Imagine if we got Dez Bryant. Another Stud WR and KR/PR as well
Good idea, let's copy the Lions and Hawks and keep pouring picks and money into WR position.
Would you turn down the idea of having Maclin and Jackson on the 9ers? Crabtree and Bryant would be down right nasty.
Did it occur to you that maybe they could afford to take those guys because their OL is considered one of the best in the league?
Did it ever occur to you that we can draft O Linemen in other rounds besides the first? We may go after a few guys in FA so we can burn a first on a luxury pick and he would be needed. We lose 3 WR's at the end of the year and we need a KR/PR, Dez would fit in perfectly.
Bryant is awesome but I wouldn't take him. If you want a KR/PR, CJ Spiller is your man.
Drafting that high I want the player to get on the field, Dez would have a better shot getting serious playing time compared to Spiller. Both would be great additions but don't think we would shy away from the possibility.
I see what you're saying. I hate to say this, but Frank is not getting any younger and the beating he's been taking is finally starting to show. We've seen a lot more of Coffee this year than I seriously thought we would. If we sign Spiller, trust me, he will see the field quite often whether it be at running back or wide receiver.
A good example is Percy Harvin. He was draft in the first round (22nd) and he doesn't play every down. Sydney Rice and Berrian are starting and the RB is of course AP. But Harvin still gets a lot of playing time because of his versatility. You can put him as a RB or a WR and he gets in about 80% of the time. And Harvin is the KO returner. I think Spiller can play the same role for us as a rookie and like SF69ers said, Gore is not getting any younger and Gore seems to have yearly ankle injuries that causes him to miss games.
I really feel that Spiller can really complete our team by giving us that dynamic , speedy playmaker. Like MadDog says, a Chris Johnson for us. If Alex works out, we have a solid QB throwing to Crabtree and Morgan. Brandon Jones has potential to be the speedy WR. Gore the tough runner. Spiller will be that home run hitter.
We just need an o-line which I think we will address with our first 1st round pick (OT) and in the 2nd rd and beyond for Guards.
Very true....but I have a lil insight on a specific team. My buddy is a Browns fan, I know sad isn't it . Anyways they are in dire need of a RB, their OL is actually not too bad and their WR's are pretty good as well. What they are missing is a RB, Lewis is sucking major ass and isn't getting it done. I would seriously consider them in the market for Spiller or Best (if he declares).
I remember there is another RB that is thought to be the first RB off the board. Jonathan Dwyer out of GT I think.
Either way I think they go RB, Clausen will stay for his senior year.
The Browns will take a QB. Mangini is going to want "his guy". Or maybe even someone for that horrid defense.
The problem I see is what if no QB's are available....I know sounds dumb right? For instance I think Clausen and Locker could actually stay for their senior years, so who would they go after...Bradford . If a QB isn't there or isn't the right guy I can see them targeting a RB.
Locker should go back for his senior year and if he is smart he will. Before this season, under Sarkisian, he would not have been even remotely close to 1st round material. His game has improved, but he is still not close to NFL ready at this point. If he goes to a horrible team like the Rams he will NOT be successful right away, in fact he might even regress.
Another year with Sarkisian coaching him up would benefit Locker greatly. Of course Locker will look at what happened to Bradford and who knows. Locker would benefit from serving as an understudy for proven NFL QB, on a team with a good OC and QB coach.
If I was advising him, I would tell him to go back for his Sr year.
