A 2nd Round WR & our BPA Strategy

30 posts in this topic

This WR group is getting more interesting by the day. We know both Gettleman and Rivera stressed the need for playmakers so I'm sure we're taking a look at most of them.

Below I've made a list of the top-10 or so of the wideout class. At first, you'd have to imagine at least 2 from the top two tiers will be available by the time we pick in the 2nd but it may not be so. The bottom line: If Patterson is gone by the time we pick #14, a lot can happen before #44. So, who will realistically still be available? Let's look at the crop from my perspective (3 tiers):

Cordarrelle Patterson x

Tavon Austin x

Justin Hunter

Keenan Allen

DeAndre Hopkins

Terrance Williams

Quinton Patton

Markus Wheaton

Robert Woods

Marquise Goodwin

Da'Rick Rodgers

Cobi Hamilton

Stedman Bailey

Now consider the teams that could need a WR between our picks: (R1) Texans, Seahawks, Vikings, Steelers, Patriots (R2) Cardinals, Bills, Jets...that's at least 8 teams off the top of my head that could use a WR at the top of the draft and I could list a few more.

A few questions:

Who could realistically be available in the 2nd round? Who's gonna actually be there from that middle-tier above?, because I think they could all be gone. Ideally, I'd love to see someone from that group being drafted by us in the 2nd.

Right now, I think Allen and Hunter are definitely gone. Possibly Patton, Hopkins and T-Will. So where does the talent really drop off to where we are better just waiting because our BPA could very well be at another position like Philip Thomas, Bakhtiari, or Brandon Williams? You have the likes of Vernon/Fuller/Stills/King later in the 4th.

So, would anyone beyond the top-7 be worth it in the 2nd? or are we better off waiting?

I really would not mind taking Patterson at 14, then Rambo with our second pick, rest of the draft go BPA

I was posting this under the impression Patterson would be gone which is quite likely imo.

I think we should take Travon Austin with our 14th pick if Patterson isn't there because our team drafts by bast available player and I think at the time Travon wull be at the top but if we dont take him in the first then we should take Robert Woods

If that's the case then yes I'd be much more inclined to wait till the second to take a receiver than reach in the first

Again, not the point of my post, that was the given going into it.

There are 30 spots between our picks. The 2nd round names people keep throwing around could ALL potentially be gone. So at what point are we better off waiting until the later rounds if the top guys go before 44? There's a lot of WR needy teams between our picks.

so you listed 8 teams that need a receiver and think because of that all of them will draft one? Yes there is always the potential that none of those 2nd tier are receivers are there by our pick, but statistics and previous drafts dictate that there will likely be 3 or 4 of those to choose from

also I doubt Austin is going before 14, a fast 40 time doesn't mean that much unless you're al davis

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
