No telling how much time Smitty has left, he may want to be traded, injury (as he has been injured more than once in the past few years), or just plain age (also goes with high probability of injuries). Green at best could be Smith's replacement (down the road), and learning form Smith. At worst, no better than Lafell or Gettis (with much more upside in time, if he is a "project").
Gettis has shown some potential, granted. However, Green has much more upside IMO.
Lafell, give me break, I don't see where he has shown THAT MUCH (where Green should not be seriously considered).
In any event, if we are stacked at WR and thay are worth anything, trades can and do happen in the in/off seasons.
My hope, is a vet QB brought in, draft Green and a TE, everything else can be addressed through free agency and draft. I trust our new HC (not so much wal-Marty)
Frankly, I don't see why we would draft another QB (since we just did Clausen and Pike). I'm thinking Rivera would prefer for a young QB to sit and watch, to start with. So, drafting another would be a stretch, I would think. I see a veteran QB in our future. Even if it's a stop gap, until our currents ones are sorted, better vets come available, or we end up with the #1 pick (either by losing or.....trading up....hmmm) next year. The defense was not that bad, considering how much time they spent on the field each game.
Offense was LAST in the league last year, it SHOULD be a top priority this year. A J Green is the best available offensive player with TONS of upside.
