I've been wondering this for awhile. Welker needs to be protected by being off the line because he's tiny. Edelman has decent size (6'0, 190 lbs) - and should be even stronger after a full offseason to work out. He seems to be a natural at receiver and, IMO, I think the plan might be to have him take on the Gaffney role as a mid-range outisde receiver. He would have some technique to perfect in terms of beating the press but he picked up the finer points of the slot position so quickly I believe he could do it. This might explain the limited interest in pure outside guys while BB continues to look at more slot guys (Reed, McCluster, etc.). What do you guys think?
