WRisk vs. WReward


After a fabulous Combine from this years crop of WRs I feel much less apprehensive taking one early (1st or 2nd rd) this year. The front office could have plenty of options for a WR at 27 as many teams will be focusing on the plethora of talented big men & QB busts. Allen, Patterson, Hopkins, Austin, Williams, Goodwin, and the list goes on. However, the same rules as previous years apply here; lots of potential, perfect fit, and 'good value' will be tossed around, but what is bark and what is bite. Which brings me to the meat of the argument....DAVID NELSON WAS RELEASED AS AN UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENT. He is perfect. A large, budding talent, yet one coming off an early season injury is sure to fetch a lower than usual, extreme value price. He's got Texas roots and with his size you've got the making for a very wide open field with which any number of Texan RBs can wreak havoc.

Lock Wade in the War Room, draft some defensive studs, fill in the gaps at LB, DT, get the scraps (or hidden talent depending on your perspective) of the WR/DB/OT in rounds 4-7 and get a (comparatively) proven commodity in Nelson. Let other teams develop these hot WR talents and let Kubes & Wade work their coaching magic with the core already in place.
