sadly if he kills the combine a 6'4" 20 yr old will get picked before 30. thats why i hate picking so damn low unless its 32
I agree. 6'4" and 20 and huge upside will go higher. Especially if he runs fast. I doubt he's available at #30.
Everyone is speculating he goes before we even get to pick now...
How many WR's does everyone think will be picked in the 1st round? How many other 2nd tier (just outside of elite) WR's are gonna have great 40's at the combine? There are other draftable positions in the top 30 picks, 3 of the top 30 are already locked in at WR, 2 at QB, 4-5 offensive linemen, anywhere from 6-9 DE, DT, or 3-4 OLB's (combined), 1-2 LB's, and anywhere from 5-7 DB's based off most draft boards. Giving a range of 21 to 28 picks just about set in stone based on BPA, allowing upwards of 9 spots left open before our pick.
Those 9 spots could go any # of ways, but theres still Fleener or Allen (most likely one TE will go in top 30), Ashlon, combine studs, Burfict, teams reaching for Tannehill and other players. There could very well be a run on receivers, but with the high miss rate for 1st round WR's it's not as likely as say a run on DB's or Tackles. IMO the run on receivers will happen, but it wont be until the early-mid 2nd round when teams are wheeling and dealing to move into a position to get "their guy" without giving him a 1st round label. Just my $.02.
