Cribbs is not worth a 1st rounder. End of story
I never said he was. My statement really had nothing to do with Joshua Cribbs. I said people would b*tch and moan about the suggestion of giving up a 1st for anything less than a superstar player that is worth more than a 1st. In other words, the only way people around here are willing to give up a precious 1st is if we're low-balling the other team.
As for the guy who said no return man in history was worth a 1st rounder.. Devin Hester is a big reason the Chicago Bears went to the Super Bowl a few years ago. If I'm not mistaken, the ultimate goal is to win games. You draft people to help you win games. Game-breaking return men help you win games. So yes, a KR/PR could very well be worth a 1st.
Keep in mind I never said anything about Joshua Cribbs. I personally wouldn't give up a 1st for the simple fact that I know he can be had for less. But you won't see me whining about the thought.
