    Could you imagine Carlos with Brees slinging the ball?

    I agree only because CH will be a higher drafted player and the Saints have bigger needs with their high picks than a 4th/5th receiver.

    Well we just lost Brandin Cooks so maybe they could pick a WR. Definitely need to focus on defense though.

    Carlos Henderson

    https://withthefirstpick.com/2017/04...outing-report/
    Draft Range: 3rd Round
    http://www.rotoworld.com/content/pla...e=66579&spln=1
    Carlos Henderson would be an interesting option here. Pauline believes as much, slotting the 5-foot-11, 199-pounder to the Panthers in the second round of each of his last two mock drafts.

    Brice got his feet wet during his first season in the NFL. In his sophomore campaign, he’s about to dive in head first.
    Trent Taylor

    https://www.profootballfocus.com/dra...ouisiana-tech/
    Possibly the best hands of the entire class. Rarely drops ball or has it in a position for a defender to make a late play on it. Will hold onto ball even through big hit...He’ll never be anything more than a slot receiver, but that’s a very important position in today’s NFL.

    Xavier Woods

    https://catcrave.com/2017/04/13/caro...-xavier-woods/
    Woods is an exciting player, who carries himself with poise on and off the field. Currently, CBS Sports ranks Woods as the seventh best strong safety prospect with a round 4 or 5 draft grade. Should the LA Tech [sic] safety be available at the beginning of day 3, Carolina should pounce on this electric and exciting prospect.

    Carlos Henderson

    http://bsndenver.com/carlos-machine-...oncos-offense/
    “The run after the catch—anytime you can get the ball in a guy’s hands like that, and he’s got the ability to take it to the house, that’s something that you always want,” John Elway said. “It’s not always easy to catch and run with the ball, and that’s what he likes to do. He creates the big plays, and that’s what we really liked about him.”
    http://broncoswire.usatoday.com/2017...enver-broncos/
    Henderson is the only member of Denver’s draft class yet to sign.
    https://predominantlyorange.com/2017...grade-broncos/
    Digging deeper into his third down abilities, there was no distance to the sticks on third down that was too much for Henderson. He averaged at least 10 yards per catch in any third down scenario imaginable.

    Houston Bates


    http://www.redskins.com/news/article...2-17489e9a7193
    “I want to be the captain. I am shooting for that every year. I want to lead those guys,” Bates said. “I think I am a great leader. I do everything right, on and off the field. Someone has got to take the flag and lead the group. If you have credibility and you think you do everything right then I think you should get the privilege to lead the group. That’s my goal, but I got to get healthy first and lead by example. That’s my goal this year, spearhead that unity. Hopefully we will be one of the best units in the league this year.”
    Jeff Driskel

    “When you bring him in on the final cut, when you claim him, there really wasn’t a lot of opportunity to play in our offense,” said Bengals quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor, via Cincinnati.com. “I saw him improve with his pocket presence, getting comfortable in an NFL pocket in practice. You’re still not getting hit. So it will be in the spring time where we’ll get to see him really run our offense. He probably threw to people, targets who were standing still with me in drill work, way more than he threw to any moving targets this whole year. Which sounds silly but that’s just [the way it is].”
    http://www.cincinnati.com/story/spor...kel/335864001/
    “As a young guy I thought he was impressive in that way. So that gives me hope that OK now, so far he’s checked off the boxes that he could check, and now when we get him really running our offense against a moving defense well find out what his processing is. He certainly, physically, can make all the throws.”

    Paul Turner

    https://insidetheiggles.com/2017/05/...ul-turner-now/
    Paul Turner was a 5-foot-10 and 193 pound receiver from a small school and an even smaller football program, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs...(uhhh -- thanks?)...Sure, Turner could be placed on the practice squad again. Sadly, that would probably take another herculean effort like the one he displayed a season ago. With him being given less opportunity, that’s hard to imagine. Turner will need to use every opportunity he’s given as an audition for the other 31 NFL teams. He’s done enough to endear himself to Eagles fans forever, but unfortunately, it appears his time in Philly will be short lived.
    Trent Taylor

    http://sfo.247sports.com/Bolt/Trent-...-says-52596531
    "We all give each other a hard time during the draft process because we all develop these draft crushes," general manager John Lynch said during an interview on KNBR Radio's Murph and Mach Show on Monday. "Mine was Reuben Foster. I love the way the guy plays. I love the spirit about the kid. Trent Taylor was one of those guys for Kyle. He's got a rare ability, and that's what Kyle wants, a slot receiver to separate. He can get open on third down. He's a chain mover -- one of those guys."
    http://www.ninersnation.com/2017/5/1...pick-toughness
    He will likely start out his career in Santa Clara working on special teams but it won’t be long before he plays a bigger part in the offense.
    http://www.49ers.com/news/article-2/...5-cfb84637fff1
    Just as he’s done his entire football career, Taylor will have to prove that his size is an asset rather than a limitation. He's one of 13 receivers currently on the 49ers 90-man roster in what is expected to be one of the most competitive position groups come training camp.
    http://www.lmtonline.com/49ers/artic...s-11164542.php
    “The thing that set him apart is just his overall knowledge and dedication to the game: Just trying to be better at everything he does. He knows he’s not as big, and tall, and fast as some other guys. So he worked on all the things that can separate him. He’s an excellent route runner. He’s an excellent guy after the catch. He catches and runs as fast as anybody in the draft, as far as being able to transition up the field. I think it’s just his will and competitive nature that separated him from some other guys.”

    Carlos Henderson

    http://www.milehighreport.com/2017/6...rlos-henderson
    He’s obviously a lock for a roster spot, but his exact role is yet to be determined.
    https://www.profootballfocus.com/fan...nderson-train/
    The newest Broncos receiver offered off-the-charts measurements in some key categories in college. Scott Barrett explains.
    https://www.all22.com/denver-broncos...e-name-broncos
    There can never be too many explosive players on a football team. Henderson could absolutely be a game-breaking player on special teams, but the Broncos likely have bigger plans for him.

    Kenneth Dixon


    http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/...e-3878ea2e6fb2
    Dixon has loads of talent. He is quick, explosive and tough to bring down. According to Pro Football Focus, Dixon forced a missed tackle once every 3.4 touches. That was the best rate among all NFL running backs in 2016.
    https://ebonybird.com/2017/06/11/kenneth-dixon-ravens/
    Yet, fans seem skeptical about the former Louisiana Tech Bulldog. Despite his above average play as a rookie, no one wants to commit to Dixon. That opinion needs to change.
    Kentrell Brice

    http://cheeseheadtv.com/blog/kentrel...-secondary-445
    However, the second-year man from Louisiana Tech should see more snaps from scrimmage. He is 5-11, 200 pounds and runs the 40 in 4.4. He’s also a physical player and in addition to playing safety, could also see time in a big nickel package as Micah Hyde did in the past.

    Paul Turner


    http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/...iana_Tech.html
    "God has a plan for everybody," he said. "You can't focus on the timing. All you can do is control what you can control. It's not about, 'Oh, if I was here at this time, I would have had this many catches.' All you can do is focus on what's in your hands, and that's not."
    http://phi.247sports.com/Bolt/Paul-T...-year-53059385
    Turner removed himself from all contact with the outside world, focusing instead on catching footballs for the Eagles in hopes of making the team. While Turner's quest fell short, he became the highest-paid practice squad player in the NFL immediately after 53-man roster cutdowns. That demonstrated how much the Eagles valued having him on the team.

    Quinton Patton


    Welp.

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...njured-reserve
    The Jets released the wideout from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, per the league transaction wire.

    Wow. Wonder what's up with Patton. I hope he can catch a ride with somebody. I didn't like him going to the Jets anyway.

    Sounds like he just wasnt able to rehab quickly enough.

    His career was ruined the second he landed on the 49ers. I hope Trent can avoid that hell hole, post decent numbers and get with a real team after his contract is up.
