We definitely need a big WR and hopefully we can get one in FA. I really like McNutt in the 2nd. We may either have to trade back to a high 2nd and get extra pick[s] or trade up to get him as I feel he'll be gone where we'll be slotted inn the 2nd.
There are always gems that fall through. Mike Wallace was a 3rd rounder and look at him now. I have real confidence in Baalke/JH to get someone.
Still couldn't believe Mike Wallace fell that far. 6-0 200 pound receivers that can run 4.33's don't grow on trees. Tack on his production in college and it was a shock he didn't at least go in the early 2nd. I gave Wallace a late 1st round grade. Steelers got a major steal. Same with Antonio Brown who I gave a 3rd round grade. I would dumbfounded that he made it to the 6th.
Right now I'm very interested in seeing what other underclassmen declare for this draft. There is not a heck of a lot of speed in this draft until the later rounds. Some 4th, but mostly 5th-7th round players have the major speed. Currently the only two players with track speed that are graded from the 1st-3rd tier are Kendall Wright and Joe Adams. Jarius Wright may get up there, and he's the fastest of this years crop so far (4.34 speed).
There is less "size" available among eligible underclassman that speed though, so our options aren't many.
