    WR Rishard Matthews, Nevada

    I think we could use a guy like this. I have watched him come up through Bakersfield Junior College and U of Nevada (tearing my Bulldogs a new one), and he has beasted at both levels. Very good routes, hands, body control, ball skills, and hard to tackle. Then I was surprised at his 40 times (4.47 at combine, 4.44 at pro day) because he never struck me as a speed guy or deep threat, just your classic X receiver. He plays like a pro. I think he could replace Marlon Moore immediately because he has almost the same speed as Moore, but is more physical and much more skilled. I think in a few years, he will be a Greg Jennings type of guy. I could really see Philbin going for a guy like this. He would be a good value in the 2nd round, and a steal in the 3rd IMO.


    If all you're goin' on is my confession, forget it. I'm simply not credible. -Dale Gribble

    I made this post before I realized how ridiculously deep the draft was at WR, but my sentiments are the same

    Cunningham and Matthews look like prototypical Green Bay receivers. I like this.

    Matthews ran an official 4.62 at the combine...much faster at his pro day. Philbin compared this kid to James Jones from the Packers.

    I like the Cunningham pick better.
    Matthews doesn't seem to have much quickness from what I have read about him. He will have a hard time separating.
    I doubt he will make the final cut.

    Interesting to see who makes the cut at receiver.

    guys like this are why I was hoping we'd wait til at least round 5 for a Wr.. especially after realizing that mcnutt was freefalling, and I thought he was our target.

    there are a number of guys that could come in and contribute in the WCO.. I was very pissed about the bmarsh trade, but I've been doing some thinking/reading/watching.. and I can see why we shyed away from a prototypical #1 wr with the direction we are heading.

    we need quick shifty guys who can run precise routes. a bit of seperation will actually come from play design, so we don't need a real physical guy to get seperation necessarily. guys who can cut sharp, and change direction quickly, and find soft spots are guys we are looking for.. brandon marshall, as good as he is, just simply isn't that guy....

    exactly. the west coast offense gets guys open through schemes and plays, not relying on individual talent to get open. it calls for a different type of WR, like the type you describe that is very precise at route running, and very fast runners.
