Edwards pick may be a great one now.

If you believe the rumors that Smith is going to be traded. We have two starters right now with Gettis and LaFell and Edwards should replace the slot WR very well.

Now that's if you believe the rumors.

I even doubt the Edwards pick will ever be a decent one.

I even doubt the Edwards pick will ever be a decent one.

It is not like we haven't seen the old bust of a receiver in the second round (what it will end up being) routine before. I guess the hope is that instead of Jarrett, Edwards actually ends up improving over time. Maybe a new staff can do what the old one couldn't. Develop receivers and design plays to maximize their effectiveness. They go hand in hand. Maybe next year he gets some playing time and at least we can see if he sucks or not.

People need to realize that even if AE turns into Jerry fuging Rice, he was a bad pick because of the draft value given up for him. He was a projected 5th round draft pick that the Panthers, knowing that they would suck majorly this year and therefor have a high draft pick, traded a 2nd round pick for.

I can only assume this was done as some sort of cute ploy to attract the Appalachia inbreds to come to the games. It failed!

And yes, while it take some players several years for the lights to come on (not usually 2nd round picks though), you can usually see glimpses of hope in those players during their rookie years. I have seen nothing from AE to make me think he is going to turn out to be anything more than a serviceable receiver in the slot.

LOL I love how people take your words out of context. I have never said that he would replace Smith. Only that he has a lot of talent and would be a great complement to our WRs if Smith is gone.

The pick makes since if you knew Smith was going to be gone after this year...

Yes, but the glass has piss in it.

I will just add some vinegar to it.
