I like your list, but Why another 5'10 reciever though? too many guys in the draft tht are 6'4 and like 225.. We have Kyle Williams. We drafted Ronald Johnson and he was useless. We need big targets, yeah i kno he's good, but let him walk. I just dont see us drafting two DE's. Not tht we wouldnt need it, just sayin tht I dont see it. Check out my list and tell me what you think of those guys. Most of them are reachable.
It's not all about size. People get WAY too caught up with the size, speed, etc. -- let me ask you this: What has Kyle Williams done for this team so far? He has what, one catch? Maybe a few? We need PLAYMAKERS. Whether they're 5-9 and 6-5, we need playmaking talent. Guys that make things happen. If you've seen Kendall Wright play, he is that kind of player. He is a Steve Smith type of explosive talent that is dangerous with the ball in his hands. Unlike Ginn, he has the hands to go with his speed.
You say we have Kyle Williams, who sees almost no playing time, and vouch for big receivers (Dwight Jones comes to mind), when we already have Edwards, Morgan, and Crabtree -- all big, strong, receivers. We know at least one of the two between Braylon and Morgan will be back.
We have no other speed receiver on this team who gets much playing time. Ginn is it, and he's in his contract year. Now, overall I wouldn't complain if we drafted a bigger receiver, but this team needs the ability to stretch the field. We cannot live off short routes forever. We need someone dynamic who can flat out burn NFL corners and make them miss in the open field.
Also, you said I have two DE's in the list. It's actually OLB. Shea McClellin is a hybrid player who led BSU in sacks last year and is a very good mid-round OLB prospect. He has spent time playing both DE and OLB for Boise State. Reyes on the other hand would be a 3-4 DE, and is a very similar player to Ray McDonald.
