Lamont Bryant

With all this speculation and talk of us taking a WR at #14, a couple interesting tidbits came to mind. In Gettleman's pre-draft presser he mentioned (not in his exact words) that sometimes the talent is already on the roster, like his Victor Cruz comparison. Every NYG fan wanted to take a WR in the draft, but management knew they already had someone special in Cruz. I also remember the AMA on Reddit with Byron Bell and Armond Smith, when asked who was the most underrated player on the roster, Armond mentioned Lamont Bryant was VERY good.

The conspiracy theorist leads me to believe that maybe we already have that WR on the roster (*cough Lamont *cough), with the addition of Ginn and Hixon (and I personally believe Lafell will break out due to a contract year), does this make a WR early in the draft obsolete? I still want a WR in the 2nd round (or at least the 4th) but I personally feel this solidifies our need for a DB at #14.

Anyways just some food for thought. Let the heckling and know-all analysis begin!

I also believe that David Gettis could be VERY good.

Visiting with 10+ 1st and 2nd round WR's doesn't seem like a smokescreen on an early pick for the position.

i think he's great for the practice squad.

gives the defense a big body to practice against.

beyond that and a couple decent catches in practice...meh. don't understand the hype. just a bunch of wishful thinking.

have at it, tho.

We will take a WR in the first two rounds if he is BPA regardless of who we have on our roster.

Bryant could be on the final roster depending on who is cut.

I don't understand the hype with Bryant or Gettis. Like Rayzor said, it's just a bunch of wishful thinking on the fans part. Bryant probably will probably still be on the PS come next year. Hopefully we address the WR position with one of our early draft picks. We don't need to depend on Gettis or Bryant breaking out

Hype is hype. Don't get caught up in it until they prove something.

I'd rather draft a guy who is expected to be a proven stud WR than rely on a practice squad guy hopefully exploding.

My biggest question about Bryant is, is there enough practice time for him to prove he belongs? We have a poo ton of WRs on the roster trying to prove something. It is going to be difficult for any of the bottom feeders to show what they have. I guess, when you get an opportunity. You had better make the most of it. My biggest hope for Bryant is that he put in a poo ton of work in this offseason. He will only get so many chances to show out. I am rooting for him.

Overall I agree with Rayzor's remark, more so wishful thinking on my part.

However, I don't think you can compare Bryant and Gettis as Bryant has yet to showcase his skills in a game atmosphere. Unfortunately, I think Gettis is done in Carolina due to the injury plague, just been out too long.

His second chance will likely arrive in the preseason. Hopefully he'll make the most of it.

I think the weapons Cam has this coming year are underrated. Olsen is solid. LaFell was pretty decent last year and I see that only getting better. Add Hixon, and potentially Ginn.. And theres that 1 guy called Smith?

I think.. hope we'll use the run a lot more this year and get back to being as effective as we were a couple years back. We have a beasty offence..

Not saying I wouldn't love a WR in 1st (lemme get TAVON!!) but I wouldn't be pissed if we solidify our D. We rack up the points as it is, we just let too many points in the other way lol.
