The difference between FS and SS is not as big as suggested when schemed accordingly.

    Honestly, the value of any of the 3 suggested WR's is downright frightful in a draft so stacked at WR.
    eh, I've seen plenty of questions surrounding guys like Barr and tuitt. And if the line between SS and FS isn't an issue, why did Ozzie specifically mention adding a more athletic S? Why would he draft an Elam clone? We had two box S's last year and at times it was an issue. The 3 WRs are usually ranked mid to late first rd on most big boards. I see their value as accurate.

    Pryor is significantly more athletic then Ihedigbo.

    If a gun is to the noggin, then its Beckham. The player with the highest ceiling is Lee, but Beckham is just safer. I'm honestly not considering Martin at 17, maybe 20 and down.

    Not only that, but I don't think any of these players put Marlon in street clothes on Sunday, so if they don't play ST's, then THEY are in street clothes on Sunday... So to me, that rules Lee out at any point in the first round. Beckham, to me has a bit more ST's upside(then cooks), so he'd be my choice, but a gun would literally have to be to my head.

    Oh I'd probably just take a different player, surely another good player would be available at that point that I like better. Oh, if I had a gun to my head? Well I know Karate so I'd just turn the gun back on him. Oh, you just want me to pick a damn receiver I like out of the three? Well I'd rather just be a poor sport. So nyah.

    Out of those 3 I'd take Lee in a heartbeat

    I have faith that Bobby Engram will get the best out of whoever we take and having a vet like Steve Smith on the team to learn from is just a bonus

    Beckham is the safe pick and the one I wouldve taken if we still had our old offensive staff.Those guys were horrible at developing receivers but like i said i have faith in the new guys so you take the WR with the highest ceiling and thats Lee hands down

    A lot of people are down on beckham because he ran slow at the combine. 4.6? But watching his tape, he definetly plays a lot faster. I do not hold much stock in the 40 anyway. So much of it is based off of learning how to come out of a sprinters stance. Proper technique can shave hundreds of seconds off which people fall in love with. Beckham is a playmaker with great hands above average game speed and good quick twitch to him. I would take him at 17 in this scenario. Personally I think he's going to end up being the best reciever from this draft class

    Beckham ran in the 4.3's at the combine.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I take Lee, I guess. Before the injuries he was great. Even dealing with the injuries (which are the main reason drafting him worries me) he played very well.

    Sort of a downer at 17 though.

    I don't really see where Beckham dominated a good team. I am purely looking at boxscores without context....but where did he light up a top program?

    Might be thinking abut Landry here.

    Speaking of WRs, we have maintained a ton of interest in Martavis Bryant since the Combine. Bryant was the "other" Clemson wide receiver. Good size/speed combo.
