This is why I am in favor of trading pick 30 to pick up a high second and third. I would much rather have 2 second round picks and 2 3rd round picks to simply increase odds of getting good developmental players.
High round 2 pick - Sanu WR- think he will drop to high second round, as there usually is a run on OL , qb's, DT's, early in the draft, WR's and RB's fall.
Low 2nd round pick- BPA between TE and OG/C
High 3rd round pick- Turbin RB
Low third round pick- Joe Adams
i say in the 2nd round would be better if Harbaugh feels this kid is worth it. i heard he is faster on the field than his 40 time says. He would be a pretty good slot receiver to develop also. I wouldnt mind devon wylie either tho...they are pretty similar
30 is way too high. I have him going at the end of the 4th round, and may drop him further. He could go to a team sooner, assuming they are OK with the substantial risk. This is why I have him going lower:
- Thin frame, does not appear built to take many hits in the NFL, scouts worry this means he may only be able to be a gadget player. Has valid durability concerns.
- Did not run very well at the combine (4.55), posting a 7.09 three cone time, which is not very good for a receiver that size, and was among the worst at the combine.
- Did not have much better of a pro day. Lifted the bar only 7 times, confirming teams' questions about his strength. His 4.46 pro day time will likely be adjusted to a 4.51-4.55. However, I believe he's faster on the field.
- Suffered a stroke a couple years ago. This is a serious issue that teams will look into, and some may take him off their board entirely for, possibly.
