Are you kidding? Much as I love Welker, TJ Houshmandzadeh is a much better wide receiver. The problem is that TJ would demand a Moss-like contract once he hits free agency. And he's not going to get that here.
Any WR core with Moss/Welker/Gaffney is in good shape. I don't think they need to look into a WR till the second day. The Pats need to do some better mining for prospects regardless. They haven't hit on 2nd day prospects in a while now. Though in the 2008 draft they seem to have hit on some decent late guys like Wilhite/Slater. And Guyton and BJGE look rather lucky UDFA pickups as well.
