We do need WRs bad and the elephant in the room is , when will AJ start declining and who will take his place .
I don't like the QBs that much either . I would take a flyer if one fell to the 5th .
I thought about the bigger guy's up front but thought that Short really fit what Wade has asked of the defensive linemen since he came here - He's not asking them to plug holes , he's asking them to get up the field. Short can do both.
Both of the WR's I took have similar size and measurables to #80 .... That elephant in the room had a lot to do with not only the position but the type of players at the position I went with.
I think AJ will give us at least two more years ... beyond that , its possible one of these kids grows into a #1 and who better to learn from than a future HOFer ?
I'd be following the Steelers blueprint of building talent and depth at the OLB spots .... they have been able to do it for ... ever , with little drop off over the years.
QB .... we've got a "decent one" and a capable backup. We werent going to upgrade the decent one if we had the first pick in the draft. I dont believe we would upgrade the backup beyond the first two selected.
