MadDog49er 2019 NFLDraft Niners Review

Anyone answer this question: It seems as though there was talent at WR in this draft but the abundance of talent at other positions in this draft forced the WR's to drop later in the draft.

If this draft was full of "normal" defensive players, would the WR's be drafted sooner than they were? Just seems like teams got some real good WR's in the second and third rounds but at the same time, it seems unbelievable that this good of talent would drop so low. Are the WR's not as good as we think they are or were the other positions that were picked in most of the first round really THAT loaded?

Combination of other positions being good and the WR class being so deep that players dropped.

Supply and demand - there were a ton of good WRs in this class, so a lot were available later on in the draft. It seems like we zeroed in on guys we liked rather than counting on the depth at WR to push our guys down.

Metcalf likely fell due to injury/character concerns. I'm not sure why AJ Brown fell to the 50s or Butler fell to the 4th round. With all the WRs that seemingly fell in this draft class, it's frustrating that we reached for our guys in rounds 2 and 3.

WRs are a bunch of Divas and I believe that's one of the reason why they drop ...

I'm really surprised talents like AJ Brown dropped so late.
