For instance there are a million reasons why Mark Barron could legitimately struggle. Average pass rush, sometimes with the complete inability to get to the passer. One corner who can be shaky sometimes suspended, the other a FA with an up and down history. A 37 year old vet in his first year ever playing safety. Odds are not and were not in his favor. He has came out and produced. I understand it's different for wide recievers, but Mike Williams was in a very similar position in 2010 and made the most out of it. Blackmon needs to step it up and get the job done.
Lastly, it's not his fault he was drafted that high. Some people including myself like Floyd a little better. If there had been a better WR class I think he goes mid to late first. If I was you Id be asking some real questions about the GM's decisions in the past few years not just specifically this. I'm sure you guys are or some of you.
