Just because it is 'deep', does it mean it is good.

This draft class is full of #2-3 WR. Only a handful are considered to be #1 and even then they aren't a solid option.


I agree totally with this.

ah yes and right on cue here's kkl to explain to us why brandon lafell deserves another year to show "this is the year he become "dominate" guys!!!"


What is it with you and this insatiable hate for LaFell?

Funny how you want to do that with the DT position. Which is just as important.


yeah you caught me.

Despite the fact I said I'd be happy with Star, Jenkins, Floyd (If by the grace of god he drops) or Richardson.

I'm saying fug the DT position.

You caught me KKL. Will you never stop outwitting me?

Pointing out out a WR's flaws and saying we need an upgrade =/= Hate of a player.

What KKL Blindly defending a player with misguided "highest catch percentage." stats and ignoring those flaws and blaming them on everyone else but LaFell.

He literally thinks half of the WRs in this draft won't be an upgrade over LaFell.

I like Lafell and Gettis. I think both deserve roster spots. Not sure if both deserve to #2 receivers or worse #1 receivers due to Smith's age.

The point of this is

WR, OL, DT and CB are all needs on this roster.

Although unless it's Dee Millinier, Xavier Rhodes or marcus Trufant I think we should Pass on CBs.
There's some solid OTs and OGs after the first round and said could be same of WRs and DTs.

Whatever we take in the first we're going to try to address a need but really none of those three can really be ignored this draft.

Yeah I agree.

LaFell is a great slot guy and a even better #3. Solid hands and firce over the middle but.

Struggles to get separation from bigger, stronger, more physical CBs and can get shutdown some games.

Hey hypocrite I pointed out the flaws in some of the WR in this draft and got labeled a hater.

Sorry if I point out facts and you're not willing to acknowledge them.

Fact when thrown to Lafell has a high catch rate.

Fact no 2nd/3rd option put up great numbers in a Option type offense.

Fact lafell has improve his numbers every year he's been here.

I just point out facts sorry.

LOL just seems like you are always taking shots at him. Smith and LaFell are the only true option we have in the WR core. The rest are garbage.


@ Rags, Nah bro. Like I said, it seems like growl had a personal vendetta against LaFell. He's a serviceable WR.

Unfortunately this draft will only address one or two needs. Gettleman will have to decide which is a higher priority in this draft.. Protecting Cam or giving Cam weapons.

This is why it is so important to draft WR in the first round. It is the only way of ensuring an upgrade over Lafell.

Quality guards will be found in later rounds. Cannot say the same for WR.

There maybe only 1 Wr that's a instant upgrade over Lafell in this draft. So just taking 1 in the 1st isn't a sure thing?
