What I am saying is to identify that top talent / potential franchise WR then go after him in the draft much like how the Falcons went after Julio Jones and the Lions going after Megatron. Whether their performance translate in the NFL is any matter, but there was no doubt both the Falcons and Lions had franchise WR in mind.
Lions had one the league's worst records so they picked high and had to go with the obvious talent in CJ2K the WR and yes the Falcons did hit on their immensive risk but as a result of throwing away their draft they were left with no running game and no defense. They have recovered nicely because they did well in Free Agency when they scored Gonzalez and now Steven Jackson and they have spent this draft fixing their defense as much as they can yet they are not as complete a team as we are
