    Which is kind of my point. If a guy can go inside and outside then he's worth a relatively high pick. A slot only guy isn't worth that to me. I think if you look around the league at slot only kinds of players (ie, don't play on the boundary and don't offer much if anything in the return game) you'll find they weren't drafted very high, if at all.

    The only ones I could find are Harry Douglas, Earl Bennett and Early Doucet, who were all third rounders. Emmanuel Sanders has been used primarily as a slot guy but he had return ability coming out of SMU.

    All three of those guys can help your team and make a few plays, but none of them are worth a third rounder. Not to me. I'm not looking to come out of this draft with an Earl Bennett for my third round pick.

    I say bring in as many WRs as possible. Turn WR into a strength and hence Tanny into a strength

    Couldn't agree more. if I were GM I would sign Wallace/Jennings, keep Hartline and draft two receivers in the first three rounds.

    While I see the upside of adding talent at WR, I still believe a upgrade at TE is a absolute must.

    My biggest fear is that we are headed for "sign jennings and draft Swope and call it a day at WR".

    I am deathly afraid that ireland will have no part of any WR draftee that is a major home-run speed burner like Patterson, Austin or Bailey.
    Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.

    Swope will go in the 3rd round. If we don't take him New England will. I highly doubt he falls to the 4th. He's quick, good routes, good hands, good RAC. While he lacks the straight line speed, he does have the quickness to separate. He is 6'0 but as a former RB he is comfortable taking hits and making yards after contact. IMHO, he is going to be a solid move the chains slot WR in this league, and he's highly unlikely to be a bust. He will definitely be better than some of the 2nd round WR's and will be a productive guy. I'm hoping we grab him in the 3rd round.

    Swope would have to be the third new addition at WR. If they sign Jennings or Wallace and draft someone in the 2nd (Patterson, Allen, Hopkins, Hunter, Woods, Patton, etc. or higher), or if they go ham and draft two WR's early, I can see Swope being a valuable peace. Don't know if we want to commit that much to the position, but the #1 you draft or sign replaces Hartline, and 2nd pick kicks Bess into a battle for the #3 spot with Swope. Having both Bess and Swope to work the middle of the field would really give Tannehill some great 3rd and 4th options in Spread packages. Hartline and Swope can't coexist in my opinion, and I don't really want him back anyway.

    He does remind me a bit of a bigger Wes Welker. I think he'll be a stud in the right situation.

    1. Lane Johnson
    2a. Robert Woods
    2b. Trufant/Poyer
    3a. Wheaton
    3b. Swope

    I don't know if you can take on that many rookies at one position, but I'd dig it.
