Barring a terrible combine, if any receiver is available at 14 we will be selecting Allen

Haven't looked over this years draft class, but just from mild observations, this seems like a weak receiver class.

Sounds like any impact received will come in form of a free agent. So I wouldn't get your hopes up getting a number 1 wr this year.



Thank you Mr. Claw. Some people want a wr so bad that they are willing to pump up players with a lot of ? to get one.

I'm all for getting Cam Weapons but how about protecting him first. He was sacked so much this year that he didn't have much time to throw the ball.

Allen is, CP could be, Woods will be.



That's a lot of cyrstal ball thinking you're doing there.

Allen plays the game like a man. We need that type of receiver

if we manage to fill some offensive line holes in free agency to the point where drafting one in the first isn't an absolute imperative, i'd be ok with WR.

To me, this class looks incredibly weak for 1st round caliber WRs, but probably the best I've ever seen at 2nd round WRs. My (realistic) dream scenario is Hankins in the 1st and Hunter in the 2nd. But I'd be happy with Patterson, Rogers, Hopkins, or maybe Austin or Woods the 2nd too.

Patton in round 2 would be great. Patterson and Allen will be gone by then.

if bpa is a WR at #14 you have to take him.some people fail to realize that some of those sacks were coverage sacks bc WR could not get open or seperate from coverage. we also have a GM who comes from an organization that has took WR early and often even when they had decent threats on the outside. why every WR drafted in the 1st have to be AJ Green or Julio?if there was one of those guys in the draft than they will be gone long before 14.

there are several guys who could be #1 WRs in this draft. have the speed, hands, and route running ability to become #1s.

Yeah, yeah,yeah. I hope we draft WR from this avg. Class. So when all this explosiveness doesn't happen like you think.


So you think Gettleman would be an idiot if he drafted a WR at 14? The point being is this, if they draft one at 14, I don't think they are just reaching on an average player.

While nearly all of the WRs are a bit raw in places, I think this is a very good year to find a #1 WR in the draft. Having said that, I think we need to address the OL in a huge way. Does that mean with the first pick? Not necessarily.

In round 1, I think we have to take Lane Johnson or Chance Warmack if they are on the board. Johnson improves RT until Gross proves he can no longer handle LT. If they are gone, then I say you have to go WR, CB, or DT. There are no CBs after Milliner worth #14. I think that Allen and Patterson are probably going to show why they are worth a mid first round selection in Indy.

Looking at the draft's second round, it would be hard to let a WR silp by if you did not take one in the first. On the other hand, that is where the CBs who could step in an play are too.

Trading down is the best plan.

Here are the WRs who could become #1s:

Allen
Patterson
Patton
Rogers
Hopkins
Woods
Hunter
Williams
These should be very good #2 WRs with an outside shot of developing into a #1:
King
Dobson
Austin
Stills
These should be solid pros:
Swope
Harper
Bailey
Vernon
Matthews

However, common sense says you do not shop for another WR while the OL is in shambles. Protect Cam, the passing game gets better. Improve the run game, the passing game gets better. Add a WR, you do not protect Cam or improve the run game.

SLEEPER WR PROSPECTS: Mellette (Elon), Swope (Tex A&M), Vernon (Duke) and Matthews (Vandy).

If you make your decision by watching these Big 12 offenses that rack up 55 points per game and 650 yards of offense, you are certain to be disappointed. The Tennessee boys (Hunter, Patterson, Rogers) are good because Bray was often erratic and they played SEC defenses. I do not know what to think of Bailey and Austin, for example, because they were in that WV offense and their conference that seems to have banned recruiting defensive players in or around 2004.

i'm sorry but isn't this the same reasoning that the falcons used when they got julio jones and we made fun of them for it when they had other glaring needs that needed to be addressed? Don't get me wrong, we need another WR, but we need more help on the lines than anything else in my opinion. truth be told, olsen is our #2 receiver, and a damn good one at that. if we can find a gem, i say go for it, but otherwise, I'd prefer we address DT or OL.

for those complaining about the oline there is very good talent to be found in the 2nd round. WR in the 1st, OT is the 2nd, and a OG in free agency would make this offense explosive

From my perspective,There is more WR talent in the second than OL talent that can start day 1. At 14, you have to question Patterson's rawness and Allen's rather limited straight line speed. You do not, however, question Chance Warmack the same way.

In the second round, you should have players like Justin Hunter, Quinton Patton, DaRick Rogers, Robert Woods, Terrence Williams, DeAndre Hopkins, etc.

I see Allen, Patterson, and possibly Austin as the only first rounders, even though one or two of the names above will slip into the round.
