Taking a wr high in the draft is useless, unless you have the franchise passer to throw him the rock. Plenty of talent in later rounds. Better to take a bedrock position that high. Unless you think blackmon is the next megatron. A receiver will never be better than the guy throwing him the ball.

The NFL is a passing league and utilizes tons of spread concepts. Newton went from having plays called by number and a picture held up on the sidelines. If he can make the transition that easily to break every record he did, it shows the systems aren't as far apart as in prior years...
