    Tavon aside, cause I consider him more of an all purpose weapon and not a pure WR, I'm thinking there are at least 8 WRs better than Givens, Pettis, Bailey, and Quick.

    Waktins
    Evans
    Lee
    Benjamin
    Robinson
    Beckham
    Cooks
    Matthews

    Every time I do one of those mock drafts I see a great WR prospects on the board right up to and including our 2nd round pick. Makes me think twice about taking Watkins with our first pick even in a trade down.

    I think it may be better to get Matthews or Robinson with the first pick and then a WR with the next pick or the one after that.

    I am curious how you have already made your assessment of Bailey?

    I want Waktins, period. And Bailey might end up being good, we'll see.

    I'm just looking at his ceiling. He's 5'10" and not all that fast. I really like him, but he was a 3rd round pick for a reason. He's a tough little guy, but he's physically limited. The guys I listed could all go in the first round or second round.

    How have you measured his ceiling all ready?

    As much as I feel the OL is a greater need; when do we expect to be at the top of the draft to grab a guy like Watkins?

    I might trade down, but Sammy remains in my crosshairs.

    I think too much is made of measurables. He's literally 2 inches shorter than Isaac Bruce and just as "slow."

    Two inches.

    Shouldn't the thread title contain the word "potentially"?

    And quite honestly I dont ever recall Bruce having to use his "height" to his advantage.

    I wish I did. I'll fix it to avoid the diversions.

    You can't edit titles here? Why is that?

    Why do you do that, max? Did I say Bailey is Isaac Bruce? Clearly I'm saying lack of ideal height and speed aren't a detriment to a receiver's career.

    I think Watkins and Evans are hands down the best receivers in the draft..but I don't think Evans is an option, because time and time again whenever snead has been asked about a prospect similar to Evans he always quipped with "We already have a Tall receiver." (quick)

    who knows for sure though.. but i got a feeling watkins is on his board (I probably have to say this is pure speculation before i have people questioning my magic 8 ball skills)

    I was just trying to make a point that this draft was so deep in WRs that we could get one that is probably better than almost anyone on our team now. Then I'm getting the 3rd degree on Bailey. And then you pile on. How about thinking about that.

    I'd use Oaklands 1st round pick in 2015 they traded us.

    I'll go one further by saying Bailey has more of a catching radius. And I can quantify that by saying his arm length is 32 3/4.
    Compare that to someone like Cordarrelle Patterson, whose arm length is an inch shorter.

    Okay.. I wont question you again. Apparently asking how you arrived at a players full potential after seeing him in a handful of plays, is asking too much.

    My apologies.

    I disagree. While you can make educated guesses at players' "ceilings", it's far from definitive. Who would have thunk that a 6'2" WR with 4.59 speed would be BY FAR the greatest WR to ever play the game? Just saying.

    Bailey showed ability this year...hopefully...he continues to improve. We might just have something. Maybe he isn't a #1 but I think he has the ability to be a good #2.
