Damn

I hate we can't ever get those sweet players. But have to keep telling myself everyone that goes pushes someone else down.

Troy Franklin is a stud. Speed to burn, sticky hands and very fluid athlete. I hope he's available to us but he seems the type that would rise in the pre-draft process.

Only Franklin in 1.

I think I want to see combine results for Corley and McMillan before I'd commit to a yes on moving up in the 2nd because their games is predicated on speed. The rest, probably not.

Which WRs would you be looking at end of RD2? End of RD 3?

I know everyone is on the Legette train but I'm not. He's got an okay skillset but what took him 5 years to be okay? Nah.

Guys I like might not be whatever the consensus is. I think in terms of 3rd I like:

Will Sheppard, Vanderbilt
Isaiah Williams, Illinois
Ricky Pearsall, Florida
Roman Wilson, Michigan
and keeping an eye on the Kent State to North Carolina transfer Devontez Walker.

We'll see where it shakes out.

Was really hoping to get a read on Legette during the MU game, but he got knocked out pretty early.

At first glance he's a lot taller than Drake London or A.T. Perry, who were drafted in recent years, and is far more complete of a WR than Perry who no one's heard from since the draft. Dude's fast too!? WTF?

I could honestly see him getting moved/drafted for TE at the NFL level. He would need to gain about 10lbs which should be easy and at his age that might happen naturally as his body matures with NFL strength regime.

His measurables line up with Pitts and I see similar style of play.

Some of the things that stick out to me are 38 inch Vert at his size in High School! Thats pretty crazy.

Could easily see Veach taking this Wilson with the thought of sitting him behind Kelce and two TE sets until Kelce hangs up the cleats and focuses on babies with swift.

I hate to see Veach keep taking 2nd round WRs that will never be TRUE #1 guys for Mahomes because the value at the end of round 1 just isn't there for WR either.

Wilson could be a guy Veach falls in love with and has a shot at him with our 1st rounder because he will be a some what project type player.

I kinda agree on Legette. If he goes to the 49ers he's probably a stud. That big and quick, if you can scheme him short passes that let him get a little head of steam, goodnight. But everything else looks...iffy. Maybe he's AJ Brown but man he looks very raw, pretty stiff. I dunno, I don't trust the hype and more importantly I don't see how he works here.

I think he's was more DK Metcalf. I don't love that it took him this long to be productive either but I like the big chunk plays he creates. He doesn't need the ball like a #1 WR, 8-10+ times a game to be effective. He only catches 5-7 balls per game but creates when he does. That could be a good fit for our spread-it-around style offense. He's more athlete than WR I think.

Tall usually equals doesn't corner worth a damn. AKA can't really separate and uses size more to get open and we ain't about that here.

Yeah I seen that comp, probably better in terms of big, quick but linear. Agree re athlete first. I think we probably have guys who can do the underneath and YAC stuff more than we do the field stretchers though

I like his teammate, Antwane Wells, better for this offense but damn that foot injury this year may mean he won't declare.

I said last season that Odunze was going to be out of our price range and I think that's still the case. Looks like the #2 receiver in the draft to me.

But Jalen McMillan won't be. That's been my target since LAST season's draft as a long-term complement to Rice and before he got hurt, he seemed well on his way. I think he'll be back this week and go right back to being the same dynamic threat he looked like last season and to start this season.

I'm hopeful that being the 2nd guy in Washington (especially with the injury) gets him into range for us in the 2nd.

2. Malik Nabers, LSU
3. Rome Odunze, Washington
4. Emeka Egbuka, Ohio State
5. Troy Franklin, Oregon
6. Malachi Corley, Western Kentucky
7. Jalen McMillan, Washington
8. Tory Horton, Colorado State
9. Keon Coleman, Florida State
10. Xavier Worthy, Texas

And a bonus "don't sleep on this guy"... Will Sheppard, Vanderbilt.
Shoulda kept scrolling...

So yeah, your list would suggest that he's a candidate in the back of the 1st still, even with the injury.

I think I'd be fine with that.

For me I don't mind that Legette is a late bloomer- that'll be discovered in the predraft process why he wasn't productive in his first 4 seasons. Took him awhile to become an effective receiver but his production this season is outstanding. His physical traits and athleticism really stand out and I would imagine there is still a lot of refining that can be developed in regards to his route running ability.

Whenever I see these big WR prospects, I specifically want to know how fluid of an athlete they are, stop/start ability and their ball skills (ball tracking, high pointing, hands catching). I think Legette's top end speed is great, his ball tracking and high pointing the football are very impressive and he is a very fluid athlete. I don't think his ability to change direction is elite, but his ability to stop is great which makes his curl/comeback route a weapon.

I'll be surprised if he isn't a round 2 selection in this upcoming draft- his traits are simply too good to pass up.
