If this scenario plays out, I'd prefer picking Thomas. You can't use good WRs if you don't have time to throw.

More importantly, you can't be a balanced offense if you can't run. Thomas can help us do both, and I can't see why some can't grasp that concept.

Maybe Johnson is a better player. Should we draft the next best OL if Thomas is not there?

Ugh, no thanks. LOT > WR and the talent here has a similar grade so positional value wins.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Ideally, if Thomas is gone and CJ is there, we're probably in position to get the best trade offers. Not saying we will, but if we can trade down and land another early 2nd round pick while maintaining a relatively high draft slot, we can re-stock the DL and still have a shot at an OT prospect like Levi Brown. Giving us a chance to shore up the trenches in a big way..

Ideally, which usually means unlikely..

We won't trade down far enough to get Brown. He's a 10-15 player.

You don't pass on CJ to draft Levi Brown later. We should only pass on CJ if Thomas is available, if not, CJ should be the pick.

Well, if we trade down to 10-15, why not?

I also want Thomas, but CJ can help us run too.  No more 8 and 9 man fronts with Galloway and CJ.

It wouldn't be passing on CJ to draft Levi Brown later, it would be trading with somebody who covets CJ for the opportunity to add another day 1 prospect where we really need it, OL or DL. Brown would just be the OL prospect we could target if we do trade down...

But it's just one scenario...

It doesn't matter who you have as WR if the QB doesn't have time to throw.

It would take way too much for teams to trade up from 10.

Personally, I'd rather we run by virtue of a dominant OL than a pair of fast WR's. And lack of OL will haunt you in the playoffs more than a lack of WR's..

Yea, you're probably right. I'm just throwing out ideas, really..
