if we resign all our FA then ya trade up
If you re-sign all your free agents you still don't have s**t for depth, so when anyone goes down for an extended amount of time, you're doing what they did last year at WR and having to sign guys off the street or the practice squad.
Bottomline, I guarantee there will be at least 2 better receivers than Floyd picked in the 2nd round or lower.
Look at some of the top receivers in the league.
Mike Wallace-3rd round pick
Jordy Nelson-Late 1st rounder
Steve Smith-3rd Round
Roddy White-Last 1st rounder
Brandon Marshall-4th Rounder
Marques Colston-7th Rounder
Antonio Brown-6th Rounder
Vincent Jackson-2nd Rounder
Brandon Lloyd-4th Rounder
Desean Jackson-2nd Rounder
Anquan Boldin-2nd Round
So other than obvious top tier receivers like Fitzgerald or Calvin Johnson who are immediately snatched up in the top 5 picks, and no Floyd is not in their class or even close, most top receivers come later in the draft....or not at all. This is why the scouts get paid, to find guys who can play, because they're out there, there is a receiver who will be picked in round 3 or 4 and will outproduce every other receiver in the draft, it happens every single year.
