    Butler looked good at combine, to me I can see his floor being Justin Gage, ceiling is Plaxico Burress. Would be a great complement to Corey Davis.

    I'd like to draft him, but Jrob already said we're getting a vet wr, so I doubt we draft a wr as high as he'll go. But good news is this draft is loaded with good wr prospects, so we could get great value in later rounds.

    It doesn't seem crazy when AB talks about wanting a new deal....who wants to give up anything of value and then be handcuffed by AB refusing to play if he doesn't get a new deal....and then the media circus that surrounds him...

    The one positive thing about trading for him is that you would be getting him with no guaranteed money left in his deal and thus you could cut his a$$ if/when he acted out

    My guess is some team does get him for a 3rd that will become a 2nd with production/playing time measures

    Emmanuel Hall said that he's spoken with us a lot, and seems pumped at the thought of being drafted to us. He fits the profile- fairly raw, high character, minor injury concerns, inconsistent hands, big upside. He's fast and explosive as can be. Could be a better Jeremy Maclin.

    If we go with day 1 starters, AJ Brown and N'Keal Harry can be impactful a la Juju SS, and hopefully had in the second. They are big, physical receivers with YAC ability, and beasts at run blocking. They can dominate whatever sorry CB is on them while the best CB attempts to stop Davis.

    Deebo Samuel could be a star, or a bust. He's got a lot of Odell to his game (or like a more polished, physical Taywan T., for a less ambitious comparison) but a history of injuries. Still, as a player, he's an exceptional prospect.

    Hakeem Butler intrigues me. These huge guys are usually drafted with little skill as receivers, but he's a natural at tracking the ball. And he enjoys imposing his will on CBs every single play, both while run blocking and with the ball in his hands. You can't coach that. You also can't coach his size or speed. If you feel like you can coach him the other things, I sure wouldn't bet against him.

    That's as far as I've gotten. It's a deep WR class. Size, speed, YAC- it's all there. I don't think that we'll be able to resist getting in on this position group.

    This is a deep class for WRs and DL, and I hope we grab both early.

    Yea, if Tyrell williams is going to demand a big contract bc the free agent class is so weak, then I'm all for grabbing a WR in the 2nd. There are a lot of guys that im really intrigued by, 4 that look really special.

    I like everyone of those guys, add the two speedsters from Ohio st, and thats basically my list. Anyone from that bunch would be great.

    But Jrob definitely wants a vet, problem is the weak free agency. Nobody wants to pay Adam Humphries or Tyrell Williams 12 million a year, I think that's why we're in on Brown. Either way we'll draft a receiver, thankfully it's deep enough that we don't have to spend an early pick unless its best player on our board.

    This guy is so underrated. I like him 10 times more than DK. If he somehow falls to round 2 , you absolutely must take him. Hell, take him in the 1st

    I like all the top guys except DK. AJ Brown might be my favorite. Ridley gives me a good feeling, too.

    I agree on AJ Brown, but Riley Ridley is garbage. Hes a subpar athlete, with subpar production.
