It's a deep draft for WRs.
The Bucs GM said they were going to take Barron at 5!
He said he thought he could still get Barron and drop down a couple of slots, but that he got nervous when Dallas moved up to 6. He actually thought we moved up to take Barron.
So, right or wrong, they felt they got exaclty who they wanted and grabbed an extra pick in the process.
I was just reading the stltoday.com site to see what they were thinking about the trade, and apparently they really liked Blackmon, but didn't like Floyd so much. They claim that the guy they really wanted was Jenkins, who went to the Niners. The main writer there claimed they didn't have him too far behind Blackmon. Kind of interesting.
I bet there's a run on WRs soon with several teams needing one.
