If we miss on CJ I like this kid because the things I want my WR to do are run good routes, catch with his hands and show good awareness. Everything else is gravy.

Anthony Gonzalez
WR | (6'0", 195, 4.39) | OHIO STATE

Scouts Grade: 86

Strengths: Drives off the line, changes directions well and is a crisp short-to-intermediate route-runner. Shows good awareness and settles into soft spots when reads zone. Is tough and isn't afraid to go over the middle. Extends arms and catches ball away from frame. Shields defenders from the ball, shows good focus and can make the tough catch in traffic. Has excellent body control and can adjust to passes thrown outside frame. Wastes little motion turning upfield after catches and has good top-end speed. Runs hard, stays balanced and flashes the ability to pick up yards after contact. Uses hands fairly well, plays with a wide base and sustains blocks once in position. Has some experience returning kicks and can contribute on special teams. Steadily progressed at the collegiate level and should continue to improve with experience.

Weaknesses: Frequently worked out of the slot at Ohio State and there is some concern about his ability to get a clean release against press coverage. Doesn't have great bulk and can get pushed around by physical corners. Quicker than fast and doesn't show a second gear when tracking the ball downfield. Lacks ideal elusiveness and isn't much of a home run threat after the catch. Though he has adequate leaping ability, isn't very tall and should have some problems competing for jump balls. Lined up opposite Ted Ginn Jr., who often drew attention away from him, and has yet to prove can be a No. 1 receiver.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
If you think Manziel is the best QB in this draft I can safely assume you are an idiot and will treat you as such.

nfldraftcountdown.com has him going mid-R2. Isn't our 2a pick too high for him?

Those 2nd rounders need to be used on defense. No more day 1 WR's not named Johnson.

Hes a good 3rd rounder. But I rather go defense the rest of the draft.
He thrived off Ted Ginn Jr. Not being racist but white WR's nowadays aren't succesfull in the NFL,exception Drew Bennent.

I like him, but I prefer Dallas BAker. People are sleeping on Dallas Baker


But I dont think the BUcs should draft a WR in the top 2 rounds unless its CJ

I imagine we will be looking at DE at #2a, unless we take Adams in Rd1

Generally speaking, I agree.  But if the team went with defense in the first (either because JT and CJ were both off the boards or because they traded down), a 2nd round wideout wouldn't cause me to go ballistic.  I'm not saying I'd really *want* it, but my keyboard would survive the pick.  So to speak.  ;)

We don't need a WR, unless CJ is there in the 1st.

Not a fan because of the whole opposite Ted Ginn thing.

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

We need WR's, we've got exactly one I'd trust to catch a ball tossed by a QB and he's an aging speed receiver. Clayton, flop. Ike Hilliard/Paris Warren - wastes of space. Maurice Stovall - hopefull but nothing I know for sure. I think we really do need one, I like what Gonzalez brings or this kid later in the draft, 2b


Johnnie Lee Higgins
WR | (5'11", 183, 4.41) | UTEP
Strengths: Possesses adequate height and a very good combination of quickness and speed. An explosive runner with great quick-twitch athleticism. Is a threat after the catch and as a return specialist. Shows outstanding vision to find creases opening up in front of him. Possesses outstanding initial burst and gets to top-speed in a hurry. Also shows a second-gear in the open field to run away from defenders. Can pluck on the run and does a good job of adjusting to the poorly thrown ball. He isn't afraid to go over the middle and he's also fearless in the return game.

Weaknesses: Is lean and lacks ideal strength. Will have trouble getting off of press coverage in the NFL. Also will get lost in traffic too easily. He gets taken out of his routes on occasion. Lacks ideal polish as an intermediate route-runner.

We saw against UF what this guy was all about without Ginn in the lineup - and it wasn't pretty.

There are many other WR I would rather have then this guy, outside of the R1 WR. I'll be shocked if he runs 4.39.  He doesn't look near that fast.  Don't think we should take a WR early outside CJ or MAYBE if a tier 1 WR drops to pick 2a.

I guess he should have blocked better, maybe you missed that he's not an offensive lineman.

We know more about Stovall than we do about anyone in the draft that has never played a snap in the NFL.  Why should we continue to draft guys if we don't know what we already have on the roster.  I'd like to see Stovall and Warren get more PT this year so we can get a clean determination.

I like Gonzalez a lot - I think he's one of the most underrated WRs in this draft. He's probably a tweener for us though - not good enough to take at 2a and too good to take at 2b.

I'm also interested in Paul Williams (fresno state).

And folks - when 2 of your top 3 WRs are in the mid-30s, then drafting a WR is important.
