This is all well and good but can he run block and can he catch rockets?

From watching the video I noticed two things...

1) He is very athletic and makes catches that a third string wide receiver has no business making.

2) He's very fast for his size.

I wouldn't jump to conclusions just yet. Maybe Gettleman is going all in on offense this season.

Assuming if we sign Hixon and draft a receiver in the 1st/2nd, thats a bunch of receivers going into the season: Smitty, Lafail, Ginn, Gettis, Pilares, AE, Lamont, Adams, Hixon, and WR(Draft). That's 10 recievers. Who are you going to cut? I just dont see a high round receiver if HIxon is signed

Just watched his 2012 highlights. Gotta say, while he wasn't flashy or anything... he still had 7 minutes of highlights as a #3 receiver playing behind Nicks and Cruz. I bet you'd be hard pressed to get even 5 minutes of LaFell footage last season... not to mention Murphy, he probably has 5 minutes of drops alone.

Looks like he can also make some pretty damn tough catches, hell, he could probably start over LaFell.

We need "legitimate threats". Of those listed how many fit that bill in your opinion?

Bare in mind Hixon is not on the roster as of yet.

I can't see Armanti keep making it past training camp. That was Hurney's guy.

I agree. I'm not interested in still seeing what the Hurney crew can or can't do. AE, Pilares, & Gettis are gone imo.

I think its obvious there's some friction or something going on w/Gettis. AE & Pilares are a dime a dozen.

Chuck:

Getting Hixon would help fill our receiving corps but handpicking your own rookie to become a potential #1 in the draft is still wise.

I honestly think Hixon would be an upgrade on our roster not named Smith.

That being said if we do sign him I wouldn't be surprised if we still look for more WR talent in the draft.

Other than 89, none. But, since when did we go after a legitimate receiver?

I don't care if we have a new GM now. We all want to believe that Gettleman will come in and change Hurney's bad philosophy of ignoring the receiver in the Draft. But if we keep on adding receivers in FA, I just dont see how we are going to add a legitimate receiver in the 1st or 2nd. We're so packed at that position already to go and add two more. We should be looking at a DT or FS, than a WR in Hixon.
