Outstanding YAC! reminds me a lot of Andre Johnson the way he catches the football.

WOW!!! Yeah, this guy is nice! What round is he expected to go? Would love to be able to get Justin Hunter bottom of the 1st and this kid in 3rd. Doubt he last that long though....reminds me of Julio Jones with his size and speed.

With his Height , Weight, Skill and production he is a 1st rd. Razorback didn't too well this year not the players fault, so it may drop him late 2nd possibly 3rd.

That's it 2nd and 3rd receiver at best on good teams. At one point Gore was our leading receiver and rusher. That is unacceptable in today's wide open offense.

I agree it is a need but not the top need....

We need the following....DT, DL, WR, S, TE, K, CB.

With that being said here is who I like at WR in the early rounds
Justin Hunter
Keenan Allen
Corderelle Patterson
Tavon Austin
Robert Woods
Terrance Williams

I would clarify your needs to
DE A 3-4 DE that is cowboys successor, let Cowboy mentor him and rotate in in 2013.
NT- A NT who can not only stop the run but also penetrate or collapse the middle and maybe get a sack or two. (dare to dream)
OL-An athletic OL who can play back up LT and RT. Active all game days. (takes Leonard Davis's roster spot)
TE- A true #2 TE that can get down field to block for the modified pistol and can catch the ball consistently.
WR- A true big bodied possession WR who is sure handed to replace Moss.
WR- 2- a KR/PR specialist who is smart (knows the rules for fielding punts and kicks) and does not fumble.
OL- a true center that will be the starter in a year when Goodwin is gone.
QB- with the modified pistol, an athletic qb that can run, throw while rolling left and right should be drafted. The kid from K state comes to mind.

The injuries to Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams really do increase our need to draft at least two wide receivers.

In the later rounds, there are some interesting possibilities.

Aaron Mellette from Elon, Marcus Davis, and Tyrone Goard from Eastern Kentucky are all possible picks on day 3.

In the late first I like Tavon Austin. He is versatile and highly skilled.

Quinton Patton from Louisiana Tech and Stedman Bailey from West Virginia would be good picks in the second round.

*Cordarrelle Patterson is intriguing, but he only has one year of experience.
Really like Notre Dame's all purpose offensive weapon Theo Riddick and see him as a poor man's version of Percy Harvin. Definitely worth a look in rounds 2-4.
What about Aaron Dobson. Height, willing blocker and strong hands like Crabtree. Strong hands are important with Kaepernick throwing.

Seen one game of his (so I'm basing it off that), but I wasn't impressed. He was non-existent and wasn't even Marshall's redzone threat.

Seems that we agree more often than not in the draft room.

When I get my next mock up I have us going after 3 ND players. Riddick is a perfect 4th RB/6th WR....I would say more like Cobb.

Not a 2-4 IMO, 5-6 because he isn't "elite" at anything and doesn't really have a position. But he saves us from needing 2 depth players .
