Im wondering if they could draft 3 rookie WR?
Cooks or Beckham (1st)
Too much, or infusion of talent from a deep WR pool?
I don't think drafting 3 receivers is excessive IF one of them can replace Osgood on special teams and bring more as a receiver. If they cannot, then there is no reason, unless it's someone that is going to be redshirted, and no one fits that description (injured) to the best of my knowledge. The other reason would be if the team thinks they won't be able to retain Crabtree. It would be great if they at least began negotiating with him to at least gauge what his demands are.
In terms of receivers, I am hoping for one from each list.
Jordan Matthews (1st/2nd) Odell Beckham (1st)
Jarvis Landry (2nd) Robert Herron (3rd)
Donte Moncrief (2nd) Dri Archer- A RB, but I think we can play him at receiver (3rd-5th)
Jeff Janis (5th)
I also am not big on trading LaMichael James, however, if we can net a 4th round pick for him, I think Dri Archer would be a great replacement and we can still realistically draft two others receivers.
We would have a replacement for Boldin in list A (I haven't ruled out Patton replacing Boldin either) and a true deep threat from list B. If we can hit on those two picks and still snag Archer, we will be set at that position.
