View Full Version : Why Hakeem Nicks?!?!

Why is everyone obsessed with Hakeem Nicks? I know he has good hands and he can run after the catch and blah blah

This reminds me the year everyone wanted Ted Ginn....OOPS!

I understand that we need some depth at the WR position but why do we have to draft a WR in the 1st round? Why not a Brian Robiskie or Louis Murphy in the 2nd round?

Nicks, to me is hardly a 1st rounder...hes only like 6' 0". Im not hating on Nicks, because if Miami did take a WR in the 1st round I would want Nicks, but I think we have other issues right now....such as a CB. I highly doubt that Eric Green is going to be our main guy for the years to come.

We need to either draft a CB or a OLB in the 1st round. Im leaning towards a OLB in the 1st just because Im not sure if a decent/"Parcells" type LB will be available in the 2nd round and plus we could find some good value in a CB in the 2nd round.

I just dont feel that Hakeem Nicks would be much of an impact, and we could draft a WR just as good if not better in the 2nd round. He may be a little bit overrated and to me he is not worthy of the 25th overall pick.

I also would like to add that our WR's we have now are young and they can only improve, although players like Joey Porter and Will Allen are slowly on the decline...keep that in mind.

I wasnt totally dissapointed in our WR's last year, I cant speak for everyone but I felt like they played pretty good for the little experience that they all have...they will only get better.

The reason I like Nicks is because he's one of the few guys that I can very clearly envision making a big impact at the pro level.

I know WR is hardly ever a sure thing...but with Nicks, I see it.

he is worth a 1st round pick..
I agree that WR isn't a first round need, but nicks isn't much more of a stretch than larry english, clay matthews, conner barwin, darius butler or sean smith..

i wish vontae, maula, cushing(ILB), jenkins or evertte brown would fall, but unless someone slips, i see nicks as a 20-35 type player, and hes rated right around 25 on most big boards.. It's not much of a reach, and i would prefer to trade back and pick up multiple better value positions..
I would love Robiskie in second round, wouldnt mind murphy with the 2b..
First round should be whatever Parcells likes, fans should be able to guess the second rounders easier cuz it's not as big of a deal as the first rounder... I love the late 1st-3rd round prospects and think we will really help out our team with those first 4 picks..
Doesnt matter what order, but we need CB, WR, LB, NT and depth.. As long as we getting potential starters I am happy.

If Nicks is available, it depends on who else is available, but he's worth the 25 pick, he's the solid possesion WR we need. I'd prefer more height, but i know he'd be good for us.

Why is everyone obsessed with Hakeem Nicks? I know he has good hands and he can run after the catch and blah blah

This reminds me the year everyone wanted Ted Ginn....OOPS!

Who wanted Ted Ginn where we picked him? Nobody wanted him at #9, it was a complete surprise when Cam Cameron tried to explain his pick at Dolphin Stadium. Did you even see the reponse from the fans when that pick was called? I like Ginn, but I would've never picked him in the first because I wanted Patrick Willis.


I understand that we need some depth at the WR position but why do we have to draft a WR in the 1st round? Why not a Brian Robiskie or Louis Murphy in the 2nd round?!

Ginn is nothing more than a deep threat, you can't trust him to go over the middle and make the tough catch. He will either slide before he gets hit or run out of bounds before contact.

Nicks is that the guy who does the dirty work. He will make the tough catch, and no one in the draft is better than him after the catch because he is strong enough to break tackles. Know I like Robiskie and Murphy but they do not compare to Nicks, if they could; they would be mentioned in the same breath.


Nicks, to me is hardly a 1st rounder...hes only like 6' 0". Im not hating on Nicks, because if Miami did take a WR in the 1st round I would want Nicks, but I think we have other issues right now....such as a CB. I highly doubt that Eric Green is going to be our main guy for the years to come.

I can understand how you feel here. I would love to grab Nicks with our 2a pick, but there are teams that will snatch him up before than. With St. Louis dropping Torry Holt a couple of days ago, I can see Nicks dropping no further than the Rams 2nd round pick. Nicks is 6' 1" which happens to be the same height as Michael Crabtree and one inch taller than Jermey Maclin. Height shouldn't matter but Nicks' production is far better than Robiske and Murphy, he had more yards than both of them combined.

I AGREE 100% about our CB concerns. I harbor the same feelings about the CBs like you have for Nicks. If the draft goes close to the average mock, the available CB at #25 is Darrius Butler, I like him but I'm not ready say he's first round worthy yet. Now if Vontae Davis or Malcolm Jenkins slid to us, I hope we grab him quick.


We need to either draft a CB or a OLB in the 1st round. Im leaning towards a OLB in the 1st just because Im not sure if a decent/"Parcells" type LB will be available in the 2nd round and plus we could find some good value in a CB in the 2nd round..

There are plenty of OLBs projected to go in the 2nd round. Clint Sintim, Michael Johnson, Aaron Maybin, Larry English, Connor Barwin, Tyrone Mckenzie, Lawrence Sidbury (may go in 3rd), Cody Brown (3rd), and sleeper Jason Williams (4th round). There are far more 2nd round talent in OLB, than in WR or CB.


I just dont feel that Hakeem Nicks would be much of an impact, and we could draft a WR just as good if not better in the 2nd round. He may be a little bit overrated and to me he is not worthy of the 25th overall pick.

There is nothing wrong with your view. You made some good points. I think Nicks could impact this team because he would be starting by mid season if not earlier.

:up: But you're right, OLB and CB needs to be addressed, even more than WR. Right now, I see Nicks being the best available at #25, unless the two forementioned CBs or a LB like Cushing or Mauluga fall. But if it came down to Nicks and Butler, THIS WEEK I would chose Nicks.

It's up to our FO to make the right decision. Speculating over who they should pick and why is all the fun for us.:up:

From another post of his I read Nicks would be his first choice amongst guys like Rey Maulauga, Cushing, Matthews, Sintim, Butler......

CK thinks he is very Anquan Boldin like in his body and style of play. And THAT's what's for dinner!!

LOL at only 6 feet, he is virtually the same size as Boldin. Plus what is with the OPPS on Ted Ginn. All in all that was a solid receiver pick, and he hasnt even had a strong armed QB. Look at Nicks and you will see why, he is that good.

I can only imagine Nicks and Ginn on opposite sides of each other with Bess/Camarillo shredding the middle week in and week out.

Nicks fits Pennington, plain and simple. All those short routes we saw...now imagine a receiver with the power of Nicks gaining extra yards off those plays. Opening up the field for Ginn even more. And BOTH receivers make a valuable transition to Henne in the future as well.

If it's a wide receiver we take in the first round, it's Nicks that I want.

Honestly, if the kid can play, he can play. There's no taking away from that.

Did his interviews scream "thug"? I highly doubt that. Some people can't articulate their words as well as others, or may not be the best when it comes to interviews.

Look at Ricky, the guy used to be dead scared of reporters...but he was a great player.

I guess Its all just about ones personal opinons. Im more of a defence guy, Im a firm beleiver in defence wins championships....I also beleive a good team doesnt need great 1st round talent WR's to win a superbowl. The pats did it a few years back without a bunch of no name WR's.

I just pray that a Vonte Davis/Rey Mauluga/ Brian Cushing or someone falls so we dont end up drafting a "luxury Pick" because we are no where near that point as a franchise...we still have a long ways to go...

and secondly, why the "oops" ? are you trying to say that ted is a bust ? because if so i'd like you to revisit reggie wayne's career history (because it began a lot like ginn's.. of course, wayne had a better quarterback but that's no big deal huh ? ... ) and come back here to explain to me why reggie wayne should've been a bust in your standards after his first 2 years and is now an all pro !

i wouldnt be upset if the first 2 picks in the draft was CB, that is our largest concern after FA, we need 1 stud and some depth. we have a good amount of high picks this year hopefully we can snag a couple if possible. i see us drafting a lot of D and 1 WR and Oline man and thats it.

Rarely, pass rushers contribute on their first year...Peezy is our only threat today to rush the QB, with CamWake a ? Channing cannot pennetrate. If we delay the drafting of a talented? (or 2) pass rusher like Sintim, English, or Barwin, and rely on a healthy Porter for pressing the Qb and an unproven (for the NFL) Wake...We might be in for a few long seasons....We might as well prepare Joeys succesor behind the master
1. Sintim
2.Robiskie
2b. Macho Harrris
3. Loadholt

Amen...I couldn't agree more. Louis Murphy has all the skills to be a Dominant WR. Passing on a WR with our 1st pick would allow us to take a LB or Vontae davis(he'll be gone by 25 i think after the 4.40 he ran at pro day) and sean smith or a LB(if we get davis) at 44 and then see what receivers are available for our other 2nd rounder.

Ok, now I gotta say something. First, you are on another thread talking about Nicks only having one good season. Nicks' stats improved EVERY season. Now you are talking up Murphy who hasn't been productive at all in college. Murphy was in pro-style pass happy offense and could not catch more than 38 balls and 660 in any season. He can't get open, and his football IQ is very questionable. If there is any prime example of Florida Gator WRs who don't work out in the NFL...well you're talking one up right now.

He's no different than what we already have on our roster.

Ted Ginn Jr. Was drafted #9, Reggie Wayne was #30

Reggie also only started 9 games in his first year and 7 in the 2nd year.
Ted Ginn started 9 his first year and 14 his 2nd.

Reggie finally got a full season as a starter in his 3rd year and produced decent numbers with 838 yards and 7 TD's. It was his 2nd full season were he took of and broke for over 1000 yds and 12 TD's.

So this will be Ted Ginns 2nd full year and hopefully his time to shine, if not :oops: haha.

let's keep things in perspective. Peyton manning > chad pennington.

i wouldn't be much critical of ginn until i see our slinger step onto the field and give him opportunities downfield ( the experience is one thing, ginn has it under his belt, if he can't be productive with CP as his quarterback, i can live with that, but if he can't get it done with henne, i'll have my doubts about him or perhaps henne )

Wow yall really dont remember....I was all in the draft forum just days before the draft and people like the great "boomer" who is suppose to be the draft guru, was all about Ted Ginn.....Ted Ginn was the popular choice. Anyways Im done talking about that, I know Im right.

Reggie wayne was picked 30th
Ginn was 9th

Ted Ginn has had every oppurtunity to shine and he has shown very little.

Im pretty sure that we all feel that Ted Ginn will never be an elite WR in the NFL, otherwise why would we be talking about drafting another WR in the 1st round?

You're right about people on this board saying "we needed speed", but they were not screaming for Ginn at #9 IN THE FIRST ROUND. Just like another poster mentioned on here already, the consensus was for Brady QUINN not GINN. I wanted Patrick Willis, but most were screaming for Quinn.

Please stop.

Although I'm not sure your completely off mark in Murphy's evaluation, calling Florida's offense pass happy and pro-style couldnt be any further from the truth.

A quick glance at Tebows pass attempts would show you they averaged roughly 21 pass attempts per game - 14 games. (In 2007 it was a bit higher at 27ish attempts per game)

I also think its rediculous to knock "Gator recievers", remember Nat Moore was a Gator (granted he was a tailback with UF, but he was one of our all-time best WRs."

During spurrier's tenor, sure, maybe Gator WR were overhyped because of the gaudy numbers they put up, but with Urban Meyer's spread offense, the featured player is the QB, not the RBs or WRs.

All that said, Louis Murphy doesnt impress me enough to take before the 4th round.

Perhaps you should go reread my other post. I said nothing about Nicks having one good season. I compared him to Michael Clayton of the Bucs(i think its a fair comparison) who has had 1 good season. Or to make a comparison that you all can remember....Oronde Gadsden. Phenomenal hands(remember the one handed stab accross the middle...EPIC!) but outside of a highlight reel catch here and there he wasn't consistent...why? because he couldn't get open on a consistent basis. I could be totally wrong, and Nicks could also be an Antonio Gates type who uses his body to shield the defender to make up for his lack of separation but that makes him a possession WR, which is less valuable than a HR threat. I would rather have a deep threat so that the safetys will always have to start a yard deeper to honor the speed on both sides(with Ginn opposite). That will open our run game tremendously...ie no need for Wildcat, which was progressively less successful toward the end of the season, and was non-existent against the Ravens....damn that game!!!!


To address part B...Murphy didn't get the ball much because of Percy Harvin, Chris Rainey, Jeff Demps, Tim Tebow, Aaron Hernandez, the list goes on and on. He was a solid WR when his # was called. And calling Urban Meyers/Dan Mullens spread offense a Pro style offense is laughable. Perhaps your football IQ should be in question not Louis Murphy's. I do agree with you that Murphy was knucklehead at times, but never was it detrimental to the team. He plays with emotion, something Parcells(and myself) loves to see. Oh and heres some food for thought. Percy Harvin last season 40 recs. 644 yds and 7 tds. Louis Murphy 38 rec. 655 yds. 7 tds. I'm guessing you didn't realize that and most people don't. He was able to shine in an offense full of legendary talent on the biggest stages. Remember the TD in the National Champ game against one of the best secondaries in college football? Louis Murphy has all the physical tools to be a stud receiver in the NFL and picking him would allow us to address other needs first.

Bottom Line. If the stars align either Brian Cushing or Vontae Davis will be around come pick 25 and whichever one is left will be our pick and it will be a good one. Hopefully Cushing in my opinion(due to his versatility to play ILB or OLB) then Sean Smith with our first pick in the second rd. Think about having a 6' 4" corner. hmm what receivers do we have in our division? TO and Randy Moss...it might be helpful to have someone tall who can matchup to those guys. Then we can address WR...at that point a guy like Murphy might still be around and there are others out there too, I just used him as an example(and a good one). Sorry for the length, I will now step down from my soapbox.

Nicks will be there @ #44, he may last even longer! He is not worth a top pick.
