To those who want AJ Green #1 overall

You are nuts. I would be fine with the pick if we traded down but not the 1st overall pick. I did some research and there has been 1 WR taken #1 overall in the past 25 years and that was Keyshawn Johnson.

So unless Green comes out in the combine and blows everyone out of the water, You would have to be crazy to take him #1 overall.

there has been 1 WR taken in 25 years because "our QB is awesome, if only he had a WR to throw to" is not a common problem with teams that are going to be drafting 1st. in most cases if you need to improve your passing game, you take a QB with #1.

there is no QB worthy of it in this draft, and the gap between Green and any other player of need as far as talent is too big to not take him.

I don't like Green but if he is the best player available and we can't trade down it's either him, Fairley, or Peterson.

We don't need another defensive end. We already have CJ, Brown, Brayton, Hardy, and Norwood, so I wouldn't take Bowers.

Fairley. He was in beast mode last night to further solidify his Top 5 pick ability.

Fairley isn't a defensive end.

I think that you draft the player that is going to help your team the most over the next 10-12 years. How many of those teams who did not draft a WR with the first pick made it to the Super Bowl within the next 5 years? I choose not to copy them.

I think we could take Fairley #1 without it being much of a reach and DT is definitely a need...for those who think we have to reach to draft need.

I like Green though - he's very very good from what I've seen (I'm pretty much an anti-GA fan so I admittedly don't watch much but once we started closing in on the #1 pick I started paying attention). I don't know if I would personally take him #1 because WR is not an area of need for us ATM, at least not nearly so much as DT.

That said, however, I wouldn't be suicidal if he ended up playing for us either. Lafell and Gettis showed flashes last year but we don't really have a stud receiver either.
