Posted 30 Jan 2014Richardson tweeted this
Hopefully Richardson uses this as more motivation. He seems like a pretty motivated guy anyways, you can tell he has a passion for the game and wants to be great.
Richardson was much better than Sapp was as a rookie. Interior DL usually take some time to hit their prime. Look at Wilkerson. He had 3 sacks his rookie year, 10.5 in year 3.
Come on guys. Richardson was all we could have asked for and more. We are thrilled with him and his upside is really great. Having said that, comparing him to Sapp is ridiculous. It would have been like comparing Sanchez to Namath after the first year. He certainly exceeded expectations and it is exciting to have him here but let's let his career speak for itself and not try and make him something that he isn't quite yet.
Posted 14 Jan 2014Sammy Watkins, no matter the cost, period.
We won't have any shot at Watkins. He will go in the top 7. As usual, we won the games we were better off losing. But with the 18th pick we have no shot at Manziel or Bortles who would have been my first choice. We should be able to choose from Evans, Ebron, Amaro, Benjamin, Lee. I like the TE route because there are so many WR's this year and we can also buy one in free agency.
We do need a CB, G, OLB, S. We may be able to get 2 of them in free agency if we have $40 million to start with. If we come out with a WR, G and CB in free agency and we can draft a WR, TE, OLB and S we might just surprise teams next year.
That is if Geno can improve his play dramatically which I'm dubious about.
Posted 7 Jan 2014I'm with SHJ on going with best pick available. The FO doesn't need to force any picks. The team can do with upgrades everywhere aside from the d-line.
Agree with SHJ as well. Bad teams draft by position. Good ones take the best available player. With our cap space so good, we should sign our own players who we want to retain (Howard, Folk, Colon, maybe Pace), extend Wilkerson, and use the balance to buy position players we don't get in the draft. Sure would love to buy Jarius Byrd or Grimes/Talib. And we need a guard badly.
Only issue would be if the best on our board when our turn comes is a defensive lineman in which case we look to trade down and if that fails, then and only then possibly skip to the next player on the list who isn't on the defensive line.
Kelvin Benjamin from Fla. St. would be a good addition if Evans and Watkins are off by the time we draft but Ebron, the TE would be huge for us. He is potentially another Vernon Davis.
Posted 13 Dec 2013I think we can be alright w/o the draft. we don't have 2-3 years for one to develop and a lot of good FA WRs are out there. we could grab a guy like maclin or nicks and pair them with holmes (assuming he takes a paycut) plus kerly and hill in the slot and nelson/salas in the 5th and 6 spots.
Don't agree. I do like buying a WR in free agency but still believe we need to draft a stud if possible. Think we should go QB in round 1 if Manziel is available (fat chance). Would even trade up to get him and I never like trading up. Otherwise I like this kid Bortles and Garrapola (East Illinois) but he may come much cheaper in later rounds.
I especially like Mike Evans from A&M and if he is available when we draft we should grab him (again, this assumes Manziel is off the board).
The simple fact is that I have no confidence in Smith. Not saying he can't get much better but I am saying that gambling on him to be the guy and if not, wasting another 3 years after the 4 year waste with Sanchez just doesn't make sense.
If Idzik is true to his word, the competition will bring the best out in both QB's.
