    look at like roster:
    QB: 2
    RB: 3
    FB: 1
    OL: 9 - tsmith, FA guy, green, cleary, cooper, collins, martin, looney, tfred
    TE: 4 - witten, rico, swaim, hanna
    WR: 6
    Special team - 3
    DL: 10
    LB: 6
    DB: 10

    Total come out to 54
    We will likely have at least 1 injury - that comes out to 53 already (knock on wood).
    Hanna could well get pup.
    obvious assume no udfa
    brown's potential is interest - could be this year's rico

    I'm not overly enamored with Brown as much as others seem to be. He registered 33 total catches in career and relatively speaking, is a marginal athlete. Equally, I don't understand the hate with Brice Butler. He's quite literally the 5th receiving option on the team behind (Dez, Witten, Beasley and Williams). He's a much better athlete than Brown gives the receiving corp a dimension that isn't provided elsewhere in terms of size and speed.

    I personally like the the variety and depth between Dez, T-Will, Beasley, Switzer and Butler.

    Brown compares athletically to Dez and even had the same college WRs coach. He's raw due to an injury and a lousy QB.

    He doesn't compare athletically to Dez at all. His hieght and weight is similar and that it.

    To me Brown is the big bodied WR project you hope you can mold into a usuable player. He has some traits to work with. PS candidate, a great camp may have them thinking 6 WR. If they go 6 deep somewhere he is probably competing with White for a roster spot. Brown could probably stay on PS all season. With the nature of CB's White is more likey to get poached.

    Outside of JuJu and Switzer, it doesn't seem they were too worried about WR. Next year could be a different story

    I have pretty much the same take. I just think the idea of him beating out Brice Butler is way too premature. Butler seems to be getting the Crayton treatment by some. If Dez or Williams were to go down for an extended period of time, I'll take my chances with Butler all day over Brown to step-in as a starter on the outside.

    Its New Toy Syndrome. You can never expect a player taken that late to beat out a contributor. But because they are new, alot of people expect him to. Andy Jones is just as likely to push them to go long at WR then Brown

    Agreed, but I think this one may be a little different.

    He came out way to early as a sophomore and he clearly has talent.

    The QB at tOSU didn't help him much either.

    There could be something here.

    I didn't disagree with your previous posts about beating out Butler, I actually think you made a pretty good point, but this shows that you don't know the player at all. The combine/pro day numbers are comparable if not better than Dezs. And as much as I hate to reference youtube highlight videos, just watch a couple of Brown, and come back and tell me that he doesn't play similar to Dez. I get the college numbers aren't there, but the raw skills are. He still needs to learn to play WR, but had he not been in such a run heavy offense at Ohio State he could have put up some solid numbers on athleticism alone.

    So true.

    I don't get the Butler hate.

    Our #2 WR's here get no love.

    Being a #2 WR in a Jason Garrett offense is a thankless job. He can barely get the right usage out of his #1 WR so what do you think the #2 is going to be like.

    Yeah, I actually do know the player which is why I'm commenting on him. You happen to disagree with me.

    I think Butler has a problem. Andy Jones appears to have somebody impressed. Noah Brown I see on the reserves.
    If Andy lights up the pre-season games Butler better have one heck of training camp+`

    Put Dez in the slot and either The Bease or Switzer outside. Count on seeing that this year.

    hardly. A Jerry Rice type is a once in a decade player - or greater - you don't need to find that high of a player to be the steal of the draft
