Can we start talking more about WR's in the draft now?
I rank them like this:
I think there will be about six receivers off the board when we pick at 49. Hopefully we can take Robiske at #49, he is the son of the Atlanta Falcons WR's coach. He is very fundamentally sound and has a pretty good perspective on NFL life.
However, I think there is a decent chance that Hakeem Nicks slides to the 2nd round, and if that happens, I think we should trade up to grab him. I would be thrilled with that scenario, while he isn't the best receiver in the class he might be the one who can contribute immediately. Great routes and hands.
The only WR that I don't want is Percy Harvin, I think he is either a bust or a poor man's Devin Hester. We obviously don't need another bust, and we already have a Devin Hester. I'm pretty hopeful that if the Minnesota VikQueens are going to take a WR that they waste there first round pick on Percy Harvin... (Troy Williamson part 2)
Mel Kiper has us using the #49 on Massaquoi as the 8th WR taken in the draft.
Side note: I would love to sign Torry Holt, draft the best WR available, and tell Devin Hester to remember how to return kicks. I think Hester will never be as valuable at WR as he was as the best return man in history. I don't think this scenario will happen, but I wish it would. That said, if Devin is going to be our #1 WR, then let's have Garret Wolfe return kicks and focus only on that. I think we have seen that Devin can't do both.
