Chad Johnson didn't have 700 yards receiving last year. He had nearly 1,500.

I think that rating him as the best athlete in the draft was a bit over board. Not that I do not think that he has the potential to be a great reciever, but best player in the draft c'mon.

In my opinion a first round draft pick is a guy that can make a pro bowl type impact on your squad in his first season. It doesnt always happen that way as we all know. But it is even less likely for a 1st year reciever to do it. Unless his name was Marcus Colston, but nobody saw him comming.

What I am saying is that WR's take too long to develop to make them 1st round picks.

Once again, my opinion.

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

Good points angry, and the idea here is to pick receivers behind their graded slot. You can't do that if you are picking them in the top ten, so it makes sense to wait a little bit and grab them when you have good value.

And if the rest of the league decides to collectively overvalue receiving talent and you can't land anyone behind slot...then just say whatever and beat them with a running game and a great defense (or just get a great QB who can win with scrubs at WR).

Re: Top priority for the 2008 draft

it's funny we've gone through the dan snyder era with a lack of a wideouts and defensive ends 2 positions that where our strongest before his arrival.
