In response to Low-FB-IQ's comment:
With the exception of Bethal Johnson which was out of left field I have no problem with BB's decisions on WR's. Chad Jackson did not work out but it's been already said by everyone that he seemed the part.
I would say his problem may be in his evaluation of the positions value more than the WR's themselves. They had not taken a WR higher than the mid to late 3rd rd since Chad Jackson.
I think every other WR taken was a 3rd rounder or later. Go look at the league and tell me how many WR's drafted that late are doing much of anyhting. "much of anything" to Pats fans would mean he's some sort of stud because let's face it that is exactly what every one is complaining about.
BB is probably waiting a round too late on the position. The stat leader board for WR's is littered with 1st and 2nd rounders. ROunding out the top 40 this past year are rare guys who slipped through the scouting cracks obviously.
brian hartline 4th round 2009
wes welker FA
brandon marshall 4th round 2006
steve johnson 7th rd 2006
victor cruz FA
marques colston 7th rd 2006 (TE turned WR)
lance moore FA
erick decker 3rd rd 2010
mike williams 4th rd (major character red flags)
Miles Austin FA
brandon lloyd 4th rd 2003
T.Y. hilton 3rd Rd 2012
Mike Wallace 3rd rd 2009
jeremy kerley 5th rd 2011
A single WR spread out here or there over many years by teams getting lucky on a guy in the 4th- FA Rd's(areas)
I think the combination of picking at the end of rounds in combination with how BB values the importance of the position has been more of the problem.
I'm honestly more worried about all the missed picks on DB's. My opinion is that you can win the superbowl with average to good receivers but you absolutely need top DB's
