An Atlanta Falcons Draft Debate: What Wide Receiver?

New, comments

In the spirit of our offensive tackle discussion late last week, I've decided to open the doors to talk about what wide receiver(s) the Falcons should consider this April. Assuming there's a draft. I've really got to make that a standard disclaimer.

But if that's the case, who do the Falcons take? Though the depth chart is already crowded in Atlanta between Roddy White, Michael Jenkins, Harry Douglas, Kerry Meier, Eric Weems and the practice squad, it's generally thought that the team is going to take a hard look at adding an explosive threat in the draft. There's a lot of options out there.

Does the team look hard at someone like Titus Young with the #27 pick? Do they dip into the second round for someone like Leonard Hankerson? Or do they look a little later at a project speedster like Edmond Gates, who is fast becoming a Falcoholic favorite?

You make the call, gentle readers.
