You fail to acknowledge that this team hasn't proven capable of drafting wide receivers.
Crabtree was obvious and fell into their laps. Other than that? Nothing. Patton looks promising, but we don't know how he'll turn out.
I'm not saying we should have traded for Williams here, but it isn't as simple as opting for the draft and getting a player that is as good or better. You act as though these college players are sure things.
