im just not sure either of them will last till our picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds
The thing is, this draft is so deep, you can just take a guy like Jordan Matthews or wait until the 3rd to start with receivers and go after Paul Richardson or a guy like Robert Herron, who I think could be really good.
Landry's stock has been skyrocketing lately. ive seen mocks with teams taking him in the 1st recently. i think he is a mid/late second round talent. and i do hope we draft him. i like the combo of Davante Adams and Landry
You cetainly get talented players who can catch the ball if you go that way. I'd try to wait on Jarvis Landry until the 3rd at least, because the draft is so deep. I think I'd try to get Adams in the 2nd.
Stills only had a 33 1/2 vertical (bottom of barrel for NFL WR), Richardson had a 38 (top of barrel for NFL WR)
also, Stills is #4 in receiving yards of all WRs taken in last year's draft, so he was likely worth at least a 2nd or 3rd round pick (before the draft, he was given a third-round grade from the NFL advisory committee)
Stills in 2013 - 641 yds, 5 TD on 708 snaps (played 61.3% of Saints offensive snaps) and #1 in NFL with 20.0 yards/catch...he did so well the Saints let go of Lance Moore (now a Steeler). Last month, NFL.com's Gil Brandt wrote a piece profiling ten 2nd-year players due for break-out seasons. He had Stills on it and wrote: "Projection for 2014: 70 catches, 1,050 yards, eight touchdowns."
compare how Stills did to the other WRs taken in last year's draft:
saying Paul Richardson does not run the entire route tree is just not true. now he does get beat up by more physical CBs at times, but he has also competed with the best in the PAC-12. had a decent game vs Oregon, and they had 2 very good CBs.
You are right.
Who are the college receivers running the full route tree? They all run what their offense requires and it's usually just a handfull of routes, many of which have no stem.
It's a bogus complaint.
The questions is, is he capable of running the full route tree or enough routes to maximize his skill set?
everyone sees how much of a joke this question is, right?
Exactly. The answer was lacking too. This article I posted earllier has it right. This is the year to turn the page at WR. I'll mis Steve as much as anybody else, but it was time. He's too intense to fade away as a Panther.
It may stink to have massive turnover, but this is absolutely the time to do it, and, let's face it, we were well below average at WR anyway. There's every chance we'll end up better.
