    Randle - Young. came on strong at the end of the year

    Should we have drafted a WR 1st round? Worst case impossible scenario is Cruz refuses to play and nicks is re-injured.

    If cruz plays this year with no contract he is gone next year, and we have lost a year to groom a new rookie.

    If our drafted rookie played well and nicks recovers cruz has even less negotiating space next year.
    If the FO had a WR that fell to them from the top 10 picks, then sure. Barring that, then no.

    I didn't like the idea of drafting a WR with a high pick. That been said I was hoping for Reese and Co. to find a diamond in the rough as a UDRFA.

    #1) no, just because you CAN make an excuse , and it really seems like you are trying to do just that, that we need a WR, does not mean we don't have other more definable and pronounced needs. You are descibring what MIGHT happen when presenting a case for our WR need. Howevr, there are other positions where it already did happen and we need a guy.

    #2) even if you made the very best case for why we needed a WR, which you did not, are you actually suggesting we pick a wr in the position we were in the draft? There were literally no good wrs left in the 1st round. Even Tavon Austin, who is a lil dynamo went way earlier this year than he would have in any other year simply because the class was so bad. In any other year ever I don't think Patterson is a 1st rounder.

    No so far out based on how many previous threads posed the same question.

    Simple, yet effective.

    Maybe in a couple of years, but with Cruz likely to return and Nicks healing up, we shouldn't waste a draft pick on a wide out..not now. So many holes in the defensive side.
