    There has been a lot of good talk about the WR's in this years draft, and I thought it might be nice to get a thread going where people can rank their favorite WR's and what round you think they will/should go.

    I am going to omit from mine Patterson and Austin because I just don't believe the Patriots have a chance to get them.

    1. Keenan Allen (late 1st)

    2. DeAndre Hopkins (late 1st, early 2nd)

    3. Quinton Patton ( second, probably have to trade up)

    4. Markus Wheaton (2nd)

    5. Stedman Bailey (3rd)

    6. Da'Rick Rodgers (3rd/4th)

    7. Aaron Dobson (4th)

    1 - Tavon Austin (the next Percy Harvin)
    2 - DeAndre Hopkins
    3 - Cordarelle Patterson
    4 - Robert Woods
    5 - Terrance Williams
    6 - Quinton Patton
    7 - Markus Wheaton
    8 - Aaron Dobson
    9 - Ryan Swope
    10 - Stedman Bailey

    Ideally - I would like to see the Pats get Terrance Williams in the 2nd round. He would be a solid addition to the Pats vertical game.

    I prefer to look at them by specific type of WR because I think they really are different positions.

    X Receivers

    1. DeAndre Hopkins
    2. Quinton Patton
    3. Da'Rick Rogers
    4. Terrence Williams
    5. Marquess Wilson
    6. Aaron Dobson (wasn't impressed)


    Z Receivers

    1. Justin Hunter
    2. Markus Wheaton
    3. Robert Woods
    4. Terrence Williams


    Y Receivers

    1. Keenan Allen
    2. Robert Woods
    3. Stedman Bailey
    4. Tavon Austin
    5. Ryan Swope

    I think we definitely need 1 X reciever and another outside guy (either X or Z) in the first 3 rounds. I don't have any interest in a Y receiver before the late 3rd. Unfortunately I think we will probably take a tweener guy like Kenny Stills instead of a legitimate outside guy.

    1. Markus Wheaton

    2. Markus Wheaton

    3. Markus Wheaton

    4. :D


    Or more seriously:


    1. Markus Wheaton

    2. DeAndre Hopkins

    3. Robert Woods

    4. Quinton Patton

    5. Chris Harper

    6. Marquess Wilson

    7. Courtney Gardner


    There are others I'd be fine with, but these are the ones I think give us the type of upside we need.

    Excluding Austin & Patterson,

    DeAndre Hopkins
    Markus Wheaton
    Quinton Patton
    are the WRs in whom I would invest our first pick.

    Keenan Allen
    Robert Woods
    Justin Hunter
    are those in whom I would invest our second pick.

    Aaron Dobson
    Terrance Williams
    Da'Rick Rogers
    are those in whom I would invest our third pick.

    In order of absolute preference.

    Split end:
    Keenan Allen
    De'Andre Hopkins
    Da'Rick Rogers
    Chris Harper

    Flanker:
    Quinton Patton
    Markus Wheaton
    Robert Woods
    Justin Hunter

    I don't want any part of a slot receiver in the early rounds.

    Great list. I really think an X type is our biggest need, too. We already have A Hernandez who is capable of playing the Z spot. I'm warming up to DeAndre Hopkins more and more lately but I still think I like Patton the best. If an X wasn't such a big need I'd be gushing about Robert Woods or Markus Wheaton.

    Someone on this board (I believe it was manxman) has me warming up to DeAndre Hopkins now that I'm looking at him as more of an Anquan Boldin type WR. I still think a guy like Robert Woods is more cerebral though and would be a better fit in our offense.

    1. Robert Woods
    2. DeAndre Hopkins
    3. Markus Wheaton

    4. Tavarres King - seems to plays faster than the timed speed (4.47). Runs all the routes and gets wide open. Not just a deep threat.

    I either want guys who can really stretch the field with speed or a big bodied receiver who works the outside. For that reason, I don't like Robert Woods as he seems to do his best work in the slot and doesn't seem to be fast enough at his size. I'm going to ignore off field aspects as, frankly I don't know enough about them, and I'll leave the Patriots to decide what is and isn't an issue.

    1. Markus Wheaton - would fit the offense perfectly in a sort of Deion Branch role but with greater long speed.
    2. Da'rick Rogers - an absolute beast and fearless across the middle/going up for the ball. could be our Julio Jones. Really like his play
    3. DeAndre Hopkins - similar to above but not quite as athletic.
    4. Justin Hunter - his measurables make me intrigued but concerned by his drops.

    Like Stedman Bailey, Terrance Williams too.

    The X factor, who no one is mentioning is Marquise Goodwin - we havent had any contact but he has game changing speed. If we lose Jeff Demps, he could be an option for some special packages and on STs, while we work him into a more polished receiver.

    Good scouting by the Pat's staff, wouldn't mind taking a shot at this guy if we wind up trading down for extra picks, maybe worth a 5th round pick.

    I'd like to add Aaron Dobson to my list. Mostly as a 3rd rounder, big body WR project I think.

    Yup; where's the love for Goodwin? If Al Davis was still alive he would not let a 4.27 guy escape the first round but I suspect Goodwin will go in the second or third; there is more to being a WR than straight speed of course and he did not get a lot of passes. However he has some versatility; I watched the tape and he is an outstanding cutback runner. He would be a scary deep threat and return guy also. A great pickup in the third or fouth if he makes it that far.

    I might be a long lost Al Davis relative, because speed always catches my eye as well. I'd love to see the Pats go for Goodwin (late round, no higher than 5 th). I'm a huge Tavov Austin fan, he'd help the Pats in so many ways (explosiveness as a receiver and return man). We really don't have any explosively fast guys on the roster, I don't count Demps because in my mind, he's as good as gone.

    I watched some Kenny Stills videos and he has a nice combination of speed and hands. He seems to have a nose for the endzone and is able make the nice grab on the edge. His DUI might push him down into a lower round where the Patriots could grab him (I am SURE the Patriots will be picking more than one WR). He did not seem to blow by CBs inspite of his Combine 40.

    I like Stills. Watch the video of him on the NFL Network where he answers some questions. Seems to have a level head (not making fun of his haircut). A very well spoken young man who doesn't hide from his mistakes, and is honest enough to discuss his weaknesses (on and off the field). Came away from the interview liking the guy, seems very mature.
