CRABTREE WASN'T EVEN THE FIRST WR TAKEN THIS YEAR!!!!
he was still the best receiver in this years draft
Doesn't matter. The question was; Would he have been taken before Calvin Johnson. And the answer is he didn't even go in front of DHB. SO the real question should be weather DHB would have gone over Calvin Johnson. 9 teams passed on Crabtree, for one reason or another. Not just the Raiders. And from past history with top 10 WR's, probably rightfully so. Even Braylon Edwards who has for the most part, been successful, isn't worth a 1st rd. pick. And he was taken #3. Zona can't get a #1 for Boldin. Meanwhile, Peters goes to the Eagles for a #1. Cutler went to the Bears for 2 #1's.
I notice you mentioned Boldin, but conveniently left out Fitzgerald, who actually WAS a #1 pick and is worth more than just a 1st round pick.
