Round 4: 3 top targets

Recommended Posts

I know WR and CB are where the value meets the need here, but I keep circling back to Michael Jordan.  We just missed on an interior OL last round (O'Conner) and I would love to get a guy who could actually upgrade the depth right now and maybe slot in to start soon.  This looks like the best on the board and doesn't seem to be a reach here.

Butler wouldn't bum me out at all, but I feel like you can always pick up a WR2 kind of guy much easier than a solid OL.  Think back over the past decade when it seemed like every season we were adding Edwards, or Holmes, or Burress, or Decker, or Marshall.  How many good OL have we added in that time?

I think if I was choosing, Jordan's my guy.

Not sure you can call Michael Jordan a no-brainer with Butler and K.Harmon still on the board.

I like Jordan and would not mind the pick. But I'm not sure he has any more potential to be a starting C/OG than Butler or Harmon have to be impact WRs that can contribute right away, especially Butler as a Red Zone target or #2 across from Anderson with Enunwa as a split end and Crowder in the slot.  

Agreed, but I look back over the last decade and there are always good WRs available via FA or trade.  Just look at our list of pickups including Edwards, Holmes, Decker, Marshall, Burress just to name a few.  On the other hand, good OL who can start don't seem to be nearly as common.  Those you really need to draft.  So given the choice of roughly equally promising WR or interior OL, I think I'd prefer the OL.  If Butler is *much* better of a prospect then I respect that, but does he start over Robby, Quincy and Crowder?  I'm also interested to see if Burnett develops.  We could use more talent at WR for sure, but it's a good debate for the moment.

I like Ferguson a lot. Very similar to Butler. Not quite the same type of player that Harmon is. Not sure if he is "better" than either of them. But I would not be upset of they took him. However, if you are talking about a split end that's pretty much Enunwa does best. So I'm not sure that we need a split end. We actually 'need' a guy that can play across from Anderson, with Enunwa as a split end, Herndon as a TE, Crowder in the slot and Bell in the flat. 

Can Burnett play that spot and does he have the potential to be a starter at it?
