Was benched and injured last season after a decent 2015.

#3 WR at best.

He's here to replace Eddie Royal. I'm fine with that.

Won't replace Alshon obviously but this is an underrated signing. Wheaton has some decent upside and good speed.

According to Albright signing Wheaton took us out of the running for Pryor.

Deeeeeep class of wide receivers coming out this year. I don't know that there are any huge stars, but lots of guys who can ball.

This deep class arguement is getting interesting.

How many picks do people think we have,

Don't worry it is a deep class at CB

Don't worry if is a deep class at safety

Don't worry it is a deep class at WR

Don't worry it is a deep class at TE

And we need to draft a QB at some point this year

Sounds like you just planned out our first 5 picks Windy.

1. QB
2. CB
3. WE
4. S
5. TE

And like you said, let's hope they can all start.

Love the pick up, literally because any time he drops a pass I can yell "Wheatooooon!!"

I see it more like:

1. S
2. CB
3. QB
4. WR
4. OLB
5. RB

Hopefully, it means that as the draft goes along into the lower rounds we can find a quality pick for each of the positions if need be. One good upgrade at each position (highly unlikely) would put us into a playoff level roster situation outside of the QB.

I hope this includes a trade back in the first, because unless he's the best safety to ever play the game, he's not deserving of the 3rd overall pick.

Every fiber of my being agrees with you... I just worry that's the move Pace is going to make.

Although... turns out Jonathan Allen is making a pre-draft visit with us
