    Does any body know of some Antonio Brown type wr's in this years draft. as much as i like what Robinson did season i think what this offense needs is an expolsive slot threat. just wanted to gets some names to make the research a little easier.

    Slot receiver is not a must unless he is an explosive returner also. In most of our 3 or 4 WR sets miles moves into the slot because he is big fast and can run after the catch. Unless a Wes Welker is available very late I would look at UDFA.

    Have we already given up on Harris? I still think he has a future as a contributing WR on this team.

    Joe Adams, WR (No. 3) -- Adams is not as fast as Wright, nor as productive, but proved to be a devastating return specialist. His average of 16.3 yards on 16 punt returns looks even more impressive considering three were brought back for scores. Adams is another prospective slot receiver whose bread and butter will be made on special teams. 4th Round

    This guy is amazing in the open field. Still, dont think we can use 4th round pick on a return specialist who likely wont contribute on offense barring multiple injuries.

    Hey bro i said antonio brown type aka 1st in history to have 1000 rec and also return yards in a season. and i know it's not a need thats i was looking for a late round (5-7) who fits the mold. and by the way really like adams even though he goes to arkansas just wish he was faster.

    He's not a "slot" receiver, but I think we can line up Onterio McCalebb there, and give him some snaps in the running game or have him catching passes out of the back field. And he'll help out in the return game (most likely in KOs).

    Not sure if he's coming out tho. He may want to return for his senior year to improve his stock, but w/ Dyer ahead of him, not sure how much he'll be able to.

    He'll need to bulk up, but a speedster worth keeping an eye on.

    Wouldn't touch Owusu. He's one concussion away from becoming a vegetable. For his own personal health, I hope he takes his Stanford degree and excel at something else.
