Why draft a receiver to be your number two? Isn't it true that you want to draft players that would have a possibility to be the number one? This draft is too deep to settle on someonne who can be a number two at best. It's just another Lafell situation.


Pretty much why I say we either get one at 28, or we don't get one at all. We have a logjam of WR we want to take a look at. Adding a second WR through the draft to not start is just a plain silly way to waste a draft pick in a draft class as deep as this one.

Maybe a WR at 60 could make a splash? But I don't want to take that chance. Get my guy early, and go Oline and skill players the rest of the way. So best LT left is my pick.

Best WR at 28 makes our corp., well, potentially pretty good to start, with rapid improvement on the horizon.

Best LT at 60 gets our Oline back up to avg.. With a chance of improvement on the horizon.

Throw the Defense a bone with a CB somewhere along the way. But stay with Oline, and, skill players, and CB is just as possible as anything this year.

Hellz. I quit. You just have to take my word for it.

I expect Gman to get us 2 starters, and 2 others that earn a rotational role. My hope is that 1 of those starters is at LT, that would mean our line has a chance. If 1 of those other 3 is a WR, that could mean our WR corp. now officially does not suck.

We are close. With the talent the draft will provide, we should be even closer. Where that leaves us? .....Don't ask me? I don't know.

I wouldn't hate Landry or Odell Beckham.

Good to see, though nothing surprising. Gotta do your due diligence.

Nicks didn't want to be 'the guy' here. Why would we need another player with a LaFell-esque mentality?

 

That's speculation. I'm not even sure what our level of interest truly was.

 

What did we offer him? I don't expect a guy to take a minimal offer and be handed the responsibility of being the guy. Its not like playing with Luck is a bad alternative. They are set to win that division again.

 

I just get the feeling this time next year we might be feeling we missed out again at WR. I hope not, I hope we hit WR in the draft big time. I hope the guys we did sign step up.

I think Beckham or Cooks would be a perfect fit.

I wouldn't touch Landry until the 3rd.

 

Exactly how I feel.

I would not be surprise if he has a similar season as Kennan Allen.

 

Insane the amount of Landry boners around here.  Huge difference since Kennan Allen put up similar to Landry(bad) combine numbers when he was running hurt and Landry was healthy.  Also comparing Kenan Allen's college production, where he was all Cal had, to Landry who had OBJ on the other side of him taking away the #1 corner and possible double coverage, a decent run game, and doing most of his work out of the slot, it's just not comparable. 

 

Landry's ceiling is Jason Avant, who we already have.  I would not be mad if we took OBJ in the first, a tackle in the 2nd, and Landry in the third, just to have a cool story since they've played together since HS.  However, he is not worth more then a 3rd, he won't succeed on the outside in the NFL.

Landry will end up being a top 3 receiver in this class. His route running and hands will make him a lot of money. People who judge him off his combine numbers (where he had a hammy problem) are ignorant to watch his game tape. He's a fantastic blocker, route runner, and probably has the best hands out of everyone in the draft. Bank on it
