Taking Blackmon or grabbing a Receiver in FA is a mistake.

The way i see it Receiver is not a need that needs to be addressed this season. When rebuilding a team you must work from the inside out, that is a trend that the Rams should follow. I know it is easy to get excited about bringing in a dynamic play maker, but those kind of players cant function without a solid base. The lines both Offensive and Defensive need to be solid all around before you can build the talent around it. I honestly believe our receivers are good enough to make us competitive. DX, Gibson, Clayton are all decent receivers with potential to be good under good coaching which i believe we have now. During our free agency our money is best spent filling the holes on our defense. Signing Finnegan, Griffin and Jason Jones from the Titans would fill some huge holes. Retaining Lloyd wont be possible he is headed for greener pastures in New England with McDaniels. In the Draft we need to address the Line. I wouldn't mind a trade with the Browns or Redskins, either way we would end up landing Reiff or Kalil (if we are lucky) and getting picks in return would be a big bonus. End of 1st Early second id love to see Fletcher Cox as our choice, that would make our D-Line formidable, young and scary for years to come. By getting Reiff or Kalil we could move Saffold over to Right Tackle, Jason Smith to Left Guard . That would give Bradford plenty of time to find his weapons who can and will get open when given enough time. If we take these steps rather then dropping money on Receivers who wont make an impact once they get paid (Look at Sidney Rice last year) or drafting overrated rookies like Blackmon who's success was a result of his offensive system and great QB play. He honestly is at best a 2nd round prospect. He is too short (6'1) and too slow (high 4.5 low 4.6) to be considered a elite receiver in the NFL. At best he will be a slow possesion guy like Anquan Boldin. If we are to take a Receiver lets wait till 3rd round and take a guy like Dwight Jones who has the Height and Size 6'3 225 and speed 4.4. But id rather stay away from this years receiver class. I hope to god we don't make the mistake of taking a 2nd round prospect at best at a position that dosen't need to be addressed as bad as our line. Please take the safe option and take an Offensive lineman in the 1st and build on the defense through the rest of the draft and free agency.. Look what that did for the 49ers in one season.
