    Colston
    McNeill

    Not much risk involved there. I'll take a sure thing any day.

    Besides, Charles Rogers was also a can't-miss WR.

      McNeil - He should have never fallen in the draft and will be a pro bowler for the rest of his career

      CJ - No explanation needed

        i would take mcneil and CJ. Mcneil because you are now almost sure he will not bust and CJ because you were always almost sure he will not bust

          McNeil and CJ hands down. McNeil is one of the most promising LT's in the league and has proved all his doubters wrong. I take CJ over Colston based solely on potential, nothing else.

            The fact that McNeill has survived one year in the NFL does not mean that he is a sure thing. That back complaint has not suddenly disappeared, it just didn't flare up this year. I hope for his sake that it stays away, but teams avoided him because of LONG-TERM health concerns, not just one year.

            As to Colston-CJ, don't make me laugh. Colston had a great year, but he benefited from an element of surprise, a good QB, a good offensive scheme, and the freedom of being a low-drafted rookie. The two middle ones should remain, but the others will disappear. There's no guarantee that he'll perform close to that this year, now that he is being expected to be a no.1 WR. He's not even close to CJ on a physical level, and while he has good hands and runs good routes - and don't get me wrong, I'd love to have him on my team - but he's just not the same calibre of player as CJ.

                  Calvin and McNeill. I don't think Thomas can do anything that much better in his rookie year that McNeill did and I think McNeill will only improve which is scary and Calvin, well, you know. Colston is a great receiver, but CJ has the tools to be one of the greatest.

                    Excellent point, McNeil could very easily have a very short career although I would hate for it to happen.
                    As for the WR's, Johnson certainly has the upside but has proven nothing yet. Detroit's record drafting WR's is pretty weak but I'd still take him over Colston and hold my breath.
                    And proud of it!!!

                      Long-term health?

                      You know, I'm not a huge NFL fan. I'm actually a much bigger fan of college ball (huge Auburn fan at that... followed McNeill for a long time), so I didn't see whether McNeill went down the drain or not towards the end of the season. All I really know about the guy is that I saw him starting for the "most talented team in the league," but beyond that, I couldn't tell you anything about his personal performance level. Just what I've read about him, that he was a great rookie, yada, yada, yada.

                      But what long-term health issues? There was never any health issues during his days at Auburn. He started almost 40 consecutive games for us.

                      I always that the reasons he slipped had to do with his mean streak, run blocking (he was the second-best pass-blocker in the draft), and the fact that last year's draft was loaded at OT.

                      It seems like everyone gets so excited about what could be that they forget about the talent they have. I remember when Carlos Rogers graded out to, what was it, a 98 on Kiper's list a few years back?

                      Pretty close, though not quite, CJ's grade of a 99 this year. I know most of the 99's don't bust, but nothing's a sure thing. Not even Calvin Johnson. Personally, I'd rather have a proven commodity, especially at a position like WR and OT, than take a chance on a college kid, but that's just me.

                      Now if you're asking me whether I'd keep JP Losman or go after a Brady Quinn, I'd go with the draft pick. QB, RB, DE, CB... those are the positions where you want that top-flight talent the most.

                        Man i'm a Saints fan but I have to go CJ. And I own a Colston jersey..

                        McNeil all the way because he just looks more athletic.

                          QFT.

                          Colston as a 7th round pick went from underrated to overrated very fast. People are acting like he's the first decent talent to fall in the draft (he was a better prospect than a 7th rounder) and turn out to be a half decent player. It's laughable to compare him to CJ though.

                            It's Laughable to say he's underrated.

                            Stats don't lie and Colston put up big numbers last year.

                            You do realize we're comparing a 1000 yard WR to a rookie WR who hasn't taken a snap in the NFL yet?

                            If anything Colston wins by default.
