    On a sidenote Mindfield it's Donnie Avery and I'm 80% sure it's Lavelle Hawkins.
    Yeah, I am bad with names....maybe I should start doing what Parcells does and just call them by number

    And you may be right... for next year... however long term (down the road) I don't think Walker will be around. Shanny mentioned he will prolly hafta have surgery on his knee again, microfracture. I have no idea if that is him spewing crap out his backside or if it is legit... but it creates the idea in my head that if we find a wideout worth taking and take one I will support it 100%. I just hope whoever it is does pan out sometime soon.

    No love for DJ Hall from Alabama? I love his size/speed combo and his ability to go up and pluck the ball out of the air. He needs to work on dropping his hips and exploding out of breaks though. Overall, he had a solid week of practice.

    Drops too many passes. Just look at him in the Senior Bowl practices.

    I'd like seeing Bennett too, but only if Manningham is off the board. Manningham is one of the fastest receivers in the draft and he uses his size well too. He has more upside than Bennett but Earl would be a good fit if we can't but Mario.

Earl was his guy at Vandy, so I have a strong feeling he'd have every opportunity to get a lot of looks from Jay during his rookie season and beyond. It couldn't hurt to have another one of Jay's boys out there with him.

    Choice would be an excellent fit here. I think we can get in in three, perhaps with our earliest four, which will be in the top 110 picks.
    Well, Johnnie Avery is interesting because of his deep speed, and I have heard different things about Latrelle Hawkins (Kiper had him as a first rounder earlier this year) and Caldwell all seem to be in that general Top 50 area....overall, I am not high on the receivers in this draft at all, but I could live with any of those three.

    In all fairness to Caldwell, he was a Zook recruit, even though his brother went there, and he did not play for Spurrier. He had no choice in playing in Meyer's Offense. I think the fact he adapted so well is a positive.

    I think Caldwell is a solid No. 2 type with decent size/speed, and he has discipline in his route running and very good hands.

    He looks like a second round pick, and I think he is clearly better than his brother, who, say what you will, has carved out a career in the NFL for several years now.
