Full Version: Drafting a WR

There are two WRs I've been really impressed with in the bowl games: Mike Williams and Corey Davis.

Williams is considered the top WR and is very polished on a team with a number of weapons. Corey Davis was constantly doubled by Wisconsin and still had a great game.

Davis reminds me of TO with better hands. not sure about his speed but he certainly has an "I'd go through a brick wall" mentality.

Has anyone watched these two this year?

Yep. My wife is a huge Clemson fan, so I have to get to watch all their games. Williams is a beast, and I'd be very happy to see him in midnight green.

Also, they have a CB who is very impressive, Tankersley. I'd be okay with either of them on the birds.

I'd take them both. I think we're going to have to trade up to get Williams and we have so many holes to fill.

WR
CB
RB
OL Depth
DT (because Benny is going to cost too much)

The list goes on and on.

Sorry this is OT but do you think Benny Logan's cap hit next year will be more than $3 mil?

His cap hit in 2016 was $1.8mil

For example
Lions' H Ngata's cap hit in 2016 was $4.2mil
Vikings' S Floyd's hit in 16 was $2.5 mil

This site ranks those two at #18 and #20 among all DTs in the NFL. Benny L is not among the top 20.

Cedric Thornton's cap hit in 16 was $2.25mil

Benny L is the only Eagles' FA due for a substantial pay increase.

Am I missing something?

Looking at recent drafts, picking a CB or WR in the first round is risky business.

I'll pull some examples when Tuesday
