What's the status on that Penn State WR, Robinson? Latest I'm reading is that the mock experts think we'll see somewhere between 5 and 8 WRs go in the 1st round alone.
I tend to agree with this after changing my thoughts on a 1st rd WR.
We have a nice history of picking up solid WR's in later rounds.
We definitely have to reload on defense and no time like the present to do it.
I think Bell is going to be a bigger force this year than last.
Especially if we don't sub in Felix every few series.
A healthy offense in 2014 with Wheaton taking over for Sanders is not too shabby IMO.
