I wouldn't pass up a stud LT for a Julio "dropsie" Jones caliber player. And I don't see Blackmon on the same level as CJ or AJ. I could be all wrong about him and he may be Megatron Jr.
Think about the '03 draft. We used your strategy and we took AJ and passed on Jordon Gross - make no mistake, I looooove me some AJ. Suppose we had taken him and then, instead of Bennie Jopru we took Anquan Boldin. Would we really be worse off?
This is all speculation of course. Plus at this late date, I cannot imagine this team without A.J.
Since there's really no way to know how things would have unfolded...
We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.
