I am not against getting WR in the first round as long as he is polished enough to be worthy of a 1st Round pick. That would mean he is ready to START game 1. I don't want the best WR in this draft if he doesn't meet the criteria for a first round WR.

I don't care if he can run 4.1. I want to know he can catch in traffic, run a good route and produce starting game 1. If any WR is not polished enough to do this. He is not worthy of the first round pick.

We cannot waste our first pick on a player that is going to be ready in 2014 or 2015.

not the same thing. we made fun of them because they traded up and gave up so much. we aren't talking about trading up, we're talking about taking one where we are in the first or second round.

and about us laughing at the falcons for giving up so much, how many games have they won the last couple years because of that passing game? oh yeah...


true true, but how many have we lost due to no push from our interior line?

If Allen or Patterson is there when we pick, I hope we pull the trigger.

Rated the #1 WR in this class...

His weaknesses worry me. Especially the knee injury. We already have Gettis. IMO I don't this this draft class has a First round worthy WR.

we didn't win more last year because we didn't score enough. we didn't stay on the field long enough. we didn't extend enough drives. we didn't get to the red zone enough. we didn't get into the endzone enough. our WRs couldn't get open enough and they didn't catch enough and they couldn't do enough when they got their hands on the ball. the OL couldn't block enough because cam couldnt find open and reliable targets enough.

we need more weapons for cam. we do need more help on the OL but i think we need more help at WR. the OL can't make the WRs become better targets. they shouldn't have to block for 5 seconds because cam can't find a WR who can get open. with shula at OC we're gonna have to be able to have more guys who can make big plays.

and does anyone think we can actually count on smitty staying active all season? we are on borrowed time with him. what's that WR corps going to look like without him? i can't imagine anyone but the most blind homers thinking that we'd be ok without him.

From my very limited understanding it seems like 14 is too high to take a WR this year, although I do agree it is an issue that deserves attention

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


lol this is coming from the guy who says, undoubtably, there's no #1 WR talent in the draft.

Remember if there's not Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, or Michael Floyd (reminder koolkatluke said that Michael Floyd would be the first WR in this draft, despite the fact that he had a late 1st round grade most of last year.) then don't draft a WR. Ever.

We're kinda in no man's land or a position of flexibility depending on how you look at it with our draft slot. It almost asks us to go BPA which I would be perfectly fine with. However, I just don't see WRs being that high this year. 2nd round and beyond would be fine with me for us to snag a reciever with it being a deep class. But we got issues on the line (both sides) that require immidiate attention.

I'm still not convinced that WR is a dire need this year. Going WR for our first pick, we're essentially drafting an immediate #2 and future #1 reciever in a fairly weak draft class at the top for that position. Draft an OL or DT, we're plugging in a guy that will not only start immediately and make an instant impact, but will solidify a position that makes an impact EVERY single down. A #2 WR may catch the ball 5-7 times a game, help out the run game on tosses, and redirct the secondary every pass play. It's a luxury pick and we're in no position to reach for one this year.

his knee injury was a pcl strain which required no surgery(only rest). he has played and produced 3 years and had 98 catches as a soph.dude is a legit WR prospect, runs good to decent routes, good hands, size, not scared to go across the middle, and turns into a rb when the ball is in his hands.
