Chris Rainey ( RB ) = waaaay too small
Kendal Wright ( WR ) = dont want him in the 1st, too small. Too many WR's available with size when he's being picked.
Yeah, a pick at number 30 is almost a high second. So you are saying that undersized
WR's like Mike Wallace, Steve Smith, Desaun Jackson,Wes Welker are not worth the 30th pick??
So you're comparing Wright to 4 of the top 10 WRs in the league now? Thats like me comparing Randle to Fitz and Megatron because they are 6'3"+. For every Wallace, Smith, Jackson and Welker there are a thousand other small WR's that fizzle. WIth the makeup of our WR corps under contract for the next 2-3 years, Manningham and Crabtree, both smaller possession type WRs, what benefit would another smaller possession WR do for this team? Also, its not like Wright is a burner.
Wright = 40 Yrd Dash: 4.61
Jackson = 40 Yrd Dash: 4.35
Smith = 40 Yrd Dash: 4.41
Wallace = 40 Yrd Dash: 4.28
Welker = 40 Yrd Dash: 4.60
So can he compare to Wes Welker? Maybe, maybe not. If we're going to pick a WR at 30, Id rather have a Randle, Hill, Jeffery than Wright since they bring a different dimension to our offense and can help in the Red Zone.
I love how decorated Wright has been over his college career, but he DID have RG3 tossing to him. If you want someone with Wes Welker like potential, why not wait three rounds and pick someone who was even BETTER than Wright =
08 = 50 REC, 649 YDS, 5 TD
09 = 66 REC, 740 YDS, 4 TD
10 = 78 REC, 952 YDS, 7 TD
11 = 108 REC, 1663 YDS, 14 TD
08 = 46 REC, 687 YDS, 6 TD
09 = 89 REC, 1120 YDS, 15 TD
10 = 131 REC, 1622 YDS, 14 TD
11 = 83 REC, 1157 YDS, 10 TD
And Ryan didn't have a Heisman Troyphy winner tossing bombs to him. Why spend a 1st on a Wright when a Broyles will be there in the 3rd or 4th, and he returns punts. I just don't see the value picking Wright at 30, again..too many WR's available with size when he's being picked.
