Need a wideout?

Everyone remembers that the Dolphins took Eddie Moore instead of Anquan Boldin .... but do you remember 2006?  Miami - under Saban - had Chris Chambers and Marty Booker as wideouts.  And with the #16 pick, Miami selects Jason Allen, who still wallows as the fifth or sixth db on the team.
And on the board - selected 9 slots later - was a receiver from *THE* Ohio State University by the name of Santonio Holmes.  You know, the guy who took home the SuperBowl MVP last night.
Sure, they got Derek Hagan in a later round, but he's technically no longer in the league.
And they tried to make up for it by drafting Ted Ginn from the same school the following year.  But, it was too little, too late.  Now if Ginn winds up winning the SuperBowl MVP next year - or even being in the top 5 receiving - I'll rescind this statement.
