I admire Bourne's rise from a UDFA, but they drafted two WRs that should be able to do everything he does and more.

Agree. It's hard for me to see 7 WRs on the 53. Not when they have 4 RBs that could deserve to be on the 53 (Coleman, Breida, Jet, Mostert; five if we count Juice). That's just too many skill position players. Out of Bourne, James, and Matthews, two of them won't make it. Just my pre-preseason prediction.

If they keep 7, three won't dress on gameday? That seems like a wasted roster spot that can be used for depth elsewhere.

I think they would only keep 7 if they could put 6 on game day. For instance if McKinnon for some reason starts the season on IR, they could carry only 3 RB's on game day.

Pettis, Deebo, Goodwin, Bourne, and Richie James

That definitely isn't happening. The team isn't going to cut a guy they invested a third-round pick in. He also won't make it to the practice squad. Once the league finds out he's cut, he'll immediately get claimed by other teams.

Hopefully he brings it during the preseason. Richie James is a playmaker, and Bourne is a guy that Shanny has invested a lot into. He's having a great camp. I can see Hurd making it on the active squad over James if he shows something during preseason. I don't think they'll give up on Bourne

Trent Taylor needs to go.

Trent Taylor needs to go? By most reports, he's been the most impressive WR in camp. He's a lock.

He couldn't get open last year. Had some key drops. Isn't fast. Isn't big. We have some competition this year. I've seen him get locked down in camp by a backup linebacker.

people gave him a pass around here cuz of his back.. all i can say is that time will tell if that was indeed the case or as you said. he may have been a one year wonder. in a earlier thread people the rosey posey guys rolled out the barrel because a poster allegedly saw our injured center running around with no indication of a knee issue.. so i think the same people need to take your observation seriously of taylor. we had the most underwhelming group of wide outs in the nfl last year in my opinion. gotta get it right with those guys this year. even if he means getting rid of some favorite players

and its not the last 5 games of 2017 anymore either which is what many posters use to justify taylor being on this team

it's GOODWIN who needs to GO !!!

he's really not needed.. we have Deevah to do what Good was brought in here for.. now, we have the cheaper James and Taylor to run the slot, both have better hands than Goodwin...

PLUS, it's simple Math... we can get more for Goodwin at the moment, than prolly WRs we're trying to keep.

lol There is no way they are keeping 2 PS squad guys over a 3rd round pick.

They'll cut Matthews and trade one of Bourne or James for either OL or LB depth.

i always said. goodwin is one hit away from being a potato and i question his commitment..to me.. if our two rookies and mathews made the roster and we dumped three guys from last year. no matter who they are. that would be fine with me
