we have our slot receiver already, and he's the steve smith archetype... because he's steve smith.

True we have Steve Smith this year. What about 5 years from now?

getting a big ass tall ass flanker will let steve excel in the slot and play for a few more years. when he retires, then fine, go after a brandin cooks.

 

right now we don't need him.

If he produces, who tf cares?

As someone else has said on this thread we have our slot guy so no thanks to him however talented he may be, we need a legit #1 receiver so why would we take a number #2 at best? It makes no sense going forward.

You know, I like this kid a lot and have tried to get away from this type of thinking...  Unfortunately, I cant.  Agree with  this 100% but wish him well.

If he is available, and the BPA, why not take him, and let the "Steve Smith type player" learn under Steve Smith?

 

Then take a bigger receiver later in the draft, or pick up one of the bigger free agent receivers? Steve Smith is only going to be around for 2 or 3 more years. 

 

I would not be mad if that happened. 

 

But if he is not the BPA at a position of need (tackle or corner for example) then pass on him.

To be fair we really have no idea who may or may not be a true #1 or #2 receiver right now. We are sitting at the 28th slot in the draft. The top receivers that have the greatest chance to be a true #1 will be long gone. If we do go receiver at 28, no matter who it is, that player will have flaws and will likely not emerge as a #1 this season and may never will.

If I'm seeing Kelvin Benjamin fall to #28 and it's him or Cooks them I'm going the big guy he can be groomed to be a legit #1 the big guy we need, I can't see Cooks being anything but a slot guy, argument could be Steve Steve made a career as a #1 when most would use him as a #2 but look around the league a big guy is the way forward now, a big tall dependable target downfield and looking at cams skillset it's the kind of guy he needs and this franchise has needed since god knows when.

BPA in fitting with our needs. If they deem that Brandin Cooks, I'm good with it regardless (but I always defer to the pros regarding the draft anyway).

 

As for us needing a big WR: Again, there will more than likely be Bradon Coleman, Martavis Bryant, Devin Street, and Cody Latimer available in later rounds.  Moreover, I don't agree with the notion that the 28th pick at WR will have any more flaws than anyone else necessarily. Keenan Allen ruled them all last year, and he was taken in the third round.  T.Y. Hilton, the previous year, was a third rounder as well.  They aren't the only ones.
