a T. There are a lot of ways to do this. You could cut/trade Gross and sign a RG and a DT, for example, then draft a LT.

you're leaving out the part where he also said we need touchdown scorers...and i think he actually said that before saying something about the big guys, and it could even be that he meant WRs that are big guys. he didn't specifically say OL. also...he's coming from a winning culture that has picked WRs early every year for the past 5-6 years. they know, as he does, that you have to have a good receiving corps, which we don't really have.

So we finally get rid of armanti, pilares and Murphy. This has made my off-season.

Why I think we'll take a WR:

After Smitty we have: LaFail, AE, Gettis, Murphy, and Pilares (excluding Adams and Lamont)

Who is the Julio Jones in this draft class, is there one?


Cordarralle Patterson. 6'3" 205 lbs, 4.3 forty.

Loads of potential, just needs some basic instruction.

And for a team that holes at DT, O-line and Secondary. He would be a wasted pick if we have to wait for him to be ready to play.

I would not mind this as option 2. But I really want a DT/NT in the first. If we go WR in the first, we better get a DT in the second. Or OT.

You can win with just ok DT's. Big guys who can hold up against the run is all that is required. Maake Kemoeatu and Isaac Spopuag(sp.) are the starting super bowl NT. The Lions are still the Lions after picking Suh and Fairley.

Why the fug would he be a wasted pick if he would automatically start as the #2 receiver and PR/KR???

I'd bet money that he doesn't start over Lafell if we were to pick him. I don't even think he will be a top 20 pick. He is to raw and and only has 1 year of playing time. No way in hell he'd be ready to start that early.

If we were going WR I would choose him for the upside but no way in hell would I do it in the 1st round.

Well we still need to get some OK DT.
