I was a huge Chad Jackson homer, so it hurts to make this thread. But when Brady comes back next season, we know he will have Moss & Welker under contract. It'd be ideal to bring back Gaffney, but can't take that for granted. That's about it for reliable receiving options, Kelley Washington has not proved to be more than an STer yet. So ideally the Pats need to a) bring a guy in to challenge Gaffney (assuming we can retain him) and also b) provide a different skillset [that was supposed to be you Chad!!]. Not to mention that long term, an outside receiver is still a general need for this team with Moss only signed through 2010. Any thoughts on potential WR prospects for the Pats? It has to be the most frustrating position to draft. Bethel Johnson, Chad Jackson...those seem to be the norm nowadays, Deion Branch is the exception. It seems its just generally hit or miss drafting a WR, and coming off of the Chad Jackson experience, I'm reticent to spend anything in the first two rounds on a WR, but I think it is relatively high up on the needs list.
