Promethean Forerunner

Sammy Watkins, 2014.

60 posts in this topic

Lee is a prototype WR who would be so good that most huddlers would waive the " USC skill player curse draft adversion" that has been recently been in effect.

Watkins reminds me a bit of Tedd Ginn in college..an ultra fast, tall WR that will make plays.

Lee reminds me of a faster AJ Green.

Well keep in mind if we draft him its because we have a high pick. I'd rather draft last :)

unless someone on our roster jumps the fug up into WR1 contention this year there is no question we'll be forced to draft a first-rounder next season.

Well only if we keep Gross and Kalil comes back healthy and we are fine with Bell

I want you guys to remember wanting a WR so when we don't draft one next year....again. You won't give me poo for criticizing it.

How many times does a player have a great sophomore or junior campaign only to fall back their senior year for whatever reason.  At least as many times as those who kill it their senior year and their stock climbs.  No one can predict where guys are going to go next April a year ahead.  I remember when Barkeley was touted as a first rounder and look where he  was drafted in the 4th round. What about our own  Hardy who was  projected as potential first rounder and was there for us in the 6th.  And these guys had no off field issues.  I know it  is dead as far as football news in May and most of June but making these kind of projections for 2014 already is ridiculous.

Part of the criticism is that there were no number 1 receivers in this draft like Julio Jones or AJ Greene.  You can't draft what isn't there.  And you shouldn't when you can get a starter like Star and a future starter like Short.  Any receiver we picked this year would likely be the 4th or 5th best receiver on the team  behind Smith, LaFell and Hixon.

I doubt he would be there at 32 so we probably won't consider him.

should you expect to draft a WR like julio or green at 14 or expect one of that caliber to be there? should you not draft one at that point unless they are of that caliber?

seems like awfully unrealistic expectations.

Kill it before it lays eggs. No thanks to Sammy Potkins.

Best WR in the draft IMO... Hoping we are in a position to take him next year.  He would be a perfect WR for Smitty to pass the torch to, but I won't hold my breath.  With my projections on where the Panthers will finish and be drafting vs. where he will be selected (too soon for projections?), we won't have much of a shot without trading up.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
