Guess no TAVON :(
Likely Sheldon RIchardson or Star if he falls to 14.

If we nab him Smitty-Rookie-LaFell-Hixon-Ginn sounds like a formidable crew. At least compared to what we're used to.

This would not take a WR out of the equation in the draft imo. But we haven't signed him so...

This is good news but I don't think this automatically says no to a 1st round receiver. It would just give us the ability to literally draft the best available player considering we will have few GLARING holes

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

I completely agree a good combo of size and speed on the field. I would definitely feel better about 3 wide receiver sets with this receiving corp

I can't seen it being a more than two-year deal if he is signed. Combine that with his injury history, I can't see how this would put WR out of the question in this years draft.

If we do sign Hixon or any other receiver from here on, I think that would pretty much seal the faith on a WR in the 1st or 2nd. Base on the moves in FA, its looking like Gettleman is putting us toward to taking a DT at 14.

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.

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.
