    That's what you decided to pick out of that post? Nice spin.

    I realize you see him that way. There's no doubt about it. No one is trying to take your opinion away from you or belittle it (your approach maybe). Many might not agree with it but... so? The fact that you don't think we should look at players we currently have to determine whether we should take him is also your opinion. Got it. Fine with it.

    Taking that and saying that "most" see him as a super star is a bit of a stretch. Why would NFL.com for example only have him rated at a 7.0? It would be true to say that most view him as the best receiver in this draft. Though I haven't seen many throw around the term super star when talking about him. You may be the first.

    And I'm not sure there is such a thing as an unbiased evaluation. I think you're getting a little silly with this. I can look at tape of the guy and see the receiver for what I think he is. I can watch and see if I think he is a very rare player for his position - one we are not likely to see the likes of again anytime soon. I can then look at our team and consider whether he is a real and significant upgrade to his side of the ball. If I see a prospect out there and he is a potentially great player and we happen to have a need there, that's going to sway my opinion too. I'm mostly a BPA guy at the top of the draft but not purely so.

    The problem is that I don't consider Watkins the BPA nor do I consider him strikingly better than the very young and unproven (either way) WRs we have. Nor do I see him as a game changing type WR as a pro or on this team. I realize you do and that is your opinion. But get that your opinion means nothing more to me than your average poster on the internet. I'm guessing you feel the same about mine. That's cool.

    LOL! What I really meant to say (I was just testing you guys with my other two posts) is that it would be virtually impossible for anyone who isn't a dyed in the wool RODite to resist the urge to let subsequent events influence their decisions. Whew! You guys passed my little test with flying colors! (y)
