With Lloyd producing the deep threat, the always present Gronk attracting cover and Welker's known rapport with Brady, Hernandez is a keeper and will def see his share of looks and passes. RB's are very uncertain this year, so drafting two good ones wouldn't be a bad choice. If someone's starter goes down you can always use one as trade bait if you feel he's not useful. Or hell, god forbid Marshawn goes down, you won't panic.
Don't get me started on Matthews. Just... uhg. Go with Aaron.
Hope I helped.
Well, you've corroborated what I'm kind of thinking, although I'm not quite as down on Mathews personally. A broken clavicle doesn't worry me. They're thin bones that snap pretty easily when hit just right and that's what happened with him.
But I think if I keep Lynch and Hern and draft say, one of the Jacksons and Martin, I should be sitting pretty. OTOH, keeping Mathews, I can still get a good RB but Hern could be gone. So I think you've help me solidify the plan.
I'm actually among those who feel that Hern will emerge as the #1 target in NE this year.
