    have you watched watkins play? a lot of his big yards are bubble screens and short passes that he runs with. a lot of guys are "projecting" watkins to get better at route running and become a deep threat, but he is not a deep threat

    right now, evans is much more of a deep threat than watkins is

    Quick question if Watkins fell to TB at 7 (unlikely) would you consider trading up for him? 12 to 7 isn't as extreme as 12 to 5

    I've been begging for Evans forever

    If you're thinking of this season, then banking on a rookie WR is never a good idea. WR's usually take 2-3 years to really come on.

    I think the team wants to see what RR does in his 3rd year and JJ in his 4th year before they use their top pick on a guy that, through his draft status alone, would likely put both of those guys on the bench.

    Cruz is an 80+catch, 1,200+ yard guy, MM has shown the ability to be a 60+ catch guy and don't forget what he did for this offense in 2010 when everyone else was injured, he's got big play ability.

    Murphy is a Buc.

    he CAN fall to 12

    Although, that would require getting GMs picking from 4-11 drunk the night before and getting them in some compromising positions for us to "take advantage of".......by way of a few pics

    Which is possible

    Cruz will not get those numbers without someone on the outside to draw away a double team. With what the Giants have now Cruz will be double teamed as I don't think teams believe RR is that much of a threat. Even if RR has a decent year, Cruz will not have those numbers without a true #1. MM is old and he is a has-been at this point. Who knows when/if he will actually learn the offense, hes dumb as a box of rocks. Likewise I have no faith in JJ to step up and become a REAL threat.

    Yes, the Giants BADLY need a true #1 WR

    This draft is real deep with receivers as well. Don't need to worry about it unless someone like Evans is there. Than it will be highly interesting if Ebron and/or Donald is available.

    Would rather wait until 2 or 3 for a WR.

    Hard to get a game changer in those rounds though. A quality WR yes, but a game changing #1 with lethal skills and abilities, probably not. Unless the guy was arrested a few times
