If we Draft a WR, who do you want?

This years class seems to have lots of potential at WR and all the free agent WR that can be #1s other than Vjax got tagged. So let's assume we still have a 2nd by the time draft rolls around and we pick a wr.

Also, Let's assume that Floyd and Blackmon are off the board. I think all the others have a possibility to slip to the second around at least after Wright's 40 time.

Hill: Impressive combine, biggest concern is the learning curve.

Streeter: Hankerson's old teammate. One breakout year.

Jeffery: Looked at one point to be a certain first rounder but concerns about weight, speed, and work ethic.

Sanu: One breakout year, not at elite athlete.

Randle: Disappeared in games against good DB's but good size and speed.

Wright: RG3's big play guy but ran awful 40 for someone considered a deep ball Djax type.

Others: Toon, Criner, Jones, Quick, etc..

Dwight Jones, but I think his stock might have slipped during the Senior Bowl, to where we can get him in the 3rd round possibly. I really have a good feeling on Dwight Jones, seems like a slightly more athletic Anquan Boldin type. I hope the skins nab him in the 3rd round. I think he could make an instant impact.

He put up excellent numbers at UNC with subpar QB play that was more oriented to the run than it ever was to the pass. I think he is this years under the radar guy that could blow up into an All Pro in 1 or 2 years possibly.

I think Wright will be gone (if not, give me him), but after that, I want Marvin Jones in a tight call over Reuben Randle and Joe Adams.

How about Chris Owusu from Stanford? He had a really nice combine, and has good size.

I wouldn't touch Alshon Jeffrey. These guys who come in with work ethic issues seem to never pan out.

Randle or Jones. Both possibly could be had in the 3rd. When Randle was recruited he was called the next AJ Green. Having Jordan Jefferson as a QB hurt him a lot. Could be a sleeper.

Yeah I saw that- he had 3 in college. He's like the WR version of Jhavid Best.

Perhaps Kendall Wright will run a much faster 40 at his pro day. His combine time just seems odd. He seems to play so much faster.

True, I remember Gary Clark wasn't that fast either, yet he was arguably our best deep threat receiver ever. I believe Wright will fall to the second round. I really like Tommy Streeter though. Can't go wrong with a big WR from the U.

re: If we Draft a WR, who do you want?

I like Kendall Wright. I thought Alshon Jeffery would be worth it earlier but questions about his work ethic and his combine prep have really scared me off. If he can't be convinced to work hard to show off his skills in front of the NFL at the Combine how can he be convinced to work hard to be one of the best wideouts in the league?

Stephen Hill is 6'4 215 and ran a 4.36 40, tied for 1st in the broad jump, and had the 5th highest vertical at the combine. He also had probably the single best diving catch at the combine. Acompany all those measurables with his 28 ypr in college and this guy has everything us skins fans want in a #1 WR!
1. Big, physical, jump ball redzone target
2. Speed, create seperation at the line, take the top off of defense
3. Demand double teams while forcing one on ones for our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th guys.

He's a workout warrior for sure. My concern with him is lack of experience since all GT does is run the ball. On the pro level, that translates to the question of how quickly he can contribute. That said, someone may reach a bit (Patriots?) and snag him late 1st....

Alshon Jeffrey is a fatty. He did a good job of losing weight to pass the eye test at the combine, but there's a reason he found an excuse not to run.

I would go with Stephen Hill from what i understand we where talking to him prior to the combine, so interest must of been there already IMO.

second off, he has so few catches and game film. Is he a workout warrior or a football player that didn't get thrown to cause of a crappy offensive system or both?
No way is any team going to be dumb enough to go darius hayward bay/Craig Davis/Instert another name on this guy. He's clearly not good enough to be picked in the top 2/3 of the draft and nobody picking in the bottom 1/3 is dumb enough to waste a pick like that.
