Northcutt is a beast... he is on the edge of a break-out year. You can quote me on that. Crowell is also a stud waiting to happen. Pathon, I like but with all these wr\'s... he is out the door. Keep in Mind Northcutt isn\'t coming. Pathon in the 5 WR set... whew

A second is too high, but I still ike Northcutt. I agree that with a small attitude adjustment the guy could be fierce. Given that our receivers are injury prove and weren\'t that impressive last season, this might not be a bad option to investigate.

Thanks for the thoughts.

BnB makes a good point about TO; what about our 5th round pick and the Beer Man for Northcutt (not that anyone would take such a trade)? How much value does a 5th round pick really have?

I\'m still not convinced that a 3rd round pick has that much value compared to a proven player; here is a claim that may be worth investigating - Northcutt is as good or better than anyone we\'ve drafted in the 3rd round in the last 4 years. If someone can show that that claim is false, then I\'ll shut up about this.

BnB, I hope it wasn\'t me you were cheezed with - I agreed that a second rounder was too much. I couldn\'t really tell.

For the record, not that anyone cares, but I think Pathon\'s career is about over. The way he played last year (with the exception of a handful of picture perfect catches), he isn\'t showing much life left.

Jericho Cotchery - Wr.

North Carolina St

Easy 4th round steal if he makes it that far , he may come up the board . No burner , he just catches balls . Seems like he could be a Chrebet kind of player ....

I agree. Could be a damn good steal, but we don\'t have a 4th round pick thanks to Tebucky Jones

Don\'t know that it ever really began. He could be the 4th or 5th receiver this year. He\'s not worth much to me.

That was my point too. It always has been. Proven talent is worth a lot more than draft picks MOST of the time. I dunno about this though. Cie Grant has the ability to prove that statement wrong. Craver was being highly touted by the coaches - he was a 3rd rounder. I think he\'s done though. Time will tell I guess.

WhoDat,

It looks like we favor the same off-season strategy! What is wrong with all these people who, in my opinion, seriously overvalue draft picks?

drafting is a gamble... You can find pro-bowlers in the 7th, granted rare. I think the fact that you can get them young , hungry and cheap for the first few years is the sale here. But even still sometimes its the system the player is in wether he produces like an all-pro or average. So bringing in a vet sometimes isn\'t the answer either.

northcut=3rd wideout at best. maybe a late rounder trade for him, but definitely not a 2nd.
