Name your top-5 WR's to watch this season looking at the 2012 NFL Draft

Jeffrey may be more intriguing (on paper), but Blackman is the better pick. The best thing about Blackmon is his consistency. He'll have an instant impact.

This is similar to the Suh/McCoy debae. McCoy looked comparable on paper, but it's not that close.

but I don't want a WR in the first, would rather take a CB

Michael Floyd has 3 alcohol related arrest I doubt he will be taken in the top two rounds, nobody wants a drunk.

A serious red flag indeed. Floyd will go through the interview process and make a good first impression on a team and I think someone will take a chance on his talent in the 1st. Too much talent for him to fall like that.
Blackmon made a sick catch last night.
Right now, I might not go after a receiver until probably the 3rd round. I think we still need to continue to bolster not only the secondary but the pass-rush. We are good, but we want to be ELITE in pass rushing. We want to build a team that is set for years and have a group that can rotate anyone in and pretty much not miss a beat. Defense does win championships. All in all though, I think with our team, the BPA strategy now becomes even more a better idea. Add offensive and defensive playmakers. Difference-makers. Sparks.

Some good receivers that should be around in the 3rd to 4th:

Joe Adams, Arkansas
Jarius Wright, Arkansas
A.J. Jenkins, Illinois
Jeff Fuller, Texas A&M

Assuming Edwards is the most likely casualty from this year's WR corps (Crabtree, Morgan, and Williams should all be back) I'd hope to see us go for a big red-zone type. Tell me more about Fuller.
Right now for me:

Blackmon
Floyd
Jeffery
Wright
McNutt/Sanu

Yah Jeff Fuller, once known as a future 1st round pick now seem more likely to be there in the 3rd. Man he really took a step back, its like hes not on the same page with Tannehill this year. But would love to get this guy in the 3rd if there.

Did playing fantasy CFB help notice a lot more names or what?

Yeah it did. I started watching a lot more mid-major college games. Brazill was my favorite WR to watch (besides Jarius Wright of Ark.). Brazill catches everything thrown his way, they do end-arounds with him every so often, and he returns punts. He's not the fastest the guy, but he's quick and runs good routes.
Marvin Mcnutt
I think we pick best player available at WR. A dominant WR to compliment Crabtree would enhance our offense hugely, especially with Morgan, Williams as well. Its all about weapons for AS and having two first round WR's, VD and Walker, Gore, Hunter and Miller we would start to have an elite offense.

Free agency is loaded with big split ends, It should be easy to lure someone here

I'd still like to draft a WR though, more of a fast/quick guy that gets seperation, I have us taking K.Wright, Baylor in the 2nd

Split end- V.Jackson, Morgan
Flanker- Crabtree, Wright
Slot/Return Specialist- Williams

Marvin Jones Cal

Yeah I said it!
He's a good intriguing prospect for sure TO, definitely someone to target on Day 3
