This kid is good but im tired of all this Project superstar and taking fliers on guys and trying to get a steal in the draft. We have more than enough ammunition to put the time, effort and evaluation to find the best WR in the Draft. Whether its Mike Evans (who is my choice) or Sammy Watkins or whoever else. Its time to straight up draft a high first round talent an do away with all the kyle williams, marlon more and Baldwins of the world. Crabtree fell in our laps, i am scared to even think who would we would have if we hadnt taken him.
Baldwin was a first round talent, you realize this? There are absolutely no guarantees at the wide receiver position, it has the highest first round bust rate of any position. So, yes while I'd like to have someone like Watkins, I don't think that there isn't plenty of outstanding talent that will come after him in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.
Also, trading the farm for a single WR is generally stupid, look at Atlanta to see why. They traded a bunch of picks for Julio Jones and now their defense has more holes than swiss cheese, surely they could have used some of those picks to fill in the holes and have taken a guy a little further down who'd still be a good contributor and allowed them to maintain their overall team balance.
