Not too upset we didn't get him for the 2nd time (Balmer face palm). It seems like we pushed harder for WR in FA than for cornerback.Talib, Revis or DRC were never really mentioned considering they got similar money to DJax. It's curious since we already have 2 quality WR and one good corner. I have to believe the WR in this draft that we like maybe out of our reach and after Watkins or Evans they aren't sold on this class for WR. Maybe they really like this class for CB. From what I hear we pushed for 3 or 4 WR since October and one CB. I think FO maybe hoping Evans falls to a spot they are willing to trade up to.
Very true. Or it could be a sign that they think negotiating with Crabtree back will be an issue. After the stunts he pulled negotiating his rookie deal. So you go out and push for Desean and if you got him then you have major leverage over Crabtree and can afford to let him walk b/c you already have his replacement. Or maybe they were just pushing for a dynamic player that would open this offense up. Hopefully they find that guy in the draft. I'm sure you can never be sold on any of these draft prospects til you get them in coach them up and see them perform. They might have wanted a proven commodity b/c they are in win now mode. Probably a combo of everything.
