I have been a big supporter of trading down or drafting a WR in the 2nd round. But it is looking like if we wait til the 2nd round there might not be a viable WR at the 44th pick.

Most of you think I have been on the bandwagon to draft Austin at 14 because Im labeled a WVU Homer. That wasnt the case until now. I would much prefer us to trade down to the mid 20 picks and grab a extra pick in the 2nd or 3rd round. But that most likely wont happen. Looking at the latest mocks a lot of WR thought to be avaible at the 44th pick are moving up to the late first round.

So with said the 14th pick should be Austin or Patterson. If we can trade down to the mid 20's then we can grab either Hunter , Hopkins or Allen. To me we need to grab one of these in the draft. Honestly I couldnt care which one but anything past them wont help us down the road.

I think Patton is in that group with Hopkins..but darts on the board after that. D Rogers is worthy.

Wide receiver is one of the deepest positions in the draft this year.

Cordarrelle Patterson
Keenan Allen
Tavon Austin
Quinton Patton
Justin Hunter
Deandre Hopkins
Robert Woods
Terrance Williams
Cobi Hamilton
Da'Rick Rogers
Markus Wheaton
Aaron Dobson
Marquis Goodwin
Ryan Swope

You really think there's gonna be a run on all of those before we pick in the 2nd?

I have a feeling that "V. Cruz" or some later round draft stud is in our future, so instead we pick OL or DL. Too many big bodies at 14 to pass up.

Trading back would be ideal.

This fanbase I swear.

"LET'S KEEP PASSING ON WR TALENT LET'S FIND THAT DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH I MEAN IT WORKED WITH ARMANTI."

I mean seriously this Fanbase gets upset when Hurney tried to do that but then still wants Gettlemen to do it and this is why our roster is so weak holy poo.

I'm not against drafting OT in the first but

I'm still not sold on a fugin' Guard in the top 15 no matter how good they are.

If Fisher/Johnson drop to us though I'd take them in a heartbeat.
