Gettleman strengthened our biggest hole which was DT.

If he drafted a WR, does he:

a) Draft a WR to replace Steve Smith?
b ) Draft a WR to be a #3-#4?

a) couldn't be accomplished with this draft and why would you draft another player #3-#4 receiver on a team with so many already?

The most important thing about this draft is that it gives us a reason to go with a premier WR in the first round in 2014.

Two things:

1) I believe we would've taken Tavon Austin of any other player had he been there when we picked.

2) I believe we were trying to trade back before we realized that Star was going to be there at 14.

Maybe yes to #1

No to #2. There were 3 players we wanted when Tennessee picked. Gettleman said as much, after that Gettleman told people handling the phones to tell them they were not interested. I don't think we had any desire to trade back at all.

This draft wuz a trench draft, it is gonna make next years draft that much more exciting because i could see a run on skill positions.. CB, S, WR. We are gonna load up if nobody shows anything this year.

Kinda disappointed we didn't draft C. Johnson (who's now going to flourish with A. Rodgers) but I concede. This was a weak draft for QBs, WRs and RBs.

Rogers has potential but for him to ignored by the Bengals, Patriots and Cowboys for seven rounds... that's incredibly worrisome. I'm getting the feeling he did something more than just smoke weed.

Everyone got all worked up because we looked at so many WR's, and many on here were adamant that we were going to take one in either the first or second round. But as I said in a couple of threads leading up to the draft, almost all of the top WR's were evaluated before we signed Hixon.

Once we signed him, it was obvious to me that the team didn't like any of them enough to take early. My guess is that they saw a bunch of #2's and no #1 receivers, and we already have a young one of those that the team has made clear they like.

Our FA dollars went to WR's and secondary help.

Our draft went elsewhere

They didn't work out all those WR's just to fool other general managers and look cool. Clearly none impressed them enough to draft high. I'm fine not drafting one this year. We cannot fail to address it next year though, I am tired of just casually taking Smitty for granted. The clock is running out, and has been for quite some time now.
