    I like your offseason free agents. Jennings and Cook would make it possible to really land the best players. Reid and Rhodes would be nice additions to the secondary and Porter could be the pass rusher the team needs opposite Wake. I don't think Wilson makes it to round 3. Overall, I do like this draft based on the free agent signings.

    Wilson's measureables will get him drafted in the 2nd round. Don't see him lasting till the 3rd. No DE? Might be the position on the team with the least depth...we have to get a DE in this draft.

    I was looking at the updated projections and Wilson now has a 3rd round grade. Just going off that

    Man, if we can get M. Wilson in the 2nd, I'd be doing back flips.

    He may be dropping a bit because he's not catching on to Mike Leach's offense. I read this about him recently:

    The other reasons surely involve Wilson, who caught nine passes for 100 yards Saturday but still seems to be trying to satisfy Leach's demands for reliability and physicality.

    The Cougars (2-6, 0-5), who will try to break a five-game losing streak Saturday at Utah (noon PDT, Pac-12 Networks), submitted their most complete, most physical and overall best performance of the season at Stanford, Leach said.

    But the first-year Wazzu coach is still looking for consistency from his receivers, and most notably from Wilson, the school's all-time leader in career reception yardage.

    The quest took another setback when a miscommunication between Wilson and quarterback Jeff Tuel undermined the Cougars' final stab at a game-tying touchdown from the Stanford 19-yard line, resulting in a sack as the final seconds elapsed.

    "He was supposed to run a comeback and he kept running downfield," Leach said of Wilson. "If they're not on the same page, it's not going to do anybody any good."


    That echoed a postgame interview in which Leach said Williams outplayed the star junior in practice last week and early in the Stanford game before Wilson "got hot toward the end. If Marquess wants to play the whole time, he's going to have to quit being hot and cold."
    What I don't know is was that an option route or an audible and he just didn't get the signal. Then you have to question whether he can read defenses or has the aptitude for an option route system. But either way at 6' 3"+ with decent speed (around 4.5) he'll get drafted before the 3rd round. I don't know of too many WRs with that size lasting past the 2nd round unless they played in FCS, Div II or just didn't produce in college. Wilson is the all time leader at WSU in receiving yards and he's 2nd in TDs. So far this year he has 47 receptions, 740 yards, 5 TDs and he's had 3 100-yard games. He's still producing and it's 3 years of production not just a flash in the pan. I'd be shocked if he lasted till the 3rd.

    Yeah agreed that some of these guys won't get to where you have them. I think Rhodes sneaks into the 1st round as well. For the most part I like the players though. Reid and Rhodes would go a long way to helping our secondary...but they aren't my favorite guys. I think if I was going to double up on secondary help I would prefer to try and get Banks or Milliner in the 1st and then snag a Whitley or Elam in the 2nd. Thats just me.

    I love Sean Porter as a player...and although he isn't the perfect fit for what we need I think he's probably a BPA type of guy you just don't pass up.

    As for Wilson and Stills...those would be nice solid pick-ups in the 3rd. Wilson was my #3 WR going into this year...I think he's a stud and realistically he's MAYBE going to make it to the 2nd if he comes out. I like Stills value in the 3rd..but I would certainly be looking at some other available guys as well..particularly Swope.

    I guess the main drawback is there is no immediate pass rush help. Sean Porter is a great player as I said, but he's not going to put his hand in the dirt and hunt the QB. Maybe a guy like James Gayle or Dion Jordan is there in the 2nd and I think those are the type of guys that can come in on 3rd down as a rookie and hunt the QB.

    frankly i don't like it...not interested in reid with our top pick...marquess wilsons game is a lot of finesse but barring him running a 4.6 or something with those size measurables he's not sniffing round 3...

    at cb i like washingtons desmond trufant in press man...he matches up with keenan allen friday...set the dvr...i like trufant in the 2nd round...

    i'm in the process of putting together a list of targets in the top 3 rounds with our picks right now...got a pretty good list already
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    well don't expect any pipe dreams to be on my list cause a lot of guys we aren't sniffing...so even though i would love a mingo or a dmontre moore etc as a pass rush specialist i don't see it getting to us and so they won't be on the list...

    there's another part to this that i'm wondering about also...with the improved play of the cbs and jimmy wilson in the slot does miami feel like with a healthy richard marshall a resigned sean smith nolan carroll continuing to develop that they don't need to invest a high pick in the position??? maybe...i guess we'll see what the next 9 weeks tells us...
