Day 3 - Draft General Discussion

having a #1 wr is all nice and everything but if you can have multiple wrs that can constantly get open thats good as well. that was our problem last yr and we took major steps to fix that problem, but jenkins has mike wallace potential and his speed will make things so much easier for crabtree and others

We still need a #1 reciever. Jenkins projects ideally as a #3 in the slot. But, that we can talk about in next years draft.

Jenkins is the next Mike Wallace.

That would be nice.

So I have a question for you. Who was the #1 receiver for the Rams with the greatest show on turf? Would that be Isaac Bruce or Tory Holt? If you have enough competent WRs, who gives a s**t who the #1 is.


Sounds good, man.

So long as he has a QB who can throw him open and hit him in stride...

Something he sorely lacked at Illinois, and even then he accounted for half their offense.
He does, he was drafted in the 2nd round last year. I don't expect CK to be the man this year, but with some actual off season and TC I think so.
mike wallace is a but faster though

i see more jermy maclin with more potential than what maclin has been

Id definitely be fine with that.

I'm not so sure. One of Jenkins' 40 times was clocked at 4.31, which is blazing. Either way, he looks great running with pads on.

Pretty good comparison, I'd have to agree.

Really good info from Trent... so we got Looney at 117 and he was the guy we would have taken at 92. Kind of had a grin on his face when someone asked him if he wanted Gradkowski the C from Delaware... the Ravens took him right before us and the war room was visibly upset. He just said "who knows".

Also said Frank Gore likes watching backs and has a good eye for them. I couldn't hear but sounds like Frank said he liked James a couple years back. Also, surprised he mentioned that after taking Cam Johnson that Mayock said he had him in his top 100. Weird that he would even mention what Mayock said about the pick but he was kind of talking about how they felt about him and they aren't worried about the illness.

Both Harbaugh and Baalke said we are about done on our 90 man roster and will be surprised at some of the names on our undrafted free agent list. Also, talked about DL... Dobbs and Williams... said they feel they are high ceiling guys. They must think a lot of them and RJF/Tukuafu to not have drafted 1 guy.

Edit: One thing about Trent is it's not only about getting good football players but he likes to get good value. He has done a lot of trading back in mid rounds when he has a player locked on and knows we can keep moving back a bit more. It's like playing with fire which might have happened with Gradkowski but we got a lot extra and still got Looney (some times it works, some times it doesn't). He did it with Bowman a few years back... 79 to 91 and got a 4th the next year and still got him.

Interesting note, 27 trades, not the highest, but counted for 101 picks off the non comp picks changed hands atleast once, and only 5 2013 picks were exchanged, if you don't include the RG3 trade. Minnesota got Detroit's 4th and Tennessee's 6th in 2013, and we of course got the 3rd(Carolina), 5th(Indy) and 6th(Miami). And NE didn't do any draft day maneuver for 2013 picks. They actually only have 5 picks in 2013, their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 7th.

That's good to hear, I also got high hopes for Ian Williams, Tukuafu and Dobbs.

do we have any competent WR's?

using two HOF caliber guys to give examples is not realistic at the moment being we don't have one

we will be drafting WR again next year

Agree. Really thought we already had good depth there.
