Players like Edwards don't come around often, so I am not gonna hate on that like it seems a good number of people do. It's a gamble, but IMO it's worth the risk. He wasn't gonna last until our next pick so they had to decide if they wanted him or not. With his good athleticism and competitve spirit, he may be the missing slot receiver that we haven't had since Ricky Proehl. You know that they're going to give him plenty of reps on ST, and provided that he can catch on, he could be very dangerous. And, lastly, we might just have an effective wildcat type of play, now. Sorry, haters (or at least semi-haters because of what we gave up), I am excited to see this guy on our team.

Come next draft, I have the feeling that we will have more than enough talent to parlay ourselves into whatever position that we desire. Hurney and Fox's gambles don't seem to be so bad when you look at the small price that we ultimately had to pay. The stealing of Clausen (and to a lesser degree, Lafell) will make whatever perceived price we had to pay to get Edwards look like peanuts a year from now.

Yeah, I alluded to this before.

All you doubters, remember the last sentence.
