Wrs... I got your stinking Wrs
We all know there is a lack of talent on this offense at the WR position
Here are my bets for improving the WR position.
1. Get Jennings here.
I know he is 30, I know he has shown an interest in playing for Miami (per his family). However, we offer him something no other team can. 1) Prime #1 WR targets, 2) Playing with AD which will ensure he receives one on 1 coverage all day. 3. Lastly, he gets to show the pack that they made a mistake in letting him go over the other guys. No way he passes that up. The fins won't get him to do that.
Offer him 4 year 32 million dollar contact.
2. Draft Patterson and Kennan Allen/Woods/Hunter
I expect both players to be available in the 1st and 2nd round. I expect Allen to fall because of his speed. He's just not a blazer and he fits a Reuben Randle type mold. I love his hands and his passion for the game. Runs damn good routes too. If Allen is not available, then getting a combination of Woods or Hunter would be solid. Both should be decent pros however, neither will be game changers.
Patterson might be gone by 20 but if he falls to us... Lawd this is gonna be a damn good team. The kid is rough as a route runner and will need lessons and coaching something our coaches and a pro like Jennings can provide. However, he is a human joystiq with the ball in his hands. His change of direction puts him in the same class as Harvin and CJ. He has legitimate 4.35 speed.
3. Trade Harvin. We should be able to get a team like the Pats to give up a 2nd for the guy. Hell, they gave up a 2nd for Wes Welker. I like Harvin but I like the prospect of having a dynamic trio like the one mentioned. The 2nd we get can be used to trade up and get what's needed from a Allen
4. Weight the potential of Wright vs. the known of Simpson. I hated Simpson's 2012 season. Yet, I don't believe we have seen a true representation of his abilities. I don't think he should be a #1(not in Marr's terms but in terms of go to guy) but a solid # 2 or 3, seems to be his role. He will bridge the gap for the young ones until they get up to speed. Wright has reached his ceiling. He is what we have. A decent guy out there that will make a play or two.
This will give us a corp of
X -Jennings/ Back up X Patterson
Z- Simpson/ Back up Z Allen.
Slot 1 Paterson / Jennings
Slot 2 - Wright / Jennings
Backups Jenkins ( dirt low)/ Arousha
Practice squad - Childs and Burton
I already know the concerns.
We have other needs. However, we have 6 more picks in positions that are deep in this draft. Trading up to get Allen should net us a 3rd or 4th in exchange for our 2nds. We can address DT, and LB with our 2 3rds (which is about wright for those positions) a Back up RB in the 4th can replace Gerhart next season. The rest can be an OL or DL here or there.
