So now it's pretty much a slam dunk that the Pats will take a WR with one of their first three picks. Maybe even more than one.

The concept that simply having 74 catches makes someone a productive receiver is inherently incorrect. Within the Pats offense the outside receiver is one of the more favorable positions to play in the NFL. Teams focused on Welker attacking underneath, Gronk going up the seam, stretch plays with Ridley, and passes to Woodhead and Vereen. This leaves a ton of open space and one on one coverage for our outside guys like Lloyd. As we've seen in certain games like against Culliver, Jenkins, or Deion Branch vs. A. Smith when our receivers are able to capitalize on these matchups we tear the game open. The problem is our guys have been so inconsistent at winning these outside matchups, and they've failed us in big games when teams have dared us to throw it to the outside.

Brandon Lloyd was used as a number 1 receiver last year. He got 130 targets, and played almost every snap. The problem was he just didn't produce anything relative to the guys who played in a similar position across the league. Look at the Deckers, Colstons, Nelsons, and Nicks of the world. All those guys play a similar role as 1a type targets in very good offenses and all of them perform exponentially better than Lloyd did in that same role here.

Lloyd isn't dynamic at anything besides making 10-14 yard catches on comeback routes. That is fine for a lot of teams that need some possession guys, but we need someone who can attack vertically out of that outside receiver spot. We have 3 better possession guys to throw to, and wasting a ton of targets on someone who doesn't produce consistently was an enormous waste last season.
Seriously all of this. And suggesting that Lloyd could get behind the defense last year is almost as bad as when he suggested that Chad Johnson didn't get a ton of catches the first few games because defenses were focusing on him despite the fact that he was only in for three plays.

Mallett trade possible?

I cannot envision a team giving us a '14 first round pick as the article states. If that happens ...
