    Hyperbole much??? We all get it... You want OL in the draft. Same tired song and dance.

    Dansby part tre and Reddick are good near term examples and I’ve got countless others. Want me to keep going???

    TBF Houston's offense was average with Hopkins when they didnt have Will Fuller's speed on the field. It would help if Kirk was a little more dynamic. Although I'm hoping it was just the ankle injury that slowed down his progress.

    Well hopefully we have our burner in Isabella this year. Let's see how Houston's offense looks with Fuller and Cobb lol.

    I think Kirk could really blossom this year as the #3 receiver.

    I wouldn’t be devestated if we took Lamb like some would be. I would prefer to trade down and still be able to take him and an extra pick.

    The other thought is Hopkins is great but he was super when Fuller was healthy. Can Kirk be Fuller?

    So much comes down to our 3 rookies from last year and what this organization thinks of them. I would hope if they DON’T think highly of them then they make the right move. You shouldn’t simply avoid taking a wr because we drafted 3 last year IF you think we missed on those picks last year.

    Drafting Lamb or Juedy or Ruggs would be looking to the future. It might not make you happy today but it probably will down the road.

    The other scenario is trade down. Get an OT, which I think will be Thomas, and in the second round get a guy like Mims. A guy like Duverney really excites me. So many different paths to take. The only sure thing is half of us will be happy and the other half won’t.

    I actually don't specifically want OL - I like Simmons, Brown, and can even understand why we'd choose Okudah. What I think is the most ridiculous concept I've read on this board, is spending the #8 overall pick on your #4 wide receiver. We just acquired one of the best WRs in the league. Spread the wealth.

    Dansby was a cheap roster addition. Reddick was a panic move because the guys we wanted were gone, and they thought he was BPA. This isn't the same argument. Pick a moment where we were stacked at a position and selected someone else just to fill a need. It's like picking a safety when we had Tyrann, Johnson, and Jefferson back there.

    Kirk is more in the Golden Tate/Randall Cobb mold. However, those guys are/were far more physical runners. That wouldnt be as big of a deal if he was faster/more explosive.

    I think he's going to be solid. Its just guys like Michael Gallup/D.J Chark are more of what we need on this team. If we had a bunch of speedsters already then Kirk would be more than ideal.

    Like I said earlier. Just hoping it was the ankle last year.

    I do not get the Kirk hype from his performance or availability as a pro. If he could be traded for say another 3 or 4 round pick... I would then go Jeudy or Lamb at eight :)

    That's not even remotely a good analogy. Outside of 1 punt return, Ted Ginn did absolutely, positively nothing when he was with us.

    I think Kirk has the talent to be given another year before even thinking about anything else.

    I mean he hasn't exactly been impressive either. So yeah I think it's fair to see it as a situation where he has one more year to prove that he can be at least the number 2 guy before finding someone better to play that role.
