Now that we have released Marty Booker I think there is a good chance we will be looking for one in the up-coming draft. I think since we already have a speed reciever in Ginn we will be looking for more of possesion reciever either in the 2nd or 3rd round. Or maybe in the mid- to late 1st round if we do end up trading our 1st overall.

WRs I think we would be looking at would be:
Malcolm Kelly, Oklahoma
Limas Sweed, Texas
James Hardy, Indiana
Early Doucet, LSU
Devin Thomas, Michigan State

Personally I would love to get any one of those recievers... whats your thoughs?

Hopefully we trade for Chad Johnson.

If that doesn't happen, I say James Hardy at #32. He's huge, great hands, and he's a touchdown machine. I can't think of a better compliment to Ted Ginn.

James Hardy early, Marcus Monk late. We could use a big WR target.

James hardy at 32 would be a reach, I think we can get hardy in the 3rd round

No way he lasts to the 3rd IMO. He may be there at 32, but not 63. His red flags would have to be pretty damning, and his 40 would have to be well over 4.65 to drop to the 3rd IMO.

I'd love to see Limas Sweed drop to us at #33...

That's just wishful thinking, but I can hope! :up:

Yeah it would be a big gamble, but typically WR seem to fall in drafts

last year Dwayne Jarrett was projected as a 1st rounder and he fell to the mid 2nd round

year before that Chad Jackson WR from Florida was porjected as a 1st rounder and he fell to NE in the 2nd round.

I have a feeling Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will fall to the 2nd round, if hes available at the 32 pick, we have to pick him over James Hardy. and our 2nd pick from San diego we have to pick a OT or OG (that is if we dont pick Jake Long)

James Hardy early, Marcus Monk late. We could use a big WR target.

I second that

Very clutch WR with great hands thats not afraid to go over the middle. Perfect fit.

i know he was hurt for half the season, but the games i did see he seemed like a sure hand WR. I wouldn't mind the pick if we could grab him in the 3rd however i don't know where he projects

Sweed
Hardy
or
Kelly

i dont want another WR under 6ft. we need that big posession guy to go get the ball in the air

I REALLY want James Hardy, but that one incident is likely to cross him off of Parcells list. I hope t doesn't though. The guy can flat out play, plus he is 6'7" and is a great target for the red zone. We desperately need someone we can throw fade routes to.

Yeah! I have a feeling that guy is going to make a really good slot type of receiver.

Keenan Burton of Kentucky and Adrian Arrington of Michigan r two guys u should keep your eye on...maybe 3rd rounder for Burton and maybe 4th to 5th rd for Arrington

james Hardy will be the best WR to come out of this draft i guarantee it.. ive watched his clips.. hes big physical and not to slow and is good at using his hands

I think that if we dont get a WR in FA then we should draft Harry Douglas

I think we are going to grab a reciever or two in free agency and draft one in a late round of the draft. Typically recievers take 2-3 years to actually make an impact for a team and we have many needs right now. We will probably use our early picks on O-line and D-line because it is proven that they can have an immediate impact and both of those are positions that we need help at right away.

if you havent figured out by now... i am a big Jordy Nelson, later round pick-up fan!!!!

I think getting Marcus Monk sometime on day 2 would be a great pickup as a possession WR. Before his ACL injury at the beginning of his senior year he was considered to be a solid 2-3rd round pick. I watched him at Arkansas throughout his career and he was the #1 target all 4 years of his college career. Of course AR didn't have much of a passing game, but he looked good against the top DB's that the SEC produced for the past 4 years.

I watched some film of him and here is my evaluation. He has amazing hands and can run decent routes. The problem is that he is not nearly as shifty as Wes Welker (who is anyway?), but he also doesn't have good speed. His lack of speed will hurt his draft stock pretty bad. With that being said he could probably survive in the NFL as a 3rd or 4th WR.

Please I don't need anyone reminding me about how Jerry Rice ran a 4.65 and Boldin was slow, as well. I know all of this already.

Adarius Bowman. Get ready.

Urrutia > Douglas

Can't forget about Andre "Bubba" Caldwell, either.

Arrington would be great. But he has "off-the-field" issues. If Parcells and Ireland stay true to their "good character" rule then we won't draft Arrington. Unfortunately or not unfortunately depending on how you look at it.

The guy we should draft is Lavelle Hawkins from California in the 3rd round. He's just a shade under 6 feet. Almost 190 pounds. And he runs in the 4.4 range. Not super big, but not small either. And he's fast. Plus he's a playmaker. Overshadowed by DeSean Jackson in college. On any other team, Hawkins would be the man. But I suspect Parcells and Ireland are looking for a bigger WR, so we probably won't draft Hawkins. Unfortunately.

Last year, the guy I really thought we should have taken was James Jones, but I knew Mueller would pass because Jones isn't a speedster. That doesn't seem to be hurting him at Green Bay, though.

The most likely candidate to replace Booker is Jason Rivers from Hawaii in the 6th round.


Other candidates:

ROUND 2 - Earley Doucet from LSU 6-0 211 4.54
ROUND 2 - Limas Sweed from Texas 6-4 212 4.58
ROUND 2 - Devin Thomas from Michigan St 6-2 215 4.50

ROUND 3 - Earl Bennett from Vanderbilt 6-1 205 4.52
ROUND 4 - D.J. Hall from Alabama 6-2 190 4.49
ROUND 4 - Adarius Bowman from Oklahoma St 6-3 220 4.53
ROUND 4 - Jordy Nelson from Kansas St 6-3 215 4.57

ROUND 6 - Darius Reynaud from WVU 5-10 205 4.47
ROUND 7 - Marcus Smith from New Mexico 6-1 214 4.52
ROUND 7 - Marcus Monk from Arkansas 6-6 218 4.59
ROUND 7 - Steve Johnson from Kentucky 6-2 200 4.49
ROUND 7 - Mario Urrutia from Louisville 6-6 225 4.64
ROUND 7 - Justin Harper from Virginia Tech 6-4 198 4.43

I'm hoping Harper goes undrafted actually. Then we could pick him up as an UDFA.

If Rogers-Cromartie is still around at the #32 spot I would take him over any receiver, if not, I think we should go after WR James Hardy, or TE, Fred Davis, of USC.

I posted this in another thread,but it has soem relavance here. When Dan Henning was in Carolina his offenses favored the WR's over TE's and backs. I won't go into all the numbers but just look at this:

2002:Muhsin Muhammed 63rec, 823yds 3TD's
Steve Smith 54rec, 872yds 3TD's
Kris Mangum 16rec, 159yds 0TD's (TE, Jermaine Wiggins had 8 rec)

2003:Muhsin Muhammed 54rec, 837yds 3TD's
Steve Smith 88rec, 1110yds 7TD's
Kris Mangum 17rec, 199yds 0TD's (Wiggins 8 rec)

2004 Steve Smith gets hurt, Muhammed gets 16 TD's and Colbert steps up. Mangum records the high for TE receptions that year with 34, the same number David Martin had last year.

2005 Smith blows up Proehl plays well. Mangum retreats to 23 rec.

Also Henning had a tall receiver in Muhammed 6'2" 215lbs. And I believe he had Keyshawn in NY when was with Parcells aswell. Chance are we are gonna get one probably early like the 2nd round. Maybe 3rd. Just thought I'd throw this into the mix.

I love Adarius Bowman but lately it seems like he has had the case of the dropsies and thats never good. I think he can be a good reciever in this league, you gotta remember last year he showed up big time vs Aqib Talib, whos a good corner. He posted 12 receptions for 330 yards i believe in ONE game. also, to go along with those receptions and yards, he had four touchdowns.

Harry Douglas will be no more then a #3 IMO.

I love Early Doucet. He is a good possesion receiver but he cant seem to stay healthy and that worries me. I believe he missed six games this past year. If we can get him, I would be happy.
