This is always on the docket, isn’t it? We got a huge addition with the signing of Jeremy Maclin last offseason, who came in and immediately became the best receiver this team has seen since Otis Taylor. Maclin went for more than 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns, while showing the heart of a champion by playing with a badly sprained ankle in the playoffs.
Unfortunately, Maclin needs some help. The rest of that receiving depth chart reads like a sad face. Albert Wilson is a nice player but he is not a legitimate starter at this juncture. Chris Conley is a promising young player but he’s another guy who should not be counted on when you have a team that is ready to compete for the Super Bowl.
This is where it will be fascinating to see what Dorsey does. Will he go for a receiver in the early part of the NFL Draft or does he try to find somebody in free agency? There are some good players that could be signed for a relatively cheap price, including Jermaine Kearse, Anquan Boldin, Rueben Randle and Marvin Jones. The first round could also produce Josh Doctson and Corey Coleman at the No. 28 spot.
