In response to tenace4life's comment:
Take a stud receiver in the first round, over 6-2 with at least 4.4 speed or go with Stills or Swopes in the third.
Right now they have Ballard, Fells, Herman, Hoomanawanui and of course Gronk at tight end (even if Gronk misses some early games). With Washington and Vereen out of the backfield . . . and maybe Demps, he was a very good receiver at Florida.
Hernandez will be more of a wide out with Amendola and Edelman in the slot and they have Jones, Jenkins, Ebert, Aikens and Holmes on the roster so all they need is one more draft pick. I do not see Stallworth or Branch coming back unless it is to help develop a some of these other guys and to be on stand-by again this year.
C'mon man...your analysis is out of touch and looking at the situation thru rose colored glasses. Have you neen drinking from Rustys fountain of "BB will make it all go away"?
Demps already stated he will not be playing this year to concentrate on track
Washington will not take any offensive snaps, only ST snaps
Will Herman even be on the team? Will Jenkins? Holmes was released by WR needy teams Minn and Dallas.
Ballard is coming off of ACL and 18 months of inactivity.
Take a look at the "stud" WR's taken last year in the first round...Blackmon, Floyd, Wright, Jenkins...how much did they contribute? There isnt a Julio Jones or Calvin Johnson in this draft, and if there were, they certainly would not be available at #29.
Once again, it is on Brady to make it work, and the OL to give him the time to make it work.
