Yeah, but the problem is that if you've got an offense where the WR has to make reads and alter his route on the defense, he's got to be smart enough to read the defense. At least a little.

It's like with the Cowboys last year where Dez Bryant reads one defense and Romo reads another and Romo throws a pick-six because they weren't on the same page. If I've got a guy who's extremely talented but dumb as rocks and a guy who's somewhat talented but smart as hell and I've got a complicated offense, I'm drafting the smarter guy.
