If Richardson is there it's a no brainer - he's a top 10 talent in this draft.

Agreed. I just tried to list as much as I could that would potentially be there when we pick. Guys go up and drop so easily so you never know

I would take Keenan Allen. I'm just not a fan of Richardson.

I have a feeling they will try to move up or move back, totally speculation

I voted for Keenan Allen. I think he is probably one of the better fits in this draft at WR, can start right away and at pick 23 he is good value.

I dont see the point in drafting Sheldon Richardson. If Kevin Williams returns (which seems likely), with Christian Ballard behind him, why have a first rd pick serve as the third team DT opening day. You dont spend first rd picks on developmental third string players. Williams has never played the one technique spot and Richardson is a poor fit there.

I understand the desire to get younger, but why does Ballard get written off so much. It will be year three for him, and similar to most DTs, that seems to be when they start putting it together.

I wouldn't mind Allen but rumor has it that Keenan Allen is failing to separate in pre-combine workouts and "doesn't look like anything special" according to an nfl insider. My vote went to Hopkins. I just look at him as the most nfl ready along with patterson

I have to say Manti Te'o. I feel he's a top 10 talent and with Rudolph, Harrison, and Blanton in the locker room to help him fit in. Plus Speilman loves the Golden Domers, it just feels right.

And I agree on not drafting a DT in the first. We have Fred Evans too. We have to find an instant starter with this pick and I think our best option is easily WR

This is to be expected. Allen isnt one of those players who will rise based on working out and the combine. He is a gamer in my opinion, just a good overall football player. I would be more concerned if he was 6-0 or so, but he has very nice length to him and that will certainly help him in creating separation down field. I always worry about short possession type receivers (like Justin Blackmon for one last year) and being able to get open at the next level.

Allen has the the prototypical size. The 40 time may as well me thrown out the window for him. What I will be interested in seeing is how well he runs the shuttle and 3 cone. Those two drills will be most telling in terms of how much quickness he has. Allen has great length and if he shows good quickness, that is more than enough for me to be comfortable in thinking he can get open at the next level. The hands, route running and football skills all seem to be there.

Hypothetically, if the team did draft a DT i would probably take Shariff Floyd, Kawann Short and Sylvester Williams over Sheldon Richardson at this point. I would trust Floyd, Short or Williams to man the one technique spot, the more pressing need, than Richardson.

Agreed. What do u think of Hopkins? He is my #1 choice here. Scouts say him and Patterson seem to be the most nfl ready. I gotta agree. I see a lot of Sidney rice in him when it comes to catching the deep ball. However I think he can make an immediate impact...rice needed a good QB to make him look any good.
