    Even if we trade back 5-6 spots WR is still the best value position. A Benjamin or Lee at 16 or 17 would be great value.

    Florida has 3 CB prospects who will likely be drafted, perhaps all of them in the first 4 rounds. Robertson, Watkins and Purifoy.

    So what does that say about Kelvin Benjamin that he totally owned that Florida secondary for over 200 yards receiving? Or that he would be a huge asset in the red zone at 6'5 240?

    In the slot Benjamin is like an elite athletic TE, on the outside he can defeat bump coverage easily and get down the field. It's like getting a Jared Cook and a quality 1st rd outside Wr in one.

    Starting to like this idea more and more. Evans at 11 sounds real good to me. Kyle Van Noy or Dee Ford will be there in round 2. We have filled almost all needs

    1. Evans- WR
    2. Van Noy- OLB
    4. Murray- QB
    5. Seastrunk/Storm Johnson- RB
    6. OT
    7. S

    CB/OLB first then RB then TE/WR... priorities man we are definitely ok at WR to not have to address it in the first round.

    WAY TOO MANY HOLES

    We the front office doesn't think we have a CB hole. They have not brought in a single CB and they have said that they are ok going into camp with Coty/BWW. No RB is worth a first and maybe even a 2nd. That leaves us with just OLB has a large hole which could come in the second. I rather have Barr then Jordan Matthews in the second, but Mike Evans is a beast.

    Seems like the chance of drafting a WR with the 11th pick s greater now that we have signed players to meet many of our needs this off season.We resigned a starting safgety and 2 300 lb+ D lineman and added yet another in woods. We got an outside pass rusher and an inside linebacker.

    We also signed our starting RT.

    We have not signed any Wrs despite losing 2 of them to free agency though i think there is a chance Williams will come back. The longer D-Will remains unsigned the lower his value on thre market and we could resign him cheap.

    We have 3 quality guys but one of them is in the last year of his contract and another is unproven as an every down player. You have a guy with elite size in Benjamin and a guy with elite speed in Cooks. A great play maker in Lee. The idea is more viable still even if Evans and Watkins are off the board.

    In case you are not paying attention we have signed players to fill most of those holes. Still have not released Wimbley or CJ either though it seems inevitable that we will by June 1st.

    If Evans were still there at #11 I would say draft him. Wright, Hunter, Washington and Evans. A dream.

    Doubt Watkins and Evans make it to pick #11. Would love Ebron but have my doubts about him making it to us too.

    In case you have not been paying attention, Shaun Phillips will primarily be used as a defensive end, meaning Wimbley will more then likely be cut. We still need OLB, Woodyard plays ILB dumbo
