Just Wallace + Hartline is just not going to cut it.
1) Grab Wallace (and/or Jennings)
2) Grab Finley or Jared Cook
3) Draft Patterson in the 1st
4) Draft the best WR available in the 2nd or 3rd.
5) Draft O-line and CB's with the other picks (2 - 4) (depending on Long walking or cutting Incgnito)
So we end up with Wallace, Patterson, Rogers/Bailey/Austin/Swope, Hartline (or not), Matthews, Bess, Binns....at WR.
...and Cook, Clay, Egnew at TE.
We basically need a whole new WR core. Let's stop playing around folks...we were 27th in scoring offense!
Look at Wallace beast on an end-around at 3:30.. stoked ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSOlJCoZmTI
At the end of the day I'm happy with any of the 3 WRs. All 3 are #1 talents in my opinion.
Some may argue that Wallace isn't, due to his production this last season but like I said in a post on another thread - The Steelers have been on a steady decline since the end of the 2011 regular season when they lost 3-4 and then put up the snoozer in Denver that I don't even want to think about. And 2012 was even worse with all of the injuries they suffered, they looked like **** to say the least...
They are old and injured at most positions and that affects the WRs. It's not fair to give Wallace a total pass but it needs to be taken into account. He's a #1 WR and not as one dimensional as some people here think. I've watched loads of highlight videos and he runs more than 2-3 routes like some here claim he does...
Fin fan till' the coffin slams!
Pass on both. Otherwise it will be severely overpaying for over-valued players. It'll just keep us down the path of mediocrity.
Just say no to the path of mediocrity!
As I have said, I would have no problem with any of the big three (Even though I hear Bowe may never get to taste FA), but again, IMO the best scenario is to bring in Jennings, draft 2 receiver in the 1st 5 picks to slowly learn from Jennings, and try to sign Hartline to a sensible contract. Miami needs smart reliable receivers, not receivers that are explosive but not as reliable.
All have met with Miami:
1st Eli Apple (CB):
Phins really like him.
2nd Noah Spence (DE):
Top 15 talent w/ drug issues.
3rd Joshua Garnett (G):
The 2015 outland trophy winner.
4th Su'a Cravens (LB/S):
5th Kevin Byard (S):
Really good at route recognition.
6th Quinton Jefferson (DT)
3rd down rotaional DT.
7th Chris Swain (RB):
Could all this mike Wallace talk be a smoke screen?
