    Would love to see Minter, but he's probably a luxury the team can't afford. Bigger needs to address (OG, DE and maybe CB) in the first two rounds.

    I'd pass, only for one reason... my favorite ILB (AJ KLEIN) should be available with our 3rd comp. It's great value, but I think we risk it on McCarthy one more year. Draft a 3rd round ILB as a backup, now we have two capable backup LBs (include Fokou).

    I'm on the same boat. However, say DEs: Ansah, Werner, Datone Jones, Tank, Hunt, and Moore & CBs: Milliner, Rhodes, Trufant, Banks, and Taylor are all off the board; plus we went OG @ #10... do we then go Minter?

    Or, do we reach on a CB like Amerson/Slay or DE like Montgomery/Okafor. Perhaps a WR?

    We need to take a WR in the first three rounds.. I'd love Hunter if he drops to the 2nd, maybe even Woods with our 2nd. The WR class is really deep this year, we can find decent talent in the 3rd.

    Yeah I think we really need to look at WR in the 2nd/3rd rounds.

    He would be perfect in the slot. Potential of having Kendall/Kenny on the outside & Swope in the slot.

    KW is not a wide receiver though.. he will primarily play slot his entire career.. those small 5"10, small hand guys just don't make good outside receivers. Unless KW is the next coming of Steve Smith, he has to stay inside. So yeah, we drafted a slot receiver in the 1st round.. woo.

    He's playing outside next year... so here's to hoping for Steve Smith Jr. :beerbang:
