    I would like to avoid the need to draft a wide receiver as a high priority in the draft. If we don't sign another receiver, I would expect us to draft a wide receiver early.

    we won a SB without a great WR and now we have 2. Given the state of our defense and its inability to stop anyone on third down, I don't know how you place such a value on a WR. ILB, OLB, S, CB and even DL are all higher priorities in my book.

    The way I see it is we will be drafting a #5 WR with room to grow into a higher spot or we could also use Slater as the #5 WR if he figures his hands out. I don't think we need to sign another WR, but I may be the one of the few who think Lewis will be the #3 next year.

    Not sure who I would pick out of that crew. McCareins would probably fit the role of #3 pretty well though. :confused2:

    with the number of picks we have rd 1-3 I would like to draft a WR late 2 or 3. I think there is room for one and I think Moss is getting up there. We can make the position deeper and develope the talent without the need for him to step right in and in 2 or 3 years when Moss is older or gone he hopefully could start. no dig on Moss as I expet a few great years still but just be proactive.

    We won superbowl is 2 WR and 2 TE formations and so with the signing of chirs baker i have a feeling we will going back to alot more 2WR ,2TE and 1 RB formation more.

    Too bad the Jets need someone to throw to Holt if they get him anyway.

    I think using a late two or three on a WR would be fine. Just remember, we nabbed Branch at # 64 didn't we?

    Even though he is similiar to Welker I would take Mike Furry from that group. With that said I do not see the demand for another WR that others are seeing. I would not complain if they picked up another known Wr but still I would be fine with what we have.

    I think we're done for now after getting that Philly guy. Him, Aiken and a draft choice will likely compete for the 3,4,5 order. I know they aren't great by any stretch but neither was Gaffney. With Moss, Welker and Brady doing their thing that other WR can be, well, Gaffney, and be a decent WR.

    Darius Heyward Bey, Hakeem Nicks, Kenny Britt, Brian Robiskie, to name a few...sorry somebody had to be the wise ass :D

    Seriously though, I will go on record saying I'll be shocked if we do not use a day 1 pick on a wideout. I'll come back to this thread and eat crow.

    Do any of these guys knock your sack back any more than Greg Lewis?

    I'm interested in Joey G, but if Lewis hits the Jugs machine, he's Joey Jr. in the sense of yanking safeties deep down the field.

    Yeah, Galloway is interesting, but maybe Lewis makes him redundant...draft has a lot of interesting guys.

    I like Hackett and Brandon Lloyd.

    McCareins would be a step below those two. He seems to have a frustrating amount of drops.

    I think you are looking for an <$2mm a year type.

    I'd love to see them add Galloway; I don't think the Lewis signing is redundant at all. I'd feel much more comfortable with Galloway starting opposite Moss and Lewis coming in on 4 WR sets and only having to start when Galloway misses the inevitable game due to injury.

    Then draft a rookie as the #5.

    Do you really think a WR who can't block downfield would be a good fit in the Pats offensive scheme? If not, do you think BB would alter the scheme a bit to accomodate a player like Galloway? I think BB would consider him on the cheap, as more of a role player, but I think some other team would take Galloway for more money.

    BB brought him in for a workout, so he must have thought that.

    Who said Galloway can't/won't block?

    The guy is certainly capable (he can bench 415+) and is not a soft player, despite some injury history.
