Guess the saints deeply regret getting meachem.
Looking back at the drafts over the years, if you get a solid starter at the end of the first round you did good.
This thought that you have to draft a #1 there is ridiculous.
But that said, there's nothing saying Hopkins can't grow into a 1 after Andre is retired.
You guys are throwing out too many names without even looking deeply into those situations first.
For example, the Saints are a spread team; and like I said, a team like that can use two good receivers.
Wright led the Titans in catch as a rookie with 18 more than Washington and 19 more than Britt. Obviously, they liked to use him in the short game a lot (and he was out for one game as well).
Was A J Jenkins a good move for the Niners?
Would the Cardinals be better off drafting a QB instead?
Same thing with the Chiefs.
The only time in his 4-yr career when Maclin had fewer catches than D Jackson was his rookie year.
