How about no. We have enough tall lenghty skinny guys that run 4.5(s).. Devin Thomas will be the best wr in the draft class.

I wouldn't mind having Limas wearing red and pewter. Limas reminds me of reggie williams or a vincent jackson. decent speed, good hands, athletic. The best case scenario for Limas could be a poor mans Anquan Boldin. Big recevier who is physical after the catch. So what if limas' forty time ain't a 4.3? It didn't stop Boldin from becoming an elite recevier. Sometimes scouts are too enormed by speed, but speed ain't everything.
Big Red Zone target.

So
Sweed- is tall but slow
Jackson- is fast but short
isn't Manningham tall and fast?

You can't compare Sweed to Boldin. Boldin is incredible after the catch, Sweed is just average. Jackson had good speed. Maybe you could make a case for Reggie, but Reggie was talented enough to go top 10 in the most talented draft in the last 10 years. He went over Clayton, he went over Lee Evans, etc. He was a real talent. I wouldn't even put Sweed in the top 3 of this year's lackluster top end receiver class, and thats not even taking into account how little he's played the last year.

Timed speed isn't everything. Separation is. He got about as much separation in college as Maurice Stovall, and plays the same route-running, hands, body control, timed jump game Maurice does. So why do we need him again?

I'd say he compares less favorably to Dewayne Jarrett.

FWIW...Mayock's top 5

1. Mario Manningham Michigan
2. Limas Sweed Texas
3. DeSean Jackson California
4. Malcom Kelly Oklahoma
5. Early Doucet LSU

Don't like Doucet because he's been hurt too much for my liking.
I'm wary of Jackson because of his size. Steve Smith does not come to mind when watching Jackson.

In general I'm tentative about taking WR's in the first round.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

Limas Sweed anyone?

Sounds like a question a waitress would ask.

Limas Sweed? No thanks, gives me gas.
(takes a bow)

Exactly.

There isn't a WR day one (1st and 2nd round) worth drafting in 08 even after the combine results come in.  As of right now scouts are all over the place and there is no clear consenus as to who the top WR's are and it will only be worse after the combine!  The Bucs can find a capable WR /return specialist day two easily and I would dissapointed of the Bucs staff with a knee jerk reponse with the drafting of a WR day one.

Short of Manningham I dont know I would want a receiver at pick 20 in round 1.

I would take Jackson in round 2 if he were still there (which wont happen anyways).

Agree ADW.

I'd be happy with Jackson (Dexter).

Avery will more than likely go higher than he's worth.

Agree. Manningham is the only one I wouldn't scream if he got picked. I'd rather overpay someone like Marty Booker than spend a good pick on a washout.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

maybe in the 2nd round, if at all...but he hopefully will be drafted by that pick

I mean, Desean is smallish, and more of a KR/PR/third wideout kind of guy.  Got talent, but not sure he is the right guy given the BUcs need for an everydown playmaker...

desean was an every down playmaker in college and i'm quite sure if you put him with an NFL strength and conditioning coach he could put on 10-15 lbs w/o losing his speed or quickness.  bottom line, the guy is a burner and is very explosive in space.  i'd like to see what a creative offenisve mind like gruden can cook up for a player with that type of rare quickness and agility.  i hope his stock does dip because people think he is too small.  that will give us another nice option @ 20.
