We passed on Julio because we had too many holes elsewhere. Now that most are filled on defense the focus shifts to the offense. Since Heckert's as apprehensive about RB's early as he is WR I don't think Richardson is any better of a bet than Blackmon, but ultimately the pick is probably going to be one or the other.
I see an angle in which we go Claiborne at the top then add a WR + RB with picks 22 and 36, but passing on the play makers at the top is a borderline reckless gamble for such an awful offense. It telegraphs what we're going to do the rest of the way, so if teams covet offensive skill position players they know they have to get in front of us. We'll have to trade up and sacrifice picks to ensure those guys. I don't like that and have to think that issue has been discussed in Berea.
In the end, I think we have to go either Richardson or Blackmon at 4.
