I'd like to get a pulse on how everyone feels about our 6th & 7th round pick's of WR-Tillman Gardner and WR-Keerem Kelly.

Seem to have a wealth of talent, but attitude's and off-field problems make them question marks.

Talman and Kareem both will most likely end up as members of the practice squad or cut. That\'s IMO. I think they have a lot of talent, but with the depth of our receiving corps, I don\'t see them making the team. With Horn, Stallworth, Pathon, The Lewis boys, and possibly Jake Reed, I don\'t see the two rooks making the roster. I do however expect one or both to make the practice squad. Kareem would be my choice.

I kind of felt that we didn\'t have much depth at WR

Pathon is as good possession receiver, but far to often injured because of his slight stature.

Reed is gone, be all accounts I have heard he will not be returning.

Michael Lewis while the best return man in the league, just doesn\'t have the football knowledge to compete for regular time at WR IMO.

Derrick Lewis is a bit of a mystery having spent all but two games last season on the practice squad. However the two games he played in he showed some really good things that should make the coached pay a little more attention to him in camp.

Word from camp is that he has stepped up in the recieving department and has impressed the coaching staff.

I think that spending two draft picks on wide receivers when they really needed defensive players was a very poor choice. they could have gotten someone to replace Grady Jackson.

In the later rounds of the draft, it\'s about picking the best player available, because at those rounds, it\'s a crap shoot. Now had they gone offense in the 1st and 3rd, your argument might be valid.

we\'ll keep em around for a while, probably sending them to nfl europe next year like we did with ojo for a few years before we decided he was crap, however i\'ve heard kelly had a good mini-camp showing
