Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead Nearing 1000 yards

I have to say I'm especially impressed by Brandin Cooks, he has 7 TD's in the last 8 games. He is 7 yards shy of 1000 yards with 2 games to go.

One thing I would say is I think we could use Brandin a little more, the jet sweep we ran in 2014 was very effective and we haven't run at all this season.

Willie Snead, after taking a similar route that Lance Moore, is just 121 yards shy of 1000 and has been stringing some very nice games together.

I would like to see Brandon Coleman get more involved, when he makes a catch he impresses me, the guy has got a talent at breaking tackles and creating YAC.

I'd like to see him get targeted more, which may happen when Colston is no longer around.

I agree but Coleman has to have better hands. Cooks and Snead have great hands.

I don't think WR needs to be a priority this off season.

Re: Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead Nearing 1000 yards

I agree with Riaton that WR doesn't need to be a priority this off-season, but I will say that despite the numbers I still think Cooks would be best suited as a slot receiver. We target him a lot, and that kind of helps his stats. I just don't see where he gets open on the outside, very consistently. So while it's got to be on the back burner right now, I think having a more legitimate number one receiver on the outside, and slotting Cooks inside would help in the future.

I know Snead doesn't have ideal size either, but he gets open more, and Cooks' speed makes him a better fit in the slot than Willie, in my opinion.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I wouldn't mind seeing a TE in the draft. Maybe 4th-5th round. To much more need ahead G, DE, and OLB. Might need a look at T also. But a trade like Graham I'm looking at a TE in the 2nd.

Still waiting on Coleman, but he has improved some?. Need better depth at WR position in general. Replacing Colston might be hard overall.
