    ...was that directed towards me? I'm in love with this trade, even though we gave up a future pick we're potentially getting a franchise WR.

    This kid is a first round talent. The dumb Texans afforded us this opportunity by taking Patterson instead and letting this guy slip to the second. Giving up a third next year is worth picking up a great first round value in the second.

    The texans took Hopkins. The vikes too Patterson.

    I looked through the first 16 pages of this thread. Happy to see I didn't say I loved this pick.

    Also, looking through these old draft day threads is pretty funny. All of you guys act like every pick is a going to be a solid starter.

    Haha I liked the pick but I think people liking picks and getting behind them is more to do with wishful thinking and focusing on the positive rather than the negative. We have the guy so we hope for the best and try to tell ourselves he's going to be good since thinking glass half empty is just depressing.

    Ignorance is bliss but the reality is if you get 2-3 contributors in a class you did alright.

    Lot of people had a 1st round grade on Hunter, we got him in the 2nd, still too soon to say if it was the wrong move. The guys we lost out on getting arent doing any better either.

    I mean yes we missed on a few guys at other spots, but in terms of WR's Hunter is still better than Woods, Dobson, and Terrance Williams, and all the other guys that followed...

    How in the world is Hunter better than Woods or Williams?

    You could make the argument he is equal to Woods, but I don't think there's any doubt Williams is better. Williams is ascending and will be a very solid #2 throughout his career.

    Justin Hunter is a bitchassbitch.

    I like Williams, think he can be good, but Dallas learned if they want to win they have to limit Romo's attempts. Stat wise I dont see Williams ever breaking out, hunter could tho, he's in a pass happy offense
