    Who would you rather have at 2b: Wheaton, Goodwin, or Austin?

    Say we are targeting a second WR to compliment the one taken at 12 or 42...with our second pick in the 2nd round, who would you rather have? Wheaton, Goodwin, or Austin.

    I don't think Austin will be around. I think Markus Wheaton is the next Mike Wallace. Unbelievable speed with a lack of physicallity. So he'd be my pick.

    As the week went on he started to be more physical and he showed he can get off press which was my biggest concern with him. He's got short area quickness and can get separation off the line and I think he's already a better route runner than Wallace. I would definitely take Wheaton over the other two.

    Goodwin is a lot of speed but still pretty raw. I think he'll be primarily a slot receiver and special teams return man. He's one of those guys where you just need to get the ball in his hands quickly so he can let his athletic ability do the rest. Austin is pretty much the same way but not as raw.

    My favorite WR is Cordarelle Patterson but I suspect we will pass on him for a CB like Milliner or Banks at 12. So he'll be gone by the time we pick again at 42. So since I also believe that Allen will be gone by the time we pick again at 42 I think we will likely go with Hopkins or Woods to start opposite Jennings. Then we would double up by grabbing a (Mike Wallace type) of speedster to compliment him with our next pick.

    This is also why Mike Wallace doesn't make any sense whatsoever in FA. Because aside from being so expensive, Jennings makes more sense and we can find basically what Wallace would provide in the 2nd round for pennies on the dollar.

    Now if Ireland can find a way to trade his way back up into the 1st to grab Patterson I'm all for it, but barring that, I can foresee us bringing in Jennings via FA to start and bring Hopkins and Matthews under his wing as Bess brings Wheaton or Goodwin under his.

    WR: Hopkins, Bess, Wheaton
    WR: Jennings, Matthews

    Out of these three, I'm taking Wheaton, and it's not close.

    Austin is a really good player, but he's something else. Not a boundary WR - at least I don't see him as one. And CK mentioned it in relation to a different WR, but we have a good return man, so that negate some of Austin's value to us.

    Big Wheaton fan.

    Austin would be a great replacement for Davone Bess when his contract expires . . . but I'd also go Wheaton out of this group.

    Not likely that Wheaton or Austin will be there at 2b. Both have a shot of going late round 1. Wheaton's Senior Bowl week really helped his stock
