I think that warrants someone taking a flier in round 2. Not a great track history with NC WRs though. He's a lot like Dyami Brown and that scares me because I liked Brown more than I should have.
He wasn't struggling to separate too bad, that's why the drops seemed so egregious. Also I think his college drop rate was below 7% so not great but not awful.

I guess the bigger issue is his lack of production when combined with that. I know there were mitigating circumstances but maybe I'm just finding excuses. Either way if I like a WR it's the kiss of death.

I could be speaking out of my ass but I'm quite certain it was 8.5% this year. The Shrine Bowl made Toney look good though.

As for the drops with Walker, I think they're more of a concern than they are with Worthy. That's why you're getting a guy with that kind of size and speed combo at 64. However, I don't think the drops are any worse than what I seen from Rice and Christian Watson in college, and they cleaned that shit up quickly after some early drops in their rookie seasons.
Here's the thing, by my thinking-

If we're going to move a tackle from right to left, why do it with a draftee?

Just draft a RT and move Taylor. He already knows how to play in the NFL, at that level. It's less of a mindfuck.

If I'm thinking about taking a rookie OT I'd rather have him as comfortable as possible heading into the season, not learning all new footwork.

I'd put a young guy by Thuney and be ok with it.

I've already said that I'm open to moving Taylor over as well. It doesn't have to be Guyton or whoever we draft. Let TC and the coaching staff sort that out.

I just think it's more likely to be the rookie assuming they're capable.

Sooo why not do that with Morris and use the pick for something else?

I would

If they don't want to, I'd just draft a guy to do it.

Morris has not shown enough to warrant handing him the LT spot. He canít handle bull rushers and is grabby with speed rushers. He is not the answer, at least not yet.

If they signed someone like Donavan Smith to a one year deal I would still prefer an OT at 32 if Guyton or Morgan are there. If not go best Wr available.

We have to quit thinking middle round prospects like Niang/Morris are going to magically erase their flaws.

Maybe Morris is your future Thuney or Smith replacement at one of those G spots while also being a swing T.

Looks like Ravens may get Guyton @ 30 and Morgan goes to the 49er's @ 31
Just what I have seen in the mocks I have seen. Does not mean it will happen though. Going to be a crazy draft for sure I think.
