Some thoughts on the top-4 wide receivers in the 2012 draft

You know, I've got a melting pot of ideas from the "Leggs" position review and Mike Mayock's assessment of the top 4 wide receivers from "NFL Total Access swirling through my head this morning, and wondered if anyone else sees this:

I think it bodes really well for the Panthers to select a wide receiver with one of the top two picks (not necessarily that it will happen), because if you're looking at Justin Blackmon, Alshon Jeffrey, Michael Floyd and Mohammed Sanu - all four have the size, strength and physical attributes of EXACTLY what this offense loves in a #2 receiver. None of those boys are going to get pushed around if they're setting the edge (all at 220+). All really project well in possession-type roles because they are so sturdy, even if none of them will necessarily blow by a cornerback's cushion or burn you to death with their feet.

Mayock pointed out that the weakness in every one of their games is that they may struggle to get separation but catch the ball very well. He really sounded unsure on my personal crush, Alshon Jeffrey, pointing out "his big, beautiful body" - Mike, you getting a case of the Jeffreys too? - and how well he is able to pluck the ball out of the air. Pointed to him as a potential elite redzone target.

With this in mind, can anybody else get with me on grabbing a receiver in the second. I loved Dator getting Alshon Jeffrey for us in the mock draft, and had actually pointed out previous to that draft that if Jeffrey slips through the first round, we gotta maneuver back in front of st. louis in the second to get him. Dwight Jones and Marvin Jones also have that big, sturdy frame with great hands and power in their core thing, too, and could be around later. Think I recall a guy from Iowa (McNutt?) who reminded me of that, too, in one of the collegiate all-star games.
