This article makes some great points. I had a post awhile back that presented a similar argument, but Mr. Pasquarelli is much more eloquent than I. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft07/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=2805425 This is the best quote... "For the purpose of assessing the recent first-rounders, let's eliminate those selected in the past three years because their body of work is not yet sufficient for reliable analysis. That leaves 27 wide receivers from the first rounds of the 1997-2003 drafts. Of those 27 wideouts, 14 are out of the league entirely and nine are with franchises other than the ones that drafted them." Yes, more than half of the 1st round receivers from 1997-2003 are not even in the league anymore. These are guys that were "can't miss". Not only did they miss, they aren't even in the league anymore. These are guys that teams spent lots of time and money researching... And they bombed. Just think about that when your looking at this years class. Odds are if 5-6 guys go in the first round, then at least 2 of them won't even be in the league in 5-10 years. Everyone gets hung up on "their guy" (myself included) and thinks they are a can't miss. The reality of the WR position is that you don't need to have a Randy Moss on your team to win the super bowl, just ask Tom Brady. The colts have had the top receiver tandem for years, along with one of the best QB's in NFL history, and they finally won the big one just this year. It seems like the Pats could put anyone in there and they would do well (not counting Reche Caldwell). I agree that we need to upgrade our WR's, I'm just of the opinion that we can do that later in the draft and build up other positions of need in the 1st round, such as DE. Everyone has acknowledged that this years draft is deep in WR's... So why take one with our first rounder?
