This is where I never understand the rationale of fans wanting to spend a 1st round pick on WR's.

So many things have to happen before a WR can ever get a chance to catch the football, yet so many teams that look for the next Steve Smith, find the next Sinorice Moss. Or the next Braylon Edwards, David Boston, Troy Edwards.....and the list goes on.
1st round pick can land you someone who has the ability to win big games for you though. Santonio Holmes might be an idiot, but his talent was the reason why we won #6

I agree, Harrison's INT, Ben's arm, the defensive performance gave him the opportunity to "be great".

But if your QB cant get him the ball, the O line cant block for the QB, your Strong Safety cant make the INT for TD to get you there and the Defense cant be the #1 defense in the NFL...........that 1st round talent WR is doing nothing. Much like the situation in NY Jets camp now.

WR is one of the last positions that you need to fill on a team to be successful. We will be fine with Brown, Sanders, Cotchery, Heath Miller, Eddie Royal and a 3rd round draft pick if Wallace is gone.
