Interested in a bump to see if any minds have changed or what people are thinking as the combine approaches.  

 

I'm still leaning towards Beckham but Robinson and Adams are close running in my book.

Might be a lot of hurt fans just like last year when we don't pick up a receiver in the first.  Unless a top 10 guy really falls, Gettleman said in a recent article that it is hard to find a receiver who can contribute right away.  He said a few guys this past year did but they are actually in the minority if you look at everyone who gets drafted in the first 2 rounds over the past several years.  If we are looking for a starter who can replace Smitty this year, it won't b a draft pick.  If we are looking for a starter who can replace Smitty in 2 or 3 years then that player might be find anywhere in the first 4 rounds not necessarily in the first or second.  Given that it is easier to find a lineman or even a corner who can come in and start like White last year, I really think that Gettleman won't be looking for a WR in the first.  I suspect he will pick up a guy or two in free agency.  As he said, you don't draft for need.  The best way to do it to find need players in FA so you are able to pick up the BPA regardless of need. That is exactly what we did with Luke when we thought our linebackers were set with Beason coming back.  We all saw how that worked out.

He has been qouted in interviews about helping cam and the offense adding weapons.

He has already said that you don't find your needs in the draft or you end up reaching. You find your needs in free agency and draft BPA regardless of position. He will add weapons he just won't wait until the draft to start.  What weapons we add depends on who ends up being available.

Again that is all based on need within reason. Not  We have huge holes on offense and this is the best wr class in recent memory and  a strong tackle class so get a safety. NO ONE drafts pure BPA . Because no one can afford to really do that(maybe the 49ers?). Look at how we drafted in the past,cam mcclain and fua were not bpa but within reasonable need.

What? No Kevin Benjamin? Oh, because you presume he'll be gone.

 

 

It depends on the draft actually, and how it all shakes out.  I got my eyes on Brandon Coleman and Martavis Bryant in the mid rounds though. Really warming up to Cooks, though,

I like Bryant a lot. He is the one player I want to see on the panthers next year.

Yep, sorta.  He could very well be there but with how much Lee, Benjamin, Evans, and Watkins are discussed, I was interested in seeing the favorite amongst the rest.

Neither Fua or McClain were drafted by Gettleman.  He told us what he was going to do and that was draft BPA by filling holes of need in free agency.  I am waiting to see. With no money for FA last year we drafted for need in the first and second.  This time around I expect us to be bigger players in free agency,

I don't think Landry is far behind from Beckham though.  He actually matched better against Verrett this past season whereas JV put up a good fight against Beckham in the TCU-LSU game.  Beckham still played darn well though.  

The more I tape I see of Landry the more I think he would be the best as far as coming in and playing day 1 which is what we need with our cap situation. Great concentration and hands can't be taught. I especially like the catches on imperfect throws and that any sideline catches he got both feet down, Cam needs someone that can bail him out some times. Landry has some Chris Carter-esque hands.

another i guy i rank rather high is Donte Moncrief. i think he comes off the board some time in the 2nd. here is a blurb about him today

 

 

Scouts will closely monitor the output of Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief at the NFL's Scouting Combine.

"Ole Miss coaches raved about his freakish athleticism, but he had only a so-so junior season before deciding to turn pro," wrote NFL.com's Mike Huguenin. "He has intriguing size, and if he runs well in the 40 -- most expect a sub-4.4 time -- it will bode well for his draft status." The 6-foot-3, 226-pounder collected 59 catches for 938 yards and six touchdowns last season. He's more talented than his collegiate production suggests, the primary reason that evaluators are hoping for excellent test numbers

I don't like the idea of thinking there's a consensus top 4. Beckham and Robinson should get serious looks in the 1st round.
