    2. RG III
    3. Kahlil
    4. Tannehill

    I'll say, yes.

    I'll take WR Blackmon If you Please.

    Then draft another WR later in the draft. A great Offence helps the Defence.

    I'm going with Blackmon, but I understand the Richardson argument.

    Re: Richardson or Blackmon?

    Both please, and if you could throw in Kahlil and Claiborne too I'd appreciate it.

    Kidding asside, I'd take Blackmon, although I think Richardson is the better prospect, as I think we can get a quality back in the 2nd round. Plus we still have Jackson, and while we need his successor, Blackmon represents a much larger upgrade and an immediate starter, while Richardson upgrades a backup role.

    I'd take Blackmon, but being in a position to choose between the two of them @ sixth overall would be a nice place to find yourself.

    Re: Richardson or Blackmon?

    I like Richardson and Best Available WR at #33 -- That is greater than Blackmon and any other Offensive weapon at 33

    They say Blackmon isn't a legit #1 like CJ or Fitz ...well, Richardson is a legit #1 RunningBack like Pederson, etc...

    Re: Richardson or Blackmon?

    I'm going Blackmon and would address RB with one of our two first round picks next year. SJ can hold it down one more year. That being said not sure what Fisher and co would do.

    Gotta go with Richardson.

    In Fisher's offense, he would be much more important and would play a much bigger role down the road, which would lend itself to the Rams getting more for their money.

    By next year, he'd be the feature back whether Jackson's here or not, IMO.

    Re: Richardson or Blackmon?

    if we get richardson.. look at how our offense will be be on the wide out.. amendola (okay) salas (average) pettis (LOL) alexander (good-injury) steve smith (ehhh) looks like bradford would have no one to throw to besides amendola just like his rookie year.. IF we draft blackmon.. he will stretch the field and we can get the slants all day and other 15-20 yard routes by him

    Re: Richardson or Blackmon?

    Shocked to see Richardson got that many votes. Blackmon hands down.

    It's a passing league and we already have a top five running back.

    IMO Richardson only comes into the conversation if both Claiborne and Blackmon off the board, that is not to diminish him as a player, its just that this franchise is not in a position to have luxury picks, which is exactly what a back up running back is.

    Re: Richardson or Blackmon?

    Went with Richardson by the slightest, most minimal of margins. Start grooming Jax's back-up and replacement NOW.



    Since Blackmon will be gone, select best WR available with our next pic come draft day.

    Michael Floyd --- ?
    Stephen Hill -----?
    Rueben Randle --?
    Alshon Jeffery ---?
