Shorts or Tate?

I read something earlier in the week that asked the question of how many Jaguars could start on the Seahawks, and the report said that only 2 could. Looking at that, I decided I wanted to go position by position and see what players could start on Seattle that currently play for the Jags. For our purposes, we're not counting injuries, we're not counting suspensions, we're not counting age or salary, and free agents (with the exception of retired players like Brad Meester) are up for discussion (for example, in this scenario, MJD is still on the Jaguars).

I also decided to use the 3 wide receiver formation (since the fullback is slowly becoming a dying bread in the NFL), and had no problem picking the first two receivers. Percy Harvin is the best receiver on the board, and we all saw that in Super Bowl XLVIII (like I said before, we're not counting injuries or injury history or suspensions, etc.). Then, as the #2 wide receiver, I found one of the few players that could actually start on Seattle, and that was Justin Blackmon. When Blackmon is actually on the field, he is tough to stop. Having over 400 yards receiving in 4 games is impressive, and he's got so much raw talent that it's a shame to see it somewhat go to waste.

At the #3 wide receiver spot, it's a bit tricky. I'm torn between two wide receivers for the #3 spot, and it's between Cecil Shorts III and Golden Tate. Both receivers have similar stats (and Shorts probably has back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons without injuries), and both receivers are assets. If I had to pick one, I'd lean towards Shorts, but this one is a bit of a toss-up for me. If you had unlimited cap room and could only choose 1 player, what would the player be- Shorts or Tate? And for anyone interested, I can make another FanPost saying how many Jags could start on the Seahawks once I finish doing my research.
