Seriously.... either one of these guys look good enuff to be our new number one or at least two. Hard to imagine all this talent was at one point under one roof. I personally would take hunter and da'rick rodgers over patterson,but he is a talent in his own right. Da'rick will most likely be around in the 3rd because of character concerns,so assuming we could trade down at some point he could be a real steal. I personally love this wr class. I think rodgers might be the best of the bunch but will be over looked.

Justin Hunter


cordarrelle patterson


da'rick rogers

Cyprien in the first and Hunter in the second = a good draft.


I really do like Sheldon though. :(

I just don't see richardson really helping us. I mean he could be better and younger than dwan but they pretty much do the same thing. we need a big nasty space eater.

Usually when there's multiple NFL receiving prospects on one team, there ends up being one stud and a couple of duds. It happened at UNC a few years ago. Hakeem Nicks was the stud with Brandon Tate and Brooks Foster being the duds.

Just for giggles but how long has Dwan been good?? And do you expect the same production he had last year?

I understand what your saying,But how does drafting another pass rushing defensive tackle help us win ball games? We have two studs on the outside and Dwan is at least serviceable for another year. we would look almost exactly the same on defense if we didn't get some kind of run stopper or coverage player on defense. Pass rushing Dt should be a after thought.

Hunter is my favorite WR in this class. If we were able to get him in the 2nd, I'd be ok with just about anyone (within reason) in the 1st. Even Vaccaro or Cyprien or Floyd or one of the other guys I don't really care for.

We hope he's at least serviceable. But we must remember last year was the best he ever had and we still couldn't stop the run effectively.

Plus we are really making fast judgement on some of these players. Some of these guys can stop the run as well as pass rush. It would be nice to have both in one player sometimes.

Rogers WILL end up in trouble. That is a scientific fact.
Hunter has the talent and athletic ability to be AJ Green, just not the killer instinct I'd like to see.
Patterson gets knocked a lot lately, but as Jerry Maguire once said, "there's no proof of anything other than this guy is a sensational athlete." Patterson is going to be a star, or my given Christian name isn't "RockytopVol."

I agree with the Humter statement. He has elite Randy Moss like skills with all the finesse..just not going to make those tough catches after a big hit. I still like him.

I forget how explosive Patterson as I championed him after the college season. All are better options than Allen IMO bc I dont see anything that stands oit on Keenan Allen's game tape than Keary Colbert or Jarrett in college(who were both better in college)

I would consider either one in the third, and perhaps Hunter in the second. Rogers has bigger question marks, so Idk if he is worth the pick, especially if Ryan Swope, Aaron Dobson, Kenny Stills and Justin Brown are still on the board.




Per nfl.com's profile

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS
Physical specimen with power and strength. Works very well over the middle, and is extremely difficult to bring down after the catch. Gets off the line well for a player of his size. Shows flexibility in adjusting to the football, making difficult catches, and getting out of his routes. Uses his body to shield defenders from making a play on the football. Smooth, with good body control when going up for the football. Strong hands allow him to grab low and wide passes adeptly. Physical run blocker when engaged, will sustain through the play.
WEAKNESSES
Off-field maturity and on-field effort have been issues. Stops his route at times if not the primary target. Body language on the field can be defeating. Lacks great explosiveness to run by corners, no extra gear. Will struggle to track the football at times. Not a very instinctual receiver, doesn't always run the routes he should, doesn't fight to get open when the play breaks down.
NFL COMPARISON
Greg Little
BOTTOM LINE
Rogers is a physical specimen with strong hands who overpowered defenders in his routes and after the catch on his way to second-team All-SEC status in 2011 (67 catches, 1,040 yards, nine TDs), and to a dominating season (78 catches for 1,207 yards and 11 TDs) while at Tennessee Tech. His immaturity off the field caused him to be dismissed from Tennessee before the 2012 season, and thus the biggest questions with Rogers will be about character concerns. While he's not a quick-twitch, vertical threat, Rogers is a big, physical receiver who works well across the middle, and has a tremendous deal of talent

I m surde rodgers will have his issues. But i do believe in his talent on the field. Maybe a good support group can turn him in the right direction. I think his catch ability is better than the other two. And he plays with a edge. Look at the run after catch he drags alot of guys.

Ok. Give me McCullers...next year.


But I do like Patterson, Hunter, Rogers and Rivera would be a nice pick up in the later rounds.
