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

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


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. 

Plus Boston has a better shot this year and Ike (old reliable) is still good to go. Give Clayton one more year.

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.
I'm a lot more interested in a later round guy like Higgins or Chansi Stuckey than Gonzalez in the 2nd.

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

if we dont draft CJ, then draft paul williams in a later round, and just go all defense, unless we make a huge splash in FA, then maybe a few more picks can be offense

I'm not looking back but when you look to last year draft, look around at the WR's that were on the board as late as R4. You had Brandon Marshall and Colston, both! I don't know what this FO thinks but they better step up their game and pick some people that can actually contribute on this team. You couple in the lost picks to due trades, the cap hell and our utterly pathetic ability to hit any picks on day 2 and here you sit with a pitiful record. We need to pick some people that can contribute outside of round 3. Like Zematis, practically didn't even get on the field with Kelly being down...scary!

Nah there's too much DT talent to waste on a 2nd round WR.  Unless ofcourse by SOMEHOW Dwayne Jerratt falls that far.  Or Ted Ginn.  But I don't see them falling out of the first round.  I am not high on any of the other guys.

Only reason many want CJ is because he seems to be a Larry Fitzgerald type WR and that is hard to pass up.  I mean we already have two young guys in Clayton and Stovall, but as everyone knows the top 3 WRS are important.

Gonzalez will easily run a 4.4 at the combine.   Very underrated WR.

I'll be shocked if he runs 4.39. 
2 weeks ago I bet a friend $10.00 that he won't run a sub 4.4 at the combine.......

I hope he's going to the combine ???

People get too fascinated with many things about WR's but he's been called the best route runner in the draft and that is the #1 thing these guys have to do. When I see a guy described as fundamentally sound as Gonzalez I'm interested. Reminds me of the write-ups about Reggie Wayne - not a physical freak but a guy who knows how to play the position.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Gonzalez is a mix of Reggie Wayne and Kevin Curtis.  The guy can play football and not to mention as a bonus he is blazing fast like his teammate Ginn.

He'll run faster than Wayne who was a solid 4.5 type guy. His skill short and intermediate also fit this offense like a glove. He could be the guy in the offense that Clayton should have been.

Sounds like a Martz type of receiver.

Sounds like a good WR.  But the thing that worries me is his ability to work against press coverage.  In the NFL the DBs will push him off his routes and no matter how good you are at running exact routes, if you can't get by the DB and go where you need to go it won't matter.  I also find it interesting that one of his negatives is he listed as quick versus fast when he is supposed to have 4.39 speed. 

Truths:
1.  Never have an argument with an idiot.  They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with their experience.
2.  For some it would be better if they remained silent and be thought a fool than to speak and erase all doubt.

Team does need wrs who can run routes and catch the damn ball.  Dal offered one of several that I like.  I am terrified of another FL wr just bc our luck has been so terrible with that school. 

All that said and I agree with Rusty - if we can get the lines improved in the draft that is the way to go.  Lines first.  Then the rest.
