With a "OUTSTANDING" WR class this year. I thought it would interesting
to see your list. This is my ranking and could see the Packers taking 2 wideouts if G.J. & D.D. leave. I'm sure this list will change after combine
& pro days.

1- Robert Woods
2- Tavon Austin
3- Stedman Bailey
4- De Anrde Hopkins
5- Markus Wheaton
6- Quinton Patton
7- Da'Rick Rogers
8- Aaron Dobson
9- Denard Robinson
10-Marquise Goodwin

I don't think there is a WR that "fits our system" you've got guys like Jordy Nelson and like Randall Cobb who both flourish here, TT loves receivers that run good routes and catch with their hands. He also like versatile guys that can line up out wide and in the slot, but its not like if you're 6'3 you are too big or at 5'9 you are too small, we don't really have "system" WR's.

I actually have to agree with this. The better WR's IMHO are in the mid to latter rounds and I suspect we will approach that position in this draft as such.

It's bad at the top, but really good rounds 2-4 which is where we need it to be good.

Everybody loves WR's with good hands and runs good routes no matter the system. The place wherw guys fit with us is their RAC skills, that's easy to see with Cobb and Jennings for sure and it's easy to see with Austin and Woods, so there are guys who fit better than others.

i'm really big on robert woods and think he offers the biggest return for where he will likely be drafted. anyone else agree?

Where is the depth? Don't see it.
Pack like smart receivers. That's why Jones has struggled till this year when they said just run the sideline and hang on to the ball.
When Ted drafts two in one draft the 2nd one is usually the speed receiver.

Austin is too light, don't want him at all. 69"172#
Woods - shoulder, concussion, ankle, anything else?

Bailey, Hopkins, Allen, Rogers.

Shocked

You don't have a big name guy like AJ Green and what not, but this year's receiving class is super deep...

I agree. Some posts you just have to pretend you did not see. I find it helps a lot.

I want to like him but two things worry me with him. One is his hands. Two is his ability to pick up our playbook. I've heard a few times now, scouts are unsure if he can digest a complex playbook. I would have to imagine ours isn't all that easy. If I didn't have those qualms he'd be right behind Allen.

Ours is one of the hardest in the league to adjust to. Usually takes receivers a few years until they excel.

This year reminds me of 2008.
If we pick WR in the 2nd, we'd be lucky to get production and quality person like Jordy.

If we pick late we get a Brett Swain. Pack nation gets all excited about, and 4 years later the guy had 8 catches in his career.
