    WR corps as it stands now...

    Enough Talk about Suh/Bradford ( personally I would go BPA and Suh is it plus I think Bradford will be Avg in the NFL but thats just my opinion) let's discuss stuff about players on the team


    Do you guys think we will just stay pat with the receivers we have now already and give the players one more year to pan out. Because Robinson showed flashes last year and Gibson is still really young. Not to mention if Avery could ever stay healthy he could be a solid #2 receiver.

    Thoughts?

    I would give them another year. It's not that I LOVE the current group... I just don't think adding another mid round receiver pick into the mix is going to help.

    They have more potential than a lot of players in other positions of need.

    it would depend on who falls, but i agree that between robinson, gibson, avery, burton, amendola we have some talent that could get the job done this year.

    we have plenty of #2's, but this is not the year to draft your #1. Let's get our QB, #1 TE and front 7 and OL depth this year and worry about the #1 WR next year.

    I completely agree, we can totally spend a first one pick on a wideout next year. We can never fill all the holes in one year, as long as we have a plan we'll be ok.

    A #1 TE would be a bigger asset to our WRs than anything. We need a big body in the middle of the field capable of drawing some attention and creating some mismatches. I honestly thought that Randy McMichael would be a star last season.

    Re: WR corps as it stands now...

    whilst i dont go along with the presumption that we cant get a number 1 wideout outside of the first round...the odds are obviously slimmer and although theres a few out there with some good potential projected to go in the mid rounds..i doubt if we`ll draft one after the 2nd round if atall..we already got plenty of potential at the position compared to other positions like TE,OLB & DE..i`d rate TE as a far greater need than WR on our offense.
    our Wideouts showed flashes of great play at times last year..i`d like to see what they could do with an upgrade at the QB position and hopefully a healthy season for the entire corps.
    we have no idea what Foster could bring at this point..so like King was last year we looking at essentially a rookie we`ve got on board before the draft.

    Re: WR corps as it stands now...

    My gut tells me that TE is of greater need right now than WR. We've got nobody to draw a body in coverage in the middle, so DB's can afford to focus on our wideouts. As young as we are at WR, I feel that an opportunity to standout is warranted. This is one draft, people. We can't address everything.

    Re: WR corps as it stands now...

    yeah, that's a good point, mcmichael was open all day last year but he couldn't catch a toilet paper roll. i like robinson as a borderline #1, gibson as a solid #2, and avery out of the slot. if we can add a true red-zone threat type tight end (and these guys stay healthy of course) i like what we can do in the passing game with a new qb and improved o-line, not to mention sjax in the backfield.

    A WR needs to be drafted.

    Re: WR corps as it stands now...

    I think drafting a WR means we cut a player we drafted recently. How many do we keep on 53 man roster. 5 0r 6? Laurant Robinson, Avery, gibson, amendolla, foster. I like Burton, but he may be out if we draft a wr, or we cut a draft pick before the season.

    Re: WR corps as it stands now...

    I personally like the potential right now of our receivers and think we need a solid pass-catching TE. I have my eye on Dorin Dickerson out of PItt who causes match-up problems because of his speed for a TE although his size is a bit small.

    Another mid-round selection which we might choose to select is Jordan Shipley out of Texas. He's a Ricky Proehl type possession receiver who doesn't drop passes and can also return KO's. Also seems like a good route-runner.

    We have plenty of needs and this is not as much a priority as QB, linemen and an OLB.

    Go Rams!

    But we do not need anymore possession type receivers on this ballclub. Danny boy is a capable 3rd down specialist and Gibson, Robinson, and Burton have all showed potential to be playmakers. What the key is for me is the type of player Avery becomes in his 3rd and crucial season. Coming off his rookie year we all had high expectations for him. Last year he did put up numbers but was hurt too much. I still think Avery has the potential to be an 70+ catch, 1,100+ 7+td type of playmaker.

    Re: WR corps as it stands now...

    Well stated everyone, well of course except Benjamin100.

    Why should we draft a mid round receiver to develop when we are already developing five guys?

    I can understand the frustration with our receiving corps, because on the outside looking in people don't recognize these names. They don't know that Danny Amendola led all rookies in all purpose yards, or that Robinson was really showing play-making abilities before he got hurt, or that Donnie is a deep threat everytime he steps on the field (provided his QB had enough time or arm strength to not under throw him). Some people don't understand Gibson led all rookie wideouts in receiving yards in the last four or so weeks of the season, or realize that Burton could be a stud if he just stayed healthy.

    We don't have any big names sure, but we have no need to add other small names through the later rounds of the draft.

    If either TE Aaron Hernandez or Rob Grankowski drop to rd 3, that's who they need to take. That would be huge.

    Bradford
    OLB Washington / RB Best
    TE Hernandez / TE Grankowski
