the offense is going to be more balanced next year, more wr 1 and more Julius thomas, manning will still spread it around, i expect them to keep tamme, he is still a good pass catcher in two tight end sets, don't be surprised too if they get a cheap vet post june 1.

Gerrell Robinson is another Te/HBack/bigwr they like to get some balls.

it is going to be ok, peyton will either retire or take a huge bonus and restructure next year, they will keep all the guys worth keeping.

If we learned anything last yr. Big offense stats dont always win. Think we are going WR early in draft to provide impact for 18. think Wayne to Harrison. Need balance on offense throw less, Run more. Id like a bruising back. to provide more punnch.

If given the role that Decker previously had, I believe Caldwell could put up similar numbers. Not saying he's as good as Decker, but Peyton has made worse receivers than Caldwell look like studs. I don't believe the plan is for Caldwell to be Deckers replacement though, someone will be added, most likely via the draft.

I think we will sign one FA WR and draft one in the first or second.
I was opposed to drafting one in the first before but if we sign Ware then **** it.
If BPA is a WR then take him dammit. Odell Beckham Jr, the Broncos are calling you

This. Still wishing they had taken Lacy last year, however Ball did come around as the season went on.

WR,KR,PR solves 3 issues in one. Plus he's fast and while he does have some issues with getting separation he can potentially take the cover off the defense which we do not current possess at WR.

Odell paired with DT and Decker would make me very happy.

But if we don't get Odell then I want Bryant from Clemson. Big, tall, fast and loves jump balls.

No need to worry about WRs, as always Demaryius will command double teams along with Welker seeking special attention and whoever is the #2 is going to catch a lot of balls, lets not forget about what Julius Thomas does.

just gotta make sure he has hands doesnt need to be anything special.

I think we take a WR in the top 3 rounds. Being such a deep draft at the position, it would be stupid not to do so regardless of need.

Also, what an ideal situation for a rookie to thrive - he will be the fourth option in our offense. Not to mention he will be playing with PFM.

I could see us adding another veteran WR FA for cheap, but the more I think about it, the more I think that we'll just roll with DT, Welker, Caldwell, and a top 3 round rookie.


EDIT: That's hoping that the rookie is on the Keenan Allen end of the spectrum and not on the Jon Baldwin side of things

There are a lot of FAs out there that can be added, plus I hope they move Robinson back to WR.

That more than a lot of teams have.

1) DT, JT and Wes can all handle more throws their way.
2) Caldwell is capable as a 3/4 option, knows the playbook and Peyton
3) We will take a WR in the top 3 rounds
4) We can add a guy like Sproles out of the backfield (swing, wheel, screen, checkdown)

I'm sure it's more than many teams have, but my point is that we have 0 depth there at the same time. Imagine someone going down...

Im fine with our top 3 WRs actually

1. The offense runs through the Thomas's anyways
2. Ball was running well towards the end of last year so his emergence could make this offense more balanced.

Depth is a concern, so we need to add some better backups

But Im OK with our current group of starters

They'll bring in a vet. Santonio? Miles Austin? Cotchery? These guys won't get huge money.

I don't seem the appeal of drafting a guy. I don't think a rookie would do much with Peyton. Wish they would have kept Tavarres King.

We need another wideout. Walker drops to many balls and Caldwell is mediocre at best.

We should most definitely draft one in the top 3 rounds.

Losing Decker is bigger than many think. I do understand it was a necessary evil though. He wanted too much cash. We needed D.

WR is loaded in the draft and FA. We will add another couple bodies and be fine. It's a year where we could find a Brandon Marshall type in rd 4. Very deep draft.

I really like Donte Moncrief from Ole Miss. He could be there at the bottom of the second.

I think you'll see something like this. If not Sidney Rice, maybe Kenny Britt or someone.
