i guess i'd ask: has calvin johnson had the same impact as darrelle revis? what about patrick willis? would the lions have been better served taking revis, and picking up a wr in a later round? this year, everyone's been killing the brows for greg little vs. julio jones. does jones really make that team any better?
*shrug* i value wrs right about where i value rbs. you need one. and you need one with talent. but the idea that you need to grab an adrian peterson at the possible expense of other positions, i think, is ridiculous. draft the JPPs, and i think you'll come out better than the teams taking the aj greens.
The problem with this argument is that its too black and white. It depends on the value you placed on the individual talent.
For example, what if AJ Green was on the board and the best available DE was Quentin Coples? Do you chose a lesser talent at a more impactful position just bc?
It's all relative. And I think a stud WR is a tremendous asset to your team.
Justin Blackmon vs Clairborne? I'm taking Clairborne all day.
AJ Green vs Clairborne? I'm taking Green.
