We DO NOT need a WR, especially with one of our 1st round picks.
u guys gotta be insane if you actually think we'll take a WR with one of our first two picks.
Do we need to improve team speed ? Yes.
Do we need a vertical threat ? Yes.
Do we need a KR/PR ? Yes.
If we are going to run a spread style offense, do we need to improve the talent around Smith ? Yes.
Does Golden Tate possess these attribute ? Yes.
B-P-A. If Tate is there and is the BPA we'd better take him, it would be in our best interests.
Tell us, what is Tate's speed?
Has he ran a 40 yet?
How many good college WR's bust out in the pro's?
What is Tate's size?
What is his projected round?
You are thinking using a mid- high 1st round pick on this guy? Seriously?
WTF does his combine measurables have to do with his overall production so far in his career?
Does Tate play a physical style of football? Yes, he doesn't shy away from contact and isn't afraid to go over the middle.
Does Tate have good on-field speed? Yes, he gets great separation from defenders and can earn those crucial YAC.
I think a good comparison for Tate is Laveranues Coles. Sure he doesn't have prototypical measureables, but Coles was a very productive WR and has been very consistent.
I don't like him in the teens, but if available in the 20s via trade down, he'd be a solid pick.
