I partially disagree. Rules require a certain number of guys on the line-of-scrimmage. So if you don't have anybody that can contend physically with big CBs, then the defense wins those matchups easily. You are also SERIOUSLY out matched in the red-zone, where there isn't space for anybody to work.
There is a reason why the best WRs in the league are all big. This argument is typical of teams (like us) that covet a Fitzgerald, Megatron, Julio Jones, Andre Johnson, etc. It's because they can do everything. There is no matchup that they can't win.
The reason I like Rogers so much is because he fits that mold. I'm not saying we couldn't make use of a guy like Tavon Austin. He'll be a solid role player IMO. But after drafting AJ Jenkins last year, I don't think we should be filling our team with short/weak players.
Go big. DBs and WRs. But didn't we get sucked into going big with Taylor Mays? And yes, we all want big, athletic, and fast. Supermen. More often we get one or two those attributes and have to make tougher calls, in this regard.
