No. We have more pressing needs.

We should make it look like we will...and trade down for more picks. Somebody will bite.
Too many holes to fill to overstock at WR, despite the obvious talent of Crabtree. We have people to catch the ball; we need to get them healthy, and then find a way to get the ball to them.

He won't be available, but if he is of course we should draft him. He is an elite player and has the potential to be a Larry Fitzgerald-type receiver. Yes we have other needs but you don't pass on a player like that just to try and fit a need. If he is there at 13 he will undoubtedly be the best player available.

Beast against college CB's.... I think he may not be able to dominate like that in the NFL, he looks slow, almost no quick moves, out muscles players to the ball, he is tough to bring down, sure, but guys like LL, Palomalu and several other hard hitting DB's are out there waiting for him to lay out for the ball. I think he is a good player, but not like a burress caliber player.
#21 (36) This IS and will always be the High watermark where all new DB's are measured.

Oline is more of a meed but if it comes down to an olineman like Oher or Crabtree, it would be idiotic to go with Oher.

One of the "young guns" has chronic knee issues. If Crabtree was there we would draft him. He won't be. If Maclin is there I'm not sure they wouldn't take him. Neither will be there, more than likely.

This kid is the next great receiver. Snyder will grab him if he is available. Trust me Snyder will not be able to resist.

Maybe, but what about a DE or OLB?

No WR, including Larry Fittgerald, is worth the #13 spot in the draft. They just aren't that important!
