    Wow, after reading/skimming through all these pages two things become apparent:
    1. No matter how much the FO improved the WR core they are still not happy. (My guess is because fans are pissy Austin wast our draft pick)
    2. No matter how improved our top 3 guys are. It doesn't matter - the depth isn't good enough.

    I don't know a single Fin fan who was happy last year with the WRs. We should be cautiously optimistic about this group as it is ,ugh improved.

    If we don't see Tanne throw for an additional 6 TDs and 1000 yards ill be stunned.

    Every time I see a stupid post I remind myself we don't have this guy as a fan

    We've definately improved from last year. Wallace will draw a lot of attention, which should get other guys open. I like Gibson and Hartline better be able to produce this year, as some of these guys we drafted late/signed UDFA might have some potential. Even if only one of the group pans out, we will be fine. But I'm guessing at least two will make the final roster.

    But it's not about picking a WR just to pick one. If you don't feel like the ones there will be much better than what you have on your team then whats the point? The only receiver that put up numbers better than harline and \ or best was TY Hilton, and nobody thought he'd be what he is. All of the top WR drafted in the first 2 rounds didn't put up numbers anywhere close to Hartline or Bess so..

    Didn't we just draft a 6'5 262 pound former basketball player to play TE? Can't he be that guy? Also Keller should help in the intermediate red zone area, 10-20 yards out.

    I believe people meant #1 as in a Fitzgerald, Calvin Johnson type #1. But you gotta have good players. We had one that the staff considered good (hartline) and that's who they resigned. We added Wallace Keller and Gibson which should make Hartline even better.

    In the WCO maybe more then any other, the QB makes the WRs, not the other way around.

    You get get the 5 top WRs in the NFL, but them on a team with a QB that can't use them and it will amount to nothing but bitching over the few passes they are getting.

    B.S. Plenty wanted him in a Phins uniform. But you're not only drafting for the immediate season. WRs typically put up low numbers in their first year. That's no reason to ignore the position in draft. Many of those drafted have the potential to be better than Hartline and certainly the potential to be better than Bess.

    Watch Thigpen as a #4 WR.

    False.

    The WR route trees in the WCO are extensive. They actually have to read coverage and adjust a heckuva lot. You can't trot out just anyone out there.
