    If a big WR is wanted, we should wait for 2011 Draft

    If we do indeed draft Bradford, he's going to need fast, tall, consistent, explosive, or playmaking receivers. Or all of them.

    We have a fast receiver in Donnie Avery.

    We have a consistent receiver in Laurent Robinson and Keenan Burton.

    We have an explosive receiver in Brandon Gibson.

    We have a playmaking receiver in Danny Amendola.


    What we're lacking is a big, tall receiver. A Randy Moss-Andre Johnson type of mold.

    And I believe if we want one, we should wait till the 2011 draft.



    For the 2010 Draft, we should grab a solid tight end for Bradford. A consistent, able to catch in traffic, big redzone target for him. Gresham is a possibility.


    But, I don't really find any tall standout WRs in this draft. There is Demaryius Thomas, and Danario Alexander. That's it.




    For the 2011 Draft, here's some WRs we should look at:

    *Note that the projected rounds aren't accurate because it doesn't count for their production next seasno.


    A.J Green [6'4, 190lbs.] Georgia *Top 5 pick

    Julio Jones [6'4, 210lbs.] Alabama *Top 7 pick

    Michael Floyd
    [6'3, 220lbs.] Notre Dame *Top 7 pick

    Jonathan Baldwin
    [6'5, 225lbs.] Pittsburgh *Top 15 pick

    Devier Posey
    [6'3, 205lbs.] Ohio State *Round 2 pick

    Terrance Toliver
    [6'5, 210lbs.] LSU *Round 2-3 pick

    Chris Owusu
    [6'2, 200lbs.] Stanford *Round 2-3 pick

    Derrell Johnson-Koulianos
    [6'1, 205lbs.] Iowa *Round 2-3 pick

    Greg Little
    [6'3, 215lbs.] North Carolina *Round 3-4 pick

    Ronald Johnson
    [6'1, 185lbs.] USC *Round 3-4 pick

    Austin Pettis [6'3, 200lbs.] Boise State *Round 3-4 pick

    Ryan Whalen
    [6'2, 205lbs.] Stanford *Round 3-4 pick

    Armon Binns
    [6'4, 200lbs.] Cincinnati *Round 4-5 pick

    DeAndre Brown
    [6'6, 230lbs.] Southern Miss. *Round 4-5 pick

    Leonard Hankerson [6'3, 215lbs.] Miami *Round 4-5 pick





    In the first 5 rounds, there are 15 big/tall receivers to be projected to be drafted. That is a huge number.



    If we are picking in the top ten next year, I would desperately hope one of the Triumvirate drops to us.

    If we are picking in the middle, Jonathan Baldwin is an amazing choice. He is underrated.


    The rest are solid, middle round picks.

    Well I'm biased, and I would be interested to see what he runs in the 40, but Austin Pettis is a beast, if he runs anywhere near 4.4-4.5 I don't see any weakness in his game, if so, I think he is at minimum a 2nd rounder.

    Yeah, he's a big, tough guy. Reminds me of a more physical version of Larry Fitzgerald/Anquan Boldin.
