So I know the issues he's had with drops, but it seemed he started to be more reliable once the season wore on. As I was thinking about who we should draft and coveting one of those receivers who has speed to burn, I so happened to look up Murphy's time and it looks like he ran a 4.32. So he's got the speed and the size to be an elite receiver, he knows our playbook, and he's Cam's best friend on the team. I'm starting to change my mind about a 1st or 2nd round receiver because I really think Louis might just have a breakout year. I know this will probably be an unpopular opinion, but what do you think?

If we could count on him to step up this year, we could focus on line and secondary and then take a slot guy in later rounds.

he'll be here. he and cam have a great chemistry and i think we'll see his numbers increase dramatically this season, even if we do go grab a mike wallace type guy.

If I recall correctly, Murphy had a leg injury that slowed him down. He sure as hell didn't look quick this year.

He's a good fourth receiver, and a fine 3rd receiver. I'd be fine with a receiver to replace Smith at some point, but this draft isn't exactly flush with them. Unless the top, or maybe second guy, drops to us, it would be foolish to take a WR in a draft so loaded at other positions we need. if one of the top 3 tackles, offensively or defensively is there, it just makes more sense to go there right now. Between Smith, Lafell, Olsen, and hopefully Murphy on a cheap contract, we don't really need another big money or high pick receiver. Though it would be nice.

I'm all for surrounding our young quarterback with talent. But I would want offensive line talent more at this point actually.

Drops way too many passes, I'd rather let him go and give Gettis a shot as I still think he could be very good

Murphy is a proven playmaker in the NFL. Regarding the drops, I think he's adjusting to Cam more than anything. Not many QBs in the league zip the ball like him and if you don't have strong but soft hands, you're gonna have a hard time holding on to the ball.

This is one of the reasons I like Barnidge so much. I know he hasn't been very productive, but I attribute that to his lack of opportunities more than anything. If the ball is anywhere near him, he goes and gets it - including those lasers from Killa Cam.

I was very dissapointed in Murphy. I know what he is capable of.

we absolutely should not and will not go into next season with just the guys we had on the WR corps last year. we will either be picking up one in the first couple rounds or a good one in FA or via trade (for a draft pick).

murphy can't/shouldn't/won't be relied upon to step up into a WR1 or 2 role next year or any time in the future. they need to act like last year is as good as it's going to get with him.

We have enough receivers for the moment, but resigning Murphy would not at all be a bad idea. Knowing the playbook, chemistry and all make him a much better option than a late rounder. Plus, Gettis, Pilares and others coming back will make it croweded at the position. We have invested picks in the postition already, let's see what we have there.

We have gotten too used to mediocre to barely average receivers behind Steve Smith these last few years.

I'm tired of it.
