Re: Positions Which Need to Be Addressed

Which WR are we gonna sign in the offseason?:

2012 NFL Free Agent Receivers

Reggie Wayne (IND) - The Colts are an organization that tends to take care of their own. Though they're in a precarious position after signing Manning long term and with Robert Mathis looking for his own deal, the Colts will have to make room. On the bright side, the new CBA couldn't have come at a better time for the Colts who would have been due to dole out a large sum for a potentially high draft pick.

Wes Welker (NE) - Through 5 games, Welker is on pace to break the season record for receptions and shatter the record for receiving yards. It's safe to say hes Brady's favorite target on 3rd downs to move the chains and virtually impossible to cover out of the slot due to his quickness, intelligence, and hands. You have to think Brady will make a push to keep him around if the front office shockingly has other plans.

Vincent Jackson (SD) - Partially due to his actions and injuries, the Chargers have been reluctant to sign Vincent Jackson to a long-term extension. If there's any animosity between the two parties, this could be the time where there's a split. Still, the best guess is that the team will pay Jackson like a number one receiver and keep him in San Diego.

DeSean Jackson (PHI) - Jackson is the perfect weapon for the Eagles offense that relies upon big plays. Though the organization was unwilling to cave to his offseason demands, they'll have to think long and hard about doing everything in their power to retain Jackson. Though Maclin may be the better overall receiver, Jackson's vertical ability has a great impact on the way defenses approach the Eagles' offense. Though based on his comments and actions of several months ago, it appears that Jackson could be lured away from Philadelphia with a lucrative offer.

Dwayne Bowe (KC) - One subpar season aside, Dwayne Bowe has emerged into the number one receiver the offense needs. He's a big body and a good route runner with a large catching radius. His most impressive attribute is his body of work around the goal line. He's a complete mismatch with the fade, slant, and back shoulder passes and has shown the propensity to make the acrobatic catches on numerous occasions.

Marques Colston (NO) - When healthy, Colston is a match-up nightmare for any corner. He's an incredibly physical receiver and a sure-handed, polished route runner. When he's available, he brings another dimension to the Saints offense that none of their other talented weapons possess. Though Brees has proven capable of running the offense without him, they're even more dangerous with him.

Steve Johnson (BUF) - Still working on his meager rookie salary, Johnson figures to be a big part of the Bills' long term plans. On a team with few superstars, the Bills can afford to lock up Johnson long term and maintain an effective passing attack. After he and fellow free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick are locked up, Bills fans can breathe easier about the bright future of their offense.

Brandon Lloyd (STL) - Lloyd's next contract will largely depend upon his production over the remainder of the season. Though he hasn't been as explosive and consistent as a year ago when he broke out at age 29, he still appears to be a dangerous receiver with the league's largest catching radius.

Robert Meachem (NO) - Meachem is one of the younger receivers that could be a nice pick-up for an offense with a larger workload to offer. He's a good downfield threat and has nice instincts in the red zone. Unlike Colston, Meachem is more of a luxury for the offense.

Mario Manningham (NYG) - With Manningham and Cruz behind Hakeem Nicks, the Giants have found a nice threesome. They seemed disappointed in Steve Smith's decision to bolt for Philadelphia without the option to match the contact, so there's no question the front office will look to keep the remainder of their receiving corps intact.

Mike Wallace (PIT) - Restricted - No receiver in the league forces safeties back like Wallace. His deep speed is second to none on the perimeter and he capitalizes on it with the ability to run those vertical routes proficiently. He's improving in other areas of his game and is an extremely valuable piece to the Steelers' offense.



The Rest: Early Doucet (ARZ)
Harry Douglas (ATL)
Eric Weems (ATL)
Roscoe Parrish (BUF)
Legedu Naanee (CAR)
Earl Bennett (CHI)
Roy Williams (CHI)
Andre Caldwell (CIN)
Jerome Simpson (CIN)
Eddie Royal (DEN)
Rashied Davis (DET)
Maurice Stovall (DET)
Bryant Johnson (HOU)
Pierre Garcon (IND)
Anthony Gonzalez (IND)
Jerheme Urban (KC)
Devin Aromashodu (MIN)
Bernard Berrian (MIN)
Greg Camarillo (MIN)
Deion Branch (NE)
Matt Slater (NE)

Re: Positions Which Need to Be Addressed

I've been saying for years that the O-line has been neglected here. The Niners would be a good model for building a sustainable running game around either a young or mediocre QB. They spent not one, but two 1st round picks on O linemen in the 2010 draft. In 2008 they drafted a G in the 2nd round. In 2007, they drafted left tackle Joe Staley in the 1st round. We have drafted ONE O-lineman in the top two rounds of the last ELEVEN drafts. I will concede that the 2012 1st round pick almost has to be a QB, but I want to see more than one high OL draft selection a decade.

Yeah, I think our oline is better but still average. Its missing something, I wouldnt mind adding another solid interior linemen in FA or high draft pick...I think we should look at drafting depth a Tackle in 4th, 5th round...trying to find some talent to back up and challenge for the RT spot.

Re: Positions Which Need to Be Addressed

QB- Someone who is accurate and can throw deep. Mobility is probably a last point since Becks mobility is hardly being used.

OL- Need more youth and talent. I'd take more OT since everyone else is guard material.

FS- We need someone who can actually play the position from sideline to sideline.

CB- Someone who can shut down one side of the field.

WR- A playmaker. I'd take the best FA WR available no matter the cost and pick up another from the draft. Hopefully next year our WR's we already have will be developed.

The first thing is to figure if there is any OL that will grade that highly in THIS YEAR'S draft. Both Iupati and Davis were predicted in the mocks to be taken rather highly. Not to mention getting two 1st round picks is easier said than done.

Frank Gore is a damn good back as well. He was producing big well before the arrival of those fellows. Now, we DO have a back who might reach that level in Helu, but again, the OLprospect must be good enough to be taken with a 1st round pick first.

Can he catch out of the backfield. I think our attack next week should be Beck at shotgun with Helu on one side and either Paul or Hank on the other side, Davis at TE and Gaffney and Paul/Austin at WRs. Let the WRs run deep, Davis as a decoy and throw it to the shotgun RB or WR.

Re: Positions Which Need to Be Addressed

Our best player is always the next available guy. That's why Jonathan Crompton, Tashard Choice, and Aldrick Robinson shall lead us!

I've seen a few mock drafts where they have the Redskins drafting Matt Barkley of USC and Robert Griffin III of Baylor. Griffin III is definitely the better QB. They need a CB and possibly a veteran WR through free agency. And maybe one or two offensive lineman.
Barkley and Griffin III are long shots to come out in this draft. And apparently Landry Jones is going to stay one more year as well. The real class of QB's is likely to look like this.

1st Round
Luck - Stanford
Folles - Arizona

2nd Round
Tannenhill - A&M

3rd Round
Kirk Cousins - Michigan State
Brandon Weeden - Ok State
Kellen Moore


Compare that to last year.

1st Round
Newton
Locker
Gabert
Ponder

2nd Round
Dalton
Kapernick

3rd Round
Mallet

See what happens when you wait a year?!?!!

You need either a high draft pick or pay a lot of money in free agency in order to get this (unless you get very lucky with a low draft pick). At this point, I really want to use the majority of our resources in the offense, and I don't see a dire need to spend a lot of money on a shut down corner.

According to this, he sounds similar to what Hightower is now.

But according to this, he needed some more polish in pass catching.

But this individual praises his pass catching ability.

One thing is for sure though, the dude runs hard.

Redskins looking to add a depth WR today. Making some calls (no, not to TO or Randy Moss, as a preemptive answer). More like journeyman vets.

Re: Positions Which Need to Be Addressed

If you are waiting on a roster that has stars at every position IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Coaches put players in postions to succeed, it is easy to cry roster but we have players. We should be able to do something. We should be able to do what our players are capable of. On this board people do not like players like Crabtree, Braylon Edwards, QBs from spread offenses that run, or players from the U like Gore. Those players have talent we keep passing them up and then losing to them.
