You haven't seen any proof that their not going to develop into solid players. Their isn't proof any WR we draft will be good. It's the same risk level. This grass is greener mentality has taken over a lot in this forum.
Again I'M not saying we don't need to draft a WR I think we should. But to throw away the concerns fans and analysts have about a prospect is asinine. It's asinine to think that in his 1st year as a coach Ricky P can teach a guy how to be a WR. Maybe we don't give him that big of a project in his 1st stint as a coach. He already has enough on his plate to deal with.
What in the hell are you talking about?
Look, it's not like we have a ton invested in our WR corps. LaFell is the only young guy we have who we've made a significant investment in as he was a 2cd round pick. The rest of the guys we have are a collection of mid-late round picks, undrafted free agents, and cheap veteran free agents. Well, we traded the future #33 pick away for the right to draft Armanti, but good god, let's just forget that happened.
You act like we'd be tossing out guys who we've made significant investments in. I hate to tell you, but given the state of our WR corps, if a guy can't get on the field, then he's probably just not that good. We have no young guys on our team right now that would make me shy away from taking a WR in the 1st or 2cd. Quite the contrary. The state of our young WRs makes me WANT to take a WR in the 1st or 2cd.
The guy I want is DeAndre Hopkins. I think he's the best total package WR in this class. Other guys may be bigger or faster or more explosive, but I think he's the best WIDE RECEIVER in this class. He has good measurables, has great hands, runs good routes, and just plain makes plays on the football field. He reminds me a ton of Hakeem Nicks when he was at UNC.
