Crabtree is most certainly top ten. Before his achilles, once Kaep took over, he proved to be a top ten WR. Now that he's healthy again, he's going to be a difference maker. That said, Sherman is better at his position as he's elite. However, a CB is largely a result of the defense in front of them. I think WR is a more important position.
Exactly. Not so much a question of who is better at their respective position, but who is more difficult to replace on their respective team.
Yeah, Crabs, but it's close. The strength of that SEA defense, last season, was more so the D line depth, like you mentioned above. The strength of their secondary is Earl Thomas.
Last season, Crabs is easily the answer to this question. This season, with SJohnson and Lloyd on board, and a second year QP, a loss of Crabs wouldn't sting as badly imo. Losing Crabs still leaves the team with Boldin/SJ/Lloyd which is much better than Boldin/KWillams/Baldwin (ugh).
