    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread



    The more i see and here about Wheaton the more i like, i think he could be a bonafide #2 nex to Torrey once Boldin calls it quits. What round do you guys think he goes in?

    I have been high on Wheaton pretty much all season. Really nice precise route runner, solid hands, deceptively quick, nice moves in space.

    He needs to put on some weight...he's about 6' to 6'1" and about 185lbs, so I'd like to see him bump up into the 190's. I think that would help him beat press coverage a bit better. Still though, the upside is there.

    I'd rather have Patton, but Wheaton would be pretty sweet too.

    Hey GOTA, your boy Louis Murphy is a free agent.

    I'd be interested in a look-see for him. Cheap, nice size, deep threat receiver.

    +1.

    Only 25 and will be cheap.

    That guy can fly too. He did alright in Oakland with crap QB play.

    I'm not saying he'd be the next coming of Jerry Rice on the Ravens squad, but if the Ravens do part ways with Jacoby Jones, Murphy would be a good candidate to replace what Jacoby brought to the table (as a receiver, not as a return specialist).

    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread

    While we're talking about wide receivers... a guy who could potentially fall a little if he doesn't test well at the Combine is DeAndre Hopkins.

    He's in the 1st round in a lot of mocks... but some workout warrior types could easily leapfrog him as I think he'll be unimpressive at the Combine (6'0, 190, probably only a 4.5 type guy) and he's only a junior so he's not getting any press from all-star games right now. That could send him down into the 2nd.

    I'm not SUPER interested in the 1st unless all the better targets are gone, but Hopkins is a GREAT player. Check out some of his tape http://draftbreakdown.com/players/deandre-hopkins

    I think he will test well enough.

    He is a solid receiver though. His game is very similar to Reggie Wayne.

    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread

    I'd say Hopkins is a pretty complete WR, with some speed, elusiveness and athleticism to go with it. I don't know what he'll time in the 40, but if he times slow, I can say for sure that he plays fast. On TV he looks like a legit 4.4 guy even if that's not his actual 40. Definitely IMO a guy who can contribute from the get-go. With some upside.

    Reggie Wayne is a good comparison. Hard for folks to remember now, but he was very similar to Hopkins back when he was in college at Miami -- a very dynamic, game breaking type WR. He really got shunted into a "solid #2 receiver" role opposite Harrison in Indy once he got to the pros. Basically used the threat of his athletic ability to get open underneath and move the chains reliably, when in fact, in a different sysem he could have been a #1 with a 17+ ypc and regular double digit TDs. He was the John Taylor to Harrison's Rice, if you will.

    Like Hopkins, Wayne was extremely dangerous in college (I thought he was more a threat than the much more touted, at the time, Santana Moss).

    Wayne's career path is a very good comparison for Hopkins, I would say. Frankly there are teams who will take worse players in the first than him. That said, does he make sense for the Ravens there? Not likely, based on other positional needs and priorities (as I currently expect them to shake out). He is a safe pick though. He will have a good career. If the Ravens do, or have to, go WR early, he would be a fine pick.

    Great value with Wheaton in the bottom half of the 3rd. Based on my limited feel of the other 31 teams, he's my 12th WR.
    Based upon the kind of WR that I think we could use, Wheaton is my 4th WR behind Patton, Bailey and Austin. He's ahead of Bumphis.

    Senior Bowl weigh-in:

    Markus Wheaton 5' 11", 183 lbs.
    Quinton Patton 6' 0", 202 lbs.

    I think both go in the 2nd round.

    thats about right. I still think Ertz and Eifert makes the most sense in the first round.

    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread

    Anyone thought of the possibility of signing Rolando McClain? He is likely to be cut before FA, and Ozzie may take a look see because of the Bama connection. He hasn't really lived up to his pre draft hype, but he's still a solid player, especially in run defense. He make up for a decent tandem next to Ellerbe (assuming Ellerbe is re-signed), or if we move to a 4-3, he can play MLB there too.

    If he is interested in playing football and knocking the shenanigans off, then absolutely.

    Lots of due diligence would be involved, but certainly he's got to be on the radar. Curious whether he goes though. During the season there was some kind of flare up with him and there was lots of conjecture he would be cut right then and there. Never happened.

    If he gets cut, great, but I think they'll bend over backwards not to let that pick go to waste.
