One thing I would like to argue is for Knox to be higher on the list than most people have him.
He has had injury problems, but prior to them he was quite a dangerous young receiver for the Bears. If he can stay healthy I think he would be the perfect compliment to a #1 as the #2 on the outside.
The guys I would watch most would be him Amendola, Hartline, and Collie, I think these guys should not be too terribly expensive due to some injury and/or production problems but I think they could help fill roles for the offense.

EDIT: And I would agree on Barden, who I believe is 6'6" tall, that he hasn't gotten a chance. New York loves to run in the red zone and use TE's and Fullbacks in pass patterns. They haven't really thrown a lot of fades in the red zone since Plax went to jail. Maybe they drafted him to turn into another Plax... just because he isn't Plax doesn't mean he can't contribute elsewhere though.
I mean, weren't they forced to start Cruz because of injury? That worked out pretty well for them.

On this thread, people are doing a nice job of covering all basis so some of our targets are likely to be correct.

Collie I can see. Based on his production and injury, it kind of reminds me some of a Josh Morgan type signing. Found an article though that talked about his multiple concussions and suggesting he should retire.

As I said in a much earlier thread, Ramses Barden should be the one WR we go after in the offseason. He will come cheap, and be very inexpensive. And yet, he has so much upside its scary. The Giants have no idea what they have/had in their WR's. I knew Cruz was going to be a monster the first time I seen him in a preseason game, I knew Nicks was going to be amazing, annd in all honesty, Manningham (whose gone), Hixon, and now Randle are all good WR's. They have some of the best WRs in the game. But, Barden could be better than all of them. Insnaely tall, ridiculously LONG arms, decent route running (could be better) and above average hands and speed. This guy could be like Cris Carter and Randy Moss all in one.
The Giants dont know how to use their WR's, or at least, it takes them a while to figure it out and they are losing a sure fire star in Barden. Look at this guys college stats. In his sophmore year he caught 42 balls for 824 yards and 5 TDs for a 19.6yd/reception average. But then, his junior year he blew up, 57 catches for 1467 yards and 18 tds for a 25.7yds/reception. His senior year was more possession then his crazy junior year but still super effective 67 balls for 1257 yards and 18 tds.
This guy is 6'7". The Giants have no idea what they have.

With that being said tho...i dont think WR should be a top priority...if we get one great if not im happy with what we have. This has to be a make or break year for Hank tho. He needs to have a big season if he wants to be here next year.

I think I rather roll with Dez Briscoe then pick up Barden.
Regardless, it looks like Coughlin is still developing him and will retain him for 2013 at the least

I also think he'd struggle running the routes that a slot guy typically runs because of his size.
I could be totally wrong, but that's just what I think.
