Kudos to Oxbay, Mitch, Craig and Wonder for nailing the idea of the Round 3 big WR ON APRIL FREAKING 7th. THREE WEEKS BEFORE THE DRAFT. Having had success with the Ed McCaffreys and Joe Jureviciuses of the world, we'd be much better served here in the third round with Patrick Turner or Ramses Barden than going for the glamour divas of Round 1. Those Round 2 (and Round 3) guys have their heads screwed on properly and they have the requisite physical tools (read: pedigree) to make it in the NFL. We're not implying that Nicks is a diva, just that WR is not worth it in Round 1. Doesn't the optimism of a Barden in Round 3 make that argument more plausible?!
Nicks can end up in the Hall of Fame. Guys like Barden and Turner can both be busts. But you want the upside if you are right. The upside in these guys?.?.?..I'd rather be good and 6'6" than good and 6'2". In 2007, how much of the Super Bowl Title that the Giants won was due to Toomer being 6'3", Burress 6'5" and Boss 6'6"?? You cannot teach genes. Remember Mike's quote on George Young: "I'll take size over speed every time. In the fourth quarter the fast guys slow down but the big guys are still big." Here is to Barden in Q4.
