WR class 2020

How are we set at WR for the next few years? Yes there's a chance that we walk out with Woods, but there's a better chance that we get a stud in the 1st than finding the next Hill or Mclaurin (I assume you meant) in the mid round picks that we don't have.

Sanders should be able to give us a few (2-3)/ Deebo is a stud. From there we have Kittle at te. Weapons here aren't a problem. I would understand if we took a wr but I don't think it's a priority.

And with few mid round picks is that an argument to trade down and acquire some. Opposed to betting it on 1 player.

If trading down is an option, no question that's what I would want due to our lack of picks. I just think really highly of this WR class and I believe a top notch guy will be there when we pick.

Trade down a couple of times and they'll have a bunch.

Can't dance w/o a partner. Good news is that someone usually wants to secure that 5th-year option by jumping up to pick 32
I know this is the WR prospect thread but.. Man.. Would sure like to find even just a Kittle-like blocker at TE in this class. Even better if we could get another guy who could develop into the monster receiver GK is right now too.

Wait til next year. Pat Freiermuth. We're set at TE til then.

Lets talk about Nico Collins!

Collins is a big-time playmaker who's had the misfortune of having Shea Patterson as his QB the last 2 years. As an NFL prospect, he strikes me as a poor man's Michael Thomas in that he's not going to run away from NFL CBs too often, but he'll find a way to create space and come up with the big catches that win ball games.

OTB I believe Dwelley is that guy, I know he hasn't really been given that many chances to shine yet

Baylor's Denzel Mims doesn't get a lot of love nationally, but he's a big WR (6'3", 215) with a ridiculous catch radius, a natural hands-catcher and a former 200M sprint champion in high school. When I watch Mims I see an even more NFL-ready version of DK Metcalf.

Oh Mims is a beast. This class is so

I don't see the Metcalf-Mims comparison. While both are tall, DK is a lot bigger and stronger, and faster. Mims, tho, has much better hands and body control, and likely runs a 4.45 40 imo.

It wasn't meant to be an exact comparison. When I said a "version of Metcalf," I was referring to a big-bodied WR with an insane catch radius and the kind of deep speed that allows him to run away from a ton of DBs. Mims' hands are definitely more natural than DKs and he's a more mature route-runner than was Metcalf. In other words, they're both bigger, faster and can out-jump 90+% of the DBs they face.

Do they measure up point by point (exact height/weight/speed)? Probably not, but they're similar enough in all the ways that matter, IMO.

Many will disagree, but I think this is only a possibility if Sanders doesn't re-sign. I really feel like Shanahan believes in Pettis, Samuel, and Hurd as the guys to go with Kittle and whomever lines up a RB.

You sure 'bout that?
