But what I was saying is that WR position is in flux right now and that Sanchez could use a young big, fast, strong receiver that he can grow with. I'd be fine with Jeffery or Floyd, but I think we need that elite or close to elite talent in our arsenal to take our offense to the next level.
Haha happens to the best of us. I agree that the OLB v. WR is a tough choice in the first. I just think the value drops off a cliff for DE/OLB past our first round spot. Unless Vinny Curry made a miraculous fall to the 2nd I am not sure who you could tab to be a pass rushing solution long term for our D. The other thing is WRs of good talent level can be found in the lower parts of the first round. What I mean by this is that even in subsequent years, if we were again knocking around in the playoffs (ideally picking at 32
), we could address the WR spot late in the 1st. For instance even in this draft we'd at #32 we'd be looking at Sanu and possibly even Jeffery. The pass rushers never drop like that from what I can recall (maybe Dumervil... but he's the only one I can think of who was legitimately good already. James Harrison is what I call a shot in the dark type of find, not something you bank on if you have pass rush issues)
