  • The Falcons gave up 5 picks to move up and get him. Haven't been following the prospects. If we want a WR like him, we need to trade up. Wont get him at our draft position.

    No Julio Jones or AJ Green's in this draft I'm afraid.

  • Dwayne Bowe is a UFA......


    similar size, only 28, not as fast but has put up huge numbers despite being double teamed and having Cassell as his QB

    I drool at the thought of Rice/Bowe on the outside and Tate in the slot

    Cruz is restricted meaning we'd have to give picks, and Marshall isn't even a FA....

    and as for drops: https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2 ... receivers/

    Bowe isn't mentioned so it can't be too bad..... surprisingly Tates numbers are a lot better than I thought theyd be

    heh the first list is simply the most dropped passes..... the only reason they are listed so many times is because they were targeted so often, you have to look at the drop rate


    Marshall had 131 catchable passes and dropped 13...... compared to jordy nelson who had 57 catchable and dropped 8

    Cruz is a bit high but a lot of his are downfield so its understandable


    either way with what Bowe adds to the table it wouldnt be a concern for me to sign him to a sidney rice type deal..... and a big reason for that is that if sidney rice goes down next year, all of a sudden our WR corps looks awfully thin

  • Golden Tate has had two passes dropped in the past two seasons. Wow. Both this season, as last year he was the only receiver to not have a dropped pass.

    Talk about sure hands...If he can keep developing his route-running, he could be a truly elite receiver.

    When I wish for Bowe I am in no way knocking Tates' potential... heck he's only 3 months older than Wilson is...... I just don't think he's ready to be our number 1 guy QUITE yet, which would be the situation if Rice gets hurt (which at this point in his career has proven to be more likely than not to happen during the course of a season)

  • Bowe is intriguing and so is Cruz.
