Pretty unfortunate set of circumstances, but this is a pretty good year to go get a pass catcher or two in the draft.
I really liked what we saw out of Martin. But I think he was drafted to be a #3 or slot receiver. I thought he did a heck of a job getting open early in the progression, he just needs to do a better job of holding onto the ball. I think that's fine, for a rookie, & we're going to see that regardless if it's Julio Jones, or Kevin Martin.
Martin doesn't have that big play ability like Julio, but I don't think that's what we're looking for.
I think we're going back to the well, because there's not a lot of reason to believe Posey is going to be able to take the next step in 2013
