Why Not Take the Best of the Best?

I understand the uprising concerns of my fellow rams fans. Will Long hold up? Is Bradford getting enough protection? I get it. But you guys have to realize that with the options provided to us in this draft, there is only one real solution here...

In a game with elite athletes like Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas, the impact a number one receiver can have on a program is insane. Giving a QB options to throw is one of the many things that can help mediocre quarterbacks become elite. So what's all this talk about grabbing a lineman in a draft that is knee deep in wide receivers? If Sammy Watkins is considered the best out of all these great receivers, why aren't we taking the best of the best? You can make the argument that Tavon, Bailey, Givens, and Pettis just need time to develop, but they also have to have a basic skill set as well. I am done with the Quick project. If he was going to breakout, he would have done it by now. He clearly doesnt want it enough so theres no use in keeping him around. Tavon will be explosive and in my opinion will definitely be an asset to our team, as well as Bailey. But we still have that missing link, and I believe that link lies in one of these three prospects: Watkins, Evans, or Benjamin. Let me explain. While the clear cut pick of the litter is Watkins, I am reluctant to believe that having all these receivers on the short end as red zone targets will help us reach the playoffs. If youre looking for a breakaway, speed receiver, with solid route running and good separation, then Watkins is your guy, but we already have a similiar asset in Austin. Evans and Benjamin are more logical because they are taller, have decent speed, solid hands, and, Evans especially, use their bodies to get between the defender and the ball, which would be vital in the red zone. These big targets will show us whether Bradford has been held back, or if we need to replace him with Mariota in next years draft (SPOILER ALERT)

This is just my take on our wide receiver position and in no way do I expect everyone to agree with me. Im just a 17 year old kid throwing in my two cents and praying for the day I get to see the Rams in a Super Bowl and remember it. Thanks for the read and feel free to comment your thoughts below!
