That's where I was going with this. Thanks for putting it in simple terms for me.

If you are looking for a tall fast reciever in the later rounds..then we could look at Jacoby Jones from Lane College Height: 6-4 Weight: 210 lbs. ..and ran a 4.44 forty.
...some people are comparing him to Colston from the Saints ...and he did well at the East-West Shrine Game..
Lane is a small school but he may be worth a late round pickup based on potential...was named SIAC offensive player of the year and league MVP after leading the conference in receiving yards, all-purpose yards, kick return and punt return average.

I really like this take especially considering Jones will probably be there for the taking in rounds 4-7.

Meachem might fit the bill in 2/3

Later there is also Aaron Fairooz out of Central Arkansas 6-6 215 and runs a 4.54 forty. (Free agent probably) or a Jordan Kent WR Oregon 6-4 210 4.49 ( 5th maybe) But nothing wrong with small school late Lambert. On day two I am open to reaches with talent.

Dont forget that Jeff Samardzija has announced he will pursue a Major League Baseball career...he was ranked as the #4 reciever in this draft...so instead of wasting a 6th or 7th round pick...it may be worth the gamble to draft him and retain his rights...like the Texans did to Drew Henson...(and hopefully pan out better than that pick did!!)

I would be for given up a 7th to own Jeff's rights. But with our late round success at times, I think the FO might be reluctant to go for someone who won't be in camp helping us this upcoming year.

I agree..they probably won't..but SOMEONE will....I personally would take the gamble even though every time I watched him play I kept thinking ...Danny Farmer!!!

I think we would be well served by selecting Jordan Kent on the second day. As i've said before,..... Wilson is a 'guest' and i'm not sold on Nate Washington.

i like that idea. the way weve pissed away late round draft picks lately, this couldnt hurt. not that it would immediately help. does this count as a roster spot? if not go for it.

it does sound like jeff is gonna play out his baseball contract though.
