    I wouldn’t be surprised if they drafted a wr. However, I would be shocked if it happened in the first 3 rounds. It would have to be one of those holy **** how did this future hof’er fall in our laps. A 4-7th round pick at wr is almost a given imo

    My friend their all greedy.Any good ballplayer wants the ball
    ,now if they are team oriented and are happy for team results then you might
    Have something.Cam Heyward would fall into this category.

    i thought we have a high end one, in Johnson? (LOL)
    Pickens might be the best talent in the game.

    no need for a high end WR. Need a balanced offense attack.

    Sign Adam Thielen, or another wily vet - as a slot receiver.

    Austin is the next guy.

    you can only have 3 or 4 play at a time, you know?

    I agree they need a WR but not following the logic. Whoever they draft will be behind the “rookie” on the learning curve.

    They probably won’t do it but signing Thielen would make an immediate impact.

    Disagree… we need OL or it doesnt matter who we have at wr if your qb has no time to pass…also i agree with you we need a wr with speed … in which we might already have with Austin…

    we know, and the only way to win is to stop the other team from scoring.
    The ideal strategy is to win in 2-0 in OT when the other team is forced into the back of the endzone by a sack after renegade plays.

    I will trump all this with 1 player.... Najee Harris.

    It is amazing how much better a QB gets when the running game is working. Did someone say play action pass?

    Hoping for a new LT in April. The key to victory in 2023 will be getting the ground game back in action.

    Drafting a WR who can help you win isn't a wasted draft pick, the offense could use some more big play ability.

    Austin in the slot?? Want to get him killed? I.m looking forward to seeing what he can do, but until he can stay healthy on the field he is just that, hope deferred.

    Well 1st....drafting any player that can help You win isn't a wasted pick...LoL...., but just because We draft a Wr doesn't mean He will help us win.
    If You , and others don't remember last year already....We had 2 Wrs that were mad about not getting the ball enough....now You want to add another.
    Again.....There is only one ball.
    Yes like @strummerfan pointed out....they will probably draft one , but to do so in the 1st 3 rounds with all the actual holes We have is pretty dumb in My opinion...., and as @mikeyg pointed out ....You can only have so many on the field at the same time.

    I hope we still try to get a veteran WR. Thielen, Nelson Agholor someone like that.

    Correct. But the opposing team doesn’t defend the ball, they defend the offensive weapons. Stretch the defense, don’t be obvious with the play design, and points should follow.

    Forget about Pickets toys get some protection get a line on both sides and middle linebacker that can drop into coverage

    Like I have been saying if JSN is there at #32 you take him, the value is too good to pass up, none of the top teams in the AFC has a shutdown defense but you better be able to score.

    And some knucklehead disagreed with you and then followed up with an illogical and incoherent response.

    It is just crazy how much hate there is for Austin playing next year.

    He was having a good camp with the deep passes until his non-contact injury.
