Bryant would be the guy if were taking a receiver (highly doubt it). i think were getting an offensive tackle and a random playmaker who can return kicks and punts like spiller, javid best, or a corner who can return too. the only WR i would take that early in the 1st is bryant. and in the second round we get that safety from oregon, i forget his name. this is a very important draft for us and we cant afford to make raideresque mistakes.
Tate was a lot more productive than DHB was in college. DHB is faster, however Tate is the better overall prospect IMHO coming out of college and is much more versatile. Tate also showed the type of player he is by coming up big in big games, and by producing when Floyd went down even though he was often double teamed.

As much as I don't agree with the Tate pick (we'd benefit a deep threat-type more), it might not be out of the realm of possibility. Here are my three reasons:
Tate can stretch the field vertically. He will run in the 4.4's.
