If you want a tough over the middle chain mover that's great in the redzone, you draft Bowe. He never broke 1000 yards in college but his TD production was good.IMO he's a poor man's TO. Drops a few because he body catches and he's not a tremendous deep threat with average quickness are his knocks. Is most often compared to Key and that's probably a fair comparison. He's worthy at #22 if for no other reason than we could kick TO to the curb after 2007 if he acts the fool.
I like Meachem alot. I would be very happy if we drafted him. I've never seen him play, so it's hard for me to compare except by the production and combine numbers. I have seen Bowe play, which is why I'm more enamoured with him. Also, he was a stud at the Senior Bowl, which shows he can compete against top talent. Usually that's a decent indicator of how you will play in the NFL, not always. I think Ware's Senior Bowl work put him solidly on our radar. That, and I suspect the Cowboys knew Merrimen was going to flip his agents to the Postons and lost interest (or was in Rosen?).
