Agreed. I don't know why people say we need a speed receiver. If someone else drafts Matthews and we get a so called "speed guy", what will people be saying if Matthews puts up significantly better numbers than our "speed guy" during their rookie year?. Draft the best player available IMO.
Why do people think we can't do both? Is there some rule that states you can only draft one receiver per draft? The speedsters I believe we should target will be available after we pick up a guy like Matthews or Landry. Get one of those two with one of our seconds and then pick up the deep threat in the third or later.
The fast guys only add another element to our offense that is lacking. The ability to take it to the house and score from any point on the field, at any time. It would be great to have a player that adds something different to the team. I think Patton or Matthews easily can be starters on our team. The deep threat would be a nice role player that can also open up things for everyone else.
