Unpopular opinion, but I don’t think we should take a receiver in the first round.
– Sadly, we have a history of drafting first round receiver busts
– Deep draft for receivers, let’s test that depth in the mid to later rounds
– We have ample pass catchers already in Thielen, Cook, Rudy, Bisi, Irv, and more
– There are many other positions where a first-round talent would be better acquired (corner, DL, OL)
– We have proven capable of drafting receivers in the later rounds

I’m actually of the same opinion. Somebody has to fall, and it’s probably going to be a receiver.

At first I was all in on drafting a WR with 1 of the 1st round picks, but lately I’ve came to the conclusion that the depth of this years class plus other more pressing needs, OL-CB-DL, that what would normally be a late 1st round, early 2and round WR will be available in the 3rd.
Unless 1 of the top 3 falls to 22 or 25.

I am feeling exactly the same way. If we don’t trade up or down, and unless a big prospect falls, I want to go OL/CB in the first. This is the deepest wide receiver draft in recent memory and our organization has a better track record drafting cornerbacks than wide receivers in the first….

I feel like the drafting of WR in the first is so boom or bust, especially after the top 10. Obviously there are exceptions, but Treadwell and Patterson both immediately come to mind, and I would rather see them get a decent DB or serviceable OL then take a chance on a mediocre WR.
