The best thing would be to trade down a little ways to mid first round and acquire more picks. We will get good value at where we pick in the first. Could get any number of guys.

Possibles:
Alshon Jeffery
Micheal Floyd
Vontaze Burfict
Luke Kuechly
Monti Te'o
Cliff Harris
Janoris Jenkins

or a number of any other guys.

Then hopefully we could get another 2nd rounder or at least a 3rd rounder for this draft and then a first rounder for next year.

We should, if we draft well, be able to add some very good young talent between next year and the following year if we go this route and play our cards right

I definitely would not mind Jeffery or Blackmon though. They both have crazy good skills and Jeffery is almost Calvin Johnson in size. Both will be big time in the NFL. Either way I'd be happy.

I am not sure you can have a mentality about our first round selection right now. It's not black or white.

You have to consider where we are picking, who is going to be available at our pick, and what needs need to be addressed. You also have to assess value. We just need to address our needs: CB, OLB, DT, OT. So that's where I stand.

My mentality is very fluid right now, too many variables not to be.

On offense, it's not a WR we need to make the jump to being elite, we need cohesion. Look at all of the top offenses in the league, and the one thing you'll notice is they work like clockwork. And that's not talent, that's guys with total familiarity with both the offensive scheme and what to expect from their offensive teammates (not to mention coaches that understand them so well that they know exactly what they can and cannot do well).

Right now, we don't have any of that, so we get a lot of inconsistency on offense. But I think with a year under their belts, along with a complete offseason, we'll see a remarkable improvement in our offensive production. Of course you still need the talent, but I believe this team already has the talent to produce a scary offense, we just need enough time for it to come together and become more consistent.
