There's no ****ing way I'd give up the #34 or the #77 for either. Maybe the 4th rounder (somewhere around #110, after the compensatory picks) for Maclin but even then, that pick could provide depth on the interior line or a starting ILB.
Either way, I'm not a fan.
How confident are you that Stedman Bailey will be more productive than either of those guys over the next 5 years?
They're established, productive, NFL players with their prime years ahead of them and a ton of skill between them. Maclin was Bailey before Bailey (likely better). Harvin was Austin before Austin (definitely better). And they've both made the NFL transition that trips up so many guys.
Eh, to each their own. If I'm investing in a QB at 1.1 this year, I'm going to want an immediate #2 WR and deep threat alongside Bowe. The 2.1 for Harvin or Maclin essentially guarantees that.
