Give me Tate over Lafell any day of the week. Some may think he's not going to be a #1. But the guy is so explosive, productive and certainly not limited to the slot .
If Braylon does leave the year after, having Cotchery/Tate leaves us with a similar pair to the Hines Ward/Santonio Holmes combo.
Tate will never, ever have the impact of Fitz/Andre/Marshall (who does?). But he will be productive and a team can certainly win with him and another #2 WR, much like Holmes/Hines -- very good call there.
