If Blackmon falls to 9, he's going to be the best player there. Plus, surrounding your good young quarterback with talent is always a good thing. Gettis and Lafell have shown some great things, but neither one has been a legitimate starter and threat for an entire season. I don't want to stick Newton in a Josh Freeman type situation where age (Smitty) and younger players regressing (Lafell, Gettis) contributes to the quarterback struggling.

The whole idea that we don't need a WR is silly. One of the biggest recurring themes with this organization since Moose left (the first time) was that we have utterly failed to put a solid #2 next to Smitty.

With Smitty being the age he is drafting a WR with #1 skills while he still has a few years left on him can only help. LaFell / Gettis may turn out to be great. They may not.

We have lots of needs this offseason and WR is one of them.

If he's BPA at 9 I see absolutely no reason to not pick him. Better than reaching for someone who could be had in the middle of the draft.

No thanks to a 6'1 WR in the top 10.

I reserve that air for the freaks. Fitz, Johnson, and Megatron.

Should we spend our #9 pick on someone who isn't even going to be on the board by then? Hmmm....

Now that we have a franchise QB widereceivers will WANT to sign here just so they can play with Cam. There's really no need to draft one.

I disagree with this in theory more than relating to one specific player. If a WR is available when we pick and they are clearly the best player available (in any year in any draft) AND WR is a position of need for the team why not take them instead of relying on another team to let an excellent WR in the meat of their career walk in FA?

It's a good thing that we have more drawing power than we did before but saying we shouldn't draft Position X because of that drawing power is not the correct reaction.

I just worry that Blackmon is going to be the next Crabtree.

I don't have many reasons, but it just crossed my mind.

I guess they are similar size, speed, and build. Plus they are from spread, Big12 offense.

I dunno.

I would much rather have Michael Floyd. I don't see Blackmon being anything more than an average receiver.

I have speculation fatigue. I don't really care anymore. Anybody we draft will be good. We'll make Newton's job easier no matter who we draft.

I love how people act like 6'0 wr who run 4.4-4.5 are special talents.

There is a really good chance he doesn't beat out Gettis or Lafell to get on the field.

When will people learn... Route running is way more important than speed. Look at Raiders...

So now it's about route running.

I really wanted this guy until I saw this:

Cam has brought the ladies back to Bank of America. We don't need this guy scaring them away. Maybe he can get a Red Stripe.
