Sorry about the mix up with Campbell going to Jags.
But with that aside, I still feel that our wide receivers are for the most part number 2 wide outs and do not measure up
to the likes of a D. Jackson, a Garcon, a Cooks or even an Antonio Brown.
Paul Richardson yes did improve as the season went on, but his separating speed doesn't equate with those of the receivers I just mentioned. And I do hope that Lockette fully recovers to his rookie season performance.
And if you had a chance to see any highlights of the kid John Ross from Washington that is the type of receiver who can stretch the field the way you envision. Once again I'm not saying we will ever get him , we can't, because of our draft position, but that's what you're looking for.
Second, again I'm looking just at the "measurebles", if we could add two players to our defense my wish list would be Myles Garrett from Texas A&M, and Reuben Foster from Alabama. Garrett is going to be a heck of pass rusher as he develops, and Foster despite his mishap at the combine is a flat out baller. No he isn't your choir boy, but with the right guidance that kid will leave his mark on a game. Again this isn't reality, but points to the type and style of athleticism we are looking for.
Because with the Patriots reinforcing their arsenal, I look at them as our real nemesis to another Suprbowl. We have to be able to defend their now improved speed at wide out and the additions they have made defensively to match them competitively. Again this is my perception that I'm sure many may not agree with.
Lastly, you have to look at your weaknesses objectively and address them from the highest priority down. And don't be afraid to tell someone that it's time to move on. Additionally don't try and sign the least expensive free agents and put a team out there that falls short of expectations.
