A look ahead in to the prospects of the 2014 Draft

I'm coming to you for all my WR prospect needs. Your WR draft crushes are attainable in the 2-4 rounds, unlike Marquise Lee and Sammy Watkins.

Andre Debose of Florida.is another. He's been underwhelming at times, but has explosive natural athletic ability, I think he is sorely in need of some quality coaching. He can return kicks, punts and is a true homerun threat. A very talented player that will likely end up as a value pick based on questions about his productivity....etc.





Notre Dane defensive players.

Stephen Tuit, DE/DT
Louis Nix III, NT
Bennett Jackson, CB

Offensive:

TJ Jones, WR
Chris Watt, OG
Zach Martin, OT

Same school
I think Teddy Bridgewater is the 'Real Deal'. Which ever cap team gets him is getting a franchise QB IMO.

Some beasts should be declaring next year, think our boys have done their research.
looks like a TE to me. watching the games. seems bigger than 225. but dude is a beast.
Round 1. CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu
Round 2. S Ed Reynolds
Round 2. WR Mike Davis
Round 3. C Bryan Stork
Round 3. QB Keith Price
Round 3. CB Justin Gilbert

Or trade the 1st round pick and both of the 2nd round picks for WR Marqise Lee.

I am with you jreff22 150% !!!

There shouldn't be any more excuse about giving the D priorty anymore, is time we get a big time playmaker WR !! I am with you, I strongly believe we need a tall, big and physical wideout who can excel in playing he deep ball, red zone and end zone plays.

Thanks very much for the info GoldenJoe !!! I have looked through the tapes of all these guys and my preference is as follows :

  • Jordan Matthews - I already knew about him being Jerry Rice's cousin. Love his height, size and speed.
  • Mike Evans - He plays more like a tight end in my eyes, as such not so keen about him
  • Brandon Coleman - This dude is so tall and yet amazingly quick. The only thing is he seems to prefer to catch the ball with his body. But, I like his playmaking ability
  • Devante Parker and Austin Hill - Not so much
  • Marqise Lee - I think he is a bit overrated, also we have enough 6 foot guys, I want 6'3" and above.

So, all in all, Jordan Matthews and Brandon Coleman are my picks, possibly with a preference on Coleman who might require a bit more work but probably has a bigger upside. I just love that amazing long stride, acceleration and vmax speed and I can see him burn any DBs. So, as far as big playmaking ability goes, I am leaning towards him more.

Once again, this is only based on my eye ball test and I am yet to look at the stats. But, is looking good. Let's get a WR beast in the 1st round in 2014 !!! Let's do it !!!

Any AJ Green or Julio Jones types available next draft that we can trade up for?

I don't know about Julio Jones or AJ Green types, but I am looking at 2 guys so far :

  • Jordan Matthews (6'3" 205 lbs)
  • Brandon Coleman (6'6" 220 lbs)

Sticking to WR for now, here's some other guys Baalke may consider:

- Sammy Watkins, Clemson, 6-1, 200. Ran 4.40. With Hopkins now with the Texans, he should be the #1 WR. Had a minor drug issue (2 game suspension), but seems ok now.

- Mike Evans, Texas A&M, 6-5, 225. Ran 4.59. Manziel's favorite target. Was a redshirt freshman last year, so after the 2013 season, he'll be draft eligible.

- Cody Hoffman, BYU, 6-4, 215. Also ran 4.59. 100 catches, 1250 yds, 11 TD's.

- Brandon Coleman, Rutgers, 6-6, 220. Another 4.59. Only 43 catches, but for 700+ yds and 10 TD's
