I would consider him if he were there in the second and there were no other safeties or linebackers that stood out at our pick...he does look like he could be the top receiver we lack, he has size and speed...but definitely not in the first, where he'll probably go. Not because he's not worth a first, but because we have too many other needs and COULD get by with just Brown and Sanders.

if we can also sign Wallace for somewere around the same amount we Signed Brown for then we can draft all defense unless a good TE fell to us. we have a ton of needs with Kiesel, Hampton, Troy, Clark, Harison and Taylor all leaving this season or next. we really cant afford to draft a high rb and wr.
so, actually keeping both Mendy and Wallace is likely? Or, do you think just one of them will go? If so - which one should. I'd take Mendy over Wallace as crazy as that might sound. I think the RB position is a little more dire.

I'm actually liking Ryan Swope from Texas A&M in the 3rd. Say bye to Wallace, go forward with Brown, Sanders, Swope, Tony Clemons and maybe Cotchery or Burress to round out the 5. Healthy Heath Miller and David Paulson can contribute too in the receiving game.

They definately need to draft a wr. I can't believe the Steelers want anything to do with Wallace. My only concerns are that Brown and Sanders were not that great either. This kid in the video does look good

Who does that remind you of?
Antonio Brown?

I personally like him and think we should take him in the second round, but a lot of you guys are getting excited at having a Mike Wallace-type prospect but aren't keen on keeping Wallace around. I need someone to explain that to me.

Mike is a terrible open field runner. If he can make one cut and then straight, he's your guy but when it comes to shiftiness and elusiveness he's nowhere near the talent level of Brown and the kid in the video. What the hell is that kids name anyway?

He's great in the open field. He's fast and can make guys miss. Remember the 10 yard dumpoff that Mike turned into a 51 yard touchdown using just his speed and his ability to make guys miss? That's the kind of talent he brings, but he rarely gets the chance to show it.

I agree that Brown is probably at this point a more reliable receiver, but to call him better might be a bit of a stretch.

His name is a little tough to remember - Cordarrelle Patterson but you can just call him Cordy. Easier to remember.
