I don't know JP but those UT short horn WR's scare me. They just don't create enough separation & we already have one (Jordan H) on the roster.
Like the UT WRs for Round 5 picks, but Collins was really impressing a lot of people at the Senior Bowl; Duvernay was suppose to be the lead dog...

Was curious on that one play where Collins caught the over the shoulder ball who it looked like to y'all...

In truth, Collins would be a work in progress; my hope was Mims would be there in R4 for us, his grade Pre-Senior Bowl, but he's improved his stock...

- Has to be a legit speed guy at WR.
- OG needs to be a mauler. A nasty streak.
- DT needs to be a legit pass rusher. Not a NT or tweener.
- Need both cover and thumper at LB.
- A TE who can excel at blocking or receiving. Both is the impossible dream.
- If a legit RB falls, as they have been lately, it is a need.

We have that player, with some juice, in M. Thomas; we don't have a WR-Z who runs consistent routes, quick acceleration, turbo-boost option, reliable handling, and a go get ball GPS - what we've had is Ted Ginn...

I agree Thomas is alot like Colston but put 2 of them on the field and it would command double teaming one leaving one in single coverage. Would be extreamly hard to cover, not to mention the TE or swing back being thrown to at will. Defensive nightmares all over the field. Also agree about Ginn but not so sure we have to have a burner to have great success.

That's great, but we've got a big receiver already on the roster in Jared Cook who can split the field with Michael Thomas...

What we don't have is a Brandin Cooks/Devery Henderson/Robert Meachem to s-t-r-e-t-c-h the field, Ginn was overpaid for three seasons to do it...

Make Brees' passing target buckets bigger, and, as an added plus, you afford even more YAC opportunities...

We've got to stretch the field...
