Yes! Whether or not you like the possibility of Michael Crabtree landing with the Chiefs or not, you’ve gotta admit that his inclusion in this draft class instantly makes it stronger. It’s not just Crabtree either — it seems like everybody is coming out. That not only bodes well for us potentially trading down, but also for our second- and third-round picks.
Personally, I think Crabtree is a no-brainer, as he is the safest pick on the board and the player most likely to contribute immediately. One way to ensure that a quarterback succeeds is to plug him into a golden situation. Look at Kurt Warner. MVP candidate each time he has two Pro Bowl-caliber receivers to throw to, back-up or Arena/World Football League fodder when he doesn’t. He’s a pretty good player, but I’m just saying. Here’s what the National Football Post had to say about him:
Has very little flaws to his game and might be the most polished receiver prospect to come out since Keyshawn Johnson. Crabtree looks like the safest pick in this years draft and will likely go somewhere within the first ten picks.
If the 2009 draft class was a cave, then Crabtree would definitely be my power animal. Somebody has to replace the gaping hole in my heart that was once reserved for Matt Ryan. And, yes, I just had on Fight Club. Check out Crabtree’s highlights after the jump:
