I kept thinking Barnidge could become that TE, but our offense was pretty good with Shockey. Smitty is remarkable, but he has already slowed. All those fights he gets into with the CB is, in my opinion, a veteran tactic to get into the head of a young CB. I think he got the idea when Deangelo Hall was in ATL.
Our WRs....other than 89... Meh
I'd like to grab another beast TE. Everyone here is on this WR kick....you get a big fast TE to add with Olsen you can rip apart any defense
Food for thought
Smitty is past due to hit the wall, and where will we be then? I think their demands about WR are fair--when was the last time we drafted or brought in a good WR in free agency? It has been 10 years or more.
Do we think we can address the OL woes with a free agent or two? If so, maybe TE and WR are areas we address.
I do not see a WR worth #14, but I think there will be some very good ones at the end of the first round and into the second. I would love Patton or Hunter in the second round. However, I also think the pickings are good in the second round for a CB.
In my opinion, the first round will be beef, either on the defensive side of the ball or the offensive. I am looking Lane Johnson or a Sheldon Richardson/Jonathan Hankins..\
Since I see value at DT, CB, and WR in the second round, I would not mind seeing a trade where we drop to the bottom of the first and add a second rounder.
