A QB would have been a huge mistake. Heck I bet a few of the ones many here wanted us to draft at 11, prior to acquiring Wentz, will still be there when the Skins draft in the 2d.

That's a bad assumption

*In my opinion* Dotson was a reach *at 16*; and Iíll assume again we couldíve traded back to the 20ís, added another pick, and Dotson wouldíve still been there.

Honestly the most crucial day is today
Yeah Jeudy has been a bit of a disappointment no doubt. But he now has a huge upgrade at QB. Big year for him. He has no more excuses.

And you'd be pissed off if we had traded to the low 20s and he wasn't there.

I think given the run of WRs, the team couldn't have traded too far down, if their goal was to get a WR and picks.

Re: Welcome Jahan Dotson, WR PSU - 1st Round Pick

I think drafting a QB in the 3rd or 4th round is more of a realistic option.

Re: Welcome Jahan Dotson, WR PSU - 1st Round Pick

Mayhew said they had offers to trade down from 16 and I would bet that Green Bay and Kansas City were among them looking to get the last of the top echelon WR, so it would be no certainty that Dotson would have been available at 20.

Re: Welcome Jahan Dotson, WR PSU - 1st Round Pick

Don't hate this pick at all. Got a playmaking WR and an extra 3rd and 4th. Seems like a great kid with arguably the best hands in the draft. He was a one man wrecking crew at PSU and wasn't doing it all against inferior competition.

Especially since only one QB was taken in a first round. Which tells you how poorly teams think of this draft class.

Re: Welcome Jahan Dotson, WR PSU - 1st Round Pick

For me, the trade down was crucial--nice move. They went with their top WR on the board at that point. Fine. Also will return punts? If we get talent in this deep draft in the 3rd and 4th, it's a win. If the kid balls like he did at PSU, win-win. Grading talent in drafts is a hard job, despite all the mocks out there...

He KILLED my Terps. Also, he didn't have the best QB, was obviously WR1, and still put up a ton of numbers. I'm sure he can put on a few pounds for the crowd who's concerned about his size.

This is about where I am. I don't feel about this one like I did when Jonathan Allen slid all the way down to us and we got what felt like an absolute bargain. But I can definitely see how Dotson could be a big help for the next five years. From a moneyball perspective, a productive WR on a rookie deal is about as good as it gets. That's why so many went in the first round.

Secondly, any grade on this pick is incomplete. You have to wait and see who we get with the 3rd and 4th rounders we acquired in the deal. Don't forget, and this is not directed at you Matty it's directed at the 'hate the pick' crowd; it's Dotson plus __ plus __ vs Jameson Williams or Kyle Hamilton at 11. It's not Dotson vs.

Not best or Worst pick. Had a feeling we were taking him yesterday he played at our local high school in town and word was that they were taking him. I wanted Hamilton guess the front office did not like him.
