    We are NOT drafting 3 WR's. Just won't happen.

    Look at what the Colts did with Luck and the Redskins with RG3. They got them weapons asap. After Luck, 2 TE's and a WR with the next three picks (with a D in worse shape than ours).

    We all know, Swope has good hands, plenty of speed, has a knack for getting open and runs excellent routes. He is intelligent on the pitch and is very much a Joe Philbin player, in pretty much every way. He is also Ryan Tannehills former house mate and best friend .. if that doesn't breed chemistry and understanding on the field what will?

    This game video sums up all of the above and demonstrates why I think he will be so effective, he absolutely rips apart Byalor in the red zone



    However an aspect of Swops game that is under appreciated is how tough the guy is, Swope is 6 foot, he isn't a giant or built like a tank but he is tough he can take hits and keep going, he can catch under pressure and he can block - very well. I think blocking is something that would be appreciated by Philbin/Sherman, sort of in the way they love Fasano, not a stud but a productive, honest player who gives it his all. This is a damn good example of how tough he is.



    Im no draft expert, but I watched all of the A&M games last season to check out Tannehill and as a result I sort of follow them now, I watched most the games again this season and I love this guy. He will never grab the national attention during draft time but he a reliable, tough, smart receiver who we could bring in and get production from in week one. I love this guy.

    No offense to Swope but Nwachukwu may be more the the deep threat the phins O needs.

    No one considers Swope a "deep threat" he is a slot/possession WR. Forget about Nwachukwu, Cordarelle Patterson is the ticket.

    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.
    I said something very similar earlier in the thread. Couldn't agree with you more.

    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.
    If we resign Hartline and take say Jennings, I will bet money our first pick will not be a WR. Much to the dismay of all the Patterson-Allen lovers.

    Agreed, Patterson would be great but we have too many other needs to go WR if we get Jennings and keep Hartline.

He always struck me as sort of a boxy 5'10 guy, but I guess I could be wrong.
