Woods?

No. Definitely not Woods. Not even the best WR on his own team.

To be fair, Lee is a complete stud and may be in the same class as AJ Green.

Yep.

I say we wait for Watkins or Lee next year.

If we win 8-10 games next year -- not a lock by any means -- what do you think the chances are that either Watkins or Lee will be around when we pick? You simply can't wait a year hoping for one or two specific guys.... guys who might likely be long gone by the time we pick.

And as for Woods not being the best WR on his own team, come on, you know that's completely misleading.... one team can have two first round picks on it... it's no shame not being as good as Marquees Lee. I'm not sure yet if I even want Lee, but I wouldn't write him off because of Lee. I'd be much more concerned about his health. He's been playing with a bad ankle for two years now. His medical report from the combine is going to be one of the more highly anticipated reports to come out of Indy.

Yeah... I don't think I'd be too upset if we picked him up, would rather pick up some defensive help, but Luck to Woods has a nice ring to it.

I'd rather get a WR later and a bigger one at that like

Jordan Matthews

Aaron Dobson

Emory Blake

Dan Buckner

We need a WR that can go up and get the ball, Grigson and Arians has shown an infatuation with much smaller speedy wr's though but donw in the Red Zone you need size

there are bigger needs on the team then wr and woods stock is falling,hes more likely to go in the 2nd. now if justin hunter falls to us it's gonna be hard to pass up because of his size and speed.

Hunter is the only WR in the first round I would even think for a second in taking. If we to get one this year Patterson or Rogers could possibly be there in the third.

Reggie Wayne wasn't considered the best WR on Miami when he played. Santana Moss got all the accolades and we all saw how that worked out.

No, Moss was overdrafted because of his speed, Reggie had better stats.

If Marqise Lee comes out in 2014, I would not mind him then.

If we just want a slot guy that runs good routes, we can go get Danny Amendola in free agency or Stedman Bailey in round 3 in the draft to replace Collie. But with the limited number of picks and enough offensive weapons drafted in the previous one, defense and O-line depth is all I would like us draft.

Woods will be a far better NFL receiver than Lee. Better hands, routes and blocking. Woods is a faster Marvin Harrison. That said, I don't want a receiver in the first.

I'd like to take a look at Marquess Wilson if he enters the draft. Not till late in the draft though.

Lee has had his sucess do alot to his speed. Woods is more polished and when fully healthy stll pretty fast. Lee is grat but its his speed that really gets him alot of his stats. And Watkins next year is not vonna happen. Well probably be pick too too low. I Want defense in the first though.

He's obviously not on the same level right now. I meant he has the same characteristics with a bit more speed.

Let's be honest here. Woods, as great of a receiver as he is, has almost no upside. He's at the peak of his growth as a receiver. He's a pretty polished route runner, has good hands and average speed. He's probably gonna go in the 1st round. Is he a player with great value? NO! The best value of any WR is probably Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech. 6'2, 205 pounds. 4.45 speed, with great route running skills. Only thing he has to work on is his hands. Other than that, the man is a beast. Probably gonna go around 4th or 5th round, so he would really be a great pick up for the Colts. NFL.com compared him to Reggie Wayne.

    • It makes no difference to me, other than stuff to laugh at.  I was doing the same thing last year when they picked the Colts to go to the Superbowl.  I knew they weren't ready, I just didn't expect Luck to go down.  All this nonsense is just to fill time on a 24-hour NFL Network.  They have to talk about SOMETHING.  Has NO effect on the playing field whatsoever.
    • Yeah, my wife would agree with you. She wants to move to Gulf Shores Alabama. We vacation there from time to time. 
    • I am not sure Whitner would be beaten out by Geathers... Whitner has a solid career of playing at a high level.. Geathers has been a fill in and for me was our biggest single question mark in the secondary this year;  We'd be MUCH improved with Whitner on board and let the best player start.  I wouldn't count Whitner out on that battle.  
    • Fact: Castonzo was lousy last year by his own admission.   Fact: We have a rookie Center who hasn't had a single live practice yet.  How often do people talk about the reality that you can't really learn much from OTA's and No Pad Practices?  Fact: We had Reitz last year as well as Mewhort (one of my favorite players) but the line was still lousy anyway. Fact: Thornton has not performed to date and is injury prone.  And to even mention Harrison's name PROVES we are in deep trouble if he EVER sees the field again as a starter on the O Line because he was by far the worst player on our team who saw action last year on the O-Line.     Look, everyone could play amazingly and we could have the best line in NFL history.  But history suggests if 4 of the 5 starters come back from last year's terrible performing bunch AND the fifth is a rookie who hasn't played a down or even had a padded practice yet, it is hard to suggest we are improved over last year.  There is no evidence let alone proof.  You guys are all hoping these guys outperform what they did last year.  That's fine, but it means nothing until and unless they do it.  Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.   This is closer to that than a major upgrade to our O-Line.  I would have expected 3 new superior starters at C, RG and RT as compared to who started last year with a solid back up option at LT if Castonzo fails again this year.  THAT would be clear cut improvement.     Of course we all want the O-Line to play better.  I hope that Clark impresses and moves into a starting spot alongside Kelly who also impresses and kicks but.  THAT would be a start.  I also know a lot about Reitz.  He went to my high school and I am a fan.  But he's getting older and until recently was seen as depth, not starting level talent.  Reading about Kelly and all the accolades leaves me asking "based on what?" We'll learn a little during training camp and Pre-Season, but the truth will really only come in live action against Detroit.  It's just as legit to question whether we've improved as it is to say we have in fact already done so.  Let's have some hard evidence before saying "problem solved."
