WR class will not turn out to be deep, in my opinion. Better get one early.

 

Many times the OLmen are rated high until they are measured at the combine and have 32" arms.  Remember last year?  About 3 or 4 top tackles actually had 32" arms (in that area) and it caused them to drop.

 

As for WR, I thought last year's group sucked.  The combine usually boosts the stock of some faster WRs unjustly.  Tavon Austin, Stephen Hill, Cordarrellle Patterson, etc.  I am tired of WRs that drop too many passes.  

 

I think we add a WR, but it will be later.  The team likes Lafell (more than I do, but we don't appreciate WR blocking like the coaches do). I think we re-sign Ted Ginn.  I also think they will attempt to develop King and or McNutt.

It boils down to who is better when we reach our pick.   OT or WR.   Our hopes are we make the playoffs.  Making the playoffs means we are 23 through 32.

 

So most of the can't miss players are gone.   It will be Gettleman and his staff to draft without error.  Last year was pretty solid considering we were without our #3 pick.

 

I am happy our two most important need areas are strengths in this draft.

 

The biggest thing IMO is accuracy.  Making sure every pick is solid enough to make the team or practice squad (if 6th or 7th round pick)

I honestly wouldn't mind another double-down next draft, this time on WR.

 

I would throw my remote through the tv screen if we used both our 1st and second rounder on a WR. 

 

We need some OL help and in a bad way.

Yeah, if we double down on anything, it should be OL.

Wow, that's right up our alley.

We're probably going to be very happy around April

so...I guess people will be ticked when we draft a DL, LB?

 

Many times the OLmen are rated high until they are measured at the combine and have 32" arms.  Remember last year?  About 3 or 4 top tackles actually had 32" arms (in that area) and it caused them to drop.

 

As for WR, I thought last year's group sucked.  The combine usually boosts the stock of some faster WRs unjustly.  Tavon Austin, Stephen Hill, Cordarrellle Patterson, etc.  I am tired of WRs that drop too many passes.

We can't continue to neglect our OL AND WRs....

 

Next year Smith will continue his decline and be worse.

 

Out of the top 8 rookie WRs drafted last year.....

3 have more yards than any WR on our roster presently.  

2 our within 30 yards of 89.  

2 had their starting QB injured early in the season

1 is Tavon

 

We only need to draft O.  WRs, T, Gs.   pick up a vet CB

I think Gettleman values the trenches too much to let Hardy walk.

NY model he learned from says....draft DEs.  Why NY fans bitched and moaned when they ignored holes and drafted at spots already filled.  If Hardy wants CJ money....that is likely an issue

I know I sound like a broken record, but we need a WR bad. I watch other qbs play on Sunday and one thing I notice is a lot of times they just throw the ball up there and the WR comes down with some spectacular catch in double and triple coverage.

None of our WRs have spectacular catch the ball in traffic ability. If they aren't wide open and Cam puts the ball up there for them it's getting picked. Cam's biggest problem is that he has to be perfect to compensate for the lack of talent at the position. Even then they are known for dropping some good balls.

The only pick outside of WR I would even consider is OL. Even then I wouldn't be happy with it only because it just means we've wasted picks on Kug and Amini. If you drafted them and thought they could play then develop them and let them do their job.

The fact that Ted Ginn a guy that couldn't get of San Frans bench has come in and outplayed Lafell should tell you how weak the position is.
