A receiver for Saints in Round 1?

I would argue WRs not being able to release leaves CBs close enough to jamb up the screen, and gives the defense to more warm bodies at the line of scrimmage to shut down the edge run, letting DTS and LBs focus on the inside run.

No?
O.K. point well taken, now on the flip side of that a run power run game( which is a piece or 2 away) makes the D load the box or play tighter to the box which in return opens up the pass, now with that said our WR and TE need to do their job and get off the line for their routes, and this is also the strength of a traditional TE to put a hurt on LB.'s in the run game and passing game. The WR and at least 1 TE we have are more finess than fight so do we replace them all and go with different players or beef up the line and make the run game open things up? I have no problem with a reciever or TE in the draft as long as they fight.

BPA, even if it is a WR.

If we don't pick a WR in the 1st then let's watch closely for Moncrief. I still don't understand why that guy isn't getting more attention.
Evans looks like he has all of the tools to become a stud WR. If you watch some of college tape at TAM, he uses that big body to out physical defenders. He is already getting the Vincent Jackson type of comparison.

How awesome would it be to have an Evans or Benjamin (after fixing the dropsies) running to a corner in the endzone while Graham heads to the other corner? That would make even Richard Sherman quit talking.

Davante Adams please. He's not as tall as Evans or Benjamin but he's still a redzone threat. Guy has some serious hops.

No doubt, serious hops on Adams ...#17 in blue/gold appears as if his feet are glued shut to the turf (lol)!

Tevin Reese says "dat man can't jump". Actually, Reese had a 41" vertical and Adams a 39.5". #1 and #2 (tied with Bruce Ellington). They can all jump!

No need to replace, PFF ranked Ben Watson in the top 10 for run blocking TEs last season.

Maybe Morgan just isn't that good. Saints dont need a decent wr, they need a number 1 or 2 and Morgan isnt even close.

I dont know why all the love for Morgan as a receiver. I do like him returning kicks though, but thats it.
