    BB to double down on WRs in 2013?

    He did it with the TEs in 2010 grabbing Gronk with the 42nd overall and then coming back for Nando at 113 in the 4th round.  We all figured it was a position of need clearly and great value for the John Mackey award winner who dropped due to some grass smoking.  He then goes and doubles down again in 2011 grabbing Shane Vereen with the 56th pick in the 2nd and followed it up with Stevan Ridley with the 73rd overall in round 3, leaving us scratching our heads, until we starting seeing the results last year.  Now we have two young, cheap studs to help carry the load for years, learn together and push each other.  

    It seems like Bill likes this formula so why not do it in a draft that is rich with WR talent?  I think it's actually fortunate that we didn't get Sanders and would love to see this happen in the early rounds, along with getting a DT or DE stud.  Who do you like if Bill doubles down on WR talent in 2013?

    Seriously... how many post about wide receivers can we create in one day....

    And I thought Jake Bequette was the thread subject du jour?

    Can't we all get by with one thread on the same subject, especially one as specialized as drafting wide receivers?

    I hope not because BB's recent record with WR's and DB's through the draft hasn't been too good

    Regardless of BB's track record in recent years re: drafting wideouts, I don't see him drafting 2.

    Dont see drafting 2 WR with other needs. I think they come out of the draft CB, WR, OL

    With the amount of draft picks they have, I don't see 2 WR's in their drafting plan.  Not even if they exchange one of their picks for 2 later round picks.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they didn't draft any Wr's at all.
