    I didn't particularly want a WR.

    I guess we project to:


    Moss
    Holt
    Edelman
    Tate
    Price

    Aiken (for STs)
    Slater (ditto, but his job is threatened by the other strong ST guys)
    Stanbach (but his job is generally very threatened)

    plus Welker on PUP.

    That's a bunch.

    He started strong during Senior Bowl week, and faded away as the week went on, in the game he disappeared. 4.4 speed, good change of direction, reportedly his hands and routes are okay. I'm hoping for another WR in this draft.

    Taylor Price
    Height: 6-0⅜ | Weight: 204 | 40-Time: 4.41

    Official Bio

    Strengths:
    Good height and bulk --- Smooth and athletic --- Excellent speed and acceleration with a burst --- Vertical threat who can separate --- Great ball skills and body control --- Terrific leaper --- Good strength --- Tough and not afraid to work across the middle --- Nice awareness --- Has a lot of confidence --- Mature --- Superb Work Ethic --- Durable --- Upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Does not have natural hands --- Marginal quickness and agility --- Not much wiggle and won't make people miss --- Still very raw as a route runner --- Limited experience as a return man --- Can be more physical and aggressive --- Isn't much of a blocker --- Just average production.

    Notes:
    Was a three-year starter for the Bobcats --- Named 2nd Team All-MAC in 2009 --- Averaged 17.9 yards with 0 touchdowns on 10 career kick returns and did not return a punt in college --- Was underutilized and never got consistent play from the quarterback position, which at least partially explains his lack of eye-popping statistics --- Earned positive reviews from many for his performance at the Senior Bowl --- Is straight-linish and plays a finesse game --- A classic "Workout Warrior" who will most likely be selected earlier than he should be due to that rare blend of size and speed but he doesn't always play up to those impressive physical tools --- May be a poor-man's Darrius Heyward-Bey.

    I think it was just the right spot for a WR.

    I also thought that Moss, Holt, Edelman and Tate plus whoever, were fine while we waited on Welker and then as good as we've ever had.
    Now Price can be added to the mix, and also be part of the future as Moss and Holt age.
    Seems like the right pick for the right cost walking into a good situation where he has a chance to really contribute but it isnt a disaster if he isnt ready yet.
    Plus we added a good receiving TE to the group which will help.

    On paper it seems like an ok choice... I would have much prefered to have seen them take a wr (Dez Bryant) who can truly make a difference than a guy whose ceiling seems to be a #2 wr.

    With WR being such a big weakness I would have taken Bryant with the first pick. I didn't love their first rnd pick.

    Already this seems to be an improvement over Aiken / Stanbach.

    Here's the write up from CBS/Draftscout, sounds like good hands and route running
    Taylor Price, Ohio, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com

    Hands: Reliable receiver who extends to able to catch the ball away from his frame. Adjusts to high, low, and wide throws well, and can make the exceptional catch. Brings in passes over either shoulder, even when contested. Excellent body control over the middle and on the sidelines.

    Route running: Sharp and sudden route-runner; sinks his hips and accelerates out of the cut. Solid comebacks and outs, presses corner and stops quickly to complete the route. Sells routes on the run with foot work and body language to get corner off balance. Must work harder to get open when his quarterback is in trouble.

    Roadkill is an improvement over Aiken/Slater/Stanbach

    He's 75 on Gossselin's list, ahead of Andre Roberts at 81. That's good enough for me.

    Whatever is less than roadkill is an improvement over Aiken/Slater/Stanback, it really couldn't get any worse than that trio. I do like the pick of Price though, I think he will be a good player.

    Kinda liked Mardy Gilyard more, seems like another guy the Pats will try to be a deep threat, how have those worked out?
    see Johnson, Bethel
    and

    But this guy came cheaper.

    Seems like a good value, as Andy suggested. I hope he grows on me. ;)
