To those who want AJ Green #1 overall

Someone had to say it. Fairley needs to be our Pick!

I agree, but the only reason I wouldn't take him: The draft is deep at DT this year. We can find good value in the third and I think we bring in a vet as well.

We would not be able to afford a free agent #1 WR, and there are only 1 or 2 in the draft. Green's hands are better than Jones and he is smoother--that is important to a QB. Take Green, and get a DT in the third round. Steve Smith cannot hold the franchise hostage if we have a 6-4, 215 lb WR who is faster (now he is) and has better hands.

If we take Fairley, we have a 5'9" 32 year old #1 WR who yells at rookie QBs, drops 1 out of 8 passes, and hints at wanting to be traded. Our WR corps would be set for a decade. A new QB, and imagine the chemistry.

We make waves for a different QB? Then we can talk about Green.

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.

And how did that work our for the Jets? I sure bet they were kicking themselves for not taking Cedric Jones instead!! And for those of you asking, who is Cedric Jones, EXACTLY!!! He was the next big thing at DL that year and only had 1 decent year.

Just because something doesn't happen regularly doesn't mean it is bad/wrong to do.

If we are stuck with the first pick and can't trade down I would love the Green pick. Fairley is the next option IMO.

That being said, anything can happen between now and the combine/interviews/prodays to change everything.

Also, just a note: Smith is not getting any younger.

This is gonna be a tough decision by Hurney.

Well if it's your logic that we shouldn't draft Green because there hasn't been a receiver taken first overall since Keyshawn in 1996, then you shouldn't take Fairley either since there hasn't been a defensive tackle taken first overall since Dan Wilkinson in 1994.

I have no idea who I want #1 overall. I am going to wait for the combine before jumping on any bandwagons.
