IMO, our top 6 is:

Smith

LaFell

Pilares

Ginn Jr

Gettis

Adams

In that order due to what the coaches thought of them last season. Throw in Hixon and then Adams and Gettis are on the bubble. Possibly Pilares too but not as much as those 2.

If we draft a WR with our first pick as well, Gettis and Adams are gone IMO.

And I only mention Gettis because for some reason Rivera has him in his doghouse. He was healthy at the end of last season and didn't play him at all.

i think it's gonna come down to keeping either Pilares or Adams. I dunno I just think like Pilares has shown a little more then Adams. It will be an interesting preseason battle. Armanti is as good as gone I hope.

I just cant see how Adams will be cut. He has more potential than Pilares. And, you just dont cut a player like that after a rookie year. Pilares hasnt shown much in my opinion since he was drafted. People likes to get carried away after one play (TD vs ATL). He still hasnt won me by that one play.

We'll most likely go with 6 WRs again this year, maybe 7 depending on the number of QBs on the squad. I think Lamont is more of a flex TE. Hixon would be a solid pick up and strenghten our WR corps, but a future #1 WR is still a must.

In my opinion if we add Hixon and a receiver(1/st2nd):

Smitty

Lafail

Ginn

Adams

Hixon

Draft

Gettis, AE, and Pilares are goners. Adams is safe bc he's a Rivera guy even though he was in his dog pound for most of the season last year.

We have none. NADA.

Im not saying we should not go WR. Im the biggest receiver at 14 fan on this forum.

Im just saying if Gettleman do sign Hixon, he's putting himself in a situation to take a DT at 14.

Re-read it again. You keep on asking me the same question every time after I give you the same answer back every time..

Are you sure? I can ask the question again another way if you want. ;)

If we go defense at 14 I won't be pissed. I'm just saying, don't put it past Gettleman to purge our sub par WR group.

I think Hixon would be a great signing for us. I watched his 2012 highlight reel. I know it's a highlight reel but the thing I noticed about him is that he makes several catches in several games. He's not like Murphy or Edwards who makes a catch every 3 games. He has the ability to go on a route so to speak.He also makes tough catches.

He makes our depth better. A #2/3 caliber WR competing for the 3rd and 4th WR spot is better than having Pilares and Edwards competing for the same spot every year. Good move by Gettleman.

well Pilares also plays on the coverage units of special teams which Adams doesn't do. I just see no reason for us at all to keep Adams of we go wr round one or sign hixon.

I'm just glad gettleman isn't as impressed with our existing WR corps like some in here.

and if we pick him up, i don't think that it eliminates the possibility of drafting one early.

I've been expecting our WR to undergo a serious overhaul this season and would be a bit surprised to see smitty and lafell be the only remaining WRs from last year.

Pilares is sure handed. He picked up a couple 1st downs for us in 3rd down situations. He's not amazing or anything but he is a solid player.

We have a very odd WR corp right now. That said, I hope Gettis and Pilares are the two that make the cut if we do add two more WR in FA and Draft.

I bet Barden stops I as well.

Reasonable possibility.
