IMHO- Offensive Line is the greatest need we have this year. I know that is not a flashy response, but the battle begins on the front line.

NO to a WR in the first. If D. Jarrett happens to fall to our spot in the second round, it would be very tempting to take him, depending who else is still on the board. I think for the future, he would be a great compliment to Holmes. As for the present, he would look real nice in a 3 receiver set, with him and Holmes on the outside, and Hines in the slot. Good luck stopping that on 3rd and 5!

If no Jarrett (or another WR of that caliber) in the 2nd, I feel we need to draft one with one of our 4 picks in the 4th and 5th rounds.

You can get a good receiver in the later rounds. The same can't be said of other positions of need we have. Another receiver in the first round and we're starting to look too much like the Lions for my tastes.

any postion you draft in the first round is a crap shoot. there might be 4 or 5 players that are a lock other than that you never know. as far as drafting a WR in the first round.... we have a bigger need at LB. we have no depth at that postion.

I think we won't see a WR drafted until the 4th. But I think we need one there to give Wilson & Washington some competition. I like Washington more out of the two.
