I've been banging my head against the wall for the past couple of days over this situation, but how is Kendall Wright not the #1 receiver available in this draft? Aside from his 5'10" height, he seems to have no deficiencies. However, he does have a TON of upside. Here are a few things.
Reported 42-inch vertical
4.35ish 40-yd dash
Ability to play either inside or outside
Good, soft hands
All of these projected numbers will be cleared up by the end of this week, but I don't see how Blackmon is the better prospect (aside from size, which Blackmon is only 6'1). There are quite a few notable NFL receivers under 6'0", and I'll name a couple of 'em: Greg Jennings, Steve Smith, Desean Jackson. There are others, but these are the guys that Wright is being compared to. What other player in this draft could add the explosiveness that the Rams have been missing? I think that if we end up trading down out of the top 5, he might actually be our best bet.
Okay, I've said my piece. Let the hatred spew if you must.
