VikesCentric: Assessing the free-agent wide receivers | StarTribune.com
Well that don't look very good...and with what Garcon got last year, you gotta guess there'll be some overpaying for most of these guys.
Maybe we should try and sign a warpig in FA and draft 2 WRs early...?

Of course I'm partial to Hunter after finding out he was from the 757....but would be happy with either one.
Good thing is, with the lack of viable options at QB in this draft, it looks like alot of the bigs will be taken early and often and only about 2 or 3 WR's by the time they get to us at 23. One of the top 3 or 4 Z's should be there for the taking especially if Austin is as advertised. Someone will grab him as the next Harvin/Welker.
Allen - If Buffalo goes QB, (8th isn't bad to take one this year) Allen should go to Miami
Patterson - If Buffalo takes Alen, Miami might take Patterson but I'm thinking the might want Austin.
Austin - If Miami does take the Z that would leaves only the Rams to jump in. All 3 of their prime WR's are FA's. Depends on what they do with Danny, they might look for a speed guy like Austin.
Worst case scenario:
Allen - Buffalo
Patterson - Miami
Woods - St Louis
Leaves us with the choice of
Austin - more of a Y
Hopkins - Great Z can be a X as well.
Williams - Great Z
Hunter - Great Z
I could live with a roster of:
Percy/Wright Y, Vet Z/(Insert Hunter, Williams, Hopkins here), Simpson X,
That would leave us the following options in the second for a Warpig
