    Huge reach. Why not let the combine happen before making such statements? A 2nd for 4th round talent....

    Well I think he has Jordie Nelson type talent. I think his toughness was the reason A&M beat Alabama. He was a headcase for Alabama and they didn't expect him to ball out like he did, he tore them up on the seam.

    Would you draft Jordie Nelson with a 2nd round pick? I would. But I think Swope will be there in the third round, I hope.

I don't think it's wise to pass on Stedman should he be available. I also don't think it's wise to pass on a Free Agent to save money. Those are my fears.
    Teal, I think Miami is going to be more aggressive as far as WR, then any year ever. Don't be surprised if Miami gets one of the big three in FA, then in the draft, ends up drafting 2 receivers within their 1st 5 picks (1st to 4th). Miami wants to be a top passing team in this offense, they needed young franchise QB ( I really believe they got one), they now need to fix their receivers, and don't be surprised, if within those 5 picks, it's 2 receivers, and a pass-catching TE.

    As someone who actually watched Jordy Nelson in HS and at KST. I have been a huge fan. Jordy has always had the size, smarts and speed to excel in football. But reading the opinions here of Swope, he is a pure slot. Not a boundary threat. Where as Jordy Nelson excels where ever you put him. Also Jordy is a big 6'3.

    I will be honest though, with TAM moving to the SEC this past year, I didn't watch much of them. But off of 2011, I was never impressed w/ TAM...Sherman and Tannehill included. Its why I don't care much for Sherman, and why I thought Tannehill should have been taken later (15-25).

    What sucks is you Ireland haters, actually offer nothing but the same ole chit. Hint: we get it. We all get it. Just because you and many like you continue to beat the same drum, won't change a thing. You guys are like broken records. Same chit different day.

    I think he reaches the 4th (Even though I believe he is worth more then a 4th), but who knows, then again if he has the type of combines I believe he is capable of, he may even be taken by someone in the 2nd.
    Thank goodness our Ryan continues to improve and looks like the real deal, unlike...

    Not really the news we were hoping for. Here's to hoping that this is only a rumor and nothing more. Nice chemistry, but not the guy we need.
    What's the problem, Swope is a bigger, stronger version of Wes Welker and Davone Bess with longer speed. He is an upgrade over Marlon Moore and Armon Binns. Grabbing Swope with our latter 3rd round pick would be ideal, but we may have to snatch him up with our early 3rd pick.

    And don't worry, I'm sure we are going to either acquire one of the big FA Wrs (Jennings, Wallace, or Bowe) and/or draft a first-round talent WR; I'm hoping its Cordarelle Patterson, that guy is a PLAYMAKER and future stud in the NFL.

    We currently have 7 WRs on our roster. Brian Hartline (if we re-sign him), Davone Bess, Armon Binns, Jeff Fuller, Rishard Matthews, Marlon Moore, and Brian Tyms.

    This is what I would like to see on our roster look like after the FA/Draft for WRs:

    Greg Jennings, Cordarelle Patterson, Davone Bess, Ryan Swope, Rishard Matthews, Jeff Fuller, Armon Binns (1st yr WR needs a longer look), and Brian Tyms (deep speed practice Squad WR). This unit not only improves our speed significantly but also mixes in some pretty good possession WRs.

    If we do sign of the big FA WR, there is no need to re-sign Brian Hartline for $6 mil a year to be our #2 when Patterson would be more effective for less money. If we did re-sign Hartline, Patterson would take the job out right before October ends so it makes no sense to me. Don't get me wrong, I like Hartline, he plays hard but we need playmakers who score TDs, and once we sign a big FA WR, there is no need to speed more money on a #2 when we can grab a really good WR in the draft.
