    Yes, the trenches are critical in football at every level. But, you're still underestimating the value of those fancy toys called WR's.

    what i really want the team to do in this draft:

    trade down multiple times with a goal of stockpiling picks in the 25-55 range

    I think you pick a guy like Lamb not entirely out of need, but because you don't want any other team to have him. He's an absolute beast and I would be pissed if we took some 'Bama lineman or some other future nobody instead of him.

    This. All day (pun not intended) this.

    you don’t pass up talent bc you suck somewhere else. Particularly not when you could use that talent too. All things equal you draft need. But even I say “equal” I mean equal! Say no to Levi brown!!!

    Not really. Let’s look at the past 20 years.

    Fitzgerald
    AJ Green
    Randy Moss
    Terrell Owens
    Julio Jones
    Megatron
    Antonio Brown
    Odel Beckham
    Dez Bryant
    Marvin Harrison

    how many championship do all those hall of famers have combined?

    Yup. You don’t need a big time WR to win in the NFL.

    I agree here.. only if we have a new gm. We have seen this movie before and fixing the lines will never be a keim strong suit, imo. Even with a plethora of picks

    Let's start rebuilding now before the trade deadline. For me that would be PP for Jet's Leonard Williams.

    That’s faulty logic. There are HOF players at every position that don’t win a championship. Doesn’t mean they didn’t increase their teams ability to do so. The cards don’t come close to reaching a super bowl without Fitz putting them in their back and carrying them.

    better argument would be to take all super bowl teams (I’d argue that any team that makes the super bowl is a good indicator because in any given Sunday . . . ) and look to see if they had a dominant wr.

    I get what you’re saying, but we have to address the issue at some point in our franchise. There will always be shiny new objects and sexy skill position picks, but we simply aren’t getting it done.

    It’s like having a severe engine issue but telling the mechanic to slap some Flex Tape on it so we can buy new rims each year.

    The problem with Keim is we are continuously trying to draft replacements for guys he drafted just a year prior.

    Agree. If the right trade downs are there it has to be a strong consideration.

    you need good WR but what I’m saying you don’t need that high dollar star. A great QB with time to throw and the threat of a running game will find open guys.

    the better question is what if we had drafted Big Ben instead of Fitz in that draft and put him with a lot of those teams.

    Yea, you don’t really need great WRs, but not dudes you just got off the street.

    I still prefer Jeudy but you can argue Lamb is a great fit because he's so good after the catch which in our offense is a big deal

    The NFL is not college football. PLays like that happen maybe once per year in the NFL.
