    Brown will make plays back outside. Sanders is a nice number two. We will draft a young WR but not at 17. Or I should say, I wouldn't at 17.

    Nope...he's a shrimp.

    Cowher's gone. No need to over draft a slot receiver.

    Solutions?

    How about scoring points in the red zone?

    Would suck to be a 'fan' of a team and but do nothing more than bitch and moan about their very move or non-move. I'm a big Pirate fan and don't complain about them as much as some do about the Steelers.

    I think you've probably just described 90% of the content of this board...

    Thing is, there are plenty of options at WR in this draft. Not sure if grabbing 1 in Round 1 is any more effective than grabbing a guy in Round 2 or 3. Some like Hopkins as an option- ok, but what about Wheaton in Round 2? that dude can fly. Some want a bigger guy like Allen or Woods in Round 1, what about Harper or Da'Rick Rogers in Round 2?

    The value drop-off from Round 1 WR to Round 2 WR is not that great. In fact, there's an argument to be made that some Round 3 WR's might be equally as effective.

    The same cannot be said for a few other positions, however.

    chadman is spot on.

    eifert at 17 would not bother me one bit.

    eifert, eric reid, darick rogers @ 1,2,3 would make eddie do backflips.

    You could blow Chadman over with a feather if a TE is selected at #17.
